I had so much fun doing my Fall post that I decided I’d like to do one for Winter too!
It’s not even officially winter and I’ve been hit with a decent amount of snow 2 or 3 times already so I was ready to put up this post for sure!
My niece, Genevieve, playing in the snow for the first time. Last year she was too little to actually play!
In the winter time I have this inexplicable urge to read the classics. I just want to curl up with some tea, snow falling out my window and get lost in them. This winter I want to tackle a classic but I also want to get into the Christmas/wintery romance books! I’m VOWING to myself to read one (I’ve only read like Dash & Lily and Let It Snow) and I think it will help because I just haven’t been in the Christmas cheer mood. So my Winter TBR is a combination of some classics and some winter-y romances! Hopefully I’ll have some snow falling to set the mood if the past week or so is an indicator of what is to come in Winter!
I shared my Christmas music playlist here! This Winter playlist is not a Christmas playlist but rather the same as my Fall playlist in that I have so much music and like to make random playlists so I can stop replaying the same songs over and over again. So I make playlists based on the most random of things like these bookish ones. Or ones with songs from dudes with beards. Or with a food in the title. This one, like my Fall playlist, is comprised of songs I listen to with wintery words in the title — cold, December, snow, ice, etc. I’ve been listening to it a looot. Actually quite perfect for these cold days!
You can follow this playlist HERE!
These are my staples that I watch over and over again. I know I need to integrate new ones so I’d love some recommendations. I’ve seen A LOT of Christmas movies but not all get in the “every year” rotation but I would loooove to find a new one!
Love Actually –I could watch this at any point during the year. PLUS a young Andrew Lincoln!!! SAWOOOON.
The Family Stone — God, I love this movie! If you love watching family dynamic kind of stuff, DO IT.
Elf — All of the LOLS. I can quote all the lines. YEP. Pretty much the only Will Ferrell movie I’ve watched more than once!
A Christmas Story — Classic! You’ll shoot your eye out!
Home Alone — I will never stop loving this movie. KEVINNNNNN.
The Santa Clause – Can’t go wrong with this one!
How The Grinch Stole Christmas — THE ORIGINAL, YO! Not the Jim Carrey crap. This reminds me of my mom so much <333
The Nightmare Before Christmas — TIM BURTON! Enough said!
So, have you gotten snow already?? What other songs have a wintry word in the title that you think I’d like and can add to my playlist? Discover any new songs from it?? What movies are YOUR staples to watch around the holidays?! Give me a rec for one I’ve maybe never heard of (I’ve watched A LOT)! AND MOST IMPORTANTLY…what books should I read??!
