Listless Monday, Christmas Edition

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

I've noticed in my own Christmas reading (which seems to rarely happen around Christmas) that kids books are always way better than adult books.  You'll notice that reflected in this list, which is by no means anywhere near complete.

Please share your favorite Christmas/holiday books!

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. Agreed! Love the children's books.
    Our very most favorite and cannot be read without tears of happiness:
    Christmas Day in the Morning by Pearl S. Buck

  2. Oh! I totally need to read more Christmas books, but I don't think it's going to be this year, but I'm totally adding a majority of these to my TBR list!!

    My favourites are Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle, and a short story by Louisa May Alcott called The Quiet Little Woman.

  3. I just started Miracle on 34th Street with my daughters. I remember reading it as a child and loving it, but haven't read it since. So far, we are all enjoying it.

  4. Oooh, the tale of three trees is beautiful! She's a really good author. Her book "The Silver Sword" was riveting.

  5. Des, I haven't heard of that one! I've got to read more Christmas books.

    Court, I can't believe I forgot Let It Snow (which I haven't read, but seen many times reviewed). And I've never even heard of that story - I love Alcott, so I need to find it.

    Tina, and I thought it was only a movie - silly me!

    BookMaid, I am forever learning about too many new books to read. I didn't know she'd written other stuff.


Love it when you comment!
