Winter is quickly approaching whether we like to admit it or not. We can feel it in the chill of the Oklahoma wind and in the crisp bite in the night air. Right before our very eyes we are witnessing the prelude to the colder months.
Winter is certainly not my favorite season, but there is one thing that makes the cold some what bearable and that is my books! There’s nothing more cozy that sitting in front of a blazing fire in the chair that your family or roommates jokingly call YOUR chair all bundled up in the biggest blanket you own with a book in one hand and coffee in the other. Feeling warmer, yet? I am just writing this!
To keep you warmer this winter season, here are a few books you’ll want to curl up with!
Every time I cracked the spin of this book, I felt like I was having coffee with a much older and wiser friend–you don’t want them to stop talking because they have so many great truths to speak. It’s one of those books that you sit down to read and you just want to hear more of what the author has to say. In this book, Elliot talks being still in a world that is anything but at rest. Keep a Quiet Heart is a great read for your mediation time!
Harry Potter is a classic! It’s a great go-to read and you can really start on any end of the spectrum. Looking for a more lighthearted book? Maybe read the first or second book. Want something a bit more intense? Read one of the later books. And if you haven’t read any of them, then you have a whole series to curl up with!
Another classic! Forget keeping warm with this gem…it’s guaranteed to melt your heart! You’ll fall in love with the mischievous redhead girl, Anne, and you won’t forget her spunk and sassiness.
With Christmas just a few weeks away, I had to throw this one in the mix! An Old-Fashioned Christmas is a collection of holiday romance stories that will bring out the sap in anyone! Some of the stories are beyond adorable and some are cheesier than those Hallmark movies that come on this time of year, but this book is guaranteed to fill you with the warm fuzzies.
This one is not only one of my favorite movies but also one of my favorite books! I love Skeeter. She’s kind of my spirit animal. With every chapter, you can’t help but rejoice with the successes of the main characters and feel heartbroken in their trials.
Another one that will fill you with the warm fuzzies! I recently reread Pride and Prejudice and was floored by how much of the humor I missed the first time I read this book when I was in high school. Maybe it’s from watching the movie (featuring Kiera Knightley, of course!), but there were times when I couldn’t help but LOL! The humor is just amazing and the love story is even better!
These are just a few of my favorites that I like to curl up with once it starts to get cold out. I hope they keep you warm this winter!
