Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly series created by Rukky at Eternity Books and hosted by Aria at Book Nook Bits. The full list of September topics can be found here.
This week’s topic is Reading Seasonally.
Do you read seasonally?
I do tend to read seasonal books throughout the year. In fact I just finished planning some seasonal book reviews for next month. I can’t resist spooky reads in September and October!
Do you like a beach read in summer, a spooky book in the autumn and holiday themed ones in winter?
Yes and no. It gets very, very hot where I live so I am rarely in the mood to read a book set in the summer during the actual summer. I’m more likely to read summer books during the spring or winter, although this year I did read a few during the summer.
Holiday themed books seem to be hit or miss for me. I tend to prefer to read them just before the holidays (so around this time of year) because by the time it’s actually December I’m rarely in the mood for them.
What’s your favorite season?
My favorite seasons are fall and winter. I love books set during times of unpredictable weather because I feel like it always adds a lot to the story. For example, a good snowstorm forcing characters into close proximity will always be one of my favorite storylines!
Do you have any favorite seasonal reads?
Quite a few books come to mind! I’ll list a few I’ve read recently below…
- Winter: Death at Whitewater Church (Inishowen Mystery #1) by Andrea Carter, A Breath After Drowning by Alice Blanchard
- Spring: Trace of Evil (Natalie Lockhart #1) by Alice Blanchard
- Summer: Aquamarine by Alice Hoffman, Blue Diary by Alice Hoffman, Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
- Fall: Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree, The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman, The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
This winter I have a few holiday books on my list including: Virgin River Christmas (Virgin River #4) by Robyn Carr, On the Way to Christmas by Sheila Roberts, and Alaskan Holiday by Debbie Macomber.

Sometimes I read seasonally. I do love reading more spooky books this time of year, but I read them year-round. And I don’t really do holiday themed books. I like to pick up longer fantasy novels during winter for some reason lol.

I’m hoping to do that this year, I plan to start the Wheel of Time series over the holiday break! 🙂
