6.12.16 | Christmas Book Recommendations

Hey guys!

Another recommendations post here for you today, and this time it’s on Christmas themed books.

First is Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle.

The three authors wrote a different point of view each of a different person, from memory I think there was a girl who was home alone without her parents and had to get on a train to go to her grandparents, a girl who’d been recently broken up with and a guy with his three friends who get stuck in the snow on their way to a waffle house. So each character has its own section in the book and once their section is done it moves onto the next one. It’s really cute and at the end it all ties together beautifully. It’s also really cool to see different styles of writing from different authors in the same book. Definitely a must read!

Next is an absolute classic, How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Doctor Seuss.

I know I put this in my movie recommendations but let’s be honest, the book is always better isn’t it? This was one of my favourites as a child and I think it still is for some children. I actually still enjoy reading it now, even though its for kids.

Another classic, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

There have been so many remakes of this in Disney movies, books, etc. but I think the original is definitely the best. Everyone knows this story – Scrooge, the ghosts, past, present, future – but if you haven’t read the original book then I strongly encourage you to do so.

Lastly is the Nutcracker by  E. T. A. Hoffmann.

Again, lots of remakes in ballets, movies and books but the original is super good. Of course I first found out about this because of the Barbie movie but when I found the original and read it I was so pleased by what I found. Definitely a good one if you like old books.
