The Danish Trend Inspiring Coziness – Read All About It!

First off, what is hygge? It is a Danish word described as the “quality of coziness that makes a person feel content and comfortable.” And while this buzzword has become synonymous with happiness in coziness, there is no true translation into English. For me, hygge perfectly describes the feeling of curling up with a good book on a cold winter day. Here are some hygge inspiring books to settle down with in front of a warm fire with to create your own version of hygge. Don’t forget your warm beverage, a blanket, your favorite four-legged friend or whatever inspires you to feel warm and comfy while reading!

The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking, $11.49

The book that started the hygge trend in the U.S., this little gem breaks down the basics of hygge — comfort, togetherness, and well-being — and offers ways to bring that into your home during the long, cold winter months. (Plus, it defines cake as hygge, which is why chocolate cake is now a must for all my reading sessions for the rest of the winter.)
