Like This? Try These: Holiday Movies!

Happy Wednesday Savvy Readers! We’re counting down to Christmas today with a list of books you need to try based on your favourite holiday movies! From hilarious rom-coms to feel-good family films, there’s something for everyone on this list!

If you’re a fan of Love Actually like me (and really, who isn’t?!) I highly suggest picking up All About Us by Tom Ellen! A modern retelling of A Christmas Carol following one man whose marriage is on the rocks this story is all about self-reflection and appreciating the love that’s *all around us*.

If you’ve seen The Holiday, there’s a good chance you appreciate how significant a change of scenery can be! We Met in December is a charming rom-com from Rosie Curtis that follows one woman who follows her dream of moving to London where she also happens to falls hard for her new flatmate. 

If Christmas antics are your cup of tea I have a feeling that both of these will be up your alley! In A Boy Called Christmas, Nikolas (also known as “Christmas”) has only received one toy in his life: a doll carved out of a turnip. Still, he tries to believe in happiness living with his father. Then one day his father goes missing and Nikolas must travel to the North Pole to save him. 

An uptight businesswoman learning to appreciate the true magic of Christmas? If you’re a fan of high-powered women and stopping to smell the roses you definitely want to add One More for Christmas by Sarah Morgan to your holiday reading list! 

All about a family falling to pieces and the unexpected ways they put it all back together, Evergreen Tidings from the Baumgartners is perfect for fans of Happiest Season and quirky characters! 

If you love Christmas classics like A Christmas Carol, don’t miss Miss Marley by Vanessa Lafaye! A seasonal tale of kindness and goodwill, In Miss Marley, Lafaye weaves a spellbinding Dickensian tale of ghosts, goodwill and hope following Jacob Marley, Ebeneezer Scrooge’s infamous partner.

Well, that’s all for today Savvy Readers! Tell me, which of these Christmas movies are on your holiday watchlist, and more importantly, how many of these books are you adding to your TBR?
