I love a festive Christmas read, I normally start them in October if I am lucky, but never read them after January.
- The first book I would have to choose is Jenny Colgan’s, Christmas at Rosie Hopkins Sweet shop, doesn’t it sound great? this one actually follows on from Welcome to Rosie Hopkin’s sweet shop of dreams. You have to read this one first though as it is just brilliant. They are fun and festive and just a lovely lighthearted read about a girl owning a sweet shop. Do not read when you are hungry though as all the delicious sounding sweets will make you hungry.
2. Milly Johnson -The Mother of All Christmases, this is such a wonderful and feel good book, so much so it will get you wanting to crack open the mulled wine and hang up the tinsel. It is about three women who all have their own story and how they become friends at the Christmas Pudding Club and help each other. Such a lovely festive read.
3. Carole Matthews – The Chocolate Lovers Christmas and the first book in the series is The Chocolate Lovers Club, you have to read the chocolate lovers club before the Christmas book as you get to meet all the characters and get to know their stories. I loved these books so much, I am a big fan of chocolate so didn’t hesitate to dive right it. All relatable characters. It is a book that I will read time and time again. There is also the Chocolate Lover wedding and The chocolate lovers diet too.
3.Sarah Morgan- One more for Christmas, though I would recommend any of her Christmas books as they are all fabulous and festive reads. You can almost imagine you are there in the thick of it. The covers of these books are always festive and sparkly too. This story made me want to go out and play in the snow ( if we ever get any in the UK). I can never wait to dive straight in to a book by Sarah. There are heartwarming and uplifting reads.
4. Emily Harvale- A Christmas Hideaway, this is book one in the Hideaway Down Series, I have read them all and loved them. This is one that really makes me think of Christmas, and spending time with loved ones. Bring on the Christmas cheer. Once you have read this one, you certainly will want to read the other books in this series.
5.Heidi Swain- The Christmas Wish List is another festive winter warmer that will get you in the spirit of Christmas, Heidi has actually written quite a few Christmas books and some of them I have not read yet but will be adding to my Christmas list this year. A little romance at Christmas never hurt anyone.
