Christmas Books

11 days!

Hey guys, this is Abi here!
And if there's one thing that I love to read at Christmas is a heart-warming Christmas story that is just... really cute!
So, today I am going to be listing some of my favourite books to read at Christmas!
Some of these are going to be some that I like to read over and over at Christmas time, some I really want to read that seem to have something to do with Christmas and others I have only recently purchased! (By that I mean literally, hours ago).
So, let's  not dawdle like a Christmas bauble (I'm sorry, I had a Chocolate Frappucino today)
So, let's get to it!

1. The Harry Potter series, by J K Rowling
I mean, this series aren't a Christmas series, but the Christmas parts just make me warm up from the inside because they are just so beautiful, (and they make what else happens that much more tragic), but I just love the Christmassy parts of this series. If you've read Harry Potter, you know what I'm talking about. And if you haven't WHAT ARE YOU DOING IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THIS SERIES (the Illustrated Version of "Philosopher's Stone" has just come out and its BEAUTIFUL, so if you haven't read Harry Potter, go and read it)

(Isn't it gorgeous?)

2. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S Lewis
This book just screams winter, with well, you know, even if you have only seen the film (and I slowly raise my hand...) 
Now, it's all icy, and beautiful (at least it is in the movie)
This one is about four siblings (Lucy I think, Susan, Edmund and the other that I cannot for the life of me remember PETER, I think, it just came to me) that are trying to stop the Ice Queen (it's been like 4 years since I saw the film, please cut me some slack)
(Really need to read this series)

(This cover looked the prettiest)

3. Snow Like Ashes, by Sara Raasch
Now, the only connection that I'm guessing that this book has to Christmas is, you guessed it: It has Snow in the title. (I say "I'm guessing" because I literally bought this book a matter of hours ago, and I have not researched this book a whole lot), but the cover is gorgeous and wonderful, and I hope that that is the kind of reaction that I am going to have to the actual words. 
Also, I just read the back, and there is a Kingdom of Winter, so yes there is a connection to Winter, and therefore, Christmas. 
This book actually really looks frosty, and (it looks like) it has a struggle, and hope and an incredible protagonist, and I can't actually wait to read it (even though I didn't even know what it was about like a minute ago), but yeah!

4. Let It Snow, by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle 
Now, this is the book that I created this post for. This is the cute book to read at Christmas, and if I know John Green, it will be cute and funny, but not all cutesy either. I don't really know much about the other authors, but I am really anticipating this story, as I am really in the mood for a cutesie Christmas book at the moment. This book is about three different stories that intertwine and it's surrounding Christmas, and that is all I really need to know, to read it really! 
(Also bought hours ago)

And that was my Christmas Books post! I really hope you enjoyed it! If you have any thoughts on the books listed please feel free to comment what you thought of about these books, or anything else!
