    Are you joining in? If so, good luck! 


      1. OMG! You have a ton of holiday books to read! I had a tough time finding them this year. Great selection for whatever mood you end up being in ;)

        1. As I said, some of these I've had for a while. But yeah, it's a lot and I shouldn't have a problem finding one to fit my mood.

      2. This sounds like fun and what a great list of books! Enjoy and good luck!

      3. I signed up! I have a ton of Christmas books, too -- way more than I can read in a week. I didn't list mine, but I liked seeing your list - you have some enticing titles on there. Just a heads-up: you might want to take Heartsong Cottage off the list, because it's really not a holiday book despite the cover. (It's good, just not all that Christmassy.)

        1. Oh yay! I'm glad you're joining in. Good to know about Heartsong, thanks.

      4. What a great list of books! I still need to read the 3rd Klaus Brother book...thanks for the reminder!

        1. The fourth book is out next month s lo better get reading! :)


      Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let's talk!
