Books to Read by the Fire /Top 5 Wednesday

Standard

Do you love to snuggle to read books? If yes, then you are in for a treat this week with Top 5 Wednesday. We are visiting five books to read by the fire,  so go ahead to the Goodreads groups, you may find books you forgot about and books you love. It is a time for you to have a chat with other book lovers about those books.

Let us dive into it:

1. Romance Novel

This is  my review of the book:

My first read for 2014, I know, hold the knives! (Grins). It is an amazing story of how two people, guided by God, submitted to love, eradicating barriers of fear and stubbornness to conquer their doubts, in the end. It is a heartwarming read for cold weather!

 

2. Charles Dickens

I will be a bigger person and recommend this book even if I did not fancy it base on the merit that I felt  Scrooge was force to celebrate a holiday he did not fancy. However, if you love the atmosphere of Christmas, pick up this book near the fire, you will need the warmth.

3. Clean Romance

I recommend this very short novella simply for the setting. If you are craving a cold setting to compliment your cozy fire then read this very short tale.

4.A Gentle Feuding

Just cause :P. Oh come on you know, a highlander romance has to go in a cozy read pile. You need a fire for those windy, cold nights ;).

 

 

5. Jane Austen

My review:

It is more than the emotional journey of how Anne’s treatment by her family or that letter written by Captain W in the latter part of the novel. It is about how persons could use persuasion to manipulate others to do their bidding. It is about how comical (Mary especially) some character action are, adding more life to the plot. It is about man who has more vanity than pride and the length he would go to protect and enhance his vain nature. It is about the skill of the author in using scenery so It is more than the emotional journey of how Anne’s treatment by her family or that letter written by Captain W in the latter part of the novel.

It is about man who has more vanity than pride and the length he would go to protect and enhance his vain nature. It is about the skill of the author in using scenery so excellently to add that extra ‘umphh’ to the story.

It is my favourite Jane Austen baby.
