Top 5 Wednesday – Books to Read by the Fire

imgresOK, I already wrote on few occasions that I don’t do a seasonal reading, but since this topic came true, I guess I can choose some books I think that might fall into this cathegory. Quite many books actually…. I will try to limit my choices to the books I haven’t mentioned before, because, let’s face it – Harry Potter is an obvious one for me :D, especially that I do intend to read the illustrated edition during my Christmas break. It’s not a seasonal reading… It’s a big book that I don’t intend to carry with me, so the only time I can read it is when I’m home… and I’ll be home for Christmas ;). Also the Narnia series is one that I could easily add to this list, but I’ll skip this one too.

And a 30-something woman who just changed her job and moved to a small town to escape from people who chased careers and fought for their jobs.

I know it might not sound fascinating, but these are good books. I liked them and that says a lot, since I don’t really like normal, contemporary books.
