The best time for cozing up with a glass of wine/hot chocolate/tea/coffee and a great book is here. Regardless if it is in front of the fireplace, or the Netflix version of such:), or while waiting to board the plane or train home, Christmas books are such an irresistible treat. Every year, I try to discover new, magical reads, which amongst the festive celebrations, are a wonderful way to have a ‘me time’ and fully recharge.
These are my top favorite books for Christmas-cozy winter nights, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
CHRISTMAS UNDER THE STARS
By Karen Swan
All Karen Swan’s winter novels are breath-taking, but Christmas Under the Stars stole my heart. Friendship, love, betrayal, new start, Northern Lights, adventures, choices.. and a lot of snow, form an enchanting story taking place between Canada and Norway. Christmas is about miracles, hope and family, but also about letting go, and giving life a chance.. to introduce you to the people you have been waiting to meet your whole life, without even knowing.
By Belinda Jones
Anther novel I could not put down! The story follows a travel journalist’s magical adventures in Quebec and Montreal. I love how the tale unfolds to so much more than just a glittering Christmas carnivals and Canadian sight-seeing, but to heart-warming story of true friendship and love. Perfect for readers longing for adventurous, magical, Christmas novel, covered in snow. And I am longing to visit Canada even more after this wonderland.
THE CHRISTMAS SECRET
By Karen Swan
As I already mentioned, I can’t imagine Christmas without a Karen Swan’s novel! The Christmas Secret might not be the typical holiday romance novel, but instead it is a compelling story filled with twist and turns, thrill, secrets, mystery, life choices and much more surprises, wrapped in coziness. Characters are intriguing, revaluations unpredictable, and I will let you discover the rest yourself 🙂
CHRISTMAS WITH YOU
By Sheila O’Flanagan
A somehow nontraditional Christmas read, taking place in a beautiful lodge in Ireland. It is a story with many characters, but the author manages to beautifully make each tale coming to life, leaving you with a feeling that you want to get to know them even more.
If you enjoy reads where fates and stories crosses, and the idea of spending the holidays far away in a cozy hotel/cottage with snowy surroundings, this book might be the perfect one for you.
A PARCEL FOR ANNA BROWNE
By Miranda Dickinson
The novel appealed to me from the very start. The main character Anna receives mysterious, beautiful gifts by a secret sender, and each of them help her get out of the shadow and live life and take chances. I love surprises and the idea of someone out there protecting you, guiding you and caring about you, even without you knowing, hence why I adored reading this enchanting novel tremendously. Strongly recommend it to everyone – and not just during Christmas.
Thank you for reading my blog. I hope this post have inspired your to-read list.
Happy Holidays! Take care for each other, and stay happy and safe. Wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year ahead.
