Cozy Reads Round-Up

Wednesday, January 6, 2021


Hello, My Lovelies!  On this special edition of What I'm Reading Wednesday, I thought I'd put together a round-up of books either set during winter or in cold climates.  These books will encourage you to cozy-up to the fire with a warm beverage because they will give you the chills!  Plus, I have read and highly recommend them all.  I hope you find one that strikes your fancy!

In case you're wondering...I'm currently reading the tenth book in the Mitford Series, and this one is set in Holly Springs, Mississippi during summer, so while I'm burning-up in the Mississippi Delta, y'all can chill in one of these cold climates.   ;P

Each book will link you to my full review if you're interested.  The only hints about the books you'll get are the cover and the setting.


Seattle and Antarctica

Small village in Northern Sweden


Boston, Moscow


Swiss Alps

Do any of them interest you?  Which one(s)?

What warm beverage will you be having with your book?

Until next time...

Ricki Jill


  1. Looks like some great reads for the long winter months. Happy Wednesday.

  2. I just love all your book suggestions! I would love to have hot chocolate with a book today but I'm trying to cut back. :)

  3. Bear Town looks interesting to me. I have always had good luck reading the books you recommend. xo Diana

  4. The Hygge Holiday is what interests me and I'll start it soon.
    Thank you for your lovely blog & book reviews. I appreciate it.

  5. I love your book reviews and see a few books listed that I have not read yet. Your blog looks great by the way.

  6. Many sound good to me, especially the Allende (I adore her writing) and Hygge Holiday sounds fun. I like the Mitford books but I need to catch up!

  7. I love Home to Holly Springs...I always tease my husband that is where we are moving. That is if we ever move, living in the same home for 30+ years. lol

    I love all the Mitford and Holly series. I really should see if there is a new one out.

  8. I have read the first two books in The Mitford series. I have a few more now to read.

  9. Great suggestions and lovely art! Happy January.......
