Christmas Reads Just for Fun

In every season I love a good book. 
Seems like we often see great summer reading lists but today I'm sharing a few fiction Christmas reads that look like fun. I know there's much to be done in the next few weeks but I'm definitely going to spend some time with a good book or two.

In Christmas at Harrington's, the main character finds a red coat which lands her a job 
as Mrs. Santa Clause. The reviews are great and the story line sounds sweet.

I adore Fannie Flagg and A Redbird Christmas has been around for several years. Have you read it?
Like her other books, it's a sweet story about the lives of small town people. I enjoyed this one a few years ago.

Mary Kay Andrews always gives us amazing southern stories too. With names like Weezie and BeBe and a setting like Savannah, GA this has to be a great book. I'll definitely be reading this one. 

What's on your night stand to read right now?

These sound like perfect picks for my Mom-in-law. She gets down this time of year and they sound like the perfect pick-me-up. Happy Holidays and I will try and find these, Sandi

I've read the Mary Kay Andrews, Christmas Bliss. It was great, but I'm biased... I love all of her books! I'll have to add the other two to my "To Read" list! Thanks for sharing them! :) ~Rhonda

I read Christmas bliss every year! Right now I have reading Skipping Christmas by John Grisham again. I love it. Thanks for the recommendation on the first two. I will be reading those this year!!!

I'm a sucker for Christmas books too. If you like Southern with a comic twist my may want to try Joan Hess, O Little Town of Maggody. It's a series about a small town in Arkansas. Hi-jinks abound.

These books look like good holiday reads Stacey. I haven't picked out a Christmas book yet, so thanks for the picks. Have a nice Thursday! xo

Stacey - I love love love Mary Kay Andrews. Blue Christmas is such a fun read. I can't wait to check the rest of your list out. I always need something to keep me occupied when we're at the cabin. Hugs, CoCo

Good Morning Stacey,

Thank you for these suggestions, I too enjoy a sweet down home story line! I am sure you have read the Mitford series, they have always been one of my favorites.

I love the Fannie Flagg books.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

They all sound good! I think I am going to download the Mary Kay Andrews one to read.

You're right Stacey, there's a lot of attention given to summer reading, but not this time of year. It's been way too long since I've curled up with a good book, but I LOVE to read so I really don't know why that is!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

My mom loves reading Mary Kay Andrews. I think I need to give those a try. Thanks for the ideas!

Benita Roberts said...

I love anything by Mary Kay Andrews, but Christmas Bliss was a little disappointing to me...I read it last year. When you read it, let me know what you think. I've added Christmas At Harrington's to my list! :-)

Laura Lane said...

I enjoyed Christmas at Harringtons last year. I'm reading An Endless Christmas now.

Aleta said...

I haven't read these before, but I love Christmas novels. I'm also on the look out for children's Christmas books too for my almost 3 year old son :)

Jann Olson said...

Stacey, I hate to admit it, but the only Christmas books I have read in quite a few years are kids books. I need to find time to read at least one of these this season! Even if it's between Christmas and New Years. Thanks for sharing them with SYC.
hugs,
Jann

Lisa said...

Hi Stacey
I love Chtistams books too. Just lent Redbird Christmas to one of my friends last night. Such a sweet story. I also collect childrens' Christmas books because I love the illustrations. Our local thrift shop has everything halfprice today so I am going to stop by and see if I can pick up any new Christmas books.
