Christmas Novellas

I have always enjoyed reading novella collections. They are fun, easy reads, and are often quite good (though you do occasionally find a bad one). Every year as the Christmas season approaches I promise myself I'm going to read all my Christmas novellas but never follow through. I'll read my favorites that I reread every year and then get caught up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas and once again find myself in January with a stack of unread novellas.

But this year is different. I have actually started in, and now only have three novella collections and one Christmas novel left! The one I am currently reading is Christmas Letters. It's set in WWII, which is one of my favorite time periods, and it is really good so far.

My all time favorite Christmas novella is Cowboy Christmas by Catherine Palmer, Linda Goodnight, and Lisa Harris. I read it every Christmas and have even picked it up a couple times throughout the rest of the year. I would highly recommend picking up a copy and enjoying a good read while you are bundled up in your house this Christmas season!
