I am an avid reader. In fact, I want to start my own book club, where all  I can do is spend my days reading, wrapped in a blanket and drinking hot tea (Am I 23 going on 60?).

Being busy with work and school, occupies my time and I unfortunately never have the time read all the books I want. That being said, I can’t help but celebrate when Winter break begins! I can finally escape my reality and indulge in the stories and words of a great pile of books.

While my “To Read” List continues getting longer, here’s some books you should definitely read this Winter:
