Help Me Out!

Everybody, I have updated The Books page with the schedule for the next weeks to come. I really need some input for the final week, so can you please recommend any kind of Christmas romance that you enjoeyed? I already added some of the books from the Recommendations page to my TBR. You should really check this site out, too. So, what to read during the final week? Any ideas? Spill!


  1. I really enjoyed A Virgin River Christmas by Robyn Carr. It's perfect as a stand alone and great for the holiday season. Robyn Carr also has a sweet novella called "Under the Christmas Tree" in the anthology That Holiday Feeling. I haven't read the other stories in it but I'm sure they're wonderful too.

  2. I finally went through my books and wrote down the few Christmas stories I’ve read so far.

    - Santa Baby / Jennifer Crusie, Lori Foster and Carly Phillips
    - A Very Merry Christmas / Lori Foster, Gemmy Bruce and Janice Maynard
    - Kissing Santa Clause / Donna Kauffman, HelenKay Dimon and Jill Shalvis
    - A Christmas Ball / Jennifer Ashley, Emily Bryan and Alissa Johnson (haven’t read yet)

    To be honest I don’t remember most of the novellas but I think I liked Santa Baby best.
    I’ve stopped reading Christmas anthologies because they don’t satisfy me...mostly for the same reasons you mentioned below (rushed storylines, no chance to really get to know the characters).
    If you want I can lend you the books so you won’t have to spend money for your last Christmas-reads week.

    I’ve also read The Winter Lodge by Susan Wiggs and I liked it. I think the entire Lakeshore Chronicles are nice reads.
    And I can’t wait to read Lisa Kleypas’ Wallflower Christmas...I LOVED this series and can’t wait to read again about the characters. :)

  3. I'm participating in a Christmas Reading challenge too, and here are a few books from my list:

    The First Love Cookie Club by Lori Wilde (read this LOVED this!!)
    His Christmas Pleasure by Cathy Maxwell
    The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman
    Sweet Inspiration by Penny Watson
    Vampire for Christmas by Felicity Heaton

  4. I have to agree with A Virgin River Christmas. I read it last year and it was a sweet historical christmas book. If you enjoyed the Wallflowers series you will like the Christmas book. It wraps up the series and it was nice to see them all together.

    A steamier one was TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT by Donna Kauffman, Jill Shalvis and HelenKay Dimon
