Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Give Off Winter Vibes

Top Ten Tuesday banner

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, wherein each week bloggers list out their Top Ten.

The topic this week was actually “Books that Give Off Summer Vibes (or winter if you live in the southern hemisphere)” but I hate summer, and though I live in the subtropics in the Northern hemisphere, my heart is in winter.

The 10 Most Commonly Believed Vampire Curses

In fact during summer I am like: *middle finger to the sun* so I thought I’ll just do a winter vibe book list.

A Winter's Promise (The Mirror Visitor Quartet, #1)The Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos

It has winter in its name + it is actually set in a polar cap sort of place. Its an extreme sort of winter vibe, but I am too harassed  by the summer heat right now to be objective about it.

The Devouring Gray (The Devouring Gray, #1)The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

I don’t remember the season it is set in, but the creepy mist in the forest puts this squarely in winter vibe territory

Contagion (Contagion, #1)Contagion by Erin Bowman

There’s something about empty planets that just evokes winter. Maybe because space is usually so cold, that you are more likely to encounter an icy planet than a hot one? Anyway, winter vibes!

The Light Between WorldsThe Light Between Worlds by Laura Weymouth

The tone of the book definitely tends towards winter.

Spinning SilverSpinning Silver by Naomi Novik

This cover has a winter pallete, plus there’s a winter king, and it has an Eastern European setting, so wholly winter vibes.

Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy, #1)Wicked Saints by Emily A Duncan

Winter palette cover, takes place in a winter setting, plus there’s gothic feels – of course it has winter vibes

DeathlessDeathless by Catherynne M Valente

So. Much. Winter. Vibes.


The Seafarer's Kiss (The Seafarer's Kiss #1)The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julie Ember

Winter palette cover + takes place in an icy region


The Hazel Wood (The Hazel Wood, #1)The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

Something about the eerie tone of the book gives me walking in the forest during winter vibes.

The Loneliest Girl in the UniverseThe Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James

Space is cold and empty. Winter vibes.

Which books give you summer/winter vibes?

  1. I’ve heard good things about Contagion! If it’s not too personal to ask, do you have summer depression? I’m asking because I have winter depression and describe my feelings about it in much the same way you talk about summer.

    My TTT .

  2. I love all the blue-ness of your picks. I was so busy reading last month that I forgot all about T10T lol 😀
