I’ve created a list at Quirk Books — a quest of sorts — of winter-themed YA and MG books you can dive into! Everything from scary tales at night, to sword fights in the ice, to adventures through the snow with friends, to winter romances.
Reading books will always be my favorite way to spend the day, but it’s especially true during the colder months. Endless hours of darkness to sit by a fire or a nice warm lamp, curled up in a comfy chair or wrapped in a blanket, a warm mug filled with a nice hot beverage in one hand and a book in the other.
With these warm thoughts in mind during the cold months, it’s time to look into some winter-themed Middle Grade and Young Adult books that will melt your heart and freeze your spine. The cold, dark months may be a melancholy time for some (I cannot express how often I re-read Jane Eyre in the winter), but it can also be a time of exciting adventures or bone-chilling ghost stories.

Just read your list at Quirk books…so fun! The last book I read, The Seige, was set in Leningrad in the winter…very cold and shivery. But not a YA. I can’t wait to try some of the books on your list. The only winter-themed MG/YA book I could think of that might fit your list is Laura Ingalls Wilder’s The Long Winter…it’s one I reread a lot, but usually in the summertime. 🙂 Great post!
Wilder has some great books in all versions — picture books and chapter books — for all seasons of the year. She’s a classic!
I’ll look into The Siege and add it to my to-reads list. Russian settings have always fascinated me, especially WWII era.
