Books I Love Reading During the Holidays


All the holidays are here, and it’s that time of year when people ask me if I have a favorite Christmas book I like to read, and unto them I answer, “Not really?”

Below the cut are five books I like to revisit during Christmas and five books I think I’d enjoy. It’s hard to find books that aren’t romance when it comes to The Most Wonderful Time, and books that deal with magic or science fiction as well as holidays are even rarer. And don’t get me started on trying to find Hanukkah or Kwanzaa books (for adults).
