It’s the 6th Day of Book Blogmas and Parajunkee is making us share some of our favorite holiday reads that would make the perfect stocking stuffers. Or if we aren’t the sort to read holiday-themed books we can share some books we think are awesome to read during the holidays.
I’m part of that latter group. I can’t remember the last book I read that was specifically centered around Christmas, New Years, or any of the other winter holidays. I seem to recall jokingly starting to write a short story last winter that had a winter theme to it pursuant to a conversation I had with our generous Blogmas host. But actually reading any holiday-themed books? None that I can recall.
I may have a few recommends, however.
If you haven’t heard of this awesome holiday event, be sure to check out Parajunkee’s blog post for more details. And for just a quick peek at the schedule for the next 12 days, here’s the amazing graphic she designed.
Really any book by a favorite author is great to receive in one’s stocking. Though, maybe putting books in a stocking on a mantel above a lit fire is not the way to go.
Anyway… The holidays can be such a hectic time of year for anyone. Reading books that hold the promise of adventure – or epic adventure – or romance, are ones that I think make great holiday reads.
Here are a few that come to mind…
- FIRE & FLOOD by Victoria Scott
- The His Fair Assassin trilogy by Robin LaFevers
- A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU by Claudia Gray
- The Elemental Trilogy by Sherry Thomas (books one and two are available now)
- SNOW LIKE ASHES by Sara Raasch
- TRIAL BY FIRE by Josephine Angelini
- BOOMERANG by Noelle August
- STAY WITH ME by Jennifer L. Armentrout
- The Ivy Chronicles by Sophie Jordan
- MAYHEM by Jamie Shaw
- BREAKING THE RULES by Katie McGarry
- ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER by Stephanie Perkins
A stocking filled with paranormal romance, fantasy, urban fantasy, high fantasy, sci-fi, dystopia, contemporary fiction, or even those stories set in a post-apocalyptic world are all great holiday reads. Anything that gives you a few minutes to a few hours to escape the stress of shopping, family, and the year-end stuffs at work is the perfect holiday read.
