Merry Christmas Everyone: A Book Set at Christmas

my true love gave to me

My True Love Gave To Me by Various Authors

I still have not gotten to this book, even though I own it.*sighs* I want to read it soon though as I heard the stories are quite good.

O’ Christmas Tree, O’ Christmas Tree: A Book With Red and Green on the Cover

Paper Towns

Paper Towns by John Green

This is as close as I could get for a red and green colored book. I really enjoyed Paper Towns when I read it, because I liked the scavenger hunt style plot, but I don’t think it’s Green’s best novel.

Jingle Bells: A Song You Wish Was a Book

What Christmas Means to Me by Stevie Wonder. It would be a fun, uplifting YA novel about someone coming home for the holidays during a college break and spending time with their family.

Saviour’s Day: A Book With a Religious Protagonist

the-exorsistah

The Exorsistah #1 by Claudia Mair Burney

The main character at first (in this series) is not religious at first, but becomes religious over the course of events as a demon-huntress.

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: An Animal Companion

I couldn’t find anything for this category! 🙁

Baby It’s Cold Outside: A Book With A Cold/Wintery Setting

the quality of silence

Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton

This was such an entertaining thriller. I really enjoyed the pacing, character development, and action. The fact that the characters are stuck in the Artic in a blazing blizzard makes it all the more treacherous.

We Three Kings: A Character Who is Royal/ A Book Set at Court

the-star-touched-queen

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

A great YA debut fantasy novel that follows a girl named Maya who has a curse that surrounds her unfortunate horoscope. One day she becomes the queen of Akaran and realizes that there is more that what meets the eye in this new land.

Mary’s Boy Child: A Book With a Child Protagonist

julia and the art of practical travel

Julia and the Art of Practical Travel by Lesley M.M. Blume

A great middle grade novel that is also historical fiction. While it is a travel novel that takes readers across 1960s America through the main protagonist’s camera lens, it’s also about family as well.

Last Christmas: A Book That Broke Your Heart

exit, pursued by a bear

Exit, Persued By a Bear by E.K. Johnson

Exit, Persued By a Bear is a heartbreaking and raw story about a rape survivor. It was definitely hard to read, and at times it had me in tears. What I liked the most about this story it how it explored the contrasting reactions made by the main character and her peers.

Silent Night: A Book That Sent You to Sleep

the accident season

The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle

After several attempts at reading books with magical realism, I think I’m finally going to say that this genre is not my cup of tea. The story was not horrible, but the magical realism elements were a bit too “out there” for me.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas: A Book That Would Make A Great Christmas Movie

I Almost Forgot About You

I Almost Forgot About You by Terry McMillan

I could see this book as a romance holiday movie if the screenplay is done right. The book deals with the main protagonist’s soul-searching process. As she goes through her past relationships it allows her to be more open to new relationships. I think this would make a good movie!

All I Want For Christmas: A Book You Want for Christmas

iron-cast

Iron Cast by Destiny Soria

It’s a mixture of fantasy and historical fiction, so I’m definitely interested in this book!

  1. Yes, Yes, Yes! I got Iron Cast from the library and I’m so excited to read it, as I am with The Star-Touched Queen. Personally, I strongly disliked Paper Towns, but I’ve never been a fan of John Green, however, that’s a great green and red choice. A book for “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: An Animal Companion” Marley and Me maybe? Love the eclectic selections you have here.

      1. You’re welcome! I’ve never read the book, I think I saw the movie…but i might’ve just seen the end…I do that sometimes lol. Thank you, I’m excited about it 😀

  2. “Exit, Persued By a Bear is a heartbreaking and raw story about a rape survivor….”

    Wow I had no idea that this is a book about a rape survivor… judging from the cover, it looks like a YA high school drama story…

    I am dying to get my hands on Iron Cast too!
