I thought it would be fun to make a list of my favourite wintery books. I reread them all the time, almost always in bed under a duvet. I absolutely recommend reading all of these with an endless supply of hot cocoa.
These are the magical, chocolate Christmas family reads. They're nostalgic and wonderful and warm. The first Harry Potter book reminds me of my childhood, and makes me smile about the beginning of a long journey through the books. Chocolat always makes me want to speak French and live in a tiny town. It draws me to visit little chocolate shops and believe in the good in people.
These two are romantic and hopeful love stories. Beautiful Disaster is an intense 'bad boy falls for good girl and everything changes' story, filled with danger and cute friendship, and sexiness oooh! Shiver is gorgeous. A gorgeous start to a trilogy that won my heart over and over again. It's got poetry and sassy girls, fantasy, beautiful teenage truths, but mostly it's a sweet sweet love story.
I haven't reread this book as many times as I do the ones I just mentioned. I think, because it's grip is the suspense as the story progresses. But if I'm honest, it's because it's written so well that I lose myself in it and everything around me became part of the story. -The terrifying story! It's brilliant, and beautiful! But scary. I'm scared just remembering, but remembering how good it is makes me need to read it again! If you've seen the film, you'll remember the mist and the mystery that makes me associate it with winter. It's so good you won't want to put it down even though you're petrified.
Mmmm winter! What are your favourite winter reads? Xoxoxo
