It’s getting cold outside, and I love to sit by the fireplace this time of year with a warm Christmas-y drink, a blanket, and a good book. Here are my top 4 picks for the best cozy winter reads.
Katherine Reay is just the best. Great storytelling and a main character that will make her way into your heart. As you read about Samantha’s struggles and triumphs, you can’t help but root for her to succeed and grow into the vibrant young woman you know she is capable of becoming. And it’s cute.
Also try Lizzy and Jane if you’ve already had the pleasure of reading this one. It’s completely different from and equally beautiful to DMK.
Elizabeth is another amazing storyteller. She writes with a voice that is engaging and pulls you right into the world her characters live in. Intelligent characters and a thrilling plot will have you riveted as you sit by the fire. You may even forget about your delightfully warm drink because you won’t be able to pull your eyes away from this book. Did I mention after reading this one, it may be difficult (if not impossible) to start reading another book for the next few days?
3. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The characters are complex and endlessly interesting. The plot is perfection. You will become immersed in the time and setting this novel so realistically portrays and completely embodies. I’ve read it more than once, and it’s one of the best.
Jody is one of my favorite authors, in case I haven’t told you 582 times already. I love all of her work, but this one holds strong as my favorite. I’ve said it before, but she is the best at creating tension in her plot and between her characters in a way that compels you to keep reading. If you are looking for a novel to sweep you away, look no further.
Now that I’ve shared my top choices, I’m curious…
