Books Set in Winter or Snow #TopTenTuesday

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, they post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

This week's topic is a freebie. Since I featured Christmas-themed books in last week's Cozy/Wintery Reads, I'll pick some books set in winter or snow that are not Christmas-themed. I really enjoy books with isolated settings where people are trapped because of bad weather:

Chill Factor
by Sandra Brown
I just bought this one at a used book sale for $0.65. It's about a woman trapped in a remote cabin during a blizzard with a man who might be a serial killer.

The Snow Child
Eowyn Ivey
The setting is 1920s Alaska with elements of fantasy.

by Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston
(Heart of Dread, Book #1)
A YA dystopia set in New Vegas, now blanketed in ice.

The Shining
by Stephen King
(The Shining, Book #1)
Jack Torrance takes on the job as winter caretaker of a remote hotel, which is shut down until Spring. This is probably my favourite King book! Loved it!!

The Girl in the Ice
by Robert Bryndza
(Detective Erika Foster, Book #1)
This is a great police procedural about a woman whose body is found beneath the ice.

by Christopher Golden
Blizzards and ghosts, oh yeah!

by Michael Northrop
A group of kids get trapped by the blizzard in a school.

The Sittaford Mystery
by Agatha Christie
I recently read my first Christie mystery, and I just loved it! This murder mystery is set in a house where the inhabitants are snowbound.

Far From You
by Lisa Schroeder
A snowstorm traps a family together, and they are forced to deal with their issues. It's told in rhyming verse.

Into Thin Air
by Jon Krakauer
This is a non-fiction memoir about a journalist/mountain climber who nearly died on Mt. Everest.

So, what books set in winter or snow have you read? Please let me know in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog post if you are also participating in the meme!


  1. This is a great list. The last winter book I read was ICE by Lauren Carr.

  2. Yay! more books in one of my favorite settings. I read Snowblind in January this year and LOVED IT! Trapped looks decent but I'm afraid I'll want them to die. I'm bad that way.

  3. Snow Child and The Shining!!!!!!

    Sidenote: I love the word nook!

    Here is my TTT:

  4. Nice theme for this week's TTT FREEBIE!

    Here's a link to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week:

  5. I haven't read any of these! But I do love books with snowy covers and included them in my TTT a few weeks ago.
