The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe – C S Lewis
When Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy took their first steps into the world behind the magic wardrobe, little do they realise what adventures are about to unfold. This classic fantasy is perfect for all ages with magic and adventure behind each page!
Winter – Marissa Myers
The fourth instalment to the wonderful ‘Luna Chronicles’ which see’s Cinder and her team try to defeat Queen Levana and finally find their happily ever afters? I know this isn’t really a Christmassy read but I thought the name of the book linked in nicely!
Shiver – Maggie Stefvater
A spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love – the light and the dark, the warm and the cold – in a way you will never forget.
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares’ by David Leviathan and Rachel Cohn
Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have written a love story that will have you perusing bookstore shelves, looking and longing for a love (and a red notebook) of your own. Again another one I haven’t read but have heard good things about!
Miracle on Regent Street – Ali Harris
For the past two years, Evie Taylor has lived an invisible existence in London, but all that is about to change. Winter has brought a flurry of snow and unexpected possibilities. I really enjoyed this book, and yes it was cheesy as hell but that’s what made it so cute and christmassy!
Winter’s Tale – Mark Helprin
A beautiful love story between two unlikely characters; Peter Lake, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn, a young girl, who is dying. I highly recommend this extraordinary and romantic novel!
A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens
A classic and though its easy to watch the film adaptations, why not try picking up the book!
Well, thats my top winter reads and if you have any other suggestions please feel free to share some of your favourites!
