‘Tis the season for all the perfect fuzzy feelings and holiday vibes! I actually love holiday books even though I don’t actually celebrate the winter holidays! There’s just something about the fun times and romance that blossoms even in the darkest of days and when seasonal depression is at its height! (But also, do I even read that many? Who knows… recommendations are welcome!)
Anyway, here are some holiday books I’ve enjoyed! And just so you know, if you enjoy audiobooks and you want to help indie bookstores, libro.fm has a great holiday promo going on! If you gift/buy any credit bundles, you’ll get a free seasonal audiobook as well!
Just Like Magic by Sarah Hogle
I couldn’t NOT include this magical and hilarious book that not only includes calling on the Holiday Spirit (aka Hall), but also a little bit of a revenge and a dash of fake engagement! Plus, the sword fight scene is just too iconic!
The Holiday Switch by Tif Marcelo
I love the small town romance PLUS the book blogging about holiday romances! Of course, the romance was adorable too and my copy is thoroughly tabbed from cute scenes!
Once Upon an Eid Edited by SK Ali and Aisha Saeed
I mean I had to include EId even though this is meant to be a stereotypical winter holiday round up! This collection of short stories is just so beautiful and pure and heartwarming!
Books I want to read!
A Merry Little Meet Cute by Sierra Simone and Julie Murphy features a steamy plus-size holiday rom-com about an adult film star who is semi-accidentally cast as a lead in a family-friendly Christmas movie, and the former bad-boy pop star she falls in love with!
Tis the Season for Revenge by Morgan Elizabeth sounds like chaos honestly and one day I just know I’m going to enjoy the vibes of holiday romance mixed with revenge dating.
I’ve realized while creating this blog post that despite loving holiday books, I haven’t read too many?! I need to branch out and find some other holidays too so if you have any recommendations for other holidays (like Hannukah or Diwali, etc), I’d love to check them out!
