It’s week 2 of #FaeFriday and this week, we’re talking about the Winter Court. The Winter Court is known to be dark, chilling, and sensible. They are the faerie representation of winter, so this week’s prompt is: What book left you feeling the winter chill?
This prompt was co-created by @Leah_Books! Please link to her blog www.leahbooksandcooks.com!
Anytime I think about winter, I think about the Winternight Trilogy by Katherine Arden. This series is one of my favorite fantasy series. I honestly judge all the fantasies I read by this series.
The Winternight Trilogy is based on Russian folklore. The Winternight Trilogy has a significant focus on winter, and while reading, I always felt the chill. Katherine Arden is a master at description. I felt like I was walking the woods in winter alongside Vasilisa. This book also features the Winter King which goes perfectly with the winter court theme this week. I highly recommend you grab a blanket and pick this series up.

I haven’t read this series, but I will check it out. Thanks for the suggestion!
It is definitely one of my favorite series! You’re in for a treat!
Ooh great post, the books look absolutely beautiful!! I need to read these, I have heard so much about them! 😀 <3
They’re some of my all time favorite books! If you like audiobooks I HIGHLY recommend picking up the audios!
Ooh I do love audio! I’ll definitely have to try and get them at some point then! 😊💜
The audiobook is seriously amazing and it’s helps you learn the russian prunciations of the names!
Ahh that’s brilliant! I do love having the correct pronunciations, but not all paperbacks or hardbacks have a list or glossary that includes them! Will definitely try to get an audio copy at some point then! 😊 thanks for the rec and advice💜💜
Happy to help!
I really want to read the Winternight Trilogy this year! The fact that it’s your favorite makes me want to pick it up even more. I can imagine these books leaving you feeling all the winter chills.
My picks for this week are here: https://www.leafingthroughtime.com/fae-friday-the-winter-court/
If you enjoy Audiobooks I HIGHLY recommend the audio for this series! I seriously loved the Winternight Trilogy! It’s how I judge fantasies now!
I DESPERATELY need to read these books. I’ve heard so much about The Bear and the Nightingale but just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet.
If you enjoy audiobooks, I highly recommend the audiobook! The narrator brings the story to life!
I love it when a book puts me alongside the characters
Same! Its so much fun to feel like you’re a part of the book.
Thanks for sharing! I started The Bear and the Nightingale, but it was when I first moved so I couldn’t get into it. I was too stressed and just wanted cheesy romance. Perhaps I’ll revisit.
I definitely get that! This is definitely more fantasy than romance. Go in to it for the fantasy. There is a subplot of romance but it’s more fantasy.
That series for sure! One of my faves, and that of most of my co-workers. Others that scream winter chill (to me) are: Wicked Saints, and the middle reader Dead Voice by the same author.
I have yet to read Wicked Saints or Dead Voice. I own Dead Voice though. I bought it when I went to her signing last year.
I dont think this book is on my radar at all. Will add it on my tbr. 🙂
PS: envious of those signed books. 😁
It’s one of my all-time favorite series! I HIGHLY recommend it!
I really need to get my hands on this series! It’s been on my TBR list and I’ve been dying to read it.
It is such an amazing series!!!
These books sound so good! And look so pretty too 😍
I LOVE the covers!!
That is such a great picture!
I won’t be reading these, but they do look good
That is a shame because they’re fantastic.
This series keeps popping up randomly for me. I think it’s high time I sit down with it. And I love the Fae Friday themes!
I highly recommend it! It’s seriously one of my favorites that I have read!
i had heard about the bear and the nightingale before but have not read this series.. they look so beautiful..
I thoroughly enjoyed the series!
I’ve never read the series but it looks so good and I really do love her titles.
It’s definitely worth reading if you like fantasy with a hint of romance.
