Bookish Item| Christmas in July TBR

So I know the summer just started, but if you’ve been following the blog, you’ll know I’m a big fan of Christmas. So I always love to do a little Christmas in July reading. The last couple of years, I’ve only watched some Hallmark movies, but this year I want to read some holiday books as well. Let’s take a look!

This July I want to read a few eARCs I received for holiday releases last year and a couple I already have my hands on that release in a couple of months.

All I Want for Christmas – Maggie Knox

All I Want for Christmas caught my eye when I saw that our main characters participated in a reality singing show. When they sing a duet and the chemistry is unavoidable, the network wants them to pretend to be in a relationship until the final show. I love a good fake dating story! Especially so when the characters start off not really liking each other.

Love, Holly – Emily Stone

Reading the synopsis of Love, Holly I get the feeling this is going to be a pretty emotional holiday read. I mean our main character’s family was torn apart after an accident and since then, Holly has taken part in a lonely-hearts holiday letter-writing club. This year the one she receives is a very emotional and she recognizes a place the person wrote about. She goes there to help the woman who wrote the letter. Love, Holly turns into a romance and I’m excited to see how it plays out.

A Winter Wish – Emily Stone

A Winter Wish is about our main character Lexie who just lost her father. She inherits half of her father’s holiday trips company and the other half goes to his young executive. Lexie’s father put in his will that they must work together for a year before deciding what to do with the company. Of course, we know they’ll fall in love, but we just don’t know how they’ll get there.

All I Want Is You – Falon Ballard

All I Want is You sounds like everything I want in a holiday read: our two main characters are rival authors, they used to be together, and they get snowed in at a remote inn a few days before Christmas. And last but not least, there’s only one bed. This is going to be a fun one!

Kiss Me at Christmas – Jenny Bayliss

I’ve enjoyed a few holiday reads written by Jenny Bayliss, so of course I had to request Jenny’s next book. Kiss Me at Christmas is about our main character Harriet who isn’t feeling the holiday spirit. She has a one night stand and takes the fall for a group of teenagers an ends up directing the town’s final Christmas performance. Of course, she must work with the man who she had a one night stand with. I have a feeling Kiss Me at Christmas will be a heartwarming read.


So these are the five books I definitely want to read for my little Christmas in July moment. Have you ever done a Christmas in July readathon or do you enjoy holiday themed books? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
