Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Books to Read by the Fire – Blogmas 12/16

Top 5 Wednesday

Only one more Wednesday ’til Christmas guys. As always, T5W was created by Lainey and here is the full list of posters should you like to join. This week’s topics are books to read by the fire. And it has occurred to me that I’ve never actually done that – read by the fire. I need to hire me a fireplace and try it out. So I’m choosing books that I think would make good fire reads, not necessarily choosing from experience. πŸ˜› Anyone have a fireplace? Let me come over and read by it. I’ll make you food.

5. Harry Potter by JK Rowling

Because we just know. Harry Potter is a good anything read, but later in the series when the books get really fat, those I think would especially be good fire reads.

 

 

4. The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove

I haven’t read this yet, but when I glanced over at my shelves, this one popped out, screaming ‘FIREPLACE, READ ME THERE’. And I feel like it would fit. The Glass Sentence is a book set in a world where each country is locked in its own time period. SomeΒ  are modern day, others are Renaissance, others still are in the stone age. This is all I know about the book and it’s all I want to know going into it. It’s going to be good whenever I get to it, I can feel it. πŸ˜€

3. The Hobbit the JRR Tolkien

Hey lucky me, I plan on reading this this winter anyways. So I just need a fireplace. Netflix has a fireplace video (which I shamelessly watch, hush) so maybe I’ll just use that for the sound and light a bunch of candles for the warmth. πŸ˜›

 

 

2. The Christmas List by Richard Paul Evans

Guys, I’m a sucker for a good Christmas novel. This one I actually read and I know it would be lovely to reread in front of a fire. If you want a simple, heart-warming Christmas novel, this would be it.

 

1. Santa and Pete by Christopher Paul Moore

Aside from A Christmas Carol, which I’ve mentioned to death in the past few posts, I think this is my favorite Christmas novels. My mom read it to me when I was ten or so I think, and since then I’ve reread it two or three times, once every few years. It’s due for a reread but I don’t think I’ll get to it this year. Next year!


And that’s it! As I live in PA, winter hasn’t exactly hit yet (damn humans and their global warming) so when we get blasted in February, I’m going to need fireplace reads to read! So if you have any suggestions, please do let me know! Thank you!

Happy reading!
