Snowed in? So Read Giveaway Hop

 

Has the winter cold visited you recently or are you living somewhere nice and warm right now?

Well I have some books that might leave you with chills or make you feel warm and toasty.
For some reason I vary between those two.  When it is cold out I turn to creepy suspense that can hopefully give me a shiver or something to warm me from the inside out that just leave me with warm fuzzies.  Polar opposites I know but there you have it.

For chills  (either literal or mentally) I recommend:
The Hallowed Ones (The Hallowed Ones, #1)The Voice of the NightOver the River  
For those looking to warm up check these out:
 Yellow CrocusLosing It (Losing It, #1)Once Upon a Prince (Royal Wedding, #1) 


Regardless read what you love!   

For this giveaway the winner gets to choose 1 CHILLING BOOK and one WARMING book of their choosing from the book depository.  Giveaway in INT

  2. Thanks for the giveaway! Books that keep me warm are by Jamie McGuire; her books are romantic and the relationship in the books are a whirlwind. I can't wait for her new book Beautiful Redemption.

  3. If you’re looking for contemporary romance with a little angst, conflict and snow, try Sarah Morgan’s A Night of No Return. I have a serious weakness for stories involving people trapped in snowstorms, and the snow in this novel comes with added drama.

  15. Perfect Chemistry series by Simone Elkeles because it has both romance and suspense and its just a great read for when your stuck at home with nothing else to do.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The superlative series or Endless Summer, both books written by Jennifer Echols because they are the type of sweet YA books that you need to read because when you finish them you end up with a goofy smile on your face :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I believe the book Sharp Objects would fit under the chilling category. This is by Gillian Flynn and was a page turner for me all the way through. It also has a suspenseful ending where you think you know how it's going to end and then...... (lol)

  18. Cujo by Stephen King was so scary to me as I had a yellow Pinto at the time this movie/book came out. Once you read it, you'll know what scared the crap out of me.

  21. I recommend Braineater Jones by Stephen Kozenieswki - noir mystery during prohibition era USA, plus paranormal stuff like zombies.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would recommend Anna and the French Kiss, it is a light read and it has romance. It is a great book that will make you smile.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think you should read The Devil Walks In Mattingly. It's a paranormal romance that will keep you turning the pages until the bitter end! Then you need to read In The Heart of the Dark Wood. Both are by Billy Coffey.

  33. Mariah's Gift by Lilly Linville, well other than this is her 1st book and this is a hard business to break into... its very heartwarming!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I recommend Gone by Stacy Claflin. A lot of suspense could not put down. Reading this book you might think you know what will happen but there are so many twists the author takes you on. This is book one in the series of three.

  35. Thank you for the international giveaway! Based on what you like I would recommend the scariest book I have ever read (enough to give your chills chills!) Pet Sematary by Stephen King https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10583.Pet_Sematary

  36. Well if you like scary chills Chris Carter has a good series. Its the Robert Hunter series. The first one is called The Crucifix Killer.

    ReplyDelete
  37. For giving you the chills, I would recommend Gillian Flynn's Dark Places. It is really creepy and there was no risk of me figuring it out before the end. I listened to it, so it was EXTRA chill-inducing.

    As for the warm-fuzzies, I like all of Stephanie Perkins (Anna and the French Kiss, etc.) and Rainbow Rowell's (Attachments, Fangirl) books, but if you want a straight romantic comedy (with some hot scenes), you might like Boomerang by Noelle August.

  38. I recently read Shutter by Courtney Almeda and it definitely gave me the chills. That book is super scary!
    And I recommend anything by Kristin Hannah to warm you up. Her writing's beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I loved "The Collector" by Nora Roberts. It has a woman seeing a supposed murder/suicide, that is nothing what it seems, the brother of the victim that does't believe his brother could do it and I'm stopping now since I almost gave spoilers :D The action takes place in New York City and Italy(for a bit) and it's fast paced and also has a believable romance... So it's a bit of both chilly and warm :)

  40. All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel by by Anthony Doerr because the characters and story are compelling and it is beautifully written.

  42. For warm fuzzies I recommend novels by Sophie Kinsella, especially Twenties Girl and Undomestic Goddess.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I recommend Damocles by S.G. Redling because it's a charmingly beautiful book about a relationship between a human astronaut and the alien whose planet she lands on. Trust me, it will give you the warm fuzzies!

  44. Sweet,Texas series by Candis Terry and O'Neil Brothers series by Sarah Morgan - both series are really wonderful,sweet,amazing love stories :)

  45. I don't know if you've read any books by Tana French, but her novels are mysteries that also explore family relations and political problems in Ireland. I've read Faithful Place, which is the third in her series, but you don't need to read the others to understand it at all. A boy is going to runaway with his childhood sweetheart, only she doesn't show up on the night they are supposed to leave. He leaves by himself, gets a decent job as a detective when he gets older, and eventually marries someone else and has a daughter. Years later, a body is discovered in his old neighborhood...

  52. I'm going to say either the Keeper's Chronicles (Summon the Keeper, The Second Summoning, Long Hot Summoning) or the Blood books (Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt), both series are by Tanya Huff. They are both great series and you really get into them.

  54. I enjoy thrillers that give me chills. The one I would recommend is Creep by Jennifer Hillier. I've read the sequel, Freak, too and they are both compelling and unpredictable.

    Thanks :)

  57. I recommend Daemon by Daniel Suarez. It's got a lot of suspense. I'm not sure if creepy is the right word to describe it, but it is unsettling in many ways. The audiobook version is also very well done.

  58. Wicked by Jennifer Armentrout. Because...IT'S JENNIFER ARMENTROUT!! And it's an amazing story, I think you'd enjoy it. But I hope you don't get snowed in :)
