10 Holiday Books to Add to Your TBR

Fa la la la la, it’s my favorite time of year! Now that Thanksgiving has passed and we’ve put up our Christmas tree, I’m officially ready for the holidays. I love reading seasonally and I’ve really been looking forward to the holiday books on my TBR this month.

Today I thought I’d share my holiday book picks in case you’re looking for a holiday read this month as well! The list below has a mix of books I’ve read during previous holiday seasons and some that are currently on my TBR.

  • The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss- This was such a delightful read. I loved the premise so much and I couldn’t get enough of the setting in the cozy English village of Blexford.
  • Royal Holiday by Jasmine Guillory- Jasmine Guillory can do no wrong in my book, so I was absolutely thrilled when she decided to write a book set in London during Christmastime. It’s a sweet romance between an older couple and I loved that it tied into the royal family as well.
  • One Day in December by Josie Silver- I found this story about missed opportunities and second chances at love very engrossing. And this one is set in London as well (I’m sensing a theme here!)
  • The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street by Karina Yan Glaser- I don’t read much middle grade, but this has to be one of the sweetest books I’ve ever read. I was absolutely charmed by the Vanderbeekers and loved reading about the tight-knit community they were a part of.
  • All I Want For Christmas by Wendy Loggia- This was a sweet YA holiday romance and I loved the main character. She works in a bookstore and she’s a Christmas fanatic, so she’s a girl after my own heart!
  • The Holiday Switch by Tif Marcelo- This YA romance sounds so cute! The main character is a book blogger (love!) and it’s set in the small and extremely festive fictional town of Holly, New York.
  • Meet Me in London by Georgia Toffolo- This is set in London and involves fake dating. That’s pretty much all I need to know- I’m sold!
  • The Holiday Swap by Maggie Knox- I first heard about this book through And Her Books podcast and I was so intrigued. It sounds like a mix between The Great British Baking Show and The Princess Switch movie series and I am here for it!
  • A Holly Jolly Diwali by Sonya Lalli- I like how this book focuses on multiple holidays (Diwali and Christmas). Also, I think it takes place in a few different location, so it sounds like a fun, jet setting holiday read.
  • A Season for Second Chances– This is by the same author who wrote The Twelve Dates of Christmas, which I loved (see above!), so I immediately added it to my TBR.

Have you read any of these or any of them on your TBR?
