Top Ten Tuesday: Holiday Reads

Hello! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s topic is holiday reads: books you like reading during the holiday season.

Whether or not you celebrate any holidays over the winter, it’s a perfect time to curl up with a book and read for hours, so here are some of my favorite books to read over winter break and the holiday season

1 The Penderwicks, by Jeanne Birdsall

2 The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, by Jeanne Birdsall

3 The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, by Jeanne Birdsall

4 The Penderwicks in Spring, by Jeanne Birdsall

5 The Penderwicks at Last, by Jeanne Birdsall

The whole entire series is amazing, and the Penderwick siblings are some of my favorite bookish characters! Jeanne Birdsall’s The Penderwicks series is the perfect thing to read over the holidays.

6 Secrets at Sea, by Richard Peck

7 The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail, by Richard Peck

(I have a signed copy!!!!!!!!!)

These two books aren’t exactly part of a series, but they are part of the same world, where mice are everywhere. They are really cute stories, and as always with Richard Peck’s books, are full of humor.

8 Absolutely Truly, by Heather Vogel Frederick

Truly, the main character, recently moved to Pumpkin Falls, Massachusetts, where her family owns a bookstore called Lovejoy books. Lovejoy books is so amazing and cute, and I wish there was a bookstore like it where I live! It’s so cute in so many ways; the pumpkin whoopie pies, Miss Marple, the store’s mascot and dog, and the fact that they let people just come in, hangout, and read!

9 The Mother Daughter Book Club: all of them! (also by Heather Vogel Frederick)

The ways that the book club discusses books, and how they host their meetings is so fun and festive all year round, and the way that the series follows a bunch of different girls lives is so amazing and so fun to read! I’ve only read this series one, but I want to reread it already!

I could list so many more books, but I’m going to end with just this for today!

What are some books that you like to curl up with in the winter and during the holiday season? Do you like some of the same books? Chat with me in the comments below!

  1. YAYYYY – the whole series! My favorites are definetely number one to three, I also love four but not as much because the original three sisters (minus Batty) are not as important here…. I get that it’s Batty’s time to shine and I also love her, but the most interesting characters for me were always Skye and Jane! I didn’t like the last book because Lydia was portrayed as a baby even though she was ten years old, while the others were super sophisticated at age ten… And also because Skye and Dusek — come on?!
    Love your list, happy reading!

    1. Yeah, the fourth book is way less interesting. Skye is so mean to Batty, and to Jeffrey. The fifth is a little better. It’s so funny how Mrs. Tifton actually likes Lydia!
      Happy reading!!!
