Christmas in July, Part II | Top Ten Tuesday

Hosted weekly by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday!

This week's topic is "Auto-Buy Authors," but because I'm trying not to buy too many books, the only authors I could really include on such a list right now would be Sarah Dessen and Kasie West. So, I'm going rogue... 

Last July, in the spirit of "Christmas in July," I shared some of my favorite Christmas books. I'm hoping to add some new ones to that list this year—in the next couple weeks, as well as later, during the holiday season. (Of course, I will be rereading, too, because I can't help it.) Any books I should make sure to add to my TBR?

At the Heart of Christmas by Jill Monroe

"Hiring him could be her best idea. Or her worst mistake."

The Christmas Company by Alys Murray

"With a lot of heart and a little Christmas magic, Kate is convinced she can teach Clark to love her favorite holiday. But can such different people learn to open up and love each other?"

The Christmas Heirloom by Karen Witemeyer, Kristi Ann Hunter, Sarah Loudin Thomas & Becky Wade

"Perfect for the Christmas season, four beloved authors bring their bestselling, award-winning talents to a multigenerational collection of romantic holiday novellas. In stories ranging from 1820s Regency England to present-day Washington state, readers will be treated to Christmas tales of an heirloom brooch passed from mother to daughter for almost two hundred years. Will the family legend claiming the brooch brings love to its recipient hold true for these women separated by the years but bonded together by the ties of family?"

Christmas in London by Anita Hughes

"A charming, glamourous love story set at Claridge's in London during the magical week before Christmas starring a sweet NYC baker and the Cooking Channel Producer who could change her life."

The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck

"Based on a deeply personal true story, The Christmas Sweater is a warm and poignant tale of family, faith and forgiveness that offers us a glimpse of our own lives -- while also making us question if we really know what's most important in them."

Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle

"An ill-timed storm on Christmas Eve buries the residents of Gracetown under multiple feet of snow and causes quite a bit of chaos. One brave soul ventures out into the storm from her stranded train and sets off a chain of events that will change quite a few lives. Over the next three days one girl takes a risky shortcut with an adorable stranger, three friends set out to win a race to the Waffle House (and the hash brown spoils), and the fate of a teacup pig falls into the hands of a lovesick barista."

Mr. Dickens and His Carol by Samantha Silva

"Laced with humor, rich historical detail from Charles Dickens’ life, and clever winks to his work, Samantha Silva's Mr. Dickens and His Carol is an irresistible new take on a cherished classic."
