Crissy's Holiday Book Recommendations (Part 1) by Cardeno C.

Happy Monday! I have such a special blog post to share. My dear friend Crissy is a major holiday book reader and she put together a post full of great reading recommendations. The list is so amazing, in fact, that I'm splitting it in half and sharing some today and some next week. My huge thanks to Crissy and if anybody else has recommendations, please share them in the comments. Here's to happy reading! - CC

Welcome to CC’s first Holiday Spectacular Book List. Okay. I just made the name up on the fly, but it’s whatever. I’m Crissy and I'm presenting to you my favorite holiday stories. I have a bunch so hold on to your earmuffs.

It’s a well-known fact that holiday stories are my kryptonite. No joke. For years I have created a spreadsheet (I’m a bit of a geek) and plotted release dates and read-by dates and what to read and when for this particular time of year because there are so many amazing stories by so many amazing authors.

Yes, there are SO many good ones out there and when CC asked me to put together a list, I won’t lie, it took me a bit to get them all together. So, this is by no means an exhaustive list and I’ve probably left some off. In no particular order, here are my favorite holiday/advent/Christmas/Hanukkah books.
