Tis the Season for Holiday Reading

Every year I read a few winter themed books to get into the holiday spirit. I haven’t had a chance to peruse many of the new holiday titles out this year, so putting this list together helped me to see what’s available. These are ten holiday romances I have my eye on:

Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan – Another book by the author of Ripped, Sleigh Bells is a full-length novel about a workaholic who wants to work to avoid Christmas. But, she falls for a guy who makes her feel the magic again.

Frigid by J. Lynn – I don’t know how Christmassy this New Adult book is, though it is set in winter at a ski resort. Syd and Kyler are trapped in a snowstorm, and someone is stalking them! $2.99 for kindle

Snow-Kissed by Laura Florand – A winter novella with a side of angst. It’s about a husband and wife that reconnect at a mountain cabin after their breakup. $2.99 for kindle

Ripped by Sarah Morgan – I’ve heard really good things about this hot and humorous novella about a holiday fling.

The Christmas He Loved Her by Juliana Stone – This is book two of the Bad Boys of Crystal Lake series, a book I haven’t read. BUT, I hear this works as a standalone. It sounds like a sad book, about love and loss, and the reviews are quite good.

All I’m Asking For anthology -This collection of holiday novellas includes Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth, Season of Second Chances by Brighton Walsh, and Mine Under the Mistletoe by Kat Latham.

Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis – The first book in the Lucky Harbor series- I know a lot of bloggers rave about this book. Sounds like a cute read. $2.99 for kindle

All I Want by Jolene Perry, Kaylee Baldwin, and Rachael Anderson – Three cute holiday novellas in the “clean romance” category. $3.99 for kindle

If I Return by Sawyer Bennett – This story is one of the books in the 12 NA’s of Christmas novellas. It’s about a bookish college student who goes with her sister to the mountains for Christmas, where she falls for an Army helicopter pilot. $0.99 for kindle

Heating up the Holidays anthology – Includes Play With Me by Lisa Renee Jones, Snowfall by Mary Ann Rivers, and After Midnight by Serena Bell. I’m a fan of Jones and Rivers writing, so I’m eager to check this out. $0.99 for kindle

Do you have any holiday romance recommendations for me? I haven’t read too many so I’d love to know what I’m missing out on! I’ll put together a YA list in the next week or so.

Happy holiday reading!

    I am totally stocking up on holiday romances right now. My favorite one I can think of though is A Wallflower Christmas by Lisa Kleypas. It’s actually a novella that is part of a bigger series but I read it without ever having read the series (I have since read it though and it’s AWESOME). But I like this novella because it’s really emotional and feels like a full story. Highly recommended.

      I’ll definitely look for A Wallflower Christmas! Thanks for the tip 🙂 Will keep an eye on your blog for holiday romance recs!

    Well I don’t know if it’s any good but one I’m looking forward to reading is Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan! You wouldn’t have to have read the first one (which was ace!) I don’t think.

      That title sounds adorable. Thanks for the rec! And I like the book cover too- it’s not as embarrassing as some of these 🙂

        No, it’s definitely not a cover you’d have to hide behind something more highbrow if reading in public! 🙂

  3. I have a few on my list that I hope to get too. Many that you have on your list!

      Oh nice! Let me know if you start any of these if you want to read along.

  4. I loved Ripped. You should give this one a try, plus Simply Irresistible is pretty amazing too.

    I’ve read Frigid and Simply Irrestible. I liked them both, although neither are favorites. I’m thinking I need to read some holiday-themed books to get me in the holiday spirit.

  6. […] I looked at holiday romance books to cuddle up with this winter, and now I’m checking out the YA offerings. It is much easier […]
