#TopTenTuesday Holiday Reads

Top Ten Tuesday new

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

The rules are simple:

Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post. Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists. Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

This week’s topic is Holiday Reads so my list is made up of books on a Christmas theme. That’s allowed, isn’t it, now we’re in December? The link from the title will take you to my review.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – the much-loved story of redemption

Mr Dickens and His Carol by Samantha Silva – a charming re-imagining of how Dickens’ famous story might have come about

Miss Marley by Vanessa Lafaye – the engaging story of Jacob Marley’s sister

Collected Ghost Stories by M. R. James – Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas in our house without a spooky tale from the master

The Visitor at Anningley Hall by Chris Thorndycroft – an expertly crafted prequel to M. R. James’s story, The Mezzotint

Christmas at Ladywell by Nicola Slade – past and present are only a whisper apart…

A Ration Book Christmas by Jean Fullerton – spend the festive season with the Brogan family in WW2 London

Christmas at War by Caroline Taggart – true stories of Christmas during the Second World War

Hercule Poirot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie – the famous Belgian detective finds the holidays are anything but merry when a family reunion is marred by murder

An Edwardian Christmas by John S. Goodall – a wonderful book full of beautiful paintings

  1. A Ration Book Christmas sounds so interesting. A relative of mine saved their ration book and showed it to me once. It was amazing how many things had to be carefully rationed out. Even stuff like shoes and clothing!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
