BTT - Wintery Books

No, no … this isn’t the question you’re probably expecting, that asks about your winter reading habits.
What I want to know today is … what are the most “wintery” books you can think of? The ones that almost embody Winter?
(Personally, “A Winters Tale” by Mark Helprin pretty much nails this for me, and “Smilla’s Sense of Snow” was right up there…)

I couldn't think one with the word of 'winter' or 'snow'. But I remembered, my grown-up book that I had loved the most. It was 'The Christmas Book' by Enid Blyton. I read this book as a youngster and I could say this one could be linked with Winter.

What's yours?

Happy BTT!

Hadn't heard of that one - I've just discovered Enid Blyton, never read any of her books when I was a child. But that really is a wonderful cover. Have a Happy Christmas Day!

I used to read Enid Blyton as a child. I love the stories. She does tell alot of stories that are set in winter and Christmas.

For some reason, whenever I think of wintry books, I think of Doctor Zhivago' probably because I remember the movie and all the snow.
