Today’s question posed by our host at Should Be Reading is all about the weather. That is, it’s about books we love when it’s cold outside.
What’s your favorite “cozy” book — and, by that, I’m meaning “curl-up-on-a-cold-day comfort read“? Or, if you don’t have a particular book, what genre do you most feel like reading when the weather starts to turn colder?
That’s easy for me. I love curling up with cozy mysteries, or books that are nice and thick, like Maeve Binchy’s tales. In fact, I have a couple of Binchy books just waiting on my stacks!
I also enjoy Barbara Taylor Bradford’s books during inclement weather. Her pages are filled with lovely descriptions that whisk me away to England, or Scotland, or even New York. She writes family sagas, and with each generation, we find new locations, even as the family members always return home for the holidays. I have a couple of her books on my stacks, too.
Last night, we had some lightning, while yesterday we had rain. Unfortunately, it was muggy rain. Not yet the brisk, cool or cold kind. But those days are just around the bend.
So what about the rest of you? Are your cozy stories mysteries, or sagas, or perhaps a thriller or two? I hope you’ll stop by and share.
