A Literary Christmas 2020
I’m joining in with Tarissa’s A Literary Christmas like I did a couple times a few years ago. I looked, and I think I did NO Christmas posts last year. What?! I’m hoping for many Christmas posts this year.
I have struggled to find Christmas books for adults in past challenges (I mean sans Hallmark ones), but I think I’ve found some resources to draw from for this year and next year anyway. I am trying some Hallmark authors I think. This is more a potential list than a set in stone TBR, so we shall see.
Hiddensee by Gregory Maguire
Christmas in London by Anita Hughes
The Man Who Invented Christmas by Les Standiford
A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote
Alaskan Holiday: A Novel by Debbie Macomber
It’s a Wonderful Christmas: The Best of the Holidays 1940-1965 by Susan Waggoner
Norman Rockwell’s Christmas book
Christmas at Fairacre by Miss Read
Christmas Treasury by Louisa May Alcott (I think a reread, I own this, and I think I read it years ago)
Christmas with Anne and Other Holiday Stories by L.M. Montgomery (reread, if I can buy it in time, our library seems to no longer have it)
Wooohoo!! So glad to have you join the Christmas reading challenge this year, Livia Rose! What a wonderful list you’ve put together. I see a few favorites of my own on there, which makes me supremely happy on the inside. 🙂
Thanks! I’m hoping to find some cozy favorites.
I need to find more Christmas books. I usually just try to read The Christmas Carol.
Yes, I felt like I knew how to find good Christmas movies, but that I couldn’t really find lots of good Christmas books, I was surprised I could come up with a list this size, and I hope at least several are good.
You mentioned A Man Who Invented Christmas by Les Standiford (I haven’t read it so I have no idea if it’s related) Have you watched the movie The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) Starring Dan Stevens as Charles Dickens?
I’m assuming they are related, I’ve not watched the movie. Maybe I will after I’ve read the book.
