A Reader Recommends - Christmas

Another A Reader Recommends here!  This time around, I decided to do things slightly differently and just simply recommend some of my favourite Christmas books, as well as a few of my movie favourites, to get you in the spirit of Christmas.  Hope you enjoy!


Books: 

Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle - Three Christmasy tales all intertwine on a very magical Christmas eve.  A great book to read in the run up to christmas and to curl up with this December.   


Frostfire by Amanda Hocking - A wintery fantasy following a young girl as she attempts to work her way into the Royal guard, but things take a turn as a criminal begins to kidnap changelings.  I love fantasy around this time of year anyway, but this is just the perfect one to pick up.  


My True Love Gave to Me by Various Authors - A collection of short stories perfect for the run up to Christmas.  Not only are they Christmasy anyway, but these twelve reads are quick and easily devoured in one sitting.  




If I Stay by Gayle Forman - A more emotional read, but one that is still a perfect read for the winter.  It's a quick yet moving read if you want something a little different from your average contemporary Christmas read.  


Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn - The cute story about two teenagers in New York who begin to communicate through a small red notebook over the Christmas holidays.  Another quick read that transports you into the magic of New York at this time of year and into the lives of Dash and Lily.

Movies/ TV Shows:



Elf - The perfectly funny christmas film that will entertain everyone.  
Home Alone - A older classic that still fits perfectly into the run up to christmas.  
Nativity - A more recent film, but one that will never fail to make you laugh.
