“Oh the weather outside is frightful…” Has it gotten chilly where you live too? I can’t believe it is now December, and Winter is upon us. That means cozy fires, warm drinks, and snuggling up with a good book! Of course, that means most of us will probably be reading holiday books, and books set during Winter time. So, what do you think is the best book you’ve read set in Winter?
~Let It Snow (Best Book Set in Winter)~
Synopsis: A soldier is summoned to the North Pole, days before the year changes, told to fix the great Clock for a celebration. He has no idea what to do.
A girl, hunted for the crime of being born, almost dies out on the ice. She is rescued by the last polar bear left alive.
A library waits for them both, a library built over a span of a hundred years, forgotten in the basement of an ice shack.
The world hasn’t known hunger or sickness in hundreds of years. It has also forgotten love and beauty.
The year is 2525.
Inspired by the short stories of Ray Bradbury, this futuristic novel is set in a world where Christmas -among other things- is obsolete and a Clock is what keeps the fragile balance of peace.
Written in three installments, this is the breathtaking and sensual story of how two unlikely people change the world, and each other, one book at a time.
This entire trilogy is absolutely breathtaking and atmospheric! Set in the North Pole during December, two very different people are fighting for their lives, and learning that they are also fighting for humanity and the human race. This story breathes Winter and emanates emotion and the importance of good will toward man.

For those who are new to Calendar Girls, it is a monthly blog event, created by Melanie at MNBernard Books, and Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile, that was inspired by the Neil Sedaka song Calendar Girl. Just like the song, each month has a specific theme, voted on by the participants, where we get to talk about a particular book we love or think fits the theme the best. The blog event was created to incite fun bookish discussions and to spread the blogger love by introducing us to new bloggers and/or books that we have not come across before.
