The True Book Addict is hosting a Christmas Reading Challenge, starting on Thanksgiving Day (11/26) and going through 12/31. The challenge is to read between 1 and 3 Christmas-themed books during this time period.
Being as I've already read 2 Christmas books and it isn't even Halloween yet, I'm definitely going for all 3. I just wish I had saved the 2 books I've already read for this challenge. They were both awesome books that I enjoyed very much, so I am hoping I will be able to find more like them. It's going to be hard waiting until Thanksgiving to read any more of this genre. In fact, I'm not sure I will be able to wait. I'm feeling in need of extra-cozy early this year!
The books I've already read were On Strike for Christmas by Sheila Roberts and The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber (almost finished).
My reading pool for this challenge includes:
*A Wish for Christmas - Thomas Kinkade
*A Christmas Star - Thomas Kinkade
*A Dog Named Christmas - Greg Kincaid
*The Christmas List - Richard Paul Evans
*The Christmas Secret - Donna Van Liere
*White Christmas Pie - Wanda E. Brunstetter
*Plum Pudding Murder - Joanne Fluke
*The Christmas Sweater - Glenn Beck
*A Creed Country Christmas - Linda Lael Miller
*Wolfsbane and Mistletoe - Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, Keri Arthur, & Carrie Vaughn
*Skipping Christmas - John Grisham
I guess I need to start reading Christmas books earlier in the next year. By the time Thanksgiving hits, I get so busy preparing for Christmas that it really cuts into my reading time. I did manage to read several before the season got too busy, though I didn't manage to read any from my reading pool!
