By: Hagar Ezzo

With winter practically here (although it doesn’t really feel like it *ehm, global warming, ehm*), it comes with a change in our daily routines. What with the new COVID strain, the ever increasing number of cases, and winter break, we’re practically stuck home – again. Nearly all of us know a person who has COVID right now, so we’re all required to stay mostly home and keep our social interactions outside safe. And what’s a better pastime than a good book? Here’re some novels you should read, and their accompanying drinks to warm you up. 

Click on the book titles for a book review and the drinks for a recipe!

1. Let It Snow + Hot Chocolate 

Your classic holiday romance, paired with a classic holiday drink. This book tells the tale of 3 different love stories and is written by 3 authors: John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson. 

2. Fahrenheit 451 + Hot Apple Cider 

Make sure you make yourself a nice, big mug when reading this. Telling the story of a future American society where books are illegal and burned, Fahrenheit 451 should definitely be on your book bucket list, especially if you’re a fan of dystopian novels.

3. Eleanor & Park + Caramel Cappuccino 

Two misfit teenagers fighting for their love, it’s only appropriate it’s paired with something as sweet as it. 

4. We Met In December + Eggnog 

She’s just moved to London. He lives right across the hall. You can put the rest together. 

5. The Snow Child + Gingerbread Latte 

If you love a good fiction read, this is for you! Two young kids build a child out of snow, and wake up to find that she has come to life. What awaits? A fairytale story requires a sweet drink with a little bite.

6. Snow Falling on Cedars + Sahlab 

This book tells the tale of a man wrongfully accused of a crime, and shows us the racism Japanese-Americans faced from their white neighbors post World War II. So really, sahlab seems rather appropriate for this heavy but intriguing read.

7. Holidays On Ice + Pumpkin Spice Latte 

A collection of essays and short holiday stories, Holidays On Ice is written by one of the funniest authors out there and Pumpkin Spice Lattes aren’t just a fall drink, you know?

8. The Child Finder + Coffee 

This one is for all you crime/investigation lovers. Naomi is a private investigator who spends the winter days searching for a girl who’s been missing for 3 years. You’ll need the coffee for this one, because you’re guaranteed to stay up reading it.

9. The Lovely Bones + Mocha

Through the point of view of Susie, a girl who was murdered beforehand, The Lovely Bones shows us how her family and town move on after her death. 

10. The Thursday Murder Club + Hot Milk + Cinnamon 

A group of old friends join together to discuss unsolved murders just for fun, until a real life murder takes place nearby. Will they find the killer? Only one way to find out!
