Banishing the winter blues

How about some feel good books and some laughs to banish the early evenings, the cold and the rain?

Boys Don't Knit by Tom Easton - engaging, humorous, even hilarious in parts. 

Let it Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle and Maureen Johnson - feel good romance in the snow. Perfect.

To All the Boys I've loved Before by Jenny Han - Lara Jean is a fun character and the story of her romance is fun and delightful

Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens - a murder mystery with style and fun. The next in the series is out too,

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke - what better than to get lost in books and dreams and fantasy?

No 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith - light hearted and warm set in the heat of Africa

Bridge to Terrabithia by Katherine Paterson - Ok, you might cry but its a great book to curl up with in front of a fire.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater - fantasy and romance; intriguing escapism 

The Diaries of Bluebell Gadsby by Natasha Farrant - there are sad bots to these books but most of all they leave you feeling warm and happy. Simply lovely.
