3 Book Recommendations for Winter

Emily Gastelum, Reporter

While not everyone enjoys reading, I’ve gathered a list of three books you should invest some time in this winter season. Enjoy!

  1. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
    Ok, I realize this title might be old news to some people, but hear me out. While the Netflix Original movie is amazing, the book is ULTRA AMAZING. Han has a way with words that makes you wish you could live in the reality of this novel. The first book welcomes you to the messy yet adventurous life of Lara Jean Covey. The 3 part series just will capture your heart and makes you fall in deep love with the characters, especially the famous Peter Kavinsky. I highly recommend this book along with the next two in the series, P.S I Still Love You, and Always and Forever Lara Jean.
  2. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
    Looking for an intense book about the fight for power? Well, this novel right here is for you. The story follows triplet sisters who must kill each other to earn a crown and rule the land. The characters each have their own traits: Mirabella the elemental, Arsinoe the naturalist, and Katharine the poisoner. And, let me tell you, the fact that all of these girls are sisters does not make them think twice about killing each other. They are fully set on murdering a sister in cold blood if it means that crown will be theirs.
  3. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
    The last book is also by Blake, this book is a mixture of horror and romance, with a ghost to top it off. Our protagonist, Thesues Cassio Lowood has a fascinating hobby for a 17-year-old boy, he kills the dead. This pastime has been in his blood line for as long as he can remember. He, his herbal witch mother, and their spirit sensitive cat moves to Thunder Bay Ontario, to hunt down a legendary ghost referred to as Anna Dressed in Blood.  Over the story, we are sent on a rollercoaster of emotions, mainly because Kendare Blake is an amazing writer.
