Booking Through Thursday: Winter Reading

The northern hemisphere, at least, is socked in by winter right now… So, on a cold, wintry day, when you want nothing more than to curl up with a good book on the couch… what kind of reading do you want to do?

I want to lose myself in an epic fantasy, quite frankly! The Fellowship of the Ring looks so tempting whenever I see it out of the corner of my eye. There’s something so nice about being curled up in bed with an epic fantasy in your lap and forgetting the cold weather outside with hobbits and kings.

But this year, I’m trying to move away from my beloved fantasy and expand my literary horizons. So, this winter, I’m trying to lose myself in historical fiction, namely Dorothy Dunnett’s King Hereafter. It’s just as massive and epic as any good fantasy, I have to say, so it gives me the escapism I want from a book in winter.

In short–just give me an epic storyline and I am golden.

  1. I’m a fantasy writer (The Stumpwork Robe and The Last Stitch) who loves historic fiction . . . and my favourite books are by Dorothy Dunnett. I recommend without restraint that you read all The Lymond Saga and all The House of Niccolo. I doubt you will ever find anyone who writes hist.fict better.

    Do enjoy those long winter nights of reading . . .
