I am a Christmas Crazy Person, I love everything christmas. I adore holiday shows on TLC & A&E and I am always up for a good Christmas book. I just so happened to download 3 books from Netgalley and I can’t wait to get this read-a-thon started so I can get into the Christmas spirit.

My goal is to read these three books, however, even if I get to only one I will be super happy and in the mood to deck the halls and Fa La La La La 🙂


Are you joining the Ho Ho Ho Read-a-thon? What books are you reading to get in the christmas mood
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading

    • I blame Hallmark for my Fa La La Mood 🙂

      I am hoping to read them all and it works perfect with Netgalley november since I picked these up on Netgalley. Killing two Partridges in a pear tree at one time 😉 (get it lol)

    • No problem 🙂
      I have been watching xmas movies since sunday on the hallmark channel and I seem to be rather addicted so the books are exactly what I need to keep me in the spirit of xmas. So far Blame it on Mistletoe is super cute and I am loving it 🙂
