Bookending Autumn: Sweater Weather
Good evening bookworms!
I’m pretty sure I warned you about how extra I am going to be this month, so, consider yourselves prepared – the double posts will happen this month. (You’re welcome!)
This post is part of Bookending Autumn 2019, which is organized by Sam & Clo! The prompt for today, “Sweater Weather” is hosted by Danielle @ Poetry Books YA! If you want to do this prompt, please don’t forget to link back to Danielle’s post!
Prompt Explanation: It’s officially sweater weather, so break them out! Name some books that make you feel warm and cozy, like a nice sweater in the fall.
I love books that make me feel all warm and fuzzy, and some of my favourites include:
The Kiss Quotient – Helen Hoang
This book was the SWEETEST THING that I think I have ever read. Like I’m 98% certain it gave me gum disease. I LOVED it. Reading this book was like getting a giant Baymax hug while sipping hot chocolate and a cat sits on your feet (but in a lovely warm way, not like a “my feet are so numb and hot I now have pins and needles”…)
I also recommend The Bride Test, which is the follow up novel.
Back After the Break – Anita Notaro
I know I scream about the book an awful lot for a book that was published… in 2003… But, it seriously makes me cry with sadness, and then frustration, and then happiness, and then I’m really just a huge big emotional wreck for the next 3 months.
But, if you love romance or books set in Ireland, or better yet, romance books set in Ireland, where the heroine learns to be herself, and picks herself up after immense tragedy, then you NEED to read this book!!
Carry On – Rainbow Rowell
I mean, is there anything that Baz and Simon can’t do? I would really recommend this book for every season if I could – it’s one of my absolute favourites. Ever. In the world.
Part fan-fiction, part fantasy, 100% enemies to lovers, slowest burn ever, m/m romance – I can’t scream about this book enough. Oh, and I just read the sequel, and I haven’t stopped crying yet. Or screaming. I seriously hope there is a book three.
The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater
OK, so this is *kind of* cozy… As in, I think it’s a beautiful autumn read, and I would die for any and all of the characters. There’s a magical quest, but it’s set in Virginia. The boys go to a private high school, but they hang out at the local pizza joint. There’s magic and car racing and monsters and political parties. They wear suits and ties and forests and the trees speak Latin.
Also, I now want to reread this series again.
Great post, I love warm and cosy books and I find The Night Circus is the perfect one for this time of year ??
Oh I totally still need to read that one!!
I hope you enjoy it if you pick it up ??
The kiss quotient is STILL on my virtual wanna read xd
I have no idea why, as it IS a thriller after all, but In a dark dark wood is the only that really have a “cosy/wintery” feeling to it — I haven’t found any other that fits. Just.. man, that house made of glass !!
Ooof, I want to like thrillers, but they just are not for me!! They freak me out too much!!
And I can highly recommend The Kiss Quotient, AND The Bride Test!!
Carry On!!! I finished that the other day with 30 mins left to spare on my library loan ?? it was better than my first read! And now I just have to wait for Wayward Son.
Does The Little Prince count as a cosy read? It’s one of my favourites and just so cute.
I haven’t read The Little Prince, but from what I’ve heard of it, it should DEFINITELY count!!
Also, how good is Carry On?! ?
It’s such a good feel book!! And the animated version they made of it is ??????
*Adds it to my TBR*
*TBR threatens to crush me*
*Quietly shuffles out of room backwards eyeing my TBR*
*Makes sure that the TBR won’t hurt you with a stare*
*TBR backs down, puts a book or two onto the read-later-later pile*
