A Good Book and Some Hot Chocolate - Blogmas Day 4


Who doesn't love a great book, hot chocolate, and sitting next to a warm, wood burning fire? The correct answer is crazy people! So grab a seat next to the fire; if you don't have one go to the lounge of your local inn (I happen to work at one so it's a pretty familiar place), whip up some delicious hot chocolate, and start reading the hours away.






My favourite hot chocolate isn't anything fancy, just simple hot chocolate mix and some steamed milk (usually two packets .... shh) and top with whip cream if you have it or some mini marshmallows....today I had neither but it is still delicious! mmmm chocolaty goodness...

Another option is to go to your local coffee shop (example: Tim Hortons or Coffee Culture) and get one on the go...they are also good but not as delicious as your own..probably haha (Btw this isn't a timmies hot chocolate...just to be clear)
Now onto the great book! These are just a few of my favourites. All but the top one are teen reads or young adult..no judgement as I just re-read the entire Vampire Academy series in two weeks this summer and enjoyed them just as much as the first time around 4 or so years ago. The top book, "The Secret Life of Bees" is probably one of my all time favourites...gotta love English class making you read actual good books. This also happened in grade 11 with "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini and "Left Neglected " by Lisa Genova. All were eye opening with lots to take away by morals of the story.  I haven't been reading a lot lately but the one for the winter months when I will be sitting with the hot chocolate by the fire is "The Girls" by Lori Lansens, a book about the life of two conjoined twins. 
If you have any special Hot Chocolate recipes or good books you recommend, please leave it in the comments below! I love trying new things and no one ever can have too many good books!

Merry Blogsmas!
