Festive Reading List

What do you mean it's way too soon to be dropping the C bomb? No, wait, I totally agree. It is way too soon to be dropping the C bomb. The general consensus in our house is that Christmas doesn't get a look in until after my birthday later this month. But feeling festive is still allowed, right? Guys? Stay with me!

The problem is, I cannot walk past a fairy light without feeling all warm and cosy right now. So this year I'm throwing caution to the wind and feeling incredibly festive before it's socially acceptable to feel incredibly festive. Which means that I've been reading lots of Christmassy treats and it would have been rudolf me not to blog about them. (Soz).



Here are the books I've been getting up to snow good with. (Someone call the pun police).


MURDER UNDER THE CHRISTMAS TREE
I mean, what's more cosy than reading about a gruesome crime or two while you are busy sending the mince pies mouth-bound? Absolutely nothing, that's what. This is a collection of short stories from the likes of Arthur Conan Doyle (sadly not a relative of mine), Ian Rankin, Val McDermid and more. Ten classic Christmas mysteries to sink your teeth into and the best news is, with these short stories you can totally drop off after a sherry or two, safe in the knowledge that you wont need to retrace your steps the next time you pick the book up. Available here

MISTLETOE ON 34th STREET, LISA DICKENSON 
There are many, many things to like about this book. I've never been to New York, let alone during Christmas, so it was delicious to feel like I was there for this seriously funny read. Also, main girl Olivia is one sassy, career-driven heroine. LOVE THAT! This is a brilliantly sparkly romcom for the festive season. Available here

A LITERARY CHRISTMAS: AN ANTHOLOGY
I actually bought this as a gift for my mum-in-law, only to spot that she already had it. I was going take it back to the shop but it looked so cute that I tossed it on my bookshelf instead. What a relief! There's loads going on in here... extracts, poems, short stories from Dickens to Benjamin Zephaniah and my all-time fave, Nancy Mitford. Perfect for dipping in and out of. Available here.

Aaaaand I'm off to dig out my C word jumper. [Not that c word 😳].
