TTT #166 – Cozy Reads for This Upcoming Winter

Cozy reads is a term that is often used nearing the Winter months. When I think of cozy I think of curling up on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate and a blanket and a good book. That book would have to be semi-short, quick to read, filled with humor, sprinkled with a bit of feels on top.

So with that in mind I made this list for today’s top ten tuesday prompt cozy reads (as always this meme is hosted over on That Artsy Reader Girl). I will be interested to read how other people interpret the cozy bit of this prompt.

Reading Challenge(65)

Deadly Sweet and Sugar Spells (Spellwork Syndicate 1 and 2) by Lola Dodge
The number one series that sprang to mind for this list was this one. These books are such quick and easy reads and are to me the ultimate feel good cozy read.

Little Shop of Found Things (The Little Shop of Found Things 1) by Paula Brackston
This is a book that I think might appeal to Outlander fans but is just easier in approach than the big Outlander books themselves.

Giant Days Volume 1 (Giant Days 1) by John Allison
This is just a fun read to curl up on the couch with and read in one sitting. Guaranteed that it will suck you in and that you want the next volumes right away.

Not Your Sidekick and Not Your Villain (Sidekick Squad 1) by C.B. Lee
These books are under and just 300 pages and as such are just incredibly fast reads. The setting of the world and the diverse characters are also incredibly addictive.

Enchanted Inc. by Shanna Swendson
This list just would not be complete without this series. These books are just great fantasy chicklit books and are great for a afternoon of reading. I can easily read two of these in a sitting. They are just that quick and fun.

Matilda by Roald Dahl
Very different but Matilda is just a great children’s books to curl up on the couch with. To share her love in books and for the feels this book is bound to give you.

Pindakaas en Sushi by Roderick Leeuwenhart
A Dutch book but that doesn’t make it any less of a cozy read. On the contrary, especially if you are a fan of manga, fantasy, cosplay and cons this is a great book to curl up on the couch with while the season of cons has slowed.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
This book could of course not be left of the list. It is great book to tear through.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Mysterious, a bit creepy and a very engaging read. Gaiman pulls you in and then doesn’t let you go.

Eric (Discworld) by Terry Pratchett
Well funny satircal this small Rincewind book certainly is. Though I wouldn’t suggest it as a starting point, if you are already familiar with Discworld and Rincewind this is a great quick read this Winter.

  1. Great list! I have a copy of Enchanted, Inc. that I still haven’t read so I need to get to that one, and Deadly Sweet sounds like great fun so it’s going straight on my TBR. 🙂

  2. Je doet me zin krijgen om Matilda nog eens te lezen. Maar ik ga me toch proberen inhouden vermits er hier nog ongelezen boeken liggen te wachten en ik later deze maand waarschijnlijk Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone al ga herlezen.
