Top Ten Tuesday — Best Christmas Novellas

13 Sep

Thanks to the folks at The Broke And The Bookish for hosting Top 10 Tuesday every week. This week’s theme is Favorite Genres. To find out what other bloggers love to read, click HERE.



It’s September and while Pumpkin Everything is popping up, the temperatures here in Middle Georgia are still in the 90s. It may be a bit hot, but when the calendar says it’s Fall, I like to begin my Christmas reading. Every year I look for a Christmas fix in books. Here is a list of some great books to read to get you in the Christmas mood, no matter the date or temperature! I’ve divided them into categories, although there is some crossover, so that you can pick the best for your mood and tastes.

    I love this list! So specific, too. I will keep this in mind for when Christmas rolls around 🙂 As I’m going with the classics in my very first own TTT post, I’m gonna say my favorite Christmas book is ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens 😀
    Here’s my post if you want to check it out:

      Oh yes, A Christmas Carol! I loved that book too. I read it to my kids years ago on a road trip home from grandma’s house one Thanksgiving. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    You are an expert reviewer and organizer, Beckie! I have several of these, but haven’t been able to read them yet. But two are “best of the best” for me: A Redbird Christmas and Cynthia Ruchti’s An Endless Christmas.

      Good choices, Carole. As to my expert status — just chalk it up to OCD!!😀

    I agree – this is a wonderful list! I’ve read and enjoyed many of these titles – A Redbird Christmas is my favorite.

      My book club tries to read a Christmas themed book for our December meeting. We loved Redbird!
