Ten Fun Christmas Books

I’ve been doing a Top Ten Christmas theme the last couple of weeks. First I shared some of our favorite Christmas movies, then I shared some of our favorite Christmas music. Today I am going to share some of our (mostly my!) favorite Christmas themed books.

Twas the Night Before Christmas

1. Twas the Night before Christmas by Clement C. Moore. Duh! This has to be number one, right? 🙂 I’ve started a tradition that I wrap this book and allow Andrew to open on Christmas Eve and then I read the book to him before he goes to bed. Well, I’m trying to make it a tradition, but we’ll see if Andrew will allow me to keep it up!

A Christmas Carol

2. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. None of the versions of the Christmas Carol or Scrooge would ever had been made possible if it hadn’t been for the book!

White Christmas Pie

3. White Christmas Pie by Wanda Brunstetter. A charming Amish roman fiction novel about a man named Will who is bitter towards his father who left him with an Amish family when he was a young boy. An accident ensues causing a series of events that leads to forgiveness and healing.

The Christmas Shoes

4. The Christmas Shoes by Donna VanLiere. This is the book behind the heart-rendering Christmas song. It was also turned into a movie. (This book is also one of a series of four “Christmas Hope” books.)

the Christmas Wedding

5. The Christmas Wedding by James Patterson. I haven’t read this book, but I have it on my wish list. 🙂 I’m not a huge Jame Patterson fan; but, I have thoroughly enjoyed his non-thriller novels, such as Sam’s Letters to Jennifer and Miracle on the 17th Green, so I have a feeling this will be a great book.

The Meaning of Christmas

6. The Meaning of Christmas by Jean Phillips. This is a lovely children’s book (that is out of stock on Amazon) tells the story of Christmas using familiar nursing-rhyme characters and verse.

God Gave us Christmas

7. God Gave us Christmas by Lisa T. Bergren. Another sweet children’s book that brings out the true meaning of Christmas. You will enjoy it as much as your kids. 🙂

Remembering Christmas: A Novel

8. Remembering Christmas: A Novel by Dan Walsh.  This novel, with the familiar themes of hope and forgiveness, will touch your heart and spirit.

Thomas Kinkade's Home for Christmas

9. Thomas Kinkade’s Home for Christmas by Jo Ann Brown. (Also known as the Christmas Cottage.) This is the story of how Thomas Kinkade became the “painter of light” that his now known to be. There is also a movie version of the book.

The Perfect Christmas

10. The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber. I haven’t read many books from this well-known author; but this was a fun, light read. And, although this book is about a single woman looking for love through a professional matchmaker, you don’t have to be single to enjoy this book. 🙂

And don’t forget to take time to read the most important book of all:

Holy Bible

The Holy Bible. As you know, the book of Luke is the perfect book of the bible to read as we come to the end of our Advent journey and begin the season of Christmas! And so is the prophet of Isaiah. Do try and spend some time with THE WORD this week!

What are your favorite Christmas books and/or novels? Do share!
