Once the temperatures start to drop, my need for comfort and cosiness sky rockets. You can find me at the fireside with a book and a steaming mug by my side.
So, this tag I spotted on We Write at Dawn is the perfect cosy tag for me right now. Grab a mug of your favourite drink and let’s talk some cute and cosy books.
Hot Chocolate: Marshmallows and chocolate and whipped cream, oh my! Recommend a book that’s sweet through and through.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han is by far the cosiest and sweetest book I’ve read in a long time. Lara Jean herself is such a lovely character to read, and I love the adorable love story between her and Peter Kavinsky. And in my opinion, the film adaptations are on a pretty even level to the books, which rarely happens.
Peppermint Mocha: The flavor of peppermint is strong and distinct. Recommend a book with a lot of strong emotions.
If you want a book to play with your emotions and feels, pick up a copy of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. A book narrated by Death during World War II in Germany is for sure going to bring some tears.
Apple Cider: It’s so good it can’t be good for you, but it’s made from apples—that means it’s healthy, right? Recommend a book full of characters with questionable morals.
I don’t think you can go more morally grey than Ayoola from Oyinkan Braithwaite’s My Sister the Serial Killer. A woman who murders her dates when things go south is definitely someone to have a word with.
Eggnog: It’s creamy and smooth, with a little spice, and some people even add alcohol to it. Recommend a book that’s mostly fun, with just a hint of danger.
As a contemporary romance reader, I don’t really have a book here. The stakes in romance are pretty low, and to be honest that’s good enough for me.
Gingerbread latte: A drink with a veritable explosion of spices. Recommend a book with a lot of action.
One of my fsvourite books as a teenager was Candy by Kevin Brooks. There is never a moment of peace in that book for poor Joe and Candy.
