There's something so comforting about snuggling under a blanket with a book and getting lost in the world you have entered.
I'm always looking for new novels to read, it can be so hard finding decent literature, and I thought that no doubt you love to discover new books too.
Here are 3 books to read by the fire this winter.
1. All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot
James Herriot is one of my favourite authors. His ability to capture characters and tell stories is so engaging, I have a lot of trouble putting this book down. All Creatures Great and Small is the first in a series of novels he wrote about the people and animals he met when working as a newly qualified vet in the Yorkshire Dales in the 1930's. This book will literally make you laugh and cry, and is really a must read.
2. Rilla of Ingleside by L.M Montgomery
This book is of course where the inspiration for my Border Collie Rilla's name came from, although she wasn't exactly named after the character herself. It's the most grown up novel out of the Anne of Green Gables series and my favourite. The story is entwined with WWI, which lends itself perfectly to fireside reading, and is filled with both humour and more serious notes.
3. Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah
This is the true story of Adeline Yen Mah, growing up as the unwanted daughter in a wealthy Chinese family in the 1940's. The name 'Cinderella" was what caught my eye as a child, however it is both a heartwarming and heart wrenching tale, and has remained a life-long favourite. Whilst this book will certainly take you through a range of emotions and produce a few tears, you will love following the remarkable story of little Adeline, as she overcomes her hardships against all odds, and realises her dreams.
Now, I'd love to know if you have any favourite books to read by the fire?
