Stars of the Season (Winter, 2018/19)

Winter months have reached their end, so fast that I still can’t believe it – blanket reads with hot drinks and watching the snow are mostly over (for now), and I can’t wait for real spring… but I can’t help feeling nostalgic about the season saying goodbye. For us readers there’s something uniquely warm and touching in winter atmosphere.

So, here I am showing you the books that touched me the most during this winter: many different books, but all got a 4.5 or higher rating from me.

If you’d like to see my previous lists:

Autumn 2018

‘The Kooky Kids’ Club’ by Robbie Yates



It seems like whatever comes from Robbie Yates’ pen, it ends up on my best-books-lately list! This time his book is about ‘weird’ kids who have a problem with fitting in, and it’s super sweet!

‘Slay Bells: A Christmas Village Mystery’ by T.C. Wescott





Since this post is about books read in the winter, of course there must me at least one Christmas novel. And what is a better winter read than a book that’s set in Christmas Village itself?

‘Blackberry and Wild Rose’ by Sonia Velton



A surprisingly good historical fiction debut that made me want to read both more books from the author and the silk weavers in 18th century London. Very good historical base and very good characters. Honestly, read it!

‘One Last Prayer for the Rays’ by Wes Markin





One of the best thrillers I’ve read in the last couple of months, maybe even year! Exciting, good characters, it instantly grabbed me and sucked me in. I didn’t have a moment of boredom!

‘Lord Of The Butterflies’ by Andrea Gibson




This is a modern poetry collection that surprised me with making me feel so deep and raw emotions. I also loved how the words sounded, which is not a usual thing for me when it comes to modern poems. I like my rhymes and verses. This book was perfect in every way, though.

Have you read any of these books? Which are your favorites that you read during the winter?

Let’s be nostalgic together, and then let’s run toward a wonderful spring! 😉

Hugs 🙂

  1. Wow, these books sound really interesting! I’m all for cozy mysteries so my immediately went to Slay Bells (though the title doesn’t really make it sound cozy so I could totally be wrong haha) but Blackberry and Wild Rose sounds really great too!
