We asked, you answered!
We are all a little guilty of wanting to read more but always finding an excuse to do otherwise. As one of you pointed out, now is the time to "pour over all the beautiful coffee table books" we have for decoration. It seems we're all needing something to pass the time, especially if we are going to be stuck inside. So here are some of your recommendations (or keep scrolling to see what you recommended to us a few weeks ago for our first ever Colsie Book Club)!

But wait, there's even more goodness.
A few months ago on Instagram, we asked what your favourite reads are for feeling calm and got a lot of great responses (we love when you guys do that).

From fantasy to reality to I'm-not-crying-you're-crying love stories, you guys have great taste. Check out the list below to find a new read for staying at home.
