December weather is truly upon us, and if you’re anything like me, reading helps get you through the cold weather. Here are a few wintry books to help get you in the mood to read…

Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Told in the alternating voices of Dash and Lily, two sixteen-year-olds carry on a wintry scavenger hunt at Christmas-time in New York, neither knowing quite what–or who–they will find.
Trapped by Michael Northrop
Seven high school students are stranded at their New England high school during a week-long blizzard that shuts down the power and heat, freezes the pipes, and leaves them wondering if they will survive.
Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters by Nicole Standiford
Upon learning on Christmas Day that their rich and imperious grandmother may soon die and disown the family unless the one who offended her deeply will confess by New Year’s Day, each of the three Sullivan sisters sets down her offenses on paper.
The Drop by Jeff Ross
Alex wants to be a part of the elite Backcountry Patrol of snowboarders, but first he and three other hopefuls–Dave, Bryce, and Hope–must endure a series of tests that forces them to confront their own fears and the treacherous mountain terrain.
The Devouring by Simon Holt
The existence of Vours, supernatural creatures who feast on fear and attack on the eve of the winter solstice, becomes a terrifying reality for fifteen-year-old Reggie when she begins to suspect that her timid younger brother might be one of their victims.
The Greek who Stole Christmas by Anthony Horowitz
In this fast-paced, funny mystery, fourteen-year-old Nick and his brother, an ineffectual private detective, try to prevent the threatened murder of an international pop star in London at Christmas time.
