About the Blog
I started Reading In Winter in 2009 after I had picked up one too many books, started reading, then realized I had already read the book. I figured blogging would be a good way for me to remember what I was reading and keep a sort of log of the books read as the years go by.
Unfortunately, I went through spurts of reading, blogging off and on, so I didn’t pay a lot of attention to the blog.
Until … October of 2011, when I decided to fully commit myself to reading and my blog. Now, I can’t imagine not blogging. I enjoy meeting new bloggers, chatting with authors, and finding new book recommendations.
Reading In Winter isn’t solely devoted to a certain genre of books, though I do lean heavily on the Young Adult genre.
The blog will probably remain pretty eclectic in its ways because I love books of all kinds and am very much a mood reader. As of January 2013, I am also blogging over at Winter Distractions, a blog dedicated to addictions, crafting and creating, photography, and books. Reviews posted on Winter Distractions will include some adult literary fiction, as well as classic literature, memoirs, true life stories, cookbooks, etc.
Aside from posting book reviews, here’s what you can find on Reading In Winter:
Monday — Review / Cover Love (last Monday of the month)
Tuesday — Open
Wednesday — Review
Thursday — Open
Saturday — Musical Saturday / Weekend Library Reading (bi-weekly)
Sunday — Sunday Reads (Previously Clock Rewinders)
I also participate in Cover Reveals and Blog Tours, host Guest Posts and Giveaways. I try to do plenty of readathons, and lately readalongs, and various challenges.

About the Buttons and Headers
All of the buttons you see on the blog for the various memes I participate in (you can view all of my creations on my Features page) have been created by me, as well as my blog header and blog button. If you would like me to create a button or header for you, feel free to ask! I’ll usually whip something up in exchange for a book or two.
