Books to put you in the festive spirit

Christmas is undoubtedly my most favourite time of year. Yes, I hate how bitterly cold it is, but I adore the atmosphere. I love the roaring fire, the food, the Christmas tree and family board games after Christmas dinner that seem to somehow last forever. Oh, and I can’t forget the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special! Christmas time is also a great time to snuggle up in your Christmas pyjamas, so here are a few recommendations to get you started!

  1. My True Love Gave To Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

This holiday themed anthology features someone of the biggest names in YA fiction, from Rainbow Rowell to Holly Black. Anthologies are great because you get to experience a variety of different writers and multiple different stories, and whats the only thing better than one story? MULTIPLE ONES!

2. Let it Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson

Can you tell I love a good anthology? Let it Snow is a collection of three holiday romances comprising of three separate stories that all intertwine with each other. And the bets part? It’s all set on Christmas Eve when a snowstorm hits a small town. This book is bound to get you in the holdiay spirit.

3. Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Christmas in New York. Need I say more? No but seriously, this book sounds like how i want my own love story to play out. Lily leaves a red notebook full of challenges on a shelf in a bookstore and Dash is the one to find them. Yes it sounds cheesy and cliche, but if you can’t be cheesy and cliche at Christmas, when can you be?

4. Harry Potter series by J K Rowling

I don’t know why, but there’s something about Christmas that always makes me think of Harry Potter. Maybe it’s because ITV always play the films at Christmas, but I find myself reaching for the book series as soon as December hits.

5. Early Riser by Jasper Fforde

In Early Riser, the human population hibernate for the whole of winter. And that sounds like something I would like to be doing. Of course, this book isn’t just about the population sleeping, it’s about Charlie Worthing and the group of misfits whose job it is to ensure that the population hibernate safely. As you a imagine, it’s not all plain sailing.
