Book covers that make me think of Winter

Hello reader friends! Remember how during the fall I made a post about book covers that made me feel all autumnal? Well this post is dedicated to all the books that make me think of winter! Wintersong – S. Jae Jones With a title like Wintersong, how can this book not top the list of winter book covers? I think it’s super pretty because it has a snow globe on the front, and I love snow globes. I have yet to read this book, though. I should definitely pick it up in the upcoming months, because it sounds like a…

Authors I Want To Meet

My last blog post was all about the beautiful worlds that authors create, so this one is about the minds behind them! There are a few authors I would love to meet one day… Here’s to hoping they’ll one day visit my area! For some reason authors I love skip over D.C. in favor of other towns, and I never understand because so many people live in this area; the turn out would be amazing! Alas, I know that authors don’t have much say about where they’re going, but here’s to holding out hope anyway! V.E. Schwab – one of…
