Let’s face it, once the holidays are over getting back into the routine can feel a bit daunting. Here are some books and shows to spice up your days, and maybe your nights too. Then try one of these 35 Cozy Winter Dinner Ideas or a chilly weather cocktail from The Spruce to help get you through the season. Cheers!   

Beach Read  by Emily Henry
This rom-com is on my TBR list, and looking at all the snow outside, I could really use a beach read right about now. 

“A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.” (Barnes & Noble)
The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

Book 1 is a great introduction into the Fox & O’Hare series. The adventure begins when FBI agent Kate O’Hare and con artist Nicolas Fox are forced to team up to chase some of the hardest to catch criminals. 

“Problem is, teaming up to stop a corrupt investment banker who’s hiding on a private island in Indonesia is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill. Not to mention the skills of their ragtag team made up of flamboyant actors, wanted wheelmen, and Kat’s dad. High-speed chases, pirates, and Toblerone bars are all in a day’s work…if O’Hare and Fox don’t kill each other first.” (Barnes & Noble) 

The Night Agent (Netflix)
Just watching the trailer makes me want to rewatch it all over again. This thriller follows an FBI agent known for heroism in extreme situations who gets pulled into a pulse pounding thriller filled with intrigue and deception. Great characters and pacing. The second season is expected later this year (delayed due to last year’s strikes), but that gives you time to watch the first season and read the book the show is based on. 
Reacher  (Prime Video)
If it isn’t already obvious, the new season is bigger and bolder than the last. Someone is killing off members of the 110th special investigators unit. Jack Reacher teams up with remaining members of his unit to find the killers and dispense their own kind of justice. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on Amazon Prime Video. You can also find the books in series order on the Jack Reacher website here.
