Holiday Reads – Reader Recommended

Your holiday book is waiting.

I asked, you answered. And here are the results. The question–what is your go-to holiday book? Or what is one you’ve heard good things about? It’s no secret that I’ve just launched my 2nd Christmas Romance and I won’t be shy, I’d love for you to read it this season. But this post was truly born out of an interest in the other great books out there that inspire the Christmas Spirit or at the very least, allow us to take a break from the shop-till-you-drop frenzy! It was so much fun to compile this list. Over twenty reader-recommended book titles, some classics, some new releases. Some for adults, some for children (which are also for adults.) Some that have been made into movies. All a great way to spend the month!

The list is in the order they were suggested on the original Facebook post. The title has a link if you want to check it out followed by the author name is first and then the person or persons who suggested it. And if you happen to scroll to the end you’ll notice my book there on the list. I promise I didn’t pay, bribe, or in any way try to influence Rhonda’s comment.  Enjoy!
