There is nothing more satisfying than curling up during winter with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Here in Colorado, the snow and cold weather often times tend to keep me inside curled up on the couch with a book. Don’t get me wrong, I love to go sledding and snowshoeing, but reading a good book in bed is pretty nice as well.
I have come up with a winter reading list full of books you won’t want to miss!
Love May Fail: A Novel
Follow a woman whose marriage just fell apart after she leaves her cheating husband and looks to find the answer to a question that often times arises. Just because we witness cruelty in our world, is there still goodness that exists? Portia goes to visit an old high school teacher whose world also begins to fall apart after a traumatic classroom incident and sees if she can find an answer there. Maybe the one man who believed in her can help her find her way once more.
Never Let Me Go
This chilling fictional story looks at what it means to be “special” in a society very different than ours. Follow along as three children, Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy meet again after so many years attending an exclusive boarding school. Watch as the three of them learn why their teachers told them over and over that they were special and their fight with the truth. Is it better to be special, or to fight for your own rights as an individual?
