Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! ‘Cosy’ is such an evocative word, and I could wax on for days about what it means to me. But for this week’s theme, I’m focusing on ‘cosy’ in the sense of winter reading: books I’d like to–or already have–read under the blankets, with a warm drink, and nothing but time…
1. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
It might have something to do with its exemplary Christmas content, but something about this book just makes it perfect cosy season reading!
2. The Princess Diaries (especially #4, Mia Goes Fourth) by Meg Cabot
I think again, it’s something do with book four being set in winter, but also: this whole series is peak nostalgic reading for me, which is hugely important for cosiness. (Side note: should I re-read this series soon? And as the answer is yes: should I do it before the new book comes out, or be peak nerd and try to read each one in the month it’s set? 🤔)
3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I read this book in one sitting, and I have such fond memories of how cosy it was, I see the whole thing through rose-tinted lenses, and even the title makes me smile. 🥰
4. Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
A cosy book that doesn’t involve winter?! Who am I?! (A Brit who read it while snuggling with my dog, curled up against the dregs of February winter. That’s who.)
5. In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren
There’s nothing cosier than a Christmas romcom. I said it and I meant it.
What does ‘cosy’ mean to you?
