It's autumn in Yulethorpe and everyone is gloomy. It's cold, drizzly and the skies are permagrey. The last shop on the high street - an adorable little toy shop - has just shut its doors. Everything is going wrong for Yulethorpe this autumn. Until Clara Kristensen arrives.

Clara is on holiday but she can see the potential in the pretty town, so she rolls up her sleeves and

Reviewed by Stacey on www.whisperingstories.com

When Danish Clara arrived in the little village of Yulethorpe she never expected to be staying, nor running a toy shop, but that’s exactly what she ends up doing after the toy shop owner, Louise, ups and leaves for Spain and Clara offers to house/shop and animal sit for her.

The village has seen a decline in visitors and a lot of the shops are now empty, but Clara has a vision to make the toy shop wonderful again, and to bring in more customers and t

Why does this book have a high rating? I managed to haul myself half-way through before finally giving up, what a boring piece of literature.

Ако търсите наръчник за Хюга, тази книга не е за вас. Ако обаче търсите топъл, романтичен, щастлив роман, който да ви отведе далеч от грижите и да ви потопи в една по-различна обстановка, можете веднага да се изгубите измежду страниците на тази книга.
За да се насладите максимално на четивото, не трябва да сте прекалено критични. Просто се отправете на пътешествие из провинциална Англия с Клара, отдайте се на всеки аромат, на всеки красив пейзаж, забавете малко темпото, оставете телефона някъде д

Даваме ли си сметка , защо напоследък ни заливат точно такива книги - описващи уюта или както го наричат датчаните "хюга".
Поне за мен е ясно, че точно това липсва на повечето хора.
Забързани в напрегнатото ежедневие, забравихме за тези толкова ценни неща.
Заобиколени сме от напълно истерясал свят.
Дали обаче само книгите ще ни върнат усещането за уют и топлина ?
Съмнявам се.
Трябва всеки от нас да положи усилия и да има желание.
Когато човек се чувства щастлив, той със сигурност може да повдигне пла

What a warm hug of a book, this book is pure hygge, and I absolutely love it as a result.

Ok, so until even part way through I wasn't completely sure what Hygge was, I just knew it was something that seemed to appear all over twitter at this time of year for the past few years, but couldn't quite work it out.

Well if you are like me you will find this book not only a great story with plenty of humour, but it will also teach you all you need to know about Hygge, and a few Danish swear words too!

I love a Rosie Blake novel. This one felt quite different from her previous novel, but then I think that the subject matter made it feel just a lot cosier and it was still really really enjoyable. I actually started this book before going to sleep and then didn't put it down until I had finish it. I didn't realise that I was reading it until the wee hours of the morning because I was just so engrossed and absorbed in the story, costing up with the characters and enjoying a little bit of me time ...more

In the past I used to dread winter but thanks to this book it has changed the way I think. I am now going to embrace it with warm blankets, soft cushions, scented candles and hot chocolate. Of course, the story is just as heart-warming as you might imagine as it reaffirms what is important in life. If you read nothing else this winter, then make sure that this book is at the top of your list - I absolutely loved it. It will suck you in, wrap you up and leave you with a happy feeling of contentme ...more

Изпаднах в една поредица, в която четях само лежерни и разпускащи четива. Едно от тях беше "Хюга ваканция", която напълно съответсваща със заглавието си, беше една уютна книга, в която да се потопиш за ден. Известната за датчаните хюга се пренася в малкото английско градче Юлеторп благодарение на датчанката Луиза. Луиза бързо печели сърцето на част от жителите на града, а освен това привлича и нови клиенти на магазинчето за детски играчки, застрашено от фалит. Синът на собственичката обаче - лон ...more

I’m a big Rosie blake fan and together with the Hygge title, this book was very intriguing from the start.

I have two Hygge books at home and I have looked at them, but I have not read the whole book. I really loved this book, because it properly introduced me to this lifestyle. I really like the idea behind this book and Rosie Blake did a fabulous job putting this all into one story.

Clara is a very interesting characters and it was great to see what she was able to change. She is Danish (obvious

J'étais passée à côté de ce livre lors de sa première sortie, alors sa réédition m'a donné l'occasion de rectifier le tir, et comme je suis contente de l'avoir fait !

J'ai vraiment été conquise par ce roman de Rosie Blake, par ces pages imprégnées de douceur, de chaleur, de bienveillance et de réconfort, à l'image de l'art de vivre Hygge prôné par Clara, l'héroïne.

Clara ... Voilà une jeune femme pas banale, déracinée, discrète, gentille et désintéressée. C'est presque sur la pointe des pieds qu'e

Guys, you don't have to fear the upcoming winter if you have Rosie Blake's new novel at hand! Already the opening scene was abso - bloody - hilarious and it set the mood for the rest of the story. It was my first "hygge" book, to be honest and I won't tell you what I thought hygge is, it turned out to be something different to what I thought, but still I love the idea of hygge, especially now, when it's so quickly dark and uncomfortable and cold, and now I am a hygge specialist, and I also know

I was really looking forward to this book and to start with I was unsure but once I read on I got into it and it was brilliant so funny and festive and full of romance and laughter and learning about happiness. Well worth reading. Clara arrives in the village which is cold and gloomy and the last shop in the high street has shut its doors. She can see the potential and she asks the owner if she can run it while she goes to Spain as she wants to make a home of it. Jo arrives to find what is going ...more

This book is absolutely precious and adorable and sweet and will leave you feeling cozy with a big smile on your face. It was perfect for me to read in January in Alaska. It made me want to put on my coziest socks and wrap myself in my warmest blanket and light some candles! My only small gripe is that the book ended too abruptly… But other than that it was perfect!

Zase zrůdně patetickej konec! Nicméně jinak jsem nadšená, slyšela jsem pár negativních ohlasů, tak jsem se bála, ale bylo to prima čtení, milá letní oddechovka, která zahřeje u srdce :)

Das Buch hat mich mit seinem Titel und dem Cover sofort angesprochen und ich habe mir eine schöne Geschichte zum einkuscheln erhofft und genau das habe ich mit ein paar Abstrichen auch bekommen.

Der Einstieg ist in die Geschichte ist dann aber noch ein wenig lauter, denn mit großem Gepolter verkündet Louisa im Pub von Yulethorpe, dass sie ihren Laden schließen wird und nach Spanien geht. Clara bietet Louisa an sich um den Laden und ihre Tiere zu kümmern.

Behind the beautiful cover is an interesting story that I really liked. Louisa owns a children's store in a small English town. One day she decides she doesn't want to do this anymore and announces that she will close the store and travel. Clara is from Denmark. She finds herself in the right place at the right time, and somehow convinces Louisa to trust her with running the store and taking care of the old woman's parrot and cat. She is also tasked with informing Louise's son, Joe, of her depar ...more

Спокойствие, топлота, уют, истински емоции, хумор, лежерност...ъъъ... май се отплеснах, прекалих ли!?
След като прочетох първата глава от историята, веднага в съзнанието ми изплуваха книги от същия тип, които страшно много обожавам, а именно "Мосю Жан в преследване на щастието" и книгите на Жил Льогардиние.
Определено много обичам и много специални са този тип истории, след четене за битки, принцеси, асасини, любовни триъгълници, петоъгълници и т.н. имам нужда от нещо коренно различно, което ме ка

Роузи Блейк - "Хюга ваканция", изд. "Хермес" 2018, прев. Паулина Мичева

Има ей такива едни книги, дето знаят точно кога да дойдат. Понякога, след не особено весели преживявания, ти се иска да прочетеш нещо топло, уютно и малко.. провинциално, в най-добрия смисъл на думата. С полъх на английска провинция и на онези селца, в които всички се познават.
И тогава идва време за "Хюга ваканция".
Вероятно не е нужно да обяснявам какво е хюга, в последно време се появиха книги по този въпрос, но все пак - та

Clara is on the move again, and when she witnesses a slanging match in Yulethorpe pub it will be the turning point of her life.

As The Hygge Holiday features small children from the very beginning I ought not to like it as everyone who knows me also knows I don’t ‘do’ children and they would be right. I didn’t like it. I loved it!

Reading The Hygge Holiday was akin to meeting up with an old friend or slipping into one of Clara’s scented candle lit baths. The Hygge Holiday felt familiar and new at

“into the bar area and through the kitchen, letting herself out of the back door. She knew the shops would be shut at this time but she had a faint hope that she might stumble across some kind-hearted baker who would open his door just for her. She could almost taste the thick warm dough, sniffed the air for a telltale whiff of it. There didn’t appear to be a bakery in the village at all. Or a café. In fact, as she moved down the high street she was shocked to see so many ‘For Sale’ signs, shops with nothing in the windows but a few chairs or rolls of carpet. Other windows were boarded up, even the graffiti half-hearted, illegible squiggles in spray paint, dull colours. There was faded writing drawn into the dust on one window, a notice promising an end-of-stock clearance” 0 likes
