Christmas Books to Read

My pile of books to read seems to multiply by the hour! I wanted to share a few of the books on my list that I'm just starting.

Marian's Christmas Wish by Carla Kelly

Miss Marian Wynswich is a rather unconventional young lady. She plays chess, reads Greek, and is as educated as any young man. And she's certain falling in love is a ridiculous endeavor and vows never to do such a thing. But everything changes when she receives a Christmas visit from someone unexpected--- a young and handsome English lord.

If you're looking for a sweet Christmas romance, this book fits the bill. I'm only a couple chapters in, but I like the characters and the premise. Carla Kelly is a talented writer with quite a list of books to her name.


The Wise Man Returns by Kenny Kemp

Many years after the sign of the star, Melchior, one of the three wise men, returns to Judea to receive counsel from the King of the Jews. Unexpectedly finding him in the countryside teaching rather than ruling on the throne, Melchior searches for answers and finds healing in the process. A historical fiction that address contemporary concerns, this book is a balm for the wounded soul.

I've read some of Kenny Kemp's works and his writing pulls you into the stories with a unique voice and style. This promises to be a great holiday read.

I've also enjoyed reading tons of children's Christmas books with my kids. Here are a few of our favorites

What are you reading this Christmas?
