Let’s face it, there is nothing quiet as good as cozying up on your couch with a hot cuppa and a steamy romance novel… am I right? 😉 Especially with the wild weather we have been experiencing lately here in Melbourne, Australia. Why would any sane person choose to sit in a cold cafe packed full of strangers who think it’s ok to elbow everyone on their way to the counter when you can be at home, all snuggled up with a fantastic story is beyond me. See… you agree with me, don’t you? 😉 Well, if you happen to be one of the few who doesn’t have a good book in your bag, on your coffee table or on your kindle well I am here to help you. Have a look at my latest list below – maybe there is something that catches your eye? Got something to recommend – simply leave a comment below… oh, and stay warm…
