Festive Books

Is there anything better than curling up with a glass of mulled wine and a good book by the fire? Even though December is a hugely busy month for everyone, it’s also a very cosy one, and with darker evenings, I tend to find my evening routine starts much earlier, giving me more time for reading, watching movies and a good old pamper!

I always have a big pile of books I want to read, but a festive story is one of the most indulgent you can get and I push everything else aside and treat myself to a good Christmas story!

There’s so many great seasonal books, but I thought I’d recommend a small mix of classic and new!

A Boy Called Christmas – Matt Haig

Firstly, I feel like all I need to say is Matt Haig and that should be enough to make you read this book! I do love Matt Haig and all of his books. This story is the story of Santa when he was just a child and is a great spin on a festive tale.

A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens

This book is such a cult classic when it comes to Christmas stories. The story of Scrooge is not an easy one, so this is probably not for you if you’re looking for something light and easy. For a true Christmas story though, A Christmas Carol is such a great read.

Twas The Night Before Christmas – Clement Clarke Moore

Such a classic story that everyone needs to read in the run-up to Christmas day! This one is great if you have children and for the whole family to enjoy together.

Christmas Shopaholic – Sophie Kinsella

A funny light-hearted read for those of us who just want a happy, easy read to pick up and put down throughout the festive season.

The Country Village Winter Wedding – Cathy Lake

This is the book I’m reading this December and without knowing, the main character is from Edinburgh! The reviews say it’s uplifting and full of festive magic, so join me in this festive read!
