This is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic is Top Ten Books that get you in the Holiday Mood. This isn't really going to be a list this time, but I'm still going to make the attempt.
Okay, so for novels my "top ten" is pretty short.
1. Harry Potter- I fully realize that this series is more a Halloween thing, but Harry Potter has always been a Chirstmas thing in my family. I got the books one by one (or something like that) from under the christmas tree in Elementary school. I started reading the first book on Chirstmas. That is how the legacy was born.
2. Kringle by Tony Abbott- This is a book about how Santa came to be only with a fantasy twist. It's not YA but it's so christmasy I loved it.
That was it for novels but I have a few children's books.
3. Santa Clause- this is kind of like a fake history book about santa and how he gets his job done. It's very cute and celver. I like to go through it around christmas time.
4. The puppy who wanted a boy- I loved this one when I was little. It's amazing as so heart-warming. If you haven't read this you really should; it will make you cry. If you have a child go to the library right now so that you can read it to them.
I've never read to get in the mood for the holidays. It's always been movies, and those christmas specials that have gotten me to pul out the construction paper and make the countdown chain. My favorite christmas movie is hands down The Polar Express. It's amazing.
You'd think after watching those christmas specials a million times I'd be tried of them, but I can't help it. They are amazing. Tell me what your favorite is. My favorite is Jack Frost, it's so sad, and Jack Frost is always the bad guy for some reason, but what is so evil about makeing icicles?
Those movies that are on Family and Halmark that are for Christmas. I LOVE those. Half of them I make fun of but the other half are really neat and have interesting ideas.
Will this post has gotten me in the mood to watch one of those so MERRY CHRISTMAS!
