Stories With Christmas Settings
OK…..I must admit that I have “imposter syndrome”!
Yes, I have read a few Christmas-themed books, but other book review bloggers have read many more. For example, Carla @ Carla Love to Read is the queen of Christmas reads! Today, I’m sharing a few stories with Christmas settings that I have on my bookshelves. Do you enjoy stories with Christmas settings?

Stories With Christmas Settings
(In order of publication date)
New Releases This Year:
Set inside an outdoor Christmas Mart, this delightful romance features magical realism.
Christmas is the backdrop for this” reinventing your life” trope.
Romance + Family with a side of PTSD.
“Grouchy meets Sunshine” trope with a side of castle restoration just in time for Christmas
This sweet young adult romance is set in Christmas, Virginia.
Characters are caught in a time loop in this family drama/romance.
A delightful and cozy novella introducing the Thornthwaite Sisters Series. (family centered, easy and light reading, closed-door romance, no profanity or graphic content).
I’m including this because I include a Backman title in almost every list I create! A poignant and thought provoking fairy tale for adults, this (somewhat sad) short story is set during the Christmas season (in which Christmas is a simple backdrop).
I’m including this because it’s one of my favorite stories (WW1), and because the title is interesting in that “Christmas in Paris” is something that is dreamed for and hoped for in the story. It was a common thought that the war would be over by Christmas, so the young adults who went off to war planned to celebrate Christmas in Paris. The story’s poignant ending does take place in Paris at Christmas but in a much different way than our main characters imagined.
If you haven’t read the book, you’ve probably seen the movie, Christmas With the Kranks.
Do you have a favorite story with a Christmas setting on your bookshelf?

“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.” ~Madeleine Riley, Top Shelf Text
