Books read in December 2017

There was a definite festive slant to the books I read last month but with everything Christmas going on, I only managed three novels and one non-fiction book:

I love a good lifestyle book especially when they look pretty in photos! Tanya’s Christmas is a festive how-to guide with crafts and recipes and lots of details about how Tanya Burr spends Christmas. If you’re a fan of hers, you’ll love it and I can’t wait to do some baking from it.

The Hygge Holiday is a fun women’s fiction novel all about how letting in all things cosy can make your life better. I’m a bit obsessed with all things Danish so I had to pick this one up.

My next festive read was Heidi Swain’s Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells, which is a lovely Christmas romance that won’t fail to warm your heart! My publisher’s gave me this one and I definitely want to read more from this author.

My pick of the month is a book I’ve been meaning to read for years and is probably the best known Christmas book out there – A Christmas Carol 🎄

It was hard not to read this with the voice of The Muppets in my head as I’ve watched their version every year and I hadn’t realised how faithful they are to the book! It’s impossible not to be charmed by the redemption at the heart of the book and it’s amazing how much of the Christmas we all now celebrate was created by Dickens. I’m really pleased I’ve ticked it off my to-read list.

What did you enjoy reading in December?
