Bout of Books Read-a-Thon: A Book for Every Season Challenge!

08.16.2012

By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

Thanks to Kristilyn at Reading in Winter for hosting this fun challenge! She’s asked participants to:

Name the perfect book for each season of the year! The book can either have the name of the season in the title, or — and this is the preferred way! — the book can take place in that specific season.

***

Oh! The seasons do have their effect on me. I’m a winter baby born in the cold month of January. And I tend to be a little more moody when the skies are grey. As much as I enjoy the sun, my favourite season is Autumn when I can enjoy the changing colours of the leaves.

Books, too, have their temperate season. Here are titles I’ve chosen:

***

 

Spring

***

Ernest Hemingway

***

The Torrents of Spring by Ernest Hemingway

***

Summer

***

Rosalind Miles

***

Guenevere, Queen of the Summer Country by Rosalind Miles

***

 

Winter

***

Anne Michaels

***

The Winter Vault by Anne Michaels

***

 

Fall

Gabriel Garcia-Marquez

***

The Autumn of the Patriarch by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez

And just for fun, here are some weather related titles on my TBR list!
