A Book for Every Season

a-book-for-every-season-01

As a part of Bout of Books 5.0, Kristilyn at Reading in Winter hosts A Book for Every Season challenge:

Name the perfect book for each season of the year! The book can either have the name of the season in the title, or — and this is the preferred way! — the book can take place in that specific season.

Feel free to jazz it up however you like, by including pictures of the book to go with the name. The entry form will have space for you to submit your entry on the form, or via a link to your blog.
