I was both surprised and not surprised to see Christmas decorations out in the shops when I was there last weekend. Yes, it is the beginning of October but it still feels way too early to be even thinking about it being nearly Christmas!
Apparently though, my reading hasn't caught up to the fact that it is too early to be thinking about it yet! This week alone I have read four books that are set at or near Christmas and a couple of others that I have here to read soon are also set at or near Christmas. One of the books is deliberately marketed as a Christmas release but the others are books that I just went into not necessarily books that I realised shared this setting. Fortunately, all of the books are very different from each other. Here are the books that I either have read or I am currently reading with a Christmassy feel
Given that I don't usually go out of my way to read Christmassy books this synchronicity has been a little odd!
I guess this means that Kailana and I should also start giving some thought to the Virtual Advent tour for this year too !
Doomsday Book by Connie Willis and Lola's Secret by Monica McInerney plus listening to A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon (up to disc 11 of 49)
I am not entirely sure, but maybe The House on Olive Street by Robyn Carr or The Case of the Missing Servant by Tarquin Hall
