It’s the first week of December, and as 2018 nears its close, today we get to look at the perfect seasonal topic.
That Artsy Reader Girl | Top Ten Tuesday December 4: Cozy/Wintry Reads
I’m all about the “cozy” reads. Unfortunately for me, I don’t feel as if I’ve read all that many probably because I read (really) slow, and also I have so many books on my shelf! Nonetheless, I do own several that look pretty on my shelf. Because of this, we’ll talk about some that I, as a bookworm, have an innate sense they’ll be cozy (aka the books I want to read) and a few I know are cozy reads (aka those I have read).
No matter their respective status on my TBR, all are books I think would be ideal seasonal reads. Whether its their cover art or the synopsis, something about each of them puts me in mind of the cozy season we’re about to enter. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy a good curled-up-in-a-blanket read this time of year?
Without further ado, let’s have a look at our Top Ten Tuesday December 4 list!!
Top Ten Tuesday December 4
(Disclosure: this post does contain affiliate links; if you buy anything through these links, I may receive a small percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you. Read the disclosure page for details.)
1: Christmas Heirloom Collection | We begin with a novella collection from Bethany House that I haven’t read. Chances are I’ll only read Becky Wade’s at this time since I’m not really in a historical-fiction-reading mood. If you like historical, three out of four of these novellas are historical. Amazon | Goodreads
2: Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa de La Cruz | Read this one last month, and while it’s fun, it isn’t a favorite. It’s still a cozy little story, and this reminds me, I do need to review this one! Amazon | Goodreads
4: Wrapped in Red by Meghan M. Gorecki | If you love Hallmark-esque romances, don’t miss Meghan’s meet-cute romantic-comedy novella. Amazon | Goodreads
5: Jenny B. Jones | Unfortunately, Jenny’s new seasonal novella isn’t available yet, but I’m eager to discover what it’s all about! I’d imagine all kinds of cute happens.
6: One Christmas in Winter by Bell Renshaw | Again, this is another novella sure to please Hallmark Channel fans. In fact, the plot of this one is all about a film crew in a small Montana town. Amazon | Goodreads
“We’re looking into each other’s eyes, and I think we’re both a little stunned by how great that kiss was.” ― Catherine Rider, Kiss Me in New York
8: Prince in Disguise by Stephanie Kate Strom | I’m pretty sure reading this one was on my to-do reading plan list for last season, but it didn’t happen. Still, I do want to read it, in part because it’s a royal romance. You all know, I adore those! Amazon | Goodreads
10: Baby, It’s Cold Outside by Susan May Warren | When this one was repackaged and re-released as an Indie novel, I picked it up on Amazon. Suffice to say, to end things, I do still need to read this story, which looks adorable, and is in fact, a 1940s era novel. Amazon | GoodreadsCome by and share all about your favorite 'cozy reads.'
