Sorry, I didn’t post on days 16 and 17 of Blogmas but I have been poorly and just needed a chance to recharge my batteries. Today, I thought I would share a few Christmassy books that I would like to read while I am off work.
I am a big fan of chick-lit. My favourite authors in this genre are Cecelia Ahern and Emily Giffin. I have nearly finished After You by JoJo Moyes and am tempted to see what else she has written in the New Year.
- Christmas at the Cornish Cafe by Philippa Ashley
I read The Beach Cafe by Lucy Diamond in 2012 and I think this will probably be quite similar. I like easy reads to unwind to in the evening so I don’t have to remember specific details in the plot. I don’t like too much ‘romance’ like 50 Shades of Grey or for it to be too dark. I think this is the second part of a trilogy but I’m sure I won’t feel as though I am missing out by starting with this festive instalment.
- Lizzie’s Christmas Escape by Christie Barlow
From reading the synopsis of Amazon, this seems like a Christmas equivalent of Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. That is one of my favourite novels and I am hoping this story will be nearly as good. I haven’t read anything by Christie Barlow before but it is quite popular in the Kindle store with 5 star reviews.
- I Heart Christmas by Lindsay Kelk
I have seen so many books by Lindsay that I have wanted to read but not had the chance so I thought I would try this one first. Again, I think I have somehow managed to pick another book that is part of a series and it is one of the later ones but to be honest with you, even though I probably would prefer to read things in order, I find that if I haven’t it is like a TV series where enough of the gaps are filled in to make the plot understandable.
What are you reading at the moment and are there any Christmas chick-lit novels you would recommend? Bx
