One of my favorite things about the holidays are that we get a little bit of time off to relax. In my down time I love to read and I have three book recommendations for any of you that need some inspiration on what to read during you holiday break!
I find myself re-reading these books every couple of years or so. J.K Rowling is such an inspiration to me. Her artistry and her personal endurance are things that I strive for. I loved Harry Potter before I knew anything about her life but knowing a bit about her only makes me appreciate these books even more.
They are so easy to fall in love with and every time that I read the series I find myself catching onto more and more details. Rowling’s story is so intricate that even though it is a children’s book I think that you have to read it multiple times in order to get the full effect of it.
The Night Circus
This book is one of my all-time favorites. If you love vivid imagery, rich story lines, and bit of magic then you will adore this book as much as I do.
I don’t want to give too much away about the plot line, but this book tells the tale of a mysterious circus that arrives with no warning and the individual’s whose lives are changed by the circus. Erin Morgenstern is a master story teller and the world that she creates is so bright and animated that I just want to dive right into it.
Just One Day
Now this novel is magical, but not in the literal sense that the other two novels are. It is about a young woman who goes on a trip to Europe and meets a young man that changes her view on the world. Although she only spends one day with him, he changes her and she can’t seem to get him out of her head.
I love this book because it challenges the age old questions of whether love/lust at first sight is real. And the power that a small moment in time has to change your world completely. If you like romances you’ll probably like this one! It’s an easy, breezy read which is good for those of who just like to relax and let the story guide you.
Do you have any books lined up to read over the holidays? Or have you read any of these books?
