The Weather Outside is Frightful...

Here in Michigan, we've undergone a flurry of wintry weather. In between snow, sleet, ice, and more snow, the roads are treacherous and the wind chill jarring. Plus, what with Christmas coming up next week, I thought it might be pertinent to direct your attention to this post I wrote a couple of years ago, with wintry weather book recommendations. Check it out if you're looking for something to read, plus these additions:

Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle

Click here for my review.

These three writers are enormously talented in their own right, but they also have excellent chemistry together and their respective stories flow together so well! This is a great holiday pick-me-up, or an even better gift!

Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn

Click here to read my review.

Levithan and Cohn wrote Nick and Norah's Playlist, and they're excellent at tagteam style novels. This one takes place in New York City during Christmastime, and after reading this book you must agree with Lily--New York City at Christmas must be an amazing place!

Crash by Lisa McMann

Click here to read my review.

For an after-the-holidays perk, pick up McMann's latest thriller, out in January! Crash takes place in a wintry Chicago and is a page-turner! This one might actually challenge Wake's position as my favorite McMann book...
