Sharing is caring!
Every year, Christmas sneaks up a little bit faster. Sometimes, we need a boost getting into the Christmas spirit and some help slowing down to enjoy the holiday season. Christmas books can help this time of year!
While there are some great classic Christmas novels, like A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens about the infamous Ebenezer Scrooge, and, of course, lots of wonderful stories for kids, we instead focused this list of recommendations on contemporary books to read at Christmas for adults, including some romance novels, comedies, and even a few mysteries.
Grab some hot chocolate and find a quiet moment before bed to curl up by the Christmas tree and read one of the recommendations from our reading list below!
