Christmassy :: 2019 tbr

November 13, 2019

I have taken a little break from my Christmassy NetGalley-athon this week, but don't worry! I still have something festive to share! I wanted to talk a bit about some of the reading plans (aspirations) I have outside of the NetGalley books.

Here's my little stack of bookish Christmassy joy:

Last Christmas - Edited by Greg Wise and Emma Thompson
I mentioned this one earlier in the week when I was talking about nonfiction November. It is a collection of Christmassy pieces by a range of different people, and is a companion to the movie, which I'm also super keen to see. I was kindly sent this copy by Hachette Australia for review.

A Guinea Pig Nutcracker - Alex Goodwin
The lovely team at Bloomsbury Australia sent me this super cute book of guinea pigs posing in scenes from the Nutcracker ballet. This one will go in our bookish advent calendar.

Dashing Through the Snow - Debbie Macomber
It's no secret that I love Hallmark Christmas movies, and I thought this year it might be fun to choose one or two based on books, and both watch the movie and read the book. I was pleased to find my local library had both the book and the movie of this one - keep an eye out for more in the first week or so of December.

Let it Snow - John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
This is another book/movie one - Netflix dropped the movie adaptation of this book in the past week or so. I have actually read this collection of 3 festive short stories before and thought it was completely charming so I'm totally up for a re-read before I watch the movie. I think I originally read this on my kindle, but have since picked up a gorgeous paperback edition secondhand.

The Christmasaurus and The Christmasaurus and the Winter Witch - Tom Fletcher
Another potential re-read - I loved The Christmasaurus when I read it a couple of years ago, and so I was super excited to hear that there was a sequel coming out this year. When I happened across it in my local library it felt like a sign that I should pick it up. I'll likely buy my own copy when it comes out in an edition that matches my copy of The Christmasaurus.

The Christmas Party - Karen Swan
This looks like a classic Christmassy romance - a woman unexpectedly inherits a castle and finds not only a new home but also true love (I haven't read it yet, but that's the vibe I'm getting from the synopsis!). The cover on this one is lovely, and I'm looking forward to getting into it! The Christmas Party was sent to me for review by the team at Pan Macmillan Australia.

What do you think? Where should I start? And do you have anything festive on your November/December tbr?
