Rainy day reading

Crunching across frosted-tipped grass. Waking up to fluffy blankets of snow covering the ground, leaving the world clean and bright. That’s the picture-perfect vision of a UK winter. In reality, rather than skipping outside to build a snowman, I can bet that most of us have spent January wrapping up warm against the biting cold and even better, not leaving the house at all where possible. So, for those days where hibernating under a duvet feels more tempting than getting out to explore, I’ve collected a few of my favourite rainy day reading for when you’re in need of some travel inspiration.
