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 genre. 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.

Aside from posting book reviews, here’s what you can find on Reading In Winter:


Monday — Review / Cover Love / Book Hoarder’s Selection

Tuesday — Making Music

Wednesday — Review

Thursday — Review / Open

Friday — Book Hoarder’s Selection / Discussion

Saturday — Musical Saturday / Weekend Library Reading (occasional bi-weekly)


I also 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.

About the Buttons and Headers

All of the buttons you see on the blog for the various memes I participate in (you can view all of my creations on my Features page) have been created by me, as well as my blog header and blog button. If you would like me to create a button or header for you, feel free to ask! I’ll usually whip something up in exchange for a book or two.
