About the Blog

I started Reading In Winter in 2009 after I had picked up one too many books, started reading, then realized I had already read the book. I figured blogging would be a good way for me to remember what I was reading and keep a sort of log of the books read as the years go by.

Unfortunately, I went through spurts of reading, blogging off and on, so I didn’t pay a lot of attention to the blog.

Until … October of 2011, when I decided to fully commit myself to reading and my blog. Now, I can’t imagine not blogging. I enjoy meeting new bloggers, chatting with authors, and finding new book recommendations.

Reading In Winter isn’t solely devoted to a certain genre of books, though I do lean heavily on the Young Adult, Historical romance, and contemporary fiction genres. The blog will probably remain pretty eclectic in its ways because I love books of all kinds and am very much a mood reader. Be prepared to find anything from YA to adult fiction to nonfiction to romance and erotica. I just love ALL books.

This blog has had its share of ups and downs as I lost my way, found my way, lost my way, and found it again after having children. While there are things I had lost touch with after becoming a mom, reading and blogging was something I always had to come back to! I took a very, very long hiatus from this blog at the beginning of 2015, started a new blog, then came back to this one, excited to talk about books again!


Currently not much of a schedule going on here, as I find my stride with blogging again. Maybe eventually I’ll start doing more posts other than reviews, but I’m keeping it simple for now. (See below)


I also love to participate in Cover Reveals and Blog Tours, host Guest Posts and Giveaways. I try to do plenty of read-a-thons, and lately read-alongs, and various challenges.
