Day 2 Festive Reads The Hygge Holiday by Rosie Blake

A lovely feel good read perfect to snuggle up with on a duvet day. I read this book through a recommendation and loved the main character Clara, she was a lovely warm character who was keen to help the sleepy Yulethorpe get back on the map.

A book full of warmth making it a lovely warm fuzzy read, it makes you wish for winter when you can light your candles and dig out your warm fluffy blankets. A perfect read for this time of year, I read it last year and absolutely loved it and would recommend adding it to your festive read pile.

Book Blurb

The perfect recipe for hygge: make a hot chocolate, draw the curtains, snuggle under a blanket and read your way to happiness!

It’s autumn in Yulethorpe and everyone is gloomy. It’s cold, drizzly and the skies are permagrey. The last shop on the high street – an adorable little toy shop – has just shut its doors. Everything is going wrong for Yulethorpe this autumn. Until Clara Kristensen arrives.

Clara is on holiday but she can see the potential in the pretty town, so she rolls up her sleeves and sets to work. Things are looking up until Joe comes to Yulethorpe to find out exactly what is going on with his mother’s shop. Joe is Very Busy and Important in the City and very sure that Clara is up to no good. Surely no one would work this hard just for the fun of it?

Can a man who answers emails at 3 a. m. learn to appreciate the slower, happier, hygge things in life – naps, candles, good friends and maybe even falling in love?

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and have recently started to listen to audio books as well to ensure I can maximise my time losing myself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us.
