Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon–It’s over!

Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-ThonThe Ho-Ho-H0 Read-a-Thon is hosted

by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Jennifer @ The Book Shelfery.

December is one of my favorite times of the year and I really like reading holiday themed books set in the winter. I love sitting by my fire on a cold winter day reading and love reading about that, too! Kimba and Jennifer host a fun Read-a-Thon and I enjoyed participating last year.

How’d I do?

I had lots of fun reading Christmas stories. I read two books, a very short story by Spencer Quinn and a short story by Jennifer Crusie from an anthology. And I’m part-way done with another book.

  • Read holiday books before the beginning of the Read-a-Thon and review them during the Read-a-Thon (Reviewed books read before the Read-a-Thon–Mistletoe Murder & The Christmas Joy Ride)

Christmas Gifts by Mary Balogh

Christmas Miracles by Mary Balogh–started reading the book on 12 Nov

“Christmas Crumble” by M.C. Beaton

√“Hot Toy” by Jennifer Cruisie

√“Santa 365” by Spencer Quinn

My Buddhist Christmas by Jeremy Phillps

√Christmas is Murder by C.S. Challinor

  • Participate in at least one challenge and the Twitter Party (I completed two challenges; however I missed the Twitter party. I’ve been sick the last two or three weeks and I was in bed by 7 p.m. 😦
  • Share one of my favorite Christmas cookie recipes


Have you read any holiday books yet this year? How did you like them?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. Great job! I haven’t read any of the Balogh Christmas stories though I do want too. I loved your Christmas cookie recipe and I love the idea of reading Christmas books before the read-a-thon so you could have Christmas-y reviews during it. Hope you’re feeling better!


  2. Great job on the readathon! I never used to read seasonally but I have to admit it’s kinda nice to some holiday or wintery reads at this time. Plus this readathon is fun!
