Top 10 Christmas Books

Perfectly timed from The Guardian, Matt Haig's Top 10 Christmas Books.

1. A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens

2. Father Christmas - Raymond Briggs

3. A Child's Christmas in Wales - Dylan Thomas

4. Little Women - Louisa May Alcott

5. Holidays on Ice - David Sedaris (see my review)

6. The Snowman - Raymond Briggs

7. The Dark is Rising - Susan Cooper

8. Mog's Christmas - Judith Kerr

I haven't read the book, but Sainsbury's Official Christmas Advert this year is Mog's Christmas Calamity. It's very cute.

9. Letters from Father Christmas - J.R.R. Tolkien

10. The Little Match Girl - Hans Christian Andersen

Of these, I've only read Little Women, but we see A Christmas Carol at our local theater almost every year, and saw it again last night. Now I'm getting in the spirit!

The Grinch, of course. Where is How the Grinch Stole Christmas?

And, honestly, The Little Match Girl is about New Year's Eve. Is that really a Christmas book?

I really think Matt Haig needs to study up on Christmas books.

A Christmas Carol is a lovely read Susan. I really must read Little Women sometime soon.

I've read the Little Match Girl Deb, but quite some time ago, and hadn't remembered it was about New Year's Eve.
