Merry Christmas!


Hi guys!

I wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas!
And as I'm spending the day with my family, exchanging gifts, eating lots of good food and playing games and maybe squeezing in some reading, I realised there are some books that I associate with Christmas.

First among them is the Harry Potter series, mostly The Sorcerer's Stone. I actually got this one way back when for Christmas and immediately started reading it. And was an instant fan.
A more recent one is Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I always try to read a feel-good book around Christmas and last year my pick was Anna and the French Kiss. I could not put it down and now I'd love nothing more than to re-read it soon.

So, my question is: are there books that you associate with Christmas apart from the books that are actually set in the Holiday season?

I hope you're all having a wonderful time and are spending times with the people you love!

  1. I typically re-read my childhood favorite, the Chronicles of Narnia, around Christmas-time. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe have a Christmas-y feel, but the others don't, and once I read one book I feel the need to read all of them.

  2. Merry Christmas Daisy! The Harry Potter series, as a whole, is definitely the series that I associate with Christmas. Not only did I get the first two books for Christmas, I kind of feel like re-reading them at around that time of year :)

  3. Oooohh!!! I like this question! :) For me it's "Brisingr" and "Inheritance" by Christopher Paolini, and "Touch of Power" by Maria V. Snyder. Annnnd my favorite: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows".

  4. I actually always associate Harry Potter with fall/Halloween. I've read the series a few times, so it normally takes me through Christmas, so I guess it's my Christmas book too!

    I also agree with Stormy. The Chronicles of Narnia is always a feel-good holiday story. :)

  5. I always associate Bleak House by Charles Dickens with Winter/Christmastime. Partly because I got the book for Christmas a few years ago and fell in love with it, and also partly because it's set in late November/early December. It is my all-time favourite book :)
