Now that the days are getting colder and shorter, going out is becoming less and less appealing. Instead of risking getting frozen, why not stay inside in the warmth with a good book and a hot drink? For me, long winter evenings mean fantasy books (okay, every evening means fantasy books, but especially in Winter), so here are ten that can recreate that wintry feeling for you, without actually having to go outside. Perfect, no? The Crown's Game, by Evelyn Skye This enchanting fantasy is set in 19th Century Imperial Russia, so you are guaranteed some wintry feelings. It's a captivating tale of two young magicians fighting for the role of Imperial Enchanter to the Tsar in a magical tournament. I finished it in just over a week and half, so it is definitely a good one to curl up with and while away the winter nights. Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo Set in Bardugo's Grishaverse (though you don't need to have read the preceding books to understand), it follows a group of teens as they attempt a dangerous heist from the most secure stronghold in their kingdom. This is a fun, action packed read to pass away the winter gloom. A Shiver of Snow and Sky, by Lisa Lueddecke This new fantasy release is set on the frozen island of Skane, where a young girl has to prevent a massive onslaught of death after the sky turns red. The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern Curl up with a glass of hot apple cider (a beverage which features in the book), and experience the magic of Le Cirque De Reves as young magicians Celia and Marco compete in a magical competition with the circus as their canvas.
