Everyone loves to read in the winter time! It’s the perfect excuse to get cuddled up with a book and a blanket, probably a cup of tea and read a book in one sitting! Last year we compiled a list of the books that are best to read in the winter time, you can see that post HERE. This year i’ve taken it upon myself to create a new list of books that i think you should all read in the winter time. These are books that you can cuddle up with, some of them will make you happy and mushy in time for Christmas, and some of them are chilling for the colder nights. Either way, you’ll find something you love!
The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins
I read The Girl On The Train earlier on in 2016 and i found it the perfect kind of book to sit and read on a cold afternoon. The movie has recently been released so that means that there is another opportunity to sit inside on a cold day and curl up with a story! I really enjoyed this as it gives off a very creepy and spooky vibe to it. I’d recommend reading it in November or January.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus was on my list last year too, that’s because it’s an absolutely fantastic novel to be read in the winter! It has a very eerie feel to it, which makes it perfect for the colder months. I ended up reading this over Christmas a few years ago, so now it is completely a Christmas/winter book for me.
Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire by J.K. Rowling
One of my favourite books to re-read in the winter months is The Goblet Of Fire. Mainly this is because of the very wintery and satisfying Yule Ball scene! I think that scene is my favourite scene from any book ever, and to read it in winter is extra pleasing. If you’ve seen the movie (you probably have done, lets face it) you get the perfect imagery of the ball while you’re reading, truly magical.
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkin
Everyone knows The Hobbit. It’s the perfect, adventure read for winter time! The Hobbit means that you can have an adventure without leaving the warmth of your house. It has a lot of atmosphere written in to it, and it’s the kind of classic you want in the winter!
Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Last Halloween, i read this wonderful novel, and it very quickly became one of my favourite things to read in the winter time. The novel is so eerie and spooky that it’s great to read on late nights. The aesthetic of the book is very movie like, and it can be a great break up from reading novel after novel. I cannot recommend this enough for a winter read.
The Chronicles Of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
I first read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe as a part of our Christmas Read-Along last year, and i since have fallen in love with the stories in the winter time. They’re such easy reads of adventure and magic, mainly because they are children’s books. If there’s any time to read these snowy wonderland novels it’s in the winter time.
I’ll be coming to you again in a month with some Christmas recommendations, so don’t worry, i’ve got you covered for the festive period too. For now, these are the books i think you should get to this winter.
