Recommend Me Books – Winter Holiday Reads

Posted November 26, 2017 by Geybie in Recommend Me / 22 Comments

Recommend Me Books Winter Holiday Reads

We are back again with the new Recommend Me Books feature. I am currently in the mood for winter holiday reads since we are nearing Christmas. It doesn’t have to be necessarily Christmas reads but any books (any genres and sub-genres) you think perfect for a winter holiday season will be very appreciated. The sad fact is I am actually in need for recommendations since I haven’t read many of winter holiday books yet and the ones I have read so far weren’t on my favorite list so I cannot put them in this list.

Don’t forget to check out these previous recommendations as well and, please, recommend me your favorites if you haven’t yet. I’m looking forward to it.

Now, back to our theme. I’m SUPER curious.

What are your favorite winter holiday books?

Lexxie of (Un)Conventional Bookviews: Nice theme for this week’s recommendations, Geybie! I do have some wintery books to recommend to you. 😉

There are more, but I can’t for the life of me remember who wrote them! There is a romance series with either brothers or cousins, and they work at a ski resort… I thought it was Jill Shalvis, but I can’t really find them on my Goodreads shelf. Plus, it’s not as if I haven’t given you a humongous list this week. 😀

    I love the Kleypas books, Linda Lael Miller has some great holiday romances, The Christmas Cowboy Hero was a 5 star read for me, and Shalvis is amazing. Great group of books here!

    • Thank you, Carole. I’ll add them to the post. Oh, I’m curious about The Christmas Cowboy Hero. Have heard great things about it. Thanks for sharing. 😁❤️

  5. I read and loved all the Shalvis ( I don’t remember if I saw one of her older books, All He Wants for Christmas) and Gravity books, and I apparently don’t read a lot of holiday books.

    • I’m planning to read her books. She’s been recommended to me many times. So curious. Thank you so much for sharing. 😁❤️❤️❤️

  6. I need to add some YA input here! Not necessarily holiday themed reads… But still wintery. 🙂

    Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
    Prisoner of Ice and Snow – Ruth Lauren
    Let it Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson

    and some older ones:

    The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe
    And Little Women always comes to mind for wintry reads… 🙂

  7. Hi Geybie, fun list! Thanks for the recommendations. I recently finished Christmas at Conwenna Cove by Darcie Boleyn and I totally recommend it if you like cozy contemporary holiday romance. 🙂 Happy weekend xo
