Christmas Holiday Reads

I love reading Christmas/Winter/Holiday themed books this type of year.  Unfortunately I haven't been able to find very many that sound promising. I don't like books that are too sickening sweet and mushy.

I currently have 4 favorites:

1. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling- The winter scenes in this series are very memorable to me and there's no place I'd rather be then Hogwarts during Christmas time.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

2. Dash & Lily's Book of Dares (Rachel Cohn & David Levithan) This is THE PERFECT Christmas read and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a sweet, funny, easy read to get you in the holiday mood. I'm planning on re-reading this later this month.

3. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Dr.Seuss)- I mean this one is a no-brainer. Classic.

4. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (Barbara Robinson)- I remember this book from when I was a kid and I loved it. It's been a while since I've read it, but I just placed an order :)

After scouring the internets and Goodreads lists I've found some other possible Holiday reads to check out this month. I'm not sure how relevent some of these are but if they're on a list they have to be good.....right?

  1. I definitely want to read Let it Snow! Harry Potter, Little Women, and the Narnia books are all great holiday reads. I haven't read Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, but I might give it a try. (:
