With the days getting colder and darker, everyone tends to get into a more cozy spirit, which makes this time of the year the perfect time to snuggle up in your bed and dive into a lovely book. Therefore today’s post is all about my recommendations on what to grab for a good winter read. I chose 4 completely different books in order to enable everybody of you to hopefully find at least one story that fits your taste. I incorporated book descriptions from amazon to make it easier and quicker for you to decide whether that story is something you could enjoy reading. Thank you to my wonderful friend Lola for taking those lovely pictures! 

If I stay by Gayle Forman

If I Stay 

„For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they're all about a future full of music and love, a future that's brimming with hope. But life can change in an instant. A cold February morning . . . a snowy road . . . and suddenly all of Mia's choices are gone. Except one. As alone as she'll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all.“ (Amazon, 2016) 

This book has been on my reading list for quite some time now and when we were bored waiting at San Francisco airport I finally got it. The story is obviously not always bright, happy and bubbly, but I must admit that I really do enjoy reading such books from time to time. You can just draw a lot of inspiration and wisdom from stories like that and especially this book impresses with a lovely detailed writing style (really similar to my all time favourite book “Before I Fall“). So if you are looking for a more serious and thoughtful book to read this winter season, I would definitely suggest this one.

„A sacred oath, a fallen angel, a forbidden love… This darkly romantic story features our heroine, Nora Grey, a seemingly normal teenage girl with her own shadowy connection to the Nephilim, and super-alluring bad boy, Patch, now her deskmate in biology class. Together they find themselves at the centre of a centuries-old feud between a fallen angel and a Nephilim…“ (Amazon, 2016)

I got this book upon the recommendation of one of my favourite Youtubers Kalyn Nicholson, so shoutout to her for introducing me to this fantastic book. I adore the mysterious, dark and autumnal vibes this books conveys a lot and the incredible writing style makes it really easy to empathise with the characters. I especially enjoyed the conversations between the two main characters Patch and Nora as the clever yet charming way in which Patch was teasing Nora made me smile quite some times (you will see what I mean when you read it yourself).

Off The Path 

“Reiseblogger Sebastian Canaves gibt in seinem Buch wichtige Tipps und RatschlĂ€ge fĂŒr alle, die eine Reise fernab der bekannten Pfade erleben wollen: Wie plant man einen abenteuerlichen Individualurlaub? Wie funktioniert Work & Travel? Was kostet eine Weltreise, und wie spart man am besten dafĂŒr? Was gehört in den Rucksack, was ist verzichtbar? Welche LĂ€nder lohnen ĂŒberhaupt noch? Mit Humor und zahlreichen persönlichen Erlebnissen gibt der Autor Einblick in seinen Erfahrungsschatz als (Welt-)Reisender und verrĂ€t in mehr als 100 Tipps, wie man seinen Reisetraum leben kann.“ (Ullsteinbuchverlag, 2016) 

This is a recommendation for all my German readers (or if you simply want to step up your German language game). My best friend gave this book for me before I set out on my journey to Scotland and I love it a lot as the author gives amazing travel tips in an rather entertaining and inspiring way of writing. Just a little warning: even just reading 2 pages of this book gives you serious wanderlust, so be prepared for immediately wanting to plan your next trip after reading this book!

„A trio of today's bestselling authors - John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle - brings all the magic of holidays to life in three hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and kisses that will steal your breath away.“ (Amazon, 2016) 

This is a new book I randomly stumbled across when wandering through one of my favourite stationery and book shops. The gorgeous cover as well as the amazing authors made me get this book and although I have not finished it yet, I already enjoy the story’s fun, happy and romantic atmosphere a lot
