It’s that time of year! If you’re in a place where you’re bound to be getting snow, I bet you might be looking for some cozy books to spend time with while stuck inside. Social media is a great way to find some guaranteed good reads — but why not get recommendations directly from the source? I’ve asked some Bookstagrammers what their favorite cozy reads are for a snowy day. If you have snow coming up on your forecast, keep reading to see what you might like!
I asked five Bookstagrammers: If you’re having a snowy day where you live, what’s a comfort read you automatically think of?
Here are their responses!
The Edens Series by Devney Perry
I’ve never had a book or series that was my comfort read on snow days but I think it would be The Edens Series by Devney Perry. To me, The Edens Series is a total escape. There is nothing better than to be snuggled up with a good romance book and The Edens Series is packed with romance, mystery, and the smallest hint of angst. In a very cliche way, it feels almost like home or at least like a warm cup of tea. It’s heartwarming and never fails to make me giggle and kick my legs.Rachel, @rachsreadingcorner
Mile High by Liz Tomforde
I already know this is my comfort read, and it turned into that because I suffer from anxiety and always had a hard time accepting my body/myself as I am. This book reminded me of that. The way Zanders talked to Stevie I took it as if he was talking to me, and it helped me leave so many of my insecurities behind. I also loved the way Zanders talked about his anxiety problem; there’s always so much stigma around mental health, and I loved that they talked about these topics.Kat, @katiely.reads
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Alice in Wonderland will forever be my favorite comfort read. Ever since I was little I have always been so drawn into the old Disney movie, and when I did read the story, I fell more in love with it. It’s one of those books I can escape to for a little while and go somewhere where not everything is how it’s supposed to be but that’s part of the journey; and in the end, things will be okay.Addy, @addythebookbat
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
I love Little Women‘s comforting characters (the March sisters, Marmee, and those around them) and beautiful writing. It has a timeless quality that has stuck with me. The hardships of each sister are profoundly real, and their character growth is beautiful. Each sister has such distinct qualities, and every time I read it I see them in new lights; Jo’s spirit, Meg’s yearning for beautiful things, Beth’s quiet peace, and Amy’s desire to be great. I love sitting down (in cozy socks or with a coffee!) to visit Orchard House and their scrapes small and large.Renée, @classicsandacuppa
Normal People by Sally Rooney
Normal People by Sally Rooney is by far my favorite comfort read. Rooney’s style of writing is so unique and raw that you feel everything the characters are going through. It’s a novel that perfectly describes the complexities of relationships and navigating the transition from your teens to your 20s.
Marianne and Connell’s relationship is far from perfect, but that’s what makes them so real. You see their struggles and lessons they learn from mistakes and know that you’re not alone in the world. I’d never read a book where the title so accurately describes the book that’s about to unfold, and I am so glad I got the chance to read this story.Amanda, @mandas.book.diary
