TTT #162 | Holiday Reads

We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is a Holiday freebie. I don’t read a lot of Holiday books but when I do, I love to read them around Christmas. So today I wanted to share a couple of the Holiday books I want to read! Let’s jump in. 

1.In a Holidaze – Christina Lauren

This is probably the want I want to read the most! It’s a Groundhog Day kind of story and I just love that so so much. Repeating the same day over and over hoping for a different outcome is so interesting to me. And I’ve read a Christina Lauren book before that I really enjoyed so I have high hopes.

2. A Boy Called Christmas – Matt Haig

This one sounds really cute! I have a ton of Matt Haig books on my list. He writes a lot of sci-fi I would love to read but this MG story is definitely on the list as well. Hopefully I will finally read some of his book in 2021.

3. The Christmasaurus – Tom Fletcher

Another cute MG story! And this one has a dragon!! Everyone seems to love this magical Christmas read and I would love to read it as well. It does have almost 400 pages but I’m expecting it to be a quick read nevertheless.

4. Hercule Poirot’s Christmas – Agatha Christie

I love mysteries and I have a ton of Agatha Christies at home from my mom and grandmother. This one isn’t among them I think but I would love to read a Christmas mystery. It’s something completely different than all the cute stories and that’s exactly what I need every now and then.

5. The Polar Express – Chris van Allsburg

I’ve never seen the movie or read the book and I think I have to change that at some point. This is a very beloved story and I would love to see what all the hype is about!

6. Little Women – Louisa May Alcott

I didn’t know this was a Christmas read to be honest! The movie that released last year looked really good and I desperately want to read it but first I have to read the book haha. I love this cover and it’s on my wishlist. Hopefully I’ll get my hands on it soon.

7. Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares – Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

This wasn’t really on my radar until the Netflix show. I love the look of the show but of course I would love to read the book first. Candyce enjoyed it and that is good enough for me ;). It’s also a pretty thin book, less than 300 pages so you know it’ll be quick.

8. Carols and Chaos – Cindy Anstey

Historical fiction has been totally back on my radar since I read My Lady Jane so I couldn’t not include a historical fiction Christmas read. I don’t know too much about the story but I do know it has a counterfeiting scheme and that sounds wonderful.

9. My True Love Gave to Me – Stephanie Perkins

Recently I’m enjoying anthologies more and more! Some of my favorite authors worked on this one so I would love to read their stories. I think I’ll love some of the stories and probably hate some of the others but isn’t that always the case with an anthology?

10. My New Crush Gave to Me – Shani Petroff

To be honest, this just sounds like a really fun and cute read! I think it’ll be a pretty fast one as well. And it’s another one Candyce enjoyed so that’s always good!

And these are 10 Holiday reads I would like to read! Have you read any of them? And which one do you have on your list to read? Let me know down below!

    1. Happy to hear that! I might try and pick up Hercule Poirot’s Christmas soon, it sounds wonderful.

    1. Haha I totally agree! I can’t wait to read that one <3

  1. I’m not really a holiday book kind of person, most Christmas books are romances and I’m just not a big fan of romance in books, I prefer movies for that.

    1. I totally agree. It’s just not something I usually gravitate towards. Last night I watched the Netflix adaptation of Dash & Lily and that was actually amazing!

    1. Thank you! I just started In a Holidaze and I’m really enjoying it <3

    1. I actually just started it and I’m really enjoying it so far. Exactly what I was hoping for!

    1. I just started In a Holidaze and so far it’s really entertaining!

    1. My Lady Jane is SO SO SO good!! I would highly recommend it. My Plain Jane is the Jane Eyre retelling. I personally enjoyed it a lot but I haven’t read Jane Eyre so I can’t say how it compares.

    1. I actually started reading it and I’m flying through it. So much fun!
