2018 Winter Reading List – the weather is colder and it’s time to cozy up with a good book.  Here is my list of current favorite must-read titles and suggestions for your next Book Club!

Winter is officially upon us and here in the frozen tundra of West Michigan, there’s nothing better than staying inside with a good book by the fire.  I’ve wrapped up my Fall Reading List, and thought I would share my latest list of must-read books, all of which would make excellent choices for your next book club.   This list includes a little of everything and my usual favorites – historical fiction, suspense, family dramas, some personal development, and of course a cookbook!  For me, reading is like an escape.  I hope you find something here to get lost in too!

Please leave a comment with your own favorites.  I would love to hear your suggestions!
