Wrap Up: The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge

November 21, 2011 - January 6, 2012

I greatly enjoyed participating in this wonderful reading challenge!  I'm so glad I found out about it, too, before I ran out of time in which to join in.   I jumped on it as soon as I came across it, because Christmas is my very favorite time of year!  When Thanksgiving rolls around, 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...

I chose to participate at the Mistletoe level, which meant I had to read from 2 to 4 books.  All of the books I ended up selecting were Christmas romances, of course!

Here are the books I read:

Mistletoe Level

Kaitlin O'Riley

Mary Balogh, Sandra Heath,
Emily Hendrickson, Emma Lange,
Sheila Walsh

Kristin Hannah

Mary Balogh

Fa La La La Film Level

I also watched one Christmas movie.
This one is based on a
Debbie Macomber novel of
the same name.

James Van Der Beek, Doris Roberts,
Erin Karpluk

Many thanks to Michelle at
