With winter approaching, the time to enjoy the cozy outdoors is no more. The second you step outside you’re greeted with wet snow and freezing temperatures. Struggling to find warmth, all you may want to do is cuddle up with a blanket and a good book. The question is: what to choose? You have a stack of unread books in the corner of your room and several recommendations from friends on a list in your phone. It’s too overwhelming. You want something now. Something new and unknown. Something to fall in love with.

Grab a hot cup of tea and your favorite scented candle. Curl up on the couch and turn on some instrumental music. It’s time to get ready to go on your blind date. Get ready to fall in love by answering the questions down below and we’ll recommend the perfect title for you.
