Booking Through Thursday: Wintery Books

Today's Booking Through Thursday question(s):
What I want to know today is … what are the most “wintery” books you can think of? The ones that almost embody Winter?
My new "wintery" book would definitely have to be Let It Snow, by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle (review coming soon!); it's actually three books in one, and they all revolve around a snowy night in a small mountain town. As Simple as Snow, by Gregory Galloway, also takes place partly during the winter, and it also has "snow" in the title. Another book that reminds me of winter, strange as it may seem, is Jane Austen's Emma. There's some pretty important scenes in the book that take place during and after a gathering in the wintertime. I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of them right now. :)

But you don't have to take my word for it. Visit btt for more opinions.

Emma's a good choice. I talked myself out of putting it down, so I'm glad to see you had the nerve to list it.
