Christmas Books | The SIXTH Day of Blogmas!

On the sixth day of Blogmas, Leeann’s blog gave to me… two Christmas book reads

Halfway through Blogmas, and I’m finally writing a book post. I don’t read for fun during the school year, so today was the first day I could pick up a book I wanted to read. To get in the holiday spirit, I decided to read two Christmas books: Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris and A Christmas Story by Jean Shepherd (the stories that inspired the movie).

Some of my favorite Christmas books of the past have been Miracle on 34th Street, The Polar Express, and The Legend of Holly Claus (and this book about a little girl meeting Santa and wanting her friend’s dad to be cured from cancer…Googling, Googling… On Christmas Eve! Sad but heartwarming…but there’s cancer in it so you knew that). But Christmas books are such a tricky genre. I don’t go for the cheesy love story or sudden overcoming of hardship that Christmas makes better. I like my Christmas books like I like all my books–realistic and, at least a little bit, humorous.

Both Holidays on Ice and A Christmas Story seemed to fit the bill.

I’ll have reviews up on both of these soon, but for now I just wanted to share what I’ll be reading the next couple of days!

What are your favorite books to read at Christmas?
