Book Blogger Hop #1

This week I'm joining up with The Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.

This week's question: Do you ever do a review based on a holiday? 

Yes- I have found myself reading more seasonally of late, especially since becoming a blogger. But even before that- at Christmas time, for example, I often find myself reaching out for Christmas- y reads at the bookstore, or whatever.

Here are some Christmas reads that I've either read or have caught my eye.

The Nine Lives of Christmas

My thoughts.
Also a Hallmark movie, although I wasn't crazy about casting.


  1. Hallmark movies are definitely a mixed bag. Sometimes they're indulgently guilty-pleasurely great and other times not so much! Blogging has definitely made me read more seasonally and I did quite a bit at Christmas last year. I'd love to read more Halloween books this year.

  2. I do holiday themed posts on my Children's book blog, but not on my main blog. Last year everyone was bugging me to read a Christmas book, so I bought an ebook for 99 cents. It was something about a witch at Christmas, but I never ended up reading it. LOL. Maybe I will get to it this year if I can remember the title to find it in my Kindle library. Ha. :)

  3. I don't usually but last year I did Kimba's holiday read-a-thon and read and reviewed a bunch of Christmas stories. This year I did several patriotic reads for the Fourth of July but I was also trying to clear out some older titles. But typically the seasons and holidays don't affect me.
