Favorite Holiday Books

The holidays are here, and it's time to chat about our favorite holiday books!  For me, my favorite holiday books tend to focus around reading with my children.  Therefore, they tend to be children's books.  For example, the ultimate classic by Dr. Suess . . .


Or, this beautiful story by Chris Van Allsburg . . .


Or, this fun-loving book about snowmen by Caralyn Buehner . . .


Or, this lesser known Christmas classic by Lawrence David . . .


And, you gotta love ALL the holiday scenes in the infamous Harry Potter books . . .


BUT, I know that there are so many wonderful holiday reads out there than these.  Tell us your personal favorites.  And, can you get a little more diverse in your recommendations than I have?  What about books for adults?  What about stories that involve something other than Christmas?  I will compile all your suggestions and share them with you later this month!

  2. The Polar Express and Snowmen at Night and Harry Potter would all go on my list, too, Tif! I would also add The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry (which is a short story), The Mitten by Jan Brett, and, of course, Dickens' A Christmas Carol. :)

    1. Becca Lostinbooks ... Thanks for the additional recommendations! I completely forgot about The Mitten, and sadly, I have never read A Christmas Carol. I really need to fix that!

  3. A Christmas Carol is out in several audiobook editions; I try to listen to it every year. (It's short!) My favorite narrators so far are Patrick Stewart and Jim Dale. For literary fiction, I got sucked into Eight White Nights by Andre Aciman that is set in the week between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve
