For those of us who enjoy a warm and seasonal read, I’ve got a list of potential TBR additions as we race towards the most wonderful time of year otherwise known as Christmas.
Each year, I make it a point to create time to enjoy some of these. At least, this is a Christmas-y tradition I’ve employed in the last few years. In that time, I’ve amassed a small, but happy personal collection, which is why most of these books are on this list. It’s that or simple because I’ve read them. That said, you will see a few I haven’t read, but they sound too cute not to include. Of course, this means this list is far from inclusive, but maybe you’ll find one or two novels to enjoy!
*I also, quite randomly, and maybe foolishly (because I have enough busyness in my life right now) joined this week’s Tis-the-Season-a-Thon (December 2 – 8). Hoping it’s fun, and if you’re curious, I posted the TBR on Youtube. Currently, my first read is Carols and Chaos, which I’m making for the “book title related to music.”
Without further ado, let’s have a look at what seasonal, festive romance reads occupy my shelf.

1: My True Love Gave to Me (12 Novella Collection)
There are definitely some misses in this collection, but overall, it’s got a few fun stories. Pretty sure favorites of mine were by Jenny Han (obviously) and Stephanie Perkins, too. Amazon | Goodreads
2: Carols and Chaos by Cindy Antsey
This is one that’s been gathering dust on my shelf. I feel bad about this because it sounds so fun, plus I like that it’s different than most of my season reads (meaning, it’s a historical). I’ve just started it, and so far, it is cute. Amazon | Goodreads
3: What Light by Jay Asher
4: Christmas at Whitefriars by Elizabeth Camden
5: We Met in December by Rosie Curtis
6: 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston
7: Miss Christmas by Gigi Garrett
A cute novella about a woman in charge of the décor and tree for Rockefeller center! It’s a quick, cute read; and if you recognize it, but didn’t know it as a book, it may be because it was adapted as a Hallmark romance. Amazon | Goodreads
8: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
This one isn’t “Christmas” per se, but it does end (right?) at Christmastime, and the movie has a few winter-y scenes, too, so we’re going with it; plus what book is better defied as a “warm” read than this? Amazon | Goodreads
9: Like a Winter Snow by Lindsay Harrel
10: Christmas at the Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson
11: His Mistletoe Miracle by Jenny B. Jones
12: It Happened One Christmas by Christen Krumm
13: My New Crush Gave to Me by Shani Petroff
14: Kiss Miss in New York by Catherine Rider
15: Deck the Shelves by Toni Shiloh
16: Almost Christmas by Brooke St. James
This one has been on my bookshelf for far too long. It sounds fun, but alas, I just haven’t made it a point to pick it up. Must remedy this (just maybe not until Christmas of 2020!). Amazon | Goodreads
17: Royally Yours by Melissa Tagg (Ashley Clark, Liz Johnon, Betsey St. Amant)
Currently reading this collection; it’s sweet (I’ve read two of the four novellas) just as we might expect it to be. The stories don’t connect, but the common thread is the small Vermont town they all take place in, and the theme of a character who happens to have a title that comes with a crown! Amazon | Goodreads
18: Snowflake Sweethearts by Carrie Turansky
19: Snow in Love by Kasie West
Who doesn’t enjoy a cute seasonal novella collection? I know I do, though to be honest, I cannot remember if I’ve read any of the four novellas in this book with exception to Kasie West’s (the author I bought this for). Amazon | Goodreads
