Good Holiday Reads

I posted a few days ago about how I'm participating in the 2009 Holiday Reading Challenge. Right now I have Ex-Mas by Kate Brian and The Gift by Cecelia Ahern on my list to read. I have some others on hold and I'm hoping they get to the library in time. Hold lists for holiday books start early!!

I'd love your help making my Holiday Reading list. What is your favorite holiday read? Or what new release are you looking forward to?


  1. one of my fav holiday books is "A Christmas Story" by Jean Shepherd. It's like the movie, but funnier, more in depth and longer. It's a tradition in my family to read it and watch the movie.

  2. I currently have Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle checked out of the library. I haven't read it yet but it looks really good!!

  3. I read Let It Snow last year and it was one of my faves. I'm sure I'll be re-reading it again this year!:)

  4. If you like kinda sad stories about people with illnesses. Lurlene McDaniel has A Book called Starry, Starry Night where there are three really short stories about these people who go through tough things around christmas or help someone out. One is about a girl with a newborn sister who is going to die,a girl who helps a dying boy helps him with happines, and the last one is about a girl who takes care of this baby and wants to give it up for adoption.

    They are kinda sad and short and are pretty good. If you don't mind that kind of thing.
    They are not all Christmasy/holdiday but deal with what you should in the season time and dealing with tough things.

  5. I just read Christmas Cookie Club and Lakeshore Christmas this year - both adult books and EXCELLENT stories.

    YA has some great titles: 12 Dates of Christmas, Kissing Snowflakes, Icing on the Lake (maybe more winter than holiday), Secret Santa, Snow in the Love, and Let it Snow.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
