A Literary Christmas Challenge 2018


You probably remember me participating in this challenge for the last two years.  It's so fun, I'm doing it again this year!  Basically, you sign up at In the Bookcase, you pick some festive books to read and review, and then you link your reviews back at In the Bookcase.   You can check out other people's reviews too, maybe get ideas for Christmasy books you want to read, maybe make a new blogging friend, etc!


This year, Tarissa is also hosting a giveaway in conjunction with the challenge.  Details on that are here.  It only runs through the end of this week, just so you know!

Me?  I'm aiming to read both of these:

(From my Bookstagramming adventures)

Those are Old West Christmas Brides by six different authors and Holiday Grind by Cleo Coyle, for the record ;-)  Also, my daughter decided I needed to have her favorite penguin in the picture because she's obsessed with penguins.

    1. Glad you think so, Tarissa! Thanks for hosting it again -- it's so delightful!

      BTW, the giveaway widget wasn't working at all this afternoon. Just so you know. I'll try it again tomorrow and see if it's fixed.

  2. Those do look like some good choices. In fact I actually read Holiday Grind a couple of years ago. As I recall it was really good. Lots of coffee involved, so who can complain about that???

    1. Thanks, Mom! I actually picked up the brides book at the B&N we stopped at when we visited you :-) I haven't read any of these Coffeehouse Mystery books by Coyle before, but I remembered you mentioned them once, and I found this at the library book sale and figured it was work 50 cents, right?

  3. Such a jolly challenge! I had also planned to read something Christmassy in December and my picks were The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Little Women. But I already read and loved The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, so perhaps I should add another title to my Christmas tbr list.

    I had never heard of the books you've picked, so I'm looking forward to your thoughts on them.

    1. Irene, it IS a jolly challenge! I hope you join in :-)

      I really don't know much about either of these books except they looked interesting enough that I bought them :-)
