I was just asked by a friend to recommend some titles with a holiday theme.
I picked a few books from several categories and here is a quick list.
Here are some ideas:
(click on the image for my Amazon link and description)
The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis – because she always delivers a perfect romance.
Twelve Days of Christmas by Debbie Macomber – she is always a reliable read that makes you feel good.
We Wish You A Murderous Christmas by Vicki Delany – her books are always fun and DOG!
Cheddar Off Dead by Julia Buckley – always a quick and fun read.
Eggnog Murder by Leslie Meier – I just adore her books!
Christmas Caramel Murder by Joanne Fluke – another reliable author.
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dare by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan – STRAND BOOK STORE — I don’t need to say anything else. You need to read this one before reading:
The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan is just a heartwarming story (not responsible for tears)
What Light by Jay Asher – I have this one up next on my list.
Snowed In by Rachel Hawthorne – very cute and fun.
If you have sarcastic friends:
The Idiot Girl’s Christmas by Laurie Notaro – can’t top Laurie’s stories – they are laugh out loud.
You Better Not Cry by Augusten Burroughs – heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.
Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris – I love his books so much since they make you think a bit.
DOG BOOKS (You knew this was coming)
The Dogs of Christmas by W. Bruce Cameron – Dogs + Christmas = AWESOME (and some tears)
A Dog Named Christmas by Greg Kincaid – ok, this one cause major emotional outbreaks but so worth it.
The Twelve Dogs of Christmas by David Rosenfeldt
This is part of an ongoing mystery series but you can jump right in anywhere.
