Drinking wine and reading a good book seem to go together like summer and ice cream. While there are endless possibilities when it comes to picking out the right book to read, narrowing it down to books that pair perfectly with your favorite wine or alcohol can be tough. Whether you're looking for a steamy romance novel to read while sipping on red wine or want to curl up with a good mystery while enjoying a cold beer, we've got you covered. Here are a few suggestions:
For horror fans, Stephen King's The Shining is a classic choice. The story of Jack Torrance, his family, and the eerie Overlook Hotel is perfect for reading by the light of a fire with a glass of red wine in hand.
If you're looking for something a little lighter, Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None is a perfect choice. The classic mystery novel, about ten strangers who are invited to an isolated island only to be picked off one by one, is ideal for reading with a glass of white wine or Champagne.
For those who prefer non-fiction, Eric Larson's The Devil in the White City is a fascinating read about the murders committed by Dr. H.H. Holmes during the 1893 World Series. This true crime book is perfect for reading with a stiff drink like whiskey or brandy.
And finally, for fans of historical fiction, Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth is an epic tale set in 12th-century England. This hefty novel is ideal for reading with a beer or ale.
So whatever your taste, there's sure to be a book that's perfect for reading with your favorite drink. Cheers!
