What are good books to read in winter? They are the kind of stories that are especially good to read cuddled up in a blanket, holding a mug of cocoa or on a sofa next to a fire. They are heavier than summer reading, but still enjoyable. Here are our best recommendations for what to read on long, winter nights.

There’s nothing better than finding a few new good books to read. As someone who reads numerous books every year, I can tell you that the joy of being immersed in new worlds is one of the many joys of life. Personally, I prefer fiction books that visually paint new worlds with their prose, enveloping your mind with things unlike our own world. Whether it be post apocalyptic, high fantasy, futuristic, or an alternate universe that’s simply unlike our own, there are some cool universes and unique settings to be found in fiction books. What’s more, many books place you, the reader, in the role of a character with a life that is typically far unlike your own (which is part of the fun).
is already receiving a ton of praise from reviewers, with many saying that it contains one of the “most fascinating protagonists in recent memory.” It follows the story of Vera, a ravishing, troubled and highly intelligent seventeen-year-old who takes a trip to Europe with her estranged father, with the hope that the trip might help them to forget the past and create a future. Lucas, the father, has entered back into her life after seventeen years, but following a psychotic break at a high school party, Vera and Lucas take a trip to Lithuania, his grandmother’s homeland, for the summer. While there, Lucas discovers a secret about his grandmother and Vera searches for her own answers about her psychotic break and why her father initially left her many years ago. It’s a beautifully written story that tugs at the heartstrings, which is why I’ve included it on this list of good books to read this summer.
