As of 2019:
While I will still be posting about books on Reading In Winter, this blog is going to expand a bit as I start to share more of my crochet and other yarn work.
I am still reading and my tastes have changed there, too, to reading more classics, contemporary fiction, literary fiction, non-fiction, and a few other genres.
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!
