If you’re like me and are sick of this snow and cold weather, then you find warmth in a good book. It’s the season where you cozy up in a blanket in bed and binge the pile of books you’ve had on your desk for weeks now. Because it is negative temps and snowing where I live, I seek warmth through books and have a few books on my tbr pile that I cannot wait to read.
Here are some of the books to read this winter!
“The Real Deal” by Lauren Blakely
I am a sucker for fake relationships. It’s one of my favorite tropes because you know they’re going to end up falling in love. It has the promise of angst, which I am totally here for. The summary for the book was enough for me to know I had to read it and run to my local library (yes, I still go to the library).
“Billy and Me” by Giovanna Fletcher
Someone had posted about this book on Twitter, so naturally, I was curious. Plus, the book cover is adorable and drew me in. Sometimes just the cover alone is enough to reel me in. This book centers around a famous guy falling for the everyday girl, which is another trope I adore. Who doesn’t wish for a famous, attractive actor to sweep them off their feet? I know I do; and if you say you don’t, you are a liar. I am totally excited to read this one.
“My Favorite Half-Night Stand” by Christina Lauren
I will read anything by Christina Lauren. I love their writing style — equal amounts of humor and romance. They are able to balance those two perfectly to keep a reader’s interest piqued. This book focuses on online dating, which is obviously the thing these days, so it’s quite relevant.
“The Royal Runaway” by Lindsay Emory
This book screams Hallmark movie, so duh, I’m going to read it. It’s about a princess who is so over being royal and wants to be a regular Joe. She encounters a man who is also a spy. Yep, I am totally hooked on that premise. I mean, that just screams conflict and angst. I am so here for it.
“Work in Progress” by Staci Hart
Staci Hart is the queen of making me laugh out loud while reading her books. Her characters are usually quirky and so relatable, too. I was hooked by the premise of this book: a girl marrying her favorite author? Yeah, sign me up.
I have a lot of reading to do on my downtime, but seeing as it’s too cold to leave the house on the weekends, I guess I have no choice but to read my weekends away. The TV shows I have to catch up on will have to wait.
