The rain doesn’t seem to be leaving so it’s the perfect time for a cosy read
Usually I reserve books with themes of winter and witchcraft for the later seasons in the year but with the continuous rain we have been experiencing I just had to dive into this atmospheric novel.
Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw follows a teenage witch who is solving a mystery during a snowstorm.
If that synopsis doesn’t draw in your attention then I don’t know what will.
The vibe of this book very much fits the gloomy weather we have had recently.
Which is why I think this should be your last cosy read before you jump into summer romance fun.
The main character Nora finds a boy in the deep dark woods near where she lives.
After nursing him back to health a mystery emerges around his identity.
The book is full of romance, friendship and fun.
It’s lighthearted and suited for a younger audience as well as adults who enjoy fantasy novels.
I highly recommend making a hot drink, grabbing a blanket or two and settling down with this book whilst the weather is still dreary.
It transported me into a whimsical winter wonderland and made me glad that June is just around the corner for us.
I ended up giving this book three out of five stars.
It hit the spot for a cosy, comforting read but it didn’t do anything special for me.
I predicted the twists and turns well in advance and the mystery was obvious from the beginning.
Not to say it wasn’t enjoyable it was, it’s just not challenging.
