5 books to add to your reading list this winter

There’s truly nothing better than curling up on the couch with a good book and a cosy blanket, especially when it’s getting a bit chilly outside.

5 books to add to your reading list this winter

Here are some great winter reading suggestions, from easy to brainy, that’ll have you staying up well past your bedtime and saying “just one more chapter…” 

Sex and Vanity by Kevin Kwan

If you loved the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy/movie then this should definitely be your next read! When Lucie Churchill first sets eyes on George Zao she can’t stand him, but slowly this all begins to change. Sex and Vanity by Kevin Kwan is the coming-of-age tale of a young woman caught between two cultures, and a comedy of manners set amongst the world’s summer playgrounds of privilege. It’s the first in a new trilogy that you’re sure to fall in love with! 

Liar by Lesley Pearce

If a thrilling murder mystery is more your speed, then how about Liar by Lesley Pearce? Amelia White dreams of being a reporter, but she’s never really come close to selling a story. When a murder victim is found around the corner from her home, she’s horrified to hear the lies and assumptions being spread about the young woman by the media. Determined to protect the victim from these smears, she convinces her paper’s editor to let her tell the true story. Now all she has to do is work out who the liar is…

HRT: Husband Replacement Therapy by Kathy Lette

If you’re looking for a book that’ll give you a good laugh then maybe HRT: Husband Replacement Therapy is the one for you! Ruby has always been the generous mediator among her friends, family and colleagues, which is why they have all turned up to celebrate her 50th birthday. But after a devastating cancer diagnosis and a few too many glasses of champers, Ruby’s speech doesn’t exactly go to plan. Instead of delivering the witty and warm words her guests are expecting, Ruby takes her moment in the spotlight to reveal what she really thinks of every one of them, then upends her life to spend every remaining minute exploring new pleasures. 

Girl ,Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo

Or, for something smart (Booker award-winning no less), how about Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo? From Newcastle to Cornwall, from the birth of the 20th century to the teens of the 21st, this book is teeming with energy, humour and heart. It’s a love song to black Britain told by 12 very different people, who are each looking for something – a shared past, an unexpected future, a place to call home, somewhere to fit in, a lover, a missed mother, a lost father, even just a touch of hope… a truly brilliant book and a firm team favourite at Penguin Random House NZ. 

The Kennedy Curse by James Patterson

Do you prefer a bit of non-fiction? The Kennedy Curse by James Patterson is a revealing and fascinating account of America’s most famous family. To this day, the Kennedys occupy a unique, contradictory place in the world’s imagination: at once familiar and unknowable; charmed and cursed. From their early days to more recent tragedies – assassinations, plane crashes, drug overdoses, sex scandals – it’s all in this gripping account from the world’s most trusted storyteller. They were taught to win at all costs… but the price is so high.
