While I love what winter brings - holidays, time with family, skiing, comfy clothes and lots of food - I hate cold weather. So, Arizona is a great fit for me. One thing that is hard for me is that it never really feels much like winter in Phoenix. This year, I've decided to commit a chunk of my November and December reading to holiday or winter themed books. Below are the books I have slated for 2017. Spy any books you're reading this year? Do you have any suggestions for what I should add to my list? Let me know in the comments!
Moonlight over Manhattan by Sarah Morgan
I spied this book while perusing a 1 pound section at a London bookstore in October. It was an uncorrected proof from HQ and was glittery and said #QueenofChristmas on the cover. I was sold. And the store ended up giving it to me for free since I purchased SO MANY BOOKS!
Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa De La Cruz
Confession - I don't think I've ever read Pride and Prejudice in its entiretly. I'm horrible at reading the classics. That being said, I'm a sucker for a Pride and Prejudice retelling. When I saw this on a Goodreads Giveaway, I knew I needed it. I ended up winning a copy and am so excited to read it!
Christmas in London by Anita Hughes
I saw people posting about this book on Instagram and it seemed like the perfect holiday read. Plus, I just got back from visiting London, so I thought maybe it could help stir up some vacation vibes. I was so excited when their PR (Get Red PR) offered to send me a copy!
Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak
Another book that I had been eyeing and entering every contest for was Seven Days of Us. I've heard this isn't necessarily a holiday book, but it takes place over Christmas, so I thought that it the holidays would be a perfect time to read it. I won my copy from a Goodreads Giveaway.
Kiss Me in New York by Catherine Rider
I'm honestly not quite sure how I first heard of this book, but the cover design and the concept convinced me that I needed to read it. The marketing assistant at Kids Can Press was so sweet to send a copy my way. I can't wait to start it!
Do you know of any holiday reads that I need to add to my 2017 list? Will you be reading any of these along with me?
