Challenge 6: On My Library Shelf

I am one of those people who like to read about places and actually be there at the same time.  Gives me goosebumps just to think about it.  Naturally, that also means that I love to read holiday books during the holiday season.  It is one of the few times I allow myself the pleasure of reading books that really aren't that literary but satisfying in the description of Christmas traditions, foods, dress and whatever else might be a part of the holiday season.

Here is what is on my library shelf for the Christmas season:

The Christmas Cottage:  a young interior designer meets up with her childhood sweetheart as she is designing the perfect honeymoon for her best friend. 

Mistletoe Mischief:  A returning soldier meets up with a local woman and her daughter during a Christmas parade.  His daughter suggests they eat lunch together and the story goes from there!

1225 Christmas Tree Lane:  A Debbie Macomber book that I just had to read because of the title.

The Christmas Letters:

Mistletoe in Maine:

A Redbird Christmas:

The last three haven't been read as of yet, so you'll have to wait for a summary! 

One day I want to make a tree like this! 
The Richard A. Gleeson Library in San Francisco displays a
Christmas tree made out of the National Union Catalog.

  1. If you haven't read the Flavia de Luce series, you need to. One of them (I Am Half Sick of Shadows, I think), while not specifically focused on Christmas, does take place at Christmas, and our intrepid 11 year old heroine is determined to set a trap for Father Christmas on the roof of the family estate.

  2. I can't say that I know of too many Christmas/holiday books, as a matter of fact. Definitely want to take a look into some of these - thanks!
