Happy Holidays! This Monday is definitely all about magic today since it’s held on my actual day off and it’s the beginning of the holiday season! WOOP WOOP!
Without further ado, here are my three magical reads for the week that have been filled with absolute magic and the joy of the holiday season!
1…The Afterlife of Holly Chase
The hype is real because this book is so addicting! This book is my book club’s choice for the month and I am literally not able to stop listening to this book! I have to say that the audiobook for The Afterlife of Holly Chase is LIFE! This story is very much a character-driven story which is my favorite kind of story to read! The audiobook narrator Erin Spencer perfectly captures the heart of the MC Holly Chase and I am absolutely in love with this story so far! The Afterlife of Holly Chase is essentially the Christmas Carol but with a twist! I am absolutely delighted with this book so far and I cannot wait to post about my final thoughts of this book!
2…The Christmas Company
Yet another story that I am currently reading that I haven’t finished yet! (This has been the recurring theme in my life since October of 2018!) I am now an official addict of all things Hallmark! I used to be more of a grinch during Christmas time and the magic of Hallmark movies brought that little holiday sparkle to my life!
I mean who can resist a gingerbread competition with Lacey Chabert?!
When I found out that Hallmark also has a Hallmark publishing company with cozy and romantic holiday stories I raced to my closest bookstore to see what Hallmark books are available. I have only read about 20 pages of this book but I can tell I am going to speed through this book in no time! I have seen great reviews about this Hallmark book on Goodreads and can’t wait to continue reading this book over some hot cocoa!
I have turned into such a cliche…
3…Let it Snow: Three Holiday Romances
Now this book got so many mixed reviews but at the time that I read this book, I honestly loved it. I actually loved it much more than the other holiday book My True Love Gave to Me! When I read the book Let it Snow, it gave me those cozy and magical holiday-feels with a quirky twist (Anything with John Green has a quirky twist!) and the stories just provided simple Hallmark-like entertainment! I know that John Green’s story had some controversy with his obsessive and problematic cheerleader-hate but besides that, I did enjoy the storyline and the quest for those cheesy hash browns from Waffle House! Sometimes we just need to enjoy stories for what they are and not take everything so seriously because these stories were freaking adorable!
