Cozy Christmas Books are just what the doctor ordered for the season. Along with Christmas movies, these are the books I just love to read during the holidays. Recently the adjective cozy seems to be used more with mystery books, but I think it is definitely more applicable to Christmas!
Most of you will say you are busy planning parties and running errands. But when you do get a chance to put your feet up, there is nothing better than a crackling fire, a warm toddy and a book that promises hope, fun, family, laughter, love and romance – all things that spell Christmas.
Hope you enjoy these selected Christmas novels from some of the best authors.
