Cosy: The British Art of Comfort | Laura Weir
19 posts | 11 read | 16 to read
The Danes have hygge. The Swedes have lagom. Now, Laura Weir, a beloved lifestyle journalist and editor-in-chief of London Evening Standards weekly ES magazine, introduces American readers to the Brits best-kept secretcozinessan indulgent, luxurious, yet unfussy way of creating comfort and joy. Cosy is the slackers guide to staying at home, an antidote to peak frazzle. With trademark Anglo cheekiness, Laura Weir perfectly captures the British essence of cosy. She celebrates socks, warms to the joys of toasty open fires, and extols the virtues of a quiet walk, ultimately enticing us all to create the British magic of cosy in our everyday lives. With more than 140 whimsical illustrations and interviews with British lifestyle experts, including Melissa Hemsley, Sophie Dahl, and Dolly Alderton, Cosy is a perfect reminder to slow down, have a cuppa, and settle in when life pushes you into overdrive.

I finished all of these over the 3-day weekend. I had started everything except Ghosts which I started and finished yesterday. All were picks and I loved each for a different reason. Ghosts was haunting & not a typical celebrity memoir. It really is exactly as the title describes with a sprinkling of what it's like to be an actor. Cosy and Anne were the warm blankets I needed this weekend & Follies was fun & transported me to ranch life in OK.

1. Not a recent read, but I have a great one for any time I bail on a book. "Time to Move On" by Tom Petty
2. See the pics! My Beauty and the Beast book sleeve, my new Baby Yoda Read bookmarks, and my 3D printed READ book business card holder. And of course so much more.
3. I've never thought about, but as long as the character is well written I'll read any age.

The perfect Sunday read. Took this out from my library and very quickly realized I needed to own this book. Luckily, it was a $1.99 on Kindle. Loving this so far!

Sooooo there were a few shining parts in this overall mess of a book. Between the poorly done art and the hodgepodge way it was put together (where was the editor) I finished it and felt... unsettled. So I looked up the reviews on Goodreads. The most liked review was one star and nailed why I also did not enjoy it... "I can only describe the overall experience of reading Cosy as 'annoying'. And 'irritating. And it lowered my IQ and I hate that."

Exactly what I needed. I love this short and sweet guide to the very British art of being "cosy". Cuddled up in my warm spot by the fireplace (electric heater ?), under my lovely knit blanket beside the Christmas tree was the perfect setting for this title. ? ☕️ ?
If you plan on reading this charming little book, Christmas time is the perfect time of year to do so. The last section is even about the holiday. ♥️

Any book that prompts napping as the ultimate form of self care is a winner for me 😂Tea and toast and foods that can be eaten from a bowl, bubble baths and fluffy socks, Laura Wier wants us to be cosy, not Instagram perfect. #NFN2020 #Book

Clwojick I love food in a bowl! I‘ve honestly had Buddha bowls for my last four meals 😆 13mo

This was a cute book. There‘s not much depth to it. It‘s simple and relaxing and cosy. I needed something lighthearted and warm to help me relax, and this was a good choice for that. I checked it out from my local library, and it was a quick read. Probably about a 3/5 star rating as far as enjoyment goes for me, but I‘ll give it a pick over a so-so rating, since it never claimed to have depth, and it did do cosy quite well.
