Tis the season for holiday reading
Deciding on a holiday novel for your seasonal book club can be a daunting task. There are truly not that many holiday full length stories to choose from. You can find a gazillion books for children and even Hallmark type romance novels (nothing wrong with romance but more substance is appreciated) but nothing that seems to meet a reading groups criteria.
Before we begin below are several tips to consider when looking for that one perfect merry read for your book club!
Tips: The novel should be short enough to complete around the very busy holiday season
It must not be and I repeat must not be a depressing novel!
Children's books that are over 150 pages and young adult novels are on the table and we do not shy away from them as they have some of the best holiday themes
The novel has to have at least one holiday book scene
Preferably a book that is not an anthology or only tales (but open to this idea)
