Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

If the maudlin, unhealthy, and drama-packed romance of Heathcliff and Cathy doesn't warm you up on a cold evening, nothing will. The Brontë sisters sure knew how to write a good heart-thumper, though Wuthering Heights is totally the evil twin of Jane Eyre (a novel that also features a healthy dose of winter). The use of pathetic fallacy—a literary device in which weather mirrors the interior condition of characters—ensure that this is one helluva dark and stormy read.
