I am a huge sucker for Christmas cutesy novels so to satisfy my cravings for these kind of books, here are five Christmassy novels to read during this time of the month:
1) Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle
It's Christmas Eve and Gracetown has been buried by snow. But the weather is more than just the inconvenience. When one girl unexpectedly steps off a stranded train, she sets off a series of life-changing events,
Soon fourteen pumped-up cheerleaders will descend on the local Waffle House, Duke's DVD night will be rudely interrupted for a Twister mission, and a lovesick barista will determine the fate of a single teacup pig...
As the three stories collide, strangers cross pass and romance blossoms is with heart-warming consequences.
2) My True Love Gave To Me ( twelve winter romances) by Holly Black, Ally Carter, Matt de la Peña, Gale Forman, Jenny Han, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Myra McEntire, Stephanie Perkins, Rainbow Rowell, Laini Taylor, Kiersten White and edited by Stephanie Perkins
(Wow that was a mouthful)
Long, cold nights are for falling in love...
(the blue edges are so gorgeous...)
3) Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick
It wasn't so much Christmassy but it was definitely dark and romantic :)
Britt Pfeiffer has never been very adventurous, but that's about to change. Wanting to impress her ex-boyfriend, Britt convinces her best friend, Korbie, to take a hiking trip with her. But when a freak storm leaves the girls stranded, they seek shelter in a secluded cabin- where they find two handsome rescuers. Or so they think.
Britt realises that she and Korbie need to get off the mountain fast, so she begins a treacherous journey through the ice and snow. But is gorgeous, mysterious Mason and enemy-or an ally?
Tension mounts, and it's only a matter of time before things turn deadly…
4) A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Here's a good classic to read...
Ebeneezer Scrooge is a grouch. He is a greedy businessman who never has a kind word for anyone and is infamous for his lack of Christmas cheer. When the three ghosts of Christmas pay him a visit, Scrooge is given the opportunity to examine his conscience, inspiring him to change his ways and be transformed by the spirit of Christmas.
Shame I don't have a copy of this.
5) Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?
Hey guys, thanks so much for reading this post. I hope you all have a great Christmas with your family and friends. What are your favourite Christmas reads?
