Wilkie Collins seems like a good author to read by the fireside. I ditto your recommendation of Susan Hill's book, too!

Barbara

Dickens! Then after Christmas I always feel like The Diary of a Nobody, The Moonstone and Sherlock Holmes.

Dark Puss

All books worth reading are good fireside reading in my opinion. However in the spirit of your suggestion about spooky books let me strongly recommend Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber. Puss in Boots will never seem quite the same again ...

The Darkest Cat

My first thought was detective fiction, too! Agatha Christie has several that have wintry settings. Little Women also strikes me as appropriate, for some reason.

Rachel

My favourite fireside read is Jane Eyre. Cosy, comforting and always satisfying.

Fran

I like to re read authors I enjoyed long ago such as Elizabeth Goudge and Rumer Godden.
I also think having a new Persephone book to indulge in is the perfect way to spend a cosy night in front of the fire.

Heather Bond

I'm with Barbara on Dickens and Mr. C on Sherlock Holmes. I never feel quite right reading either in spring or summer.

Jennifer

Agatha Christie's Miss Marple mysteries are perfect reading for fall evenings. Also, historical mysteries, long family sagas, Elizabeth Gaskell's novels.

Juxtabook

I agree about the Susan Hill you mention and with Dickens and Wilkie Collins. Georgette Heyer makes a great cosy read too.
