Festive Books to Read this Holiday Season!

I love nothing more than snuggling up under a blanket, next to my Christmas tree and reading a festive book. I love reading and then recommending festive books and sharing the holiday cheer. So, I wanted to do just that! Here are some festive books that I’ve read, loved and want to share with you this holiday season!

Whiteout by Dhonielle Clayton, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nic Stone, Angie Thomas, Ashley Woodfolk and Nicola Yoon

As the city grinds to a halt, twelve teens band together to help a friend pull off the most epic apology of her life. But will they be able to make it happen, in spite of the storm?

No one is prepared for this whiteout. But then, we can’t always prepare for the magical moments that change everything.

I finished reading this one just a couple of days ago and adored it! Written by six best-selling YA authors this book is certain to not let you down. I adored the holiday backdrop and meeting all the different characters along the way. It is a fast-paced read perfect to start off your holiday reading! I cannot recommend it enough!


In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…but not for Maelyn Jones. She’s living with her parents, hates her going-nowhere job, and has just made a romantic error of epic proportions.

But perhaps worst of all, this is the last Christmas Mae will be at her favorite place in the world—the snowy Utah cabin where she and her family have spent every holiday since she was born, along with two other beloved families. Mentally melting down as she drives away from the cabin for the final time, Mae throws out what she thinks is a simple plea to the universe: Please. Show me what will make me happy.

The next thing she knows, tires screech and metal collides, everything goes black. But when Mae gasps awake…she’s on an airplane bound for Utah, where she begins the same holiday all over again. With one hilarious disaster after another sending her back to the plane, Mae must figure out how to break free of the strange time loop—and finally get her true love under the mistletoe.

This is one that I read last year and adored. The fact it is a time-loop story makes me love this one even more. It is fast-paced and doesn’t ever feel repetitive which can be an issue with some time-loop stories. I feel that you can certainly rely on Christina Lauren for a lovely romance book and this one also helps to put you in a festive mood!I


This Winter by Alice Oseman

I used to think that difficult was better than boring, but I know better now…

I’m not going to think about the past few months, about Charlie and me, and all of the sad. I’m going to block it all out. Just for today.

“Happy Christmas, ” I say.

The festive season isn’t always happy for Tori and her brother Charlie. And this year’s going to be harder than most.

This is a wonderful little novella based on characters from Alice Oseman’s novel Solitaire. It features beautiful illustrations, narration from Charlie Spring, Tori Spring and even Oliver Spring. Nick and Charlie feature in this one heavily too. It is so lovely to see the Spring family over Christmas, even when there is drama involved!


Stay Another Day by Juno Dawson

The McAllister house on Arboretum Road has seen 120 Christmases since its completion.

This year, FERN is bringing her gorgeous boyfriend home and she wants everything to be perfect.

But her twin brother ROWAN would rather go on the pull than pull crackers with the family.

And their younger sister WILLOW is terrified of Christmas Day.

With FOUR sleeps till Christmas,
THREE secretive siblings,
TWO hot houseguests,
And ONE juicy secret …
This Christmas, there will be some BIG surprises under the tree.

This is another one that I read last year and loved it. It covers some heavy topics throughout but still manages to feel festive and cosy. I loved how this one discusses a few Christmases in the McAllister family and has easy to follow storylines. Juno Dawson never lets me down in bringing me an amazing read and this holiday themed book is no different!

There you have it, some festive books to read this holiday season! What books would you recommend to read this holiday season? Let me know in the comments below!
