Here are 5 great books to read curled up with a blanket during these cold winter months.
Modern day Ireland. Rain. Murder and mystery. More rain. Awesome.
This book is so long that winter comes and goes several times. It literally spans one man’s lifetime during the very tumultuous times in 12th century England. It’s over 1000 pages but don’t be intimidated – you have several months until spring.
A cold and drafty castle in England setting is a great start. Add in a power-hungry king and several women bidding for his affections, along with the state of the country in the 16th century and you have a perfect book to get cozy with.
This is also a long book but SO Good.
Okay so there’s some magic and you think fantasy may not be your bag. I am asking, no, begging you to trust me on this. I don’t like fantasy at all and these are my favorite books. It’s not all dragon-y or time warp-y. And there’s a castle and lots of snow and fireplaces! And one of the best written stories ever. If you haven’t read them yet, now is the time. If you have read them, it’s time to read them again. Seriously.
