by Team Appkettle January 13, 2019

It’s Winter, so it’s cold and it’s dark and, I mean, who would want to leave the house anyway?

Here at Appkettle, the only thing we love - apart from curling with a lovely hot drink - is curling up with a lovely hot drink and a good book

So, here’s a money-saving, relaxing and downright enjoyable way to spend the day: use the Appkettle app to boil the perfect cup of tea and then, cheat on your phone with one of these delightful page-turners:

  1. The 5 people you meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

An astonishingly beautiful read about a crotchety old man who dies and meets 5 people who had a strong effect on his life - he just might not have known it at the time.

Heart-breakingly and heartfelt, this fantastic read will leave your soul cleansed.

  1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

If you like your novels a little more gripping, this modern classic still leaves readers stunned by its numerous twists and turns. Excellently written and with engaging characters developing before your very eyes, you cannot be blamed for not putting this one down.

  1. Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernières

Another touching story of young lovers, torn apart against the backdrop of World War II. The writer’s sumptuous writing style will leave you wondering why more books are not written like this.

Just don’t watch the film.


And, there you are. Three great reads to pour over while you set your smart kettle in motion and enjoy a day on the sofa.
