Christmas Books – Top 10 Tuesday

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?

  1. Great list! I love A CHRISTMAS CAROL and re-read it every year. It puts me in the holiday spirit every time! We also read THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS together as a family every Christmas Eve. It’s a tradition and I’ll keep it up no matter how old my kids get 🙂

    Happy TTT!
