Christmas Reading Challenge: my picks and Mr. Linky for reviews

Update:  Two completed for the challenge and removing one from the list (The Christmas Sweater) for personal reasons!

Notice:  Mr. Linky is fixed...for now! If it disappears again, please post your review links in the comments.  Thanks!

So, I announced this challenge some time ago and while everyone else has signed up, I have been dragging my feet on which books I was going to have in my stack for the challenge.  I'm going to pick more than three books just because of the fact that there is the Thankfully Reading Challenge this weekend, another 24 hour Read-a-Thon on December 5th and the Christmas break challenge--a book a day--starting around the middle of the month.  I should be able to get some good reading done!

Here are my picks:
  • The Christmas List by Richard Paul Evans
  • An Irish Country Christmas by Patrick Taylor
  • Matchless by Gregory Maguire
  • A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
I have a ton of other Christmas books in my personal library so I will probably add more, but this is my tentative list.

Here is the Mr. Linky for posting your reviews for the challenge.  You do not have to post a review if you don't want to, but I think it will make for a more festive challenge if we review and know, spread the Christmas Cheer!!!

Happy Reading!


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I am so excited for Frank Beddor and your giveaway!!!


  2. I am having troubles finding Mr. Linky . . . I don't see him anywhere and I have reviews to post!

  3. I think it's a blogspot problem as Mr. Linky has disappeared from my blog as well.

    I have to add that I love your blog music selection. You and I have the exact same taste in music!

  4. FYI- I totally stole your background from your challenge blog. I just needed something dark!

  5. Since Mr. Linky went bye-bye I thought I should put my linke to Murder Never Takes a HOliday

  6. My review of Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris:

    The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber:

  7. My review of The Christmas Box:
