The holiday season is the perfect time to curl up by the fire with a good book. It’s also a time of nostalgia, where I find myself returning to old favorites again and again. Here are a few of my favorite books to read around Christmas…what are some of yours?

icechildThe Ice Child by Evangeline Denmark

A brand new addition to my holiday reading list, this YA novelette has everything you could want in a winter story — magic, atmosphere, and a touching romance. Read my full review here.




littlewomenLittle Women by Louisa May Alcott

One of those childhood classics you keep reading the rest of your life. I love the 1994 film adaptation as well — the perfect movie to watch while baking Christmas cookies.




the-lord-of-the-rings-book-coverThe Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

I’m not sure if other people feel the urge to read these books again around the holidays, but I do — probably because my first date with my husband was to go see the first LOTR movie when it came out in December 2001. 🙂



achristmascarolA Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

The Christmas classic. I love this story more and more each time I read it.




Now grab a mug of eggnog or hot chocolate and get reading! Merry Christmas!
