Holiday Books Special | Read with Tracie Marie Please

For a special holiday edition of Read with Tracie Marie Please, I’m sharing my favorite books to pick up around this time of year. So grab that cup of hot cocoa, take a seat in a chair by the fireplace, and start reading one of my favorite holiday reads…

Kiss Me in New York by Catherine Rider

4 out of 5 stars

A super sweet quick holiday read – set in New York City on Christmas Eve!

Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa de la Cruz

2 out of 5 stars

Okay this book was lame and I expected much more from such an accomplished author like Melissa de la Cruz. This book was awfully written and so predictable I could have written a better version myself. Skip this one unless someone you know deserves coal in their stocking.

My New Crush Gave to Me by Shani Petroff

5 out of 5 stars

This was everything I want in a holiday book: Secret Santas, festive fun, and high school romance. Such a cute and easy read!

Last Christmas in Paris: A Novel of World War I by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb

5 out of 5 stars

Told almost entirely in letters sent back and forth between the characters, this book gave me all the feels. Although it is not an entirely “Christmas book”, it deals with dreams of Christmas in Paris during WWI. I honestly did not expect to like it as much as I did, and I was touched by the characters wartime romance.

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories by Stephanie Perkins (Editor)

4 out of 5 Stars

Your favorite YA authors came together to make a collection of 12 magical holiday stories that range from the whimsical to the romantic.

Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle

5 out of 5 stars

Three heartfelt holiday stories that are interwoven into some real Christmas magic. Let it snow? More like let it swoon.

What Light by Jay Asher

5 out of 5 stars

The infamous author of Thirteen Reasons Why creates a lovely but difficult holiday romance set on a Christmas tree farm.

The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand

3.91 stars on Goodreads

I haven’t read this one yet – but I hear rave reviews! This story is a retelling of a Christmas Carol that is all about second chances.

The Mistletoe Murder: and Other Stories by P.D. James

3.8 stars on Goodreads

A Christmas-themed murder mystery that is up next on my to-read list.

Murder for Christmas by Francis Duncan

3.56 stars on Goodreads

I picked up this book back at my Books & Co. in Ohio mainly because I loved the cover, but I am always down for a good murder mystery. Especially if it involves some mulled wine and Father Christmas.

As always, checkout what I’m currently reading on Goodreads.
