The Hygge Holiday
The Hygge Holiday: The warmest, funniest, cosiest romantic comedy of 2017 | Rosie Blake
6 posts | 4 read | 7 to read
The perfect recipe for hygge this autumn: make a hot chocolate, draw the curtains, snuggle under a blanket and read your way to happiness! It's autumn in Yulethorpe and everyone is gloomy. It's cold, drizzly and the skies are permagrey. The last shop on the high street - an adorable little toy shop - has just shut its doors. Everything is going wrong for Yulethorpe this autumn. Until Clara Kristensen arrives. Clara is on holiday but she can see the potential in the pretty town, so she rolls up her sleeves and sets to work. Things are looking up until Joe comes to Yulethorpe to find out exactly what is going on with his mother's shop. Joe is Very Busy and Important in the City and very sure that Clara is up to no good. Surely no one would work this hard just for the fun of it? Can a man who answers emails at 3 a. m. learn to appreciate the slower, happier, hygge things in life - naps, candles, good friends and maybe even falling in love?

I liked some elements of this and found it amusing, but all of the characters and their interactions felt forced. It seems hard to believe someone my age doesn't have a phone or car and somehow got to a small village. Also the romance seemed a little forced. It was very cute though.

Avanders Heya lady — just checking in to make sure all #sffs packages have been sent ... can you confirm re the local package? Thanks! ♥️ 5mo

hermyknee This is the cutest thing! 10mo
JoScho @hermyknee I know! I couldn‘t resist! How is Wisconsin? Are you freezing? 10mo
hermyknee @JoScho it‘s cold, but so much fun! My aunt (well, Dad‘s cousin but she‘s basically my aunt) runs an inn in Cedarburg and that‘s where we‘re staying! It‘s soooo cute! She blocked out the whole thing for us ♥️ I‘m thinking of coming back up for Summerfest and ultimate relaxation after the end of the school year 😊 10mo
JoScho @hermyknee that sounds lovely! And no sleeping on a pull out couch in the middle of the living room! 😂 10mo

Too slow. Nothing's really happening.
And the romance in the end? Where did it come from?

#Christmas is the season for #Hygge This little book is like wrapping your brain with a blankie while sipping hot chocolate so thick a spoon can stand up in it! 😝
