Ahhh winter. There’s nothing better when it’s cold and snowing outside then curling up under a warm blanket in front of a roaring fire with a hot cup of cocoa (or red wine) and a good book.
So, let’s start the season off right with a Winter Reading Challenge.
Unlike other reading challenges, this one is distinctly winter themed, with appropriate shout outs to upcoming holidays (Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day).
And to sweeten the pot, when you complete the challenge by March 31, 2020, send us an email with your completed answers, and you’ll be entered into a drawing to be one of three lucky winners to receive your choice of one of my books. (Read them all? No sweat; I’ll send you one of my upcoming books.)
Let’s get started with 10 winter book theme suggestions—read the book, and send me the titles and short descriptions:There's nothing better on a cold wintery day than curling up inside with a good book. My Winter Reading Challenge will get you started. Click To Tweet
1. A book that takes place in winter.
2. A book that references some sort of winter sport (ice skating, skiing, hockey, etc.)
3. A book that makes you shiver.
4. A book on your TBR list (To Be Read) you’ve been giving the “cold shoulder” to.
5. A book with a Valentine-themed romance.
6. A book with a romance that has “cooled” off (maybe permanently). (Bonus if it’s a thriller where one of the partners does something not-so-nice to the other partner.)
7. A book with a leprechaun in it. (Or just a character from Ireland.)
8. A book you feel “lucky” to have found.
9. A book with green on the cover.
10. One of my books. (But of course.)
Check out the links for book recommendations from me, and don’t forget to comment below and share the books you’re digging.

On Nun=mber 4. The book that you leave a cold shoulder to; does it need to be a Winder theme book or can it be any themed book? I have one I’ve been edging my way towards since 2016 with no success.
Great question — any theme at all.
