It’s starting to get colder outside and its getting to that time of the year to get cosy with a book under a lot of blankets while it (hopefully) snows outside! We have created the perfect list of books for you to try out this winter!
The Night Circus By Erin Morgenstern
This novel is set mainly in the night time (if you hadn’t already guessed by the name,) the magical atmosphere that goes along with the darkness makes it feel like the perfect Christmas read!
Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
Billy and Me isn’t set at Christmas but gives off a very cosy feeling of being wrapped up in blankets. If you’re looking for a lighthearted, heart warming novel to get in to this winter then Billy and Me is definitely the novel for you! If you can’t get enough of Billy and Sophie’s adventures then you can move on to Christmas With Billy and Me, also by Giovanna Fletcher.
His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman
If you’re feeling a little more nostalgic this Winter then try out His Dark Materials! This is a magical trilogy of novels, so make sure you have plenty of time around the festive period to get stuck in!
Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle
This Christmassy YA story will guarantee to pull at your heart strings (obviously, its partly written by John Green.) The mix of three different authors perspectives makes this unique novel perfect for experimenting with on those long train journey’s home in the dark this Winter time!
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
Nothing screams winter and Christmas like some snow in a magical realm! Cuddling up with this childhood classic feels just like winter!
I Want To Marry George Clooney By Christmas by Tracy Bloom
If you want a break from all the heavy Christmas reading of classics, this funny contemporary novel is perfect to read with a hot chocolate!
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Although not the lightest of reads, The Book Thief has a very wintry feel. You can sit by the fire and get lost in this book for hours while the snow flutters outside.
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Nothing beats a classic book around Christmas time. Instead of watching it when it comes on your TV on the 24th of December (we all know it does) pick up the book instead!
Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling
The first Harry Potter novel feels the most Christmassy out of all seven. If you don’t have time to read the whole book, just skip to chapter twelve and read all about Harry and Ron’s Christmas together! We definitely won’t judge you for it!
The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter
To get children in to the chistmassy feel, try out a picture book that’s funny and entertaining. It’s a completely new take on a Christmas book! However if you don’t have any children to share this with, buy it for yourself anyway.

I absolutely love Let it Snow! For the past 3 years I’ve read it each winter season.
