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?
The 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.
Little 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 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. 🙂
A 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!
