Winter reading list; books to curl up next to the fire with this Christmas as chosen by Jamie Klingler

If you are anything like us (and we like to think you are!) then few things are more enjoyable than grilling interesting women on their favourite books. Personal recommendations are the source of so many great discoveries when it comes to literature, and when we come across a voracious reader we immediately make note of their ultimate reading list. 

Which is why we are starting a new series on Stylist.co.uk, where we ask curious, book-loving women for the books that they wouldn't be without; their desert island reads. We hope you will stumble across a new discovery, fall backin love with an old favourite and ultimately we want this to be a go-to list for those on the hunt for a new read.

Up first? Jamie Klingler. The wonderful publishing manager here at Stylist, Jamie is also co-founder of the hugely popular London Book Club. She is one of the most voracious readers we know and, as expected, her list is a brilliant combination of contemporary and classics. We've already ordered two new books as a result and think you may do too. Take a look at Jamie's selections and let us know what you think of Jamie's choices in the comments below.
