We wanted to keep up with the Christmas theme we got in our articles lately and share some of the Christmas reads that are on our wishlists! Curious to see which ones that are? Keep on reading!

The Afterlife of Holly Chase – Cynthia Hand

This one was also on our anticipated releases for November (I think!) And obviously also belongs on this one as it’s a Christmas Carol retelling! Perfect for Christmas and I can NOT wait to get my hands on this one. Also really the simplicity (but with beautiful details) of this cover

Nutcracker – E. T. A. Hoffmann

This is one classic I need to read, since I was a ballet girl myself when I was really small and innocent I feel like this is a must read. I have seen the Nutcracker movie and the ballet but now it’s time for the actual book!

 

A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens

Thas is such a classic Christmas story and I’m embarrassed to say I don’t own this book or have even read it! I don’t think this one needs much explaining, I feel like everyone knows this story. I would love to read it some time soon. And there are so many pretty editions! This is a Puffin Classic, but I also love the Penguin Classics!

The Woman in White – Wilkie Collins

For this one I did choose the Penguin Classic, I love those clothbound editions <3 I only heard about this classic quite recently. This is one of the original mysteries and since I’m a big mystery fan I feel like I should read this at some point. I want to try my hand at more classics next year and I feel like that works better when you have pretty editions 😉

Ex-mas – Kate Brian

This sounds like a sweet book with a happy ever after and a Christmas that will be saved. I love the fact that instead of a holiday party, they are going to save the North Pole.

Secret Santa – Sabrina James

Reading about this books made me smile. It seems like it has a good combination of funny moments and some holiday cheer. I love that there is the typical highschool geek and bad boy, haha. I wish I had known about this book sooner.

Snowed In – Rachel Hawthorne

I think being snowed in on a tiny island with sleigh rides would be the perfect way to spend winter. Add some guys to flirt with and the book is complete, haha. I think this will yet again be a really sweet and fluffy book. Perfect for this time of year.

The Twelve Dates of Christmas – Catherine Hapka

I think this is a typical version of you don’t know what you have until its gone. This characters plan seems to work to well and then she regrets it. I think this will offer many funny moments and warm moments near Christmas.

Clara Claus – Alexandra Lanc

I enjoy Jack Frost and the movies with him in it, so this story sounds like fun. Especially to read about him working with Santa’s granddaughter as a tour guide. I have never heard of anything like this with Jack Frost, so I’m really interested.

French Kissmas – Catherine Hapka

Spending Christmas in Paris definitely sounds romantic and I’ve never read a book around Christmas set there. The fact that she may have found love around Christmas makes it sound like a wonderful book to have while sitting next to the Christmas tree.

These are some of the Christmas stories we would love to have and read. Do any of them sound good to you?
