Listless Monday, Bring Your Hot Chocolate Edition

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

Today's list is inspired by the cold, wet weather we've been having here and around the country. Curl up with one of these and a cup of hot chocolate.

Any other books you want to add?
If you buy through my Amazon linkage,
I will get a very small percentage


  1. I've honestly never really thought about it. I don't think I read by season or weather, just my own mood.

  2. Yeah, I don't either, but I thought it would make a fun list. And if I worked in a public library, I'd love to make a display with these!

  3. It makes a great list. And it would be a totally AWESOME display!

  4. I love this week's theme. I didn't do a books by theme posting today (first time I ever missed a Monday), but I'm pretty busy with student teaching...I really want to read Ice! Great list here.

  5. Great list idea! It's been so wet and rainy here it just makes you want to curl up with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate!

  6. Oooh, I've been thinking that I need to find some snow themed books to cuddle up with lately -- thanks for giving me some ideas!

  7. Oh, great idea! I live in Canada, and a lot of the year is cold and snowy - I should know a lot more snowy books than I do! I would suggest Peak, by Roland Smith (another Mount Everest book). I love the listless Mondays!

  8. Thanks guys! Hopefully I can keep coming up with interesting list ideas :)

  9. I definitely have rainy-day-on the-sofa-books. For deep midwinter I would add:

    Mark Helprin's "Winter's Tale"
    Connie Willis' "The Doomsday Book"
    Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina"

  10. Andie, thanks for the suggestions. For where I live, I guess these are snowy-day-on-the-sofa reads :)


Love it when you comment!
