I'm dying to read No Exit by Taylor Adams, soon to be released as an original movie on Hulu. The main character is Darby, a college student on her way home when a blizzard strands her at a rest stop in Colorado. Inside the rest stop are 4 strangers, one of whom she soon learns has a little girl in a cage in the back of their van. With no cell service or help on the way, what will she do and how will she save the little girl? Which stranger is the kidnapper and how far will they go to stop Darby?
You can buy a copy for yourself and read along with me in just a few clicks. Here's the link to the wintery book list I made. Lots of great reads here, perfect for snuggling up!
Winter is Coming Brrrrr! It's that time of year when all you want to do is get snuggly next to the fire, grab something hot to drink, and warm up under a blanket to enjoy a good book. These books are all set in cold, snowy locations, so bundle up!

A person who had never listened to nor read a tale or myth or parable or story, would remain ignorant of his own emotional and spiritual heights and depths, would not know quite fully what it is to be human.

Books hold most of the secrets of the world, most of the thoughts that men and women have had. And when you are reading a book, you and the author are alone together -- just the two of you.

The Road goes ever on, down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow if I can. -- from Roads Go Ever On, a poem by J.R.R. Tolkien
It's the spookiest time of year! Here are some stories that gave us the creeps! 😳😲🎃
Fall is a great time to get cozy with a book! We are reading:
In the Woods by Tana French (fantastic murder mystery/thriller)
The British Are Coming (first book in a trilogy about the history of the American Revolution) by Rick Atkinson. It is fascinating.
McTeague by Frank Norris (a novel that explores Social Darwinism, set in Gilded Age San Francisco) -- it reminds us of A Confederacy of Dunces.
We also just finished reading Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy ("Intense!") and the Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket ("Loved it!")
What have you been reading lately? Found any good fall reads?
