During the holiday season, we hang Christmas decorations, listen to Christmas music, and don ugly Christmas sweaters. So it only makes sense that the same holiday cheer extends to our bookshelves as well. This year, there are tons of new holiday-centric books you’re going to want to read. These aren’t the traditional children’s Christmas books you might be thinking of that feature jolly elves and cartoon reindeer. I’m talking about cozy Christmas fiction novels.
If you’re a regular reader of Christmas books, get ready, because your favorite authors are back with brand new wintery titles. And if you’re new to the wonderful world of Christmas fiction, allow me to introduce you to your new favorite genre.
Reading a Christmas fiction novel is like reading a Hallmark Christmas movie script. It’s holly, jolly, and oh so festive. These feel-good books are filled with quaint characters, quirky mysteries, and plenty of sweet (and sometimes steamy) holiday romances. They pile on the snow and the family drama. And, of course, you’ll find the occasional Christmas miracle. So make a mug of hot cocoa or mulled wine, snuggle under your warmest blanket, and settle in for a long winter’s read by the fire with these cozy Christmas books.
