It’s less than one week from Christmas and with it, the arrival of Santa and presents to bring smiles to the faces of children. As is a usual thing around here, we’re taking a look at some books Santa can leave under the tree or to be more accurate some books I recently(ish) added to my shelf. Ergo, I did the work for Santa already – because let’s be real, he’s busy enough as is.
Honestly I’m in this phase right now where I really don’t see books and think, “I WANT THAT.” It’s not that I don’t have books I continue to preorder or order for my shelf, it’s more that I’m going through something that is begging for simplifying LIFE. For not picking up something just because it’s “cool” and everyone markets something as the “must read” of the year. I’m working hard, each year to define what likes I have and within those to purchase novels that I enjoy. This is why it’s harder each year to come up with a list like this despite how fun this is to curate. But in the end, it’s not a bad kind of hard. Just different. That said, let’s take a look at the shopping I already did for myself… but hey, we can give Santa credit.

1: THE HAWTHORNE LEGACY, JENNIFER LYNN BARNES
Haven’t read a novel by Jennifer (still), but her books always sound fun and I’ve bene hearing about Little White Lies again (that it’s really good). I haven’t read book one in this latest series so I really shouldn’t have picked up book two, but here we are. Amazon | Goodreads
2: BLAME IT ON THE MISTLETOE, BETH GARROD
3: THE HOLIDAY SWITCH, TIF MARCELO
4: IN THE STUDY WITH THE WRENCH, DIANA PETERFREUNDDEAR SANTA: HERE’S THE NEW BOOKS WE'LL PRETEND ARE FROM YOU! #BOOKNERD #BOOKED #TOPTENTUESDAY #BOOKWORM #YALIT #NEWBOOKS #CHRISTMASBOOKS #DEARSANTA #CHRISTMAS Click To Tweet
5: THE WEDDING RINGER, KERRY REA
6: THE LONDON HOUSE, KATHERINE REAY
At surface level, this one “feels” different than Reay’s prior novels. But this also happens to be the third book by Reay I haven’t read. Perhaps her styling has changed in that time. Either way, I look forward to reading this one, which I think is a kind of “time slip” novel. Amazon | Goodreads
7: HOW TO LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR, SOPHIE SULLIVAN (PREORDER)
Never read anything by Sophie, but this does sound fun so I picked it up on that basis. Plus, this one sounds SUPER cute about a woman about to finish design school but she has a grumpy neighbor to deal with! Amazon | Goodreads
8: TEN RULES FOR FAKING IT, SOPHIE SULLIVAN
