Six for Sunday – Books Set Over Christmas

Six for Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Steph at A Little But a Lot. Check out the link for the list of upcoming prompts!!! They are always a lot of fun, and I have a blast participating each week!

This week’s prompt is: Books Set Over Christmas.

This was actually a little tough for me, since I don’t tend to read a ton of “seasonal” books, but I feel like I was able to come up with a decent list. 😉 Let’s check it out!


Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Okay, I know this one is a little bit of a gimme, and EVERY book in the series has a Christmas chapter, but one could argue that this is the most important because it’s the very first! Plus Harry gets the Invisibility Cloak, and that’s Kind Of A Big Deal.


The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Hear me out. So the Witch makes it so it’s “always winter but never Christmas” in Narnia, but then the Pevensie kids come along and start to break her spell, so we actually get to see Santa and he brings presents and a feast and if that doesn’t count, then when the heck does?


Little Women by Lousia May Alcott

This book pretty much defines “books set over Christmas”. If you disagree, you are wrong and I will be judging you.


How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss

Okay, so I know I said that Little Women pretty much defined “books set over Christmas”, but this one sits right beside it next to the definition. Who among us hasn’t at least seen one of the movie adaptations (if not all)?


Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

I am thinking outside the box for this one, okay? While not Christmas, exactly, they do celebrate Yulemas in this book. Dorian gives Celaena a freaking PUPPY (we love you Fleetfoot!!!!) and a shitton of candy which Celaena eats almost all of, which results in her teeth being stained red. It’s a good time.


10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston

I reviewed this fun Christmas read a while back, and I highly recommend everyone check it out! The title really explains the basic plot, and it’s just a great little YA Contemporary that’s perfect for the holidays!
