16 Blogging Days of Winter – Day 1


Favorite Books Set In Winter-Time

There are several books that I love that are set in winter time. The books in my list are all over the place. Some are YA contemporary, some are paranormal, but overall I suggest you read them all because they are the perfect books to read on a cold winter day.

  1. Let It Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle, Maureen Johnson – Three authors. Three Stories. One Town.
  2. Frostbite (VA #2) by Richelle Mead – This is the second book in the vampire academy series and let me just tell you, ski resort, vampires, danger, and love.
  3. The Fiery Heart (BL #4) by Richelle Mead – This is the fourth book in the Bloodlines series which is the spinoff series of VA. Even a cold California winter can get hot real fast. 😉
  4. Suite Dreams by Rachel Hawthorne – This is the perfect, most fluffiest book for the winter time. If this book were a drink, it would be a hot chocolate with marshmallows.

What are some of your favorite winter time books?


Day 25, 26, 27, 28, 29 & 30 of the 30 Day Book Challenge

Day 25: Favorite book you read in school

My freshman year of high school, I read To Kill a Mockingbird (by Harper Lee) and I absolutely loved it. I read ahead. I was obsessed with court cases and law at that stage of my life (I wanted to be a lawyer). This story is also about so much more than law and the judicial system. It teaches us a lesson; don’t judge someone by what others say about them. Rumors can be a 180 of the truth a lot of the time.

Day 26: A book that changed your opinion on something

Second Chance Summer (by Morgan Matson) changed my opinion on giving the past a second chance. By that I mean that if we have a second chance to make things right, we should do it. I was a firm believer of never touching the past, but in order to forgive and move on, sometimes we have to revisit the past.

Day 27: The most surprising plot twist/or ending

The ending of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green left me shocked and a mess. I never saw it coming. At all.

Day 28: Favorite Title

‘Forever’ is an overused word in a lot of YA love relationships. Forever is something we have come to expect in a lot of YA novels when it comes to the resolved love relationship. The book title, The Truth About Forever (by Sarah Dessen), brings to our attention that there is more to forever than we might think.

Day 29: A book everyone hated but you liked

Let It Snow by John Green/Maureen Johnson/Lauren Myracle

My love for this book is deep. Why? I don’t think I even understand. Actually, I do. I love that we have three authors interpreting a town in three different ways and characters are all seen differently yet somehow it all flows together and we end up with one cohesive book. I love it!

Day 30: Favorite Book

The book of Ruth from the Bible. The story in the book of Ruth is about redemption that transcends nationalities and unites everyone in God. It also has a love story. I always imagine how Boaz looked and just add thoughts of what he might have thought when he first saw Ruth. I would also love Noemi to be my mother in law. Such a sweet lady.

This concludes the 30 Day Book Challenge. Guys, its been fun! I really loved doing this (even though I know that I wasn’t exactly very consistent). I’ll try to do a different challenge soon or participate in a new feature soon! 

Happy Reading!
