Literary Christmas 2021

I enjoy reading Christmas books after Thanksgiving through the end of the year. Tarissa at In the Bookcase hosts a Literary Christmas challenge for that purpose. You can find the details here, but the basic idea is to read Christmas books and write posts about them.

I have several unread Christmas books in my Kindle app. Here are a few I’d like to get to:

A Quilt for Christmas by Sandra Dallas, set during the Civil War. I am listening to it currently.

A Christmas by the Sea by Melody Carlson. This appealed to me because I grew up on the Texas coastline, so my early Christmases were more seaside than wintery. I had this on last year’s list and regretted not getting to it.

Expecting Christmas by multiple authors, a daily devotional. Free for the Kindle as of this writing.

The Ornament Keeper by Eva Marie Everson, contemporary fiction about a couple separated after 20 years of marriage (99 cents as of this writing).

The Yuletide Angel by Sandra Ardoin, an author new to me. A woman in the 1890s who helps people behind the scenes may be in need if help herself.

I have eight more, but we’ll see how I do with these first.

Do you like to read Christmas books in December? What’s in your stack?

  1. Hi Barbara,
    What an intriguing list! And you have 8 more potential titles to boot? You’re going to have a busy December. Hehehe!

    I found ‘A Christmas by the Sea’ to be delightful. As for the other books on your list, I look forward to hearing more about them. 🙂

    Merry reading!

  2. Barbara, I like to read fiction before I fall asleep at night. I had just finished a really good book was waiting on holds from the library when I first saw this post. Thanks to you, I’m now reading “Christmas By the Sea.” 🙂 So far, it’s good and sweet, just what I need about now!

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
