Sunday Salon : Christmas Suggestions?

The Sunday Salon.comHey readers and bloggers!

How was your week? I noticed there were a few bloggers catching up on reading this week by having their own little read-a-thon; I know I was one of those! I had such a great time reading, even though it was a little hard at first to relax and embrace the moment. You can read my recap here.

Read this Week :

  • The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams
  • Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey
  • Bogus to Bubbly by Scott Westerfeld
  • Jinx by Meg Cabot
  • Glass Houses by Rachel Caine

Reviewed this Week :

So, very good for the TBR pile, not so much for the “to be reviewed” pile! Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up on that this week. I’m also starting to catch up with that blogging thing, leaving comments and all. 🙂

Apart from reading this week, I also shared my reading and blogging plans for 2010. I know it’s a little soon, but it’s still only a month and a half away and I like to think in advance!

Today, I’ll be reading Wintergirls and studying. The book is intense but I like it so far, and I think I’ll get through it today.

Now, I want to finish with a request! Every year, I try to read a few Christmas Books during the Holiday season. Last year, I read A Christmas Carol by Dickens; the year before, I read The autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guinn. I love it and it really puts me into the Christmas spirit! It doesn’t have to be a straight out Christmas novel, it can be simply a story that happens during the holidays, too. So, I guess what I want to ask is, do you have any suggestions?

    You had a great reading week! I think I need to do a little read-a-thon. I just bought Wishin’ and Hopin’ by Wally Lamb, but I can’t recommend it because I haven’t read it yet.

    I’m afraid I’m no help…the last Christmas book I read was The Autobiography of S.C.

    Like you, I’m behind on reviews. I think the bloggiesta needs to follow the read-a-thon, so we can all get caught up!

    Have you read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn? It’s not completely about Christmas, but there’s a Christmas section,a nd for some reason the book is tied to the holiday season in my mind…

  5. Fyrefly says :

    I read Let it Snow by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle last year, and it was funny and sweet and thoroughly heartwarming and just generally awesome. Or, if you want your Christmas with extra zombies, there’s always The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore. 🙂

  6. Bella says :

    Christmas books are fun for getting into the winter spirit. One of my favorites is Skipping Christmas by John Grisham.

    What about A Christmas Story by Jean Shepherd? Also, Augusten Burroughs has a new one out called You’d better not cry.

  8. jasonpgignac says :

    I second Amanda – The Christmas part of Tree Grows in Brooklyn is wonderful. Otherwise, I always read the Little Match Seller at Christmas, but I don’t know if that counts… :/.

  9. alitareads says :

    I read The Autobiography of Santa Claus last year and thought it was such a fun Christmas read.

    This year I have A Christmas Carol on deck, but also Ex-Mas by Kate Brian.

    Oh, if you like “A Christmas Story” you’ll love the book by the same name by Jean Shepherd. It is laugh out loud funny and goes a lot more into characters than the movie. A definite classic.
