Tell Me Something Tuesday…


Tell Me Something Tuesday is hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings and discusses a wide range of topics from books to blogging.

Question: What books do you like to cuddle up with in winter?


Answer: Considering this is my first *real* winter - I don't know lol I've never been a seasonal reader so I doubt it will matter.

I'm more of a mood reader so it's completely random as to what I'll pick up unless it's a review book that has a deadline.

My absolute favorite thing to do though is to curl up under the covers, with Fonzi at my feet, and get absorbed into a great romance novel - which I have not down in a looong time. So maybe I'll get a chance to do
that soon.

  1. Love that photo...very cozy looking! I don't go for specific seasonal reads. In winter I just continue to read what I feel like reading or what is next on my mental list. Horror is good at any time!

  3. I adore this photo. I don't really read seasonally too often - maybe a book here or there. I do like mysteries/thrillers all the time, but Fall/Winter is always an especially good time to read them.

    1. Other than a few Christmas novellas I don't read seasonally. It end to do genre binges instead.

  4. I don't read anything specifically for winter, but I do spend a lot more time reading. I like to read "beach reads" that I missed in the summer because I'm missing the sunshine and warmth.

    1. That's a good point. I used to read more in the summer when I lived in FL for the same reason. It's hot and I didn't go anywhere lol

  5. A reader who is also ruled by her fancies (apart from in December when Christmas themed reads that aren't actually about Christmas at all are the order of the month) I too love to curl up under the covers but in my case its not with a Fonzi but rather a hottie-bottie.

    1. It really should be a picture of Figment. He's the one usually on my lap trying to push the book away lol

  6. Best socks/slippers ever!

    Like you, I’m such a mood reader that I’ve never been inclined to read seasonally.

  7. I'm a mood reader as well, so yeah it's hard to predict. Totally agree though curling up with a book in winter is the best, especially with a nice warm mug of something. Hope you get a good romance read soon!

    1. The cold just makes me tired lol I don't feel like doing anything but in the summer I love to sit outside and read. But we'll see if that changes out here.

  8. I am not much of a seasonal reader either, more of a mood reader. I read all sorts of genres and tropes. My reading tastes don't change just because the seasons do.

  9. I wouldn't say I read seasonally, especially when about 50% of the books I read are ARCs, and I am reading ahead of publication. I don't think the season affects what I want or don't want to read.

  10. LOL, cute pic. Fonzi is so sweet. I hope you'll make it nicely through your very first winter!

    I've never been a seasonal reader and I know I'll never be...especially since I typically don't like beach reads or Christmas reads LOL.

    1. The seasonal rain has finally arrived. It pours almost every day. *cries*

      I read the occasional Christmas novella just because that's when they come out and I like novellas lol

  11. What a sweet doggo! I'm not much of a seasonal reader either, I always love the same genres no matter waht time of year it is.

  12. Hope you're enjoying your first winter (I've experienced plenty of them, so "enjoying" isn't really my word for it. LOL!)

    1. Well, I grew up in New England and lived in Western NY so I have lived through cold winters lol but it's been several decades. And living in FL has made me a wimp.

  13. I'm the same way! Total mood reader. The only time that changes just a bit is at Halloween, but I really just use it as an excuse to read more horror.

    1. Well, not ever - I grew up in snowy New England and lived in Western NY where it was VERY cold and snowy. Btu it's been a few decades.

  15. WOW! Enjoy the winter! I hear you about cuddling up. I love an empty house, under the blanket on the couch, cup of tea and my kitties. Sometimes I fall asleep though!

    1. That sounds PERFECT to me. That's the problem I'm having. I fall asleep instead of reading lol

  16. I'm more of a mood reader than a seasonal reader too.

  17. Yep I am the exact same! Especially because like- if I am cold do I really want to read about being cold? Hardly!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah I am definitely much more of a mood reader than seasonal too :P

  19. I don't do seasonal reading except maybe in October when the weather is perfect for gothic tales, or spooky stuff. 👻

    I love your bunny socks! 😍

  20. Mood reader over seasonal reader for sure! It just so happens though that I like reading festive reads in winter or the run up to Christmas etc but if I had a hankering in the summer I'd still read it. Christmas read on the beach... Sounds about right. :)

    I love the Fonzi pic! He's adorable.
