Today I’m challenging all people tackling their ‘to read’ list through the #TackleTBR Readathon to come up with some books related to the four seasons.

Your challenge, if you choose to accept it is to find one book with each of the seasons in each title – not A Man for All Seasons, but one for Spring, one for Summer, one for Autumn, and one for Winter.

If you can’t find the titles including the season, you can include a book that is specifically set or related to the season.  Obviously Christmas stories relate to winter (or summer, if you’re in the southern hemisphere); The Longest Day is summer.

You can find them on your own shelf (more fun), or in your library, online, or already in your TBR list (even more fun).

THEN leave a comment with your four books below – and enter the Giveaway (which requires you to comment).  If your comment does not contain your 4 book titles, it has to have a very good excuse not to be disqualified!

You do not have to be signed up for #TackleTBR to participate.

Entries close at midnight (evening) Sunday 27th September (New York time.)

The Giveaway prize – one copy of one of my paperback books (see below), signed by me, anywhere in the world.

I’ll award a second prize of an ebook copy of one of my books to the person who comments with what I judge as having the best four seasons books, my decision is final.

The Princelings of the East series (six books)

      That’s ok, Paij. Great selection!

  • 23 September, 2015 at 3:24 pm

    My reading list for this read-a-thon comprised of a bunch of bride novellas, so I could just put An April Bride, A June Bride, An October Bride and A December Bride, but I think I’ll come up with some others. 🙂

    I’ve read a couple of these and really liked them–The Westward Winds series by Amanda Cabot:

    Summer of Promise
    Waiting for Spring
    With Autumn’s Return

    And as a bonus, to add the winter season:
    Christmas Roses, also by Amanda Cabot

    • 23 September, 2015 at 6:18 pm

      Well done on both selections, Katie!

  • 23 September, 2015 at 3:40 pm

    This was fun 🙂

    Never Ending Spring by Darrell Case
    Summer Secrets: A Novel by Jane Green
    Drums Of Autumn (Outlander, Book 4) by Diana Gabaldon
    Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand

    • 23 September, 2015 at 6:19 pm

      I’m going to get a whole load of new books to check out! Thanks for these great ideas, Amber.

  • 23 September, 2015 at 4:51 pm

    Spring: Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes

    Summer: The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

    Autumn: Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon

    Winter: Winter by Marissa Meyer

    • 23 September, 2015 at 6:20 pm

      Another great list! Thanks for taking part 🙂

  • 23 September, 2015 at 6:20 pm


    It wasn’t really hard to find the four books with the seasons in the titles – especially summer and winter – the only hard thing was which one to choose 😉
    – Cicada Spring by Christian Galacar
    – Summer of the Midnight Sun by Tracie Peterson
    – A Beautifull Fall by Chris Coppernoll
    – SEALs of Winter: A military romance superbundle (9 different authors)

    And in case I win I would prefer eBook to paper-book 🙂

    I like this challenge it was really fun.

    • 23 September, 2015 at 9:34 pm

      hi, Agnieszka. You managed to post your comment on a different place! I have copied it over here, though. Those are really good ideas.

  • 23 September, 2015 at 6:49 pm

    Hi and thank you a lot for this interesting challenge… it was hard to choose one for winter as i have many set then in my TBR pile but for the rest i had to look

    A witch in Winter by ruth Warburton
    Dragons of Spring dawning by Margaret Weis
    The summer i turned pretty by Jenny Han
    The dragon of Autumn Twilight by Margaret weis

    thank you a lot!

    • 23 September, 2015 at 9:34 pm

      You’re welcome, Miki 🙂

  • 23 September, 2015 at 8:21 pm

    Very inventive challenge!

    Summer on the Mountain by Naramore, Rosemarie (Read list)
    Winter Moon by Dean Koontz (TBR list)
    Whispers in Autumn (The Last Year, #1) by Leigh, Trisha (TBR list)
    Betrayals in Spring (The Last Year, #3) by Leigh, Trisha

    Tempting to just use Leigh’s entire series here lol

    • 23 September, 2015 at 9:35 pm

      I forgot that some authors had seasonal series… I’m now thinking of Helliconia Winter etc. 🙂

  • 23 September, 2015 at 11:01 pm

    Winter by Marissa Meyer
    The Summer I turned Pretty by Jenny Han
    Autumn and the City of Angels by Kirby Howell
    Clementine and the Spring Trip by Sara Pennypacker, Marla Frazee

    Hehe, the last one is a children’s book! It was the hardest for me ):

    • 24 September, 2015 at 10:26 am

      Well done, Jess!

  • 24 September, 2015 at 2:12 am

    Would the following work:

    Seasons of…Richie Tankersley Cusick-

    April Fools
    Summer of Secrets
    Trick or Treat
    Fatal Secrets (Two sisters walk through a snowy wood, collecting pinecones for Christmas decorations.)

    The last one was difficult because she doesn’t have a book with a winter title. I could sub in The Snowman by RL Stine, but I was trying for a collection from just one author. Or “Someone at the Door” – which also doesn’t have a winter title, but the cover has a snowman.

    • 24 September, 2015 at 10:27 am

      I love the creativity! Well done, Lenni 🙂

  • 24 September, 2015 at 6:58 am

    So fun! I shared mine on my daily update, but I’ll list them here too:
    A Timeless Romance Anthology: Spring Vacation Collection
    Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
    Autumn Masquerade (Timeless Regency Collection)
    Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer

    All are on my tbr. 🙂

    Looks like you’re reading is still going well. Thanks for hosting!

    • 24 September, 2015 at 10:29 am

      Thanks, Tressa! Nice to see so many people taking part. My reading has stalled due to a sick animal needing lots of care, but I’m on no 5, so maybe I’ll reach my goal…

  • 25 September, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    What fun. Here are mine: A December Bride by Denise Hunter; A May Bride by Meg Moseley; A July Bride by Beth Wiseman; An October Bride by Katie Ganshert (All from A Year of Weddings Novella Collection)
