Oh, my goodness gracious! Where did I go?
Honestly, I have no idea. Apparently I needed to go on an unannounced, unintentional hiatus for a month and a half. But I’m back now, friends!
As an update, I would love to type up every review I missed. And that’s…. a lot. Since I posted my Pride and Prejudice review, I’ve read twenty-three books. No, seriously. 23! I’ll make a list of them at the end of this post. Actually, I’ll make a list of ALL of my winter reads, since that’s what this post is about.
I got this wonderful post idea from Super Space Chick, whose latest video inspired me to share my favorite winter reads. Winter for me begins on the Solstice (not December 1st), and spring has just begun this week! It’s the perfect time for this wrap up!

That was intense
*checks self to make sure I’m human*
I guess not stopping to review books means I have more time to actually read the books. That, or I’m just…
If you’ve read books on this list, tell me what you thought of them. There are a few that I just didn’t like, but that’s for a different post, of course.
Of this list, what would you put as the top five?
Thanks for sticking with me through that random hiatus, friends.
