8 Books to Cuddle Up With

SHARE

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!

 

Darius the Great Is Okay by Adib Khorram

Darius the Great Is Not Okay

Where to Read: This is the perfect thing to read curled up at the library with a friend…because basically you’ll want someone nearby to hug.

 

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

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.

 

Once and For All by Sarah Dessen

Where to read: Get ready to take this with you on vacation, because this book has everything you need in a beach read – humor, romance, and an ending that is so much more than happily-ever-after. This book will have you believing in second chances.

 

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

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!

 

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

WeAreOkay

 

Where to Read: This beautiful tale of grief and hope is meant to be read in front of a roaring fire with a box of tissues.

The Season by Stephen Dyer & Jonah Lisa Dyer

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.

 

Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegmund-Broka

Always-Never-Yours-COVER

 

Where to Read: This is a classic, heart-warming cuddle book. Join Megan for a hysterical theatrical adventure as she stumbles into the lead role of Juliet in her school play…and may have even found herself a real-life Romeo. Find a cozy room and fill it with bookish candles and pillows and settle in for a nice long read.

I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman

Ihavelostmyway

 

Where to Read: 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 these three teens for an emotionally cathartic story of losing love, finding love, and dis­covering the person you are meant to be.
