It's cold somewhere.

During the baking heat of a Texas summer, sometimes I like to immerse myself in books that are set in cold places. Like The Cage by Audrey Schulman. This brief but compelling novel transports readers to the Canadian tundra. An expedition sets off from Churchill, Manitoba into the frozen north, vast and unpopulated, home of the polar bears they’ve come to document. One woman and three men set out, but not all of them will return.

The sun may be beating down outside, but you may feel like wrapping up in a nice warm blanket while you’re reading this one!
