With the Frog Blog Christmas Reunion last week, I'm afraid I didn't announce who won the Book Lover's Holiday hop last week.
The winner of the Book Lover's Basket is: *drum roll*
Congratulations! I will be contacting you for a snail mail address for your prize package.
I have been reading Christmas stories these past two weeks like The Candy Cane Queen by Janice Sperry, (so cute and fun! Really a great read.) Bah Humbug by Heather Horrocks, (loved the premise of this one, even if the ending might be a little too happy. But hey, it's Christmas, right?) The Christmas Sisters by Annie Jones, It Really Is a Wonderful Life by Linda Rondeau, Mistletoe Mischief by Stacy Netzel (good story, but a shade on the steamy side), and How Will Christmas Find Us? by various authors. (I loved this one because I got to be part of the compilation.)
I made a goal to read 112 books this year and I'm short of my goal so I've been reading like crazy. Most of these were freebies on Kindle so I downloaded them and I can only really recommend The Candy Cane Queen, Bah Humbug, and How Will Christmas Find Us?. The rest were, well, not my Christmas wish for a Christmas story. One of them actually was so redundant I had to check and see if I was reading the same chapter again because the characters just kept saying the same things over and over. I love Christmas stories, but I still want to be entertained, do you know what I mean?
So I'm still on my quest for good Christmas stories to read. I have Kerry Blair's new book, For God So Loved the One, on my to-read list and I'm looking forward to that.
Have you found any new favorites on your Christmas reading list this year? Any good recommendations for me?
