Christmas is coming and your going to be wanting to read those good books. But when your cold, you want to get in the Christmas mood, unless you are sick. Last year, we left school after 1 hour of school because it started to snow. The book I happened to be reading was Bewoulf so it wasn’t that Christmas-y. Here is 3 books you should read this Christmas season.
1.Let It Snow by: John Green. Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle
I read Let It Snow last year and it was amazing. I got the book last year for Christmas because many of my friends were reading the book and saying it was amazing. I kept waiting to read it so when I got it, I loved it. The book really doesn’t have that much of a Christmas feel to it but it is really good. The format of these three authors is amazing, like how they combined all of their books into one and how the decided to end the book. If you are looking for a Christmas book that isn’t a Christmas book, this would be perfect for you.
Summary: Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks.
2. A Charlie Brown Christmas by: Charles M. Schulz
This book I had to put up there this year. This is the 50th anniversary of the first time it aired on TV. We even celebrated this anniversary at our band concert, playing a arrangement of three of the songs, Lucy and Linus, Christmas Time Is Here, AND Oh Tannenbaum. It was really good. Of course I wasn’t here years ago but I still really love Charlie Brown. He’s one of those characters that you will never un-live. If you have never seen one version of Charlie Brown, what have you been doing with your life!?!?
Summary: It’s Christmas! Everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit — except for Charlie Brown. It seems like everybody has forgotten what Christmas is truly about. But Lucy, Linus, and the whole Peanuts gang have some holiday surprises that will make even Charlie Brown feel merry!
3. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories by: Stephanie Perkins and Friends
Like Let It Snow, I read this book last year, I actually think it was the day after Christmas. I really enjoyed this one. I thought that they created this very fulfilling book, even with 12 authors. Each of the authors had their own story that made it their own and it flowed amazingly. Some of the stories are better than others but overall it was amazing. This one had more of a Christmas mood than Let It Snow but they were really close to being the same book.
Summary: If you love holiday stories, holiday movies, made-for-TV-holiday specials, holiday episodes of your favorite sitcoms and, especially, if you love holiday anthologies, you’re going to fall in love with My True Love Gave To Me: Twelve Holiday Stories by twelve bestselling young adult writers, edited by international bestselling author Stephanie Perkins. Whether you enjoy celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah, Winter Solstice or New Year’s there’s something here for everyone. So curl up by the fireplace and get cozy. You have twelve reasons this season to stay indoors and fall in love.
Here you guys go! Merry Christmas guys! Don’t worry, I’ll be posting a little more because I’m off school and I’ll actually have the time to do so.
