December’s theme – Cosy comforts

I love nothing more on a cold winter’s evening than snugglling up on my sofa with a steaming cup of hot chocolate in one hand and a good book in the other. It is even better when the book is my form of a cosy comfort – a seasonal chick-lit, a book filled with recipes (not necessarily a cookery book) or good epic fantasy to get my teeth into.

For me, a cosy comfort read is an event, something I look forward to at the end of the day – I have a cosy comfort checklist to make sure I am fully prepared for the event:

Cosy comfort checklist

Bethan's cosy comfort checklist

  1. Toddler in bed and sleeping peacefully
  2. Husband entertained watching football/rugby/any sport that is on TV
  3. Hot chocolate poured
  4. Sofa clear of all toys
  5. Cosy comfort book chosen and ready to go.

Let the reading begin.

To give you some ideas of what could be your comfy read, here are some of mine:

Milly Johnson – A Winter Flame – seasonal chick-lit at it’s best

Jenny Colgan – Christmas at the Cupcake Café – seasonal chick-lit and a book filled with recipes. A double hitter.

Laini Taylor – Days of Blood and Starlight – second part in a brilliant fantasy trilogy.
