It is no secret that I love to read! But it’s hard to squeeze in reading during the school year. Winter Break is the perfect time to make time to read. Grab your Kindle, a cup of tea and get reading!

I know everyone loves a good Hallmark Christmas movie, but I’ll take a holiday book any day. And most of the books on this list can be read in about the same time it takes to watch one of those movies!

Here’s a list of my favorite Christmas books to read that you can easily rip through during your Winter Break!

Years ago, I read Blue Christmas by Mary Kay Andrews and it’s simply a delightful book! I still find myself thinking about the characters. Does anyone else feel like characters become their friends and you’re sad when a book ends? Well, I’m not sure how it took me so long to realize this is a series but I am thrilled to jump into the rest.  Can’t wait for a catch-up with Weezie and Bebe!

You know my guilty pleasure is a good Lauren Layne book! An Ex for Christmas is a super-duper fun book that you can read in an afternoon by the fire sipping cocoa! I found myself grinning and giggling throughout.

Okay, grab your tissues for The Christmas Shoes. You guys…I never cry and this book gets me every.single.time. I love to re-read this book each year. It’s a wonderful story and it has a few sequels, too.  And for those of you who love a good movie…good news! Rob Lowe stars in The Christmas Shoes Movie so at least when you’re sobbing you have something good to look at 🙂

A few years back Elin Hildebrand {one of my top-three authors!} started writing a Winter series about a family on Nantucket.  Well, I love everything about Nantucket, so I was hooked immediately! She’s written four books in the series so make sure to start with Winter Street. This book will introduce you to everyone in the Quinn family. It’s always fun to catch up with old friends!

This year, Elin wrote Winter in Paradise – a standalone holiday book. It doesn’t take place in Nantucket, but it’s still an excellent winter read! I got my copy in my Book of the Month box, but of course, it’s available on Amazon, too!

  1. I have read ever one of Donna VanLiere’s holiday books…..many of them more than once. She came out with another one this past fall which I devoured over Christmas break. If you like her writings, you would also likely enjoy the books by Melody Carlson. I have read all of her Christmas books as well and she has quite a few, much like Donna does. Some of my favorites are: Christmas at Harrington’s, The Christmas Cat, The Christmas Joy Ride, The Christmas Angel Project, The Christmas Pony and The Christmas Blessing. I could read Christmas books year round, but seeing your posts about the stories that take place in Nantucket interest me. I’ve never been there, and living in NH it’s not too far away, so maybe I’ll get there someday. Maybe these will inspire me to go. Happy reading!!
