Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

There is no cold like a Muscovite winter (well, okay, maybe a Siberian winter). In Tolstoy's landmark novel on love and obsession, Russia's blisteringly cold weather may as well be another character in the book. It dominates Anna and Vronsky's whirlwind romance, as well as the more subdued and heartwarming love story between Kitty and Levin. On top of that, there's no better way to celebrate a freezing cold day than getting entrenched in some bleak Russian literature. By the time you're done reading this 900-pager, spring will have sprung!
