So, as much as I wish winter were nearing our rearview window, my heart knows there is one last lap on its farewell tour. So, if a snow day is in your immediate future, here are three books to add to your reading list that will entertain you, from watching today’s falling snow to the appearance of those first spring blooms.
Around the end of October, I compiled a holiday reading list, and the moment the calendar marked November 1, I gave myself full permission to dive headlong into festive fiction. I downloaded audiobooks to listen to in the car when driving from store to store, arrived early to the school pick-up line with a book in tow, and, as often as I could, ended my nights with a cup of chamomile and a few more pages before I turned off the lights.
These small changes to incorporate more rest and reading have completely transformed my season. If you are looking for a few holiday-themed reads, here are a few books I’ve enjoyed recently.
PS. This list is the second part, so don’t forget to check out the first part of my holiday reading list. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from me and all of my books to you and yours.
Although I enjoy reading within all genres, one of my habits is to lean into festive fiction the closer it gets to the holidays. Since my family refuses to cater to anything Christmas until after Thanksgiving, my reading list, packed full of small towns decked out in holiday lights, tinsel, and falling snow, is my form of rebellion. I begin diving into these warm and fuzzy beauties around mid-October, refusing to venture into other genres until after the New Year.
