Blogmas Day 13: The Best Festive Books To Read This Year


Good Morning Lovelies, 

Books have become my big find again this past year. From romance to thrills, I have read all sorts this year, surprising myself with 10 books in one month in fact. However, for me, Christmas is the best time to pick up a Christmas read. Super cosy. Super happy and very sweet. There is nothing better. 

Here are a few of my favourites that I think you should all read at Christmas time. Old and new, you will love the happy feeling they leave you with…

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens - A classic that doesn’t need any description. Everyone should experience reading this at least once. 

Skipping Christmas by John Grisham - Love Christmas With The Kranks? This book is what the film is based on. If you haven’t experienced either, then you need to make 2022 the year that you do. It is a personal favourite feature of mine and the book is just as good. 

The Holiday Swap by Maggie Knox - If you love The Great British Bake Off, then this is the book for you. When an accident occurs, two twins switch places, in the hopes to save their lives. Romance stuns the pair, leaving you feeling like you are reading a Netflix film in the making.


A Special Cornish Christmas by Phillipa Ashley - Another cosy romance, this is a quick read that will have you booking a festive trip to Cornwall before you know it. 

Christmas At Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan - If you want a sweet Christmas themed story, then this is it. The cakes and bakes mentioned will have you filling your home with homemade goods automatically. 

The Arctic Curry Club by Dani Redd - Not a fully fledged Christmas book, but set in a festive type atmosphere. This is filled with girl power and the perfect read to fall into during the odd week between Christmas Day and New Years. 

These are only a few books that have helped me get in the festive spirit over the last couple of years. I am always looking for recommendations though, so please do let me know if you have any. As a huge Christmas fan, I am always wanting to add to my collection. Even in the middle of May.
