Top 10 Tuesday, hosted over on That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly bookish list challenge. And this week’s prompt is a Christmas freebie. So, this is my Top 10 Favourite Books To Read Around Christmas.
A Christmas Carol is a classic. It’s basically the ultimate Christmas read, right?!
I love reading ghost stories this time of year, and Ghost Stories by Mark Gatiss is a great little spooky collection!
Probably my favourite ghost story collection is by Roald Dahl. The Book of Ghost Stories is kind of a classic Christmas read for me at this point! That being said, I’m hesitant to recommend it given what’s come out about Roald Dahl’s antisemitism… He seems like a twat basket. And I’m not linking it for that reason. But this book is on my list.
Cozy Christmas romances don’t get much better than A Winter’s Tale! I live for the cozy this time of year.
Sarah Morgan might be the queen of cozy Christmas romance. I love her Christmas books!
Another classic Christmas read! Twas the Night Before Christmas was read to me as a child, and I still read it every year!
The Box of Delightshttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Wolves-Willoughby-Chase-Chronicles-Book/dp/0099572877 opens with what I think is the most satisfyingly Christmassy setting ever. For that alone, it made the list.
Slightly spooky, wintery goodness. The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, while not specifically Christmassy, has a pretty incredible wintery setting. And its a little scary, so its definitely on my list!
I just adored White Boots as a child and its still the perfect Christmas read for me!
I love Agatha Christie, and Christmas really isn’t complete for me without a cozy Christmas detective mystery. I always get a few vintage mysteries for Christmas. But, of course, Hercule Poirot’s Christmas is my favourite!
What’s your favourite Christmas read? Do you read any of the ones on my list?
