The 2015 Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge

Welcome to The 2015 Christmas
Spirit Reading Challenge,
hosted by Michelle, @

Every year at this time, Michelle hosts 
this wonderful reading challenge,
which gives every Christmas addict
(and I count myself among those)
an opportunity to indulge in
the pleasant pastime of reading
Christmas books exclusively during
this beautiful, joyful, and sacred season!
(I'm joining in a little late this year....)
This is the sixth year of the challenge,
and I sure hope there will be
many more to come!

Here are the rules:
1.) The challenge will run from Monday,
Nov. 23, 2015, through
Wednesday, January 6, 2016.
(This is Twelfth Night, or Epiphany.)
2.) Crossover with other challenges
is totally permitted AND
3.) These must be Christmas novels,
books about Christmas lore,
books of Christmas short stories or poems,
books about Christmas crafts,
and, there's a children's 
Christmas books level, too!

Here are the levels:
1.) Candy cane: read 1 book
2.) Mistletoe: read 2 - 4 books
3.) Christmas Tree: read 5 or 6 books
(This is the fanatic level....LOL.)

Additional Levels
Fa La La La Films: watch a bunch of or a few
Christmas's up to you!
Visions of Sugar Plums: read books with
your children this season, and share
what you read.

The additional levels are optional.
You must still complete one
of the main reading levels above.

Michelle has already posted 
a review Linky as a page on her blog.
You will find the link at the top
of the right sidebar on her blog.
She will also be hosting a giveaway!
Please visit her blog for more details,
as well as to add your blog's name

Mistletoe Level

Below are the books I will attempt
to read this year. In fact, I 
have already started reading the first one.

I'm really looking forward to reading
all the reviews by all the 
 participants in this wonderful meme!

Enjoy your selections! I really enjoy watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel, kind-hearted Christmas romances. Besides the ones I mentioned in my goal post, I just started Lakeshore Christmas by Susan Wiggs.

Hi, Lucy!

Oh, I LOVE reading Regency Christmas romances!! I look forward to that activity throughout the whole year!

Hallmark Christmas movies are such jewels! I enjoy them just as much as you obviously do!

I love the look of the books you've picked. I have already added them to my Goodreads TBR. Now I need to check out and add "Lakeshore Christmas"! I had not heard of this one before, either.

Thanks for commenting!! : )
