It’s November already and that means that it’s almost time to start getting into the holiday mood. While of course here in the U.S. we have Thanksgiving coming up, but meanwhile the rest of the world is preparing for Christmas (and other holidays). While I do love Thanksgiving myself, there aren’t really any books I enjoy that are about this holiday. I do, however, have quite a few favorite Christmas books to share.
They range a bit, some are children’s books and the rest are generally young-adult and adult books. I’m trying to keep it at my top favorites because otherwise the list might get a little too long (as it does with any books). So here are ten Christmas-centered books that I’m recommending for y’all this year.
- The Mistletoe Promise – Richard Paul Evans
- The Mistletoe Inn – Richard Paul Evans
- The Mistletoe Secret – Richard Paul Evans
- The Librarian’s Night Before Christmas – David Davis(a twist on a classic!)
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas – Dr. Seuss
- Last Christmas – Kate Brian
- Skipping Christmas – John Grisham
- A Baxter Family Christmas – Karen Kingsbury
- The Bridge – Karen Kingsbury
- Twelve Days of Dash and Lily – David Levithan & Rachel Cohn
And for a bonus, there is also the Noel Collection by Richard Paul Evans (the newest one, Noel Street, just came out!). Though I haven’t read any of those yet, my mom has and they are on my list to read very soon!
As always, feel free to add some of your favorites in the comments. And hey, if there are any other holiday books that are not Christmas-centered, then give those a share too! Because I have no idea what else is out there and it would be interesting to see!
