As I mentioned last week, winter is a time of year when I often get a lot of reading done.
I love the outdoors in spring and autumn, but I don’t spend as much time there when I have snow, ice, and freezing temperatures to think about.
Thank goodness there are countless books out there for all of us to rely on for entertainment until it warms up again! (Or cools down again for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere).
Here are some of the upcoming titles I’m curious about and why I want to read them.
Escaping Mr. Rochester by L.L. McKinney
Publication Date: January 16
Why I Want to Read It: Jane Eyre is one of my favourite classics novels, but I always thought Jane should have chosen not to marry either of the men who proposed to her. I am intrigued by a retelling that shows her teaming up with the first Mrs. Rochester to make better lives for themselves.
The Warm Hands of Ghosts by Katherine Arden
Publication Date: February 13
Why I Want to Read It: While I normally shy away from fiction set during either World War, I love ghost stories and enjoyed the Small Spaces quartet enough to see what Ms. Arden is planning to do with Flanders field and life during the First World War.
