I live in the Midwest, and most of the time I appreciate it. We don’t have crazy hurricanes, earthquakes, or half a year of winter. Just tornadoes. And apparently this week–massive blizzards with freezing temperatures I haven’t seen before in my lifetime.

Here’s what I’m recommending to sweep you away on adventures even if you are snowed in…


Books The Hopeful Heroine recommends:

The Snow Queen by R.Hans Christian Andersen | review
Breadcrumbs by  Anne Ursu | review
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis | review
The Silver Bowl by Diane Stanley
Winterling by Sarah Prineas

Last year I spent a whole month on The Snow Queen for Project: Fairy Tale as it’s one of my favorite stories! If you LOVE the tale, here are a few of my retelling recommendations!

Book Talk: Have you been frozen inside this week? If so, what have you been reading?
