Over the last few weeks there's been lots of Christmassy reads published, and it's now getting closer to the height of the festive season. So if you want festive reading material, I thought that today I'd round up a few Christmas books that are out and ready for your reading!
- ...And A Happy New Year? By Holly Bourne. This is the novella that concludes the Spinster Club series from Holly, featuring the stories of Lottie, Amber and Evie. The rest of the series is great, by the way, but this book is themed around all the girls meeting up for New Year's for the first time since they left college. It's a really good read, and whilst it might not make too much sense if you haven't read at least one of the other books in the series, perhaps this book will give you the excuse to go and buy the others in this series!
- I'll Be Home For Christmas. This is a collection of short stories published by Stripes featuring authors like Juno Dawson, Katy Cannon, Non Pratt, Lisa Williamson, Holly Bourne and many more, along with Tracy Darnton who won Stripes' YA Short Story Prize earlier this year. Plus, the book is being sold in aid of Crisis, a charity in the UK which helps the homeless, so you get a good book and also support charity too!
- A Boy Called Christmas AND The Girl Who Saved Christmas by Matt Haig. Matt Haig is a phenomenal writer, and this year he has two kids books out for Christmas, both taking a focus on 'impossible things.' There are plenty of good things being said about these two at the moment, so again they're more books that are definitely worth your time!
Those are just some of the Christmas reads available to choose from this year. In terms of books in general, this year has been very good anyway for publications, so if you need books, there is no shortage of fantastic ones available.
