I greatly enjoyed participating in this wonderful reading challenge again for the second time!  Christmas is my very favorite time of year!  Right after Thanksgiving, I love to start reading Christmas-themed romance novels and/or short stories.  I think that romance and the Christmas season go together perfectly.  Of course, I also enjoy reading other types of Christmas-themed books, like books about Christmas decorating, and Advent devotionals.  However, I do prefer to read Christmas romances.  They give me that warm, cozy feeling...

This year, I was able to participate at the Christmas Tree level, which means I read 5 books!  All of the books I ended up selecting were Christmas romances, of course.



These are the books I read.
You can access my reviews
