Told you I’d be back! Here are five more of my favourite books to read in the dreary months:
6) A New York Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin.
Yes, you guessed it, snow snow and more snow. There’s a flying horse in it as well.
7) Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.
OK, so not very wintry seeing as most of the book takes place in Italy, but the beginning scene where Dustfinger is waiting out in the night-time rain staring at the house is Hallowe’en-ish.
8) The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
For the snow again, obviously, and the faun under the lamppost, and the White Witch. Also Aslan. I read the Narnia series when I was a child, and still have those books…hiding in my wardrobe.
9) Angels, Arguments, and a Furry Merry Christmas by Karen McCombie.
A touch of humour. I love the voice these books are told in and I love the family in them. Who wouldn’t want to visit their favourite family at this time of year?
10) Viking! By Kevin Crossley-Holland.
And finally this one. (This list is not in order of preference, just random.) More Norse myths. Yep, can’t read too many of those.
That’s all of ’em. I can only apologise for the long jargon-filled links, but not being very techie I don’t know how else to put them in. Perhaps I will go back and tidy up after myself when I work out how. But first I have to hunt around inside my wardrobe…
