Winter is the best time to be a reader because no one tries to force you to go outside and be “active,” leaving you with plenty of time to cuddle up with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book. Below are a few of our favorites to get all snuggly with, and the perfect place to read them!
Where to Read: This cute new take on Cyrano de Bergerac is the perfect thing to read curled up at the library with a friend…who’s texting the guy you like pretending to be you, when really he’s with his friend who is pretending to be him and- what an adorable mess!
Where to Read: Jandy Nelson’s lyrical exploration of love, art, and the ties that keep people together is a must read, especially when you’re curled up nice in tight in your bed so no one can see you weep.
Where to Read: This book is coziest when you’re snuggled in a blanket fort you built with friends. Hazel Grace would approve of the fairy lights you decided to hang up to light the inside, too!
Where to Read: This new tale of Christmas romance is perfect for the winter season, and reading it in front of a roaring fire is just what the doctor ordered after a day playing in snow. You’ll fall in love right along with Sierra and Caleb on this sweet Christmas tale of love and forgiveness.
Where to Read: Cuddle up with your pet and pick up The Season for a laugh and a break from the snow. This Texas-set retelling of Pride and Prejudice will leave you feeling all the warm feels this winter.
Where to Read: This is a classic cuddle book, both heart-warming and heart-wrenching, join Macy as she discovers that the things you least expect can be the things you need most. Find a cozy room and fill it with bookish candles and pillows and settle in for a nice long read.
Where to Read: There’s nothing sweeter than first love, or sadder than first heartbreak. Pick your favorite out of the ordinary reading nook (a window seat, a classroom desk, a bean bag at your best friend’s house) and join Henry and Grace as they navigate loss and love in their senior year.
