20 fantastic books to cozy up and read this winter

Sharing is caring!

Every few months or so I like to share some of the books that I recommend. For this post of 20 books, you should get cozy and read this winter. I included some books that I’ve recently read, some of the books I’m excited to read next year and a few just awesome books that you should check out to make 2017 a great year.

I have included links to the books so that it will be easy for you to find them and.  Then I included the Goodreads rating. I keep track of my books on Goodreads and lots of people use the site so this gives you a good idea of how people feel about the book on average. Most books have lots of ratings and it’s out of 5 stars.
