My picks for A Literary Christmas! + #GIVEAWAY!

Dear Readers,

It's time! Let the holiday reading begin!
[Make sure to read all the way to the bottom! HINT = GIVEAWAY!!!!!]

Here's a quick re-cap about A Literary Christmas:

What's this holiday reading challenge about? ::: Whether you just want to read 1 amazingly-good Christmas book, or 10, you make your own list of titles to read, and finish as many of them as you can.

Where will it take place? ::: In your favorite cozy reading nook. Whether it be while wrapped in fleece blankets in bed... sitting by the fireside drinking hot chocolate... or maybe on the sunny beach!

When will it take place? ::: November 1st - December 31st.
(but my special giveaways ends on December 2nd, by the way, so that the blessed winner can receive their prize in time for Christmas!)

If you haven't yet, catch up on how to participate in A Literary Christmas.

(As soon as you start posting about the challenge on your blog, Instagram, Goodreads (or other social media) please start linking up your posts at the bottom of this page. I'm excited to see the books you're reading!)

    The book ornament!!! *dies* :X
    It's SO CUTE!!!!

  3. That ornament is SO cute. I read The Bridge a few years ago, but I'd have to go back to see if I reviewed it to remember what it was about (one reason I review). I think Melody Carlson is the queen of Christmas books. I don't think I have seen that one.I will look it up.

    1. Barbara,
      I watched the movie for The Bridge on Hallmark Channel earlier this year... and now I'm ready to tackle the book.

      Oh! And if you can read "Christmas by the Sea", it's Melody Carlson's BRAND NEW holiday book for 2018!! I'm excited for it.

  4. That ornament is adorable! I don't read many Christmas books, but I'll have to pay attention, and if I end up reading any this year, I'll sign up for this. :-)
