6 Reads to Help You Recover from Black Friday

SHARE

You know that day that comes right after the day we all say how thankful we are for the things we have? The one where everyone runs out and risks life and limb to get half-priced plasma screens and tupperware?

Yeah, that day. Black Friday. It’s one that requires a cup of hot cocoa and a stack of good books to recover from.

But luckily, we’ve got you covered.

 

1. Let It Snow

Let-It-Snow-COVER

 

Don’t act like you didn’t see this coming. Now that Thanksgiving is over, the holiday season has begun and Let It Snow is the perfect read to clear your mind of Black Friday craziness and replace it with holiday cheer!

 

2. Royals

Royals-COVER

 

The main character is probably even sassier than the lady who nearly ran you over with a shopping cart on Black Friday. Don’t mess with a girl who’s willing to rewrite the rulebook on royalty.

 

3. And We’re Off

And-We're-Off-COVER

 

This book will take you to wonderful, far-off places. Ones far away from crazed shoppers.

 

4. Once and for All

Once-and-for-All

 

If you hold this book tight and close your eyes you can almost pretend its summer already.

 

5. My Life Next Door

MyLifeNextDoor

 

The feel-good read you need while eating leftover mashed potatoes and turkey.

 

6. Anna and the French Kiss

Anna-and-the-French-Kiss-COVER

 

Take a literary vacation to Paris, you deserve it!
