After weeks of enjoying festive holiday traditions, I find myself dreading the dreary days of winter ahead. To combat the winter blues every year, I pull out a few tried-and-true strategies, like enjoying fresh air and exercise everyday. Getting outside for my daily walk lifts my mood, and it provides the perfect audiobook-listening time.
To make winter more enjoyable, I’m also leaning into seasonal reading experiences. A book doesn’t necessarily have to be set in Alaska to feel like winter to me. A cold and snowy setting puts me in a hygge frame of mind, but so do atmospheric and moody books, introspective literary fiction, and epic fantasy and fairytales.
Today, I’m sharing a list of audiobooks that capture a variety of winter reading moods. I’ve included nearly every genre on this list, from narrative nonfiction to fantasy.
No matter the season, I’m always looking for a compelling story with an excellent narrator for the best possible listening experience. You’ll see that reflected on this list. I hope you find a few titles that capture your reading mood this winter.
