Top Ten Tuesday: The Books of Cold Weather and The Books of Fluff

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, in which bloggers and readers alike can scream together about books but in different topics each week!

‘Tis the season my friends!!!

I hope everyone’s December has been going well so far, and I hope that it continues to get better while we run up to Christmas (I’m trying to sprint to Christmas… but treadmill only goes so fast….)!

Today’s prompt is “Cozy/Wintry Reads!”

Aaaaand because I’m a big pile of mushy smush, I’m going to list 5 Wintry/Christmassy reads (or reads that I think would be good to read in Winter) and 5 fluffy books! Because December is the time for joyful emotions and allowing your inner child to come out full force when there is snow. You bet I’m gonna face-plant into the snow the second it starts falling on the ground.

The covers link back to Goodreads so you guys can check out these books too!

5 Wintry/Christmas Reads

The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is just Christmasy to me?? I think it was the movie. The movie feltย reaaaaallyย Christmassy. I might have to re-watch it. FOR THE CHRISTMAS!

The Night Circus is a book that has been on my TBR shelf for a veeeeeeery long time. I again don’t know if this book has a Christmassy nature or not, but I for some reason have associated this book with Christmas. Maybe it’s because circuses sometimes have a lot of lights. Colourful lights = Christmas to me apparently.

I still want to read it though. Even if it’s not in any way related to Christmas.

Wintersong has the word “Winter” in its title sooooooo. I’m making the assumption that Winter is somehow related to the story.

Plus, I’ve put this book on so many of my monthly TBR’s this year and still haven’t read it and so I’m fooling myself into thinking it is a Winter – set book. And so, I have to read it. Genius plan.

AH HA! The Wolves of Winter I know for sure has winter in it!! This is an apocalyptic book in which it it basically constantly winter. Snow everywhere. YAY! Death and the aftermath of nuclear destruction…. not yay…..

Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet isn’t actually wintry?? I don’t think?? But from the synopsis I got Nutcracker vibes and so Christmassy vibes. Barbie and the Nutcracker was my favourite movie as a kid and, to be honest, it still is now. I am most definitely gonna watch it before Christmas.

Also, this book follows a baker who can bake emotions INTO her confections and then the person who eats it gets that emotion…. IT’S BASICALLY A KIND WITCH WHO RUNS A BAKERY AND I NEED IT IN MY LIFE!!!

5 Fluffy Reads

Geekerella: I still have not recovered from the amount of fluff this book has. So many emotions. It’s happy and you’re sitting there smiling like a goof, but then you’re sobbing and your heart is in shreds. But then you’re smiling again because the fluff reaches maximum levels and:

Ok, so Love and Gelato is more of a Summer read. But it was such a fluffy read that I couldn’t leave it out of this list. 10/10 stuffed full of fluff and mystery! I highly recommend it, though would understand if you wanted to save it for next Summer/Spring.

25327818

Night Owls (or The Anatomical Shape of a Heart in the US and Canada) was a gush-worthy book too! Though I this book is a little more mature than most YA contemporaries (just to warn those of a younger age), but it’s still such a great read!!! Also!!! It’s about ART!!! ART BOOK!! YA ROMANCE WITH TWO ARTIST MAIN CHARACTERS!!! Big excite!!

Eliza and Her Monsters is a book that I hold dear to my heart for many reasons. But in regards to the fluff….. oh my gods it was so sweet. Such a soft romance book. 10/10 will SQUEEEEE again. Another book about art too! This list is going great! *she says sticking it together with not very sticky, sticky-tape*

10626594

While the romance in The Scorpio Races isn’t the main focus of the book, it has to be by far one of my favourites! Sean and Puck just kinda begrudgingly became friends and then something more while the rest of the town was all “YEAH! BRING ON THE DEATH FILLED HORSE RACES!!!”

It was super cute. The book itself was very atmospheric and I highly recommend it! This was my first Stiefvater book and it won’t be my last.

  1. I wouldn’t have thought of Narnia for winter reads, but that’s so good! Ohh, The Night Circus is on my to be read list. So is Eliza and Her Monsters! Okay- fluffy books. :)) Have you read either Once and For All or Foolish Hearts?

    1. I know right? I think I associate it with Winter and Christmas because of all the snow and the Santa appearance (in the movie-this was one of my favourite parts!!!!)
      Eliza and Her Monsters was so sweet!!! I highly recommend it!!
      No I haven’t read either of them! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ But if they are fluffy books I must find them and DEVOUR them!!! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Happy Reading!! โค

  2. Narnia is the PERFECT winter read. In fact, I’m not sure WHY I didn’t put it on my list last week. Also, “Geekerella” has been on my list for a while, but alas, I haven’t read it yet. Hopefully soon. Glad to see it made your cozy reads list. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks so much for the Finding Wonderland visit! I appreciate it, and apologize it took me so long to make a visit here.

    1. Narnia is great for Winter!! The movie is pretty good too! (For some reason I consider it a Christmas movie?? Maybe because Santa Clause appears??)
      Geekerella was so cute. So sweet. And so heartbreaking in some ways, but it was adorable!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope you enjoy it when you get round to it!!

      You have a beautiful blog!! Thank you for visiting!! โค

      Happy Reading!! โค

  3. Having read Night Circus, it’s not exactly wintry, although I think there is a wintry tent maybe (it’s been a few years since I read it). It’s definitely magical though, and Christmas is a magical time, so I’d say it still fits for the season. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also agree that December is a time to read all the fluff! Hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog.

    1. All the good comments about the Night Circus I keep reading is making me want to devour it right now…..
      DECEMBER IS THE MONTH OF FLUFF!!! I’m going to read so much fluff this month! (Or at least, I am PLANNING to read a lot of fluff)

      Thank You! I hope you have a wonderful week too! Thank You for stopping by my blog!

  4. Ooh we have snow! You can have some!!!! Haha although actually then it rained and now most of it is gone, sadly. I like a white December. Anyway, the books… I loved Wolves of Winter. And Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe definitely seems Christmasy to me- maybe it was the movie part w/ Father Christmas. I loved that.

    Love and Gelato is awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. YES! GIVE ME THE SNOW!!!
      Something about a white Christmas is really nice. Maybe it’s all the books and movies in which December is the time of snow? ๐Ÿ˜€
      I LOVED the part where Father Christmas turned up and was all, “Here’s a SWORD TO STAB WITH!” XD
      I agree! Love and Gelato was adorable and made my emotions mushy. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Happy Reading!! โค

  5. Swoon! I love your picks. The Night Circus is on my list too. It’s not inherently Christmassy but it does give off a good, read-in-the-winter, vibe to it! It’s the magic in it, I think. I hope you enjoy when you read it!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Thank You! It does!! I think it must be the magic. Though, for some reason I always associate Circuses with Winter??? *shrugs* I’m gonna read it in Winter anyway!
      I think I’m going to enjoy it. It seems like the kind of book that would grip me by the heart and never let me go XD

      Happy Reading!!

  6. Wintersong was another one of my Black Friday buys. I do have to read it. But who am I kidding, I’ve said that about 10 times in the last day. I’ve said that about Wolves of Winter too… we’ll see how many I can get done in 2019…

    1. I know right?? My Goodreads goal is screaming at me to read another 14 books before the year is out, but my heart says take it easy…. but Goodreads is louder XD

    1. I feel like it is just a Wintry book in nature?? Both the cover and the title are Wintry, plus I really want to read it – so the more lists I put it on = the higher the chances of me reading it are. (I hope)

  7. I really want to read Eliza and her Monsters. It looks like a really sweet book and sometimes that’s just exactly what you need. I love The Night Circus so much. The writing is so so so good. I really think it’s perfect for anytime of year, but I like fantasy books and winter, so I say go for it. Happy reading and great list!

    1. I LOVED Eliza and Her Monsters!!! I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it! It was so sweet, but just to warn you… the feels might make you cry ; _ ;
      I’m so glad!! I’ve heard mixed reviews for The Night Circus but I still really wanted to try it. I will try to read it before the end of the year!! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thank You! Happy Reading to you too! โค
