Holiday Reading

Hey, ya’ll! It’s finally November so I can feel slightly less embarrassed when I tell people the countdown to Christmas (48 days, if you’re wondering). It is officially “THE HOLIDAYS” — my absolute FAVORITE time of the year. But, I’m not going to lie, I’ve had the countdown going since September. It’s officially time to switch from mystery/thriller books to something a little softer, gearing up for Christmas.

So I’m curious, what’s on your TBR right now? Here’s mine!


  1. Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle — This one looks amazing and has been on my list since it came out, I just haven’t had time to get to it before now, but this will be the year!
  2. Christmas Bliss by Mary Kay Andrews —  Not going to lie – 78% bought this one for the cover. Isn’t it pretty? But the story also sounds adorable!
  3. Three Wishes by Barbara Delinsky — I bought this one two years ago when Zach and I were headed on our honeymoon, and still haven’t read it.
  4. Merry and Bright by Debbie Macomber — Have I said yet that this time of the year I’m really into cheesy, gooey books? I am. And this one is going to be good.

There are so many cute books out there designed for this time of the year that it’s hard to pick just a handful. And there is definitely never enough time to read more than a handful of books this time of the year. (I could add at least 10 books to this list, but I’d never get them read.)

But this list doesn’t help you much.

I would also like to share with you some of my favorite holiday books of all time:

  1. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows — I know it’s not exactly a “Christmas book,” but it is a great cozy up with a warm cup of cocoa kind of book for sure.
  2. Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn– A book. A dare. Will he take it? A cute back and forth romance for lovers of YA.
  3. Starry Night by Debbie Macomber — A super cute, quick read.
  4. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien — I know, it seems like a weird choice, but I have always correlated LOTR with Christmas.


Let’s talk! Have you read any of these books yet? Do you have any reading suggestions? What are you planning to read this holiday season? What is one book that you love to read this time of the year that isn’t really “holiday”? I love hearing from you!
