Hello and welcome to my round up of the Christmas books I managed to read for this years #HoHoHoRAT hosted by Kimbacaffenaite.

Snowman waving his hat. HohohoRAT readathon

This years readathon was a lot more successful than last years as I didn't manage to read a single Christmas book for the last one! So I have increased my average by 200% not bad really!! Carry on reading to find out which books I read and click on the links to find my reviews.

Cover of Strictly Christmas Spirit by Helen Buckley

This was a lovely festive tale of hope, goodwill and happiness. It was a lovely feel good story that fully got me in the festive mood.

Front cover of Midnight in Everwood

I loved this book, such a charming, magical and enchanting story. The descriptions of Everwood was just amazing, I felt like I could see,, smell and taste everything there. I would love to visit a land where everything was so decadent!

Front cover of A boy called Christmas by Matt Haig

What a lovely children's tale about the origin of Father Christmas! It had fun, humour, hope, joy, elves, reindeer and lovely illustrations. I recommend it to any children who love Christmas and want to know more about Father Christmas!

Front cover of Christmas at Carlys Cupcakes by Jessica Redland

After reading my first Jessica Readman book 'Christmas Wishes at the Chocolate Shop' I absolutely fell in love with her writing style and the characters on Castle street so I couldn't wait to read another in the series about the traders on that street! This was such a lovely story, full of warmth, hope and of course cupcakes!! It made me hungry just reading it!

These were some great Christmas reads and they have really got me in the Christmas spirit! Did you join the HoHoHoRAT? What are your favourite Christmas books this year? Please recommend any in the comments as I just love reading Christmas books. I may have to read them all year round next year there are so many to choose from!!
