The Cozy Pages’ Christmas Reading Recommendations

It’s the beginning of December!!! Wow! Now, I’ve been immersed in my Christmas reading, but just in case you’re still looking for some seasonal reads, I’ve put together a little list.

Anyone who’s read bits and bobs from my blog should know that I love Christmas and more importantly, I adore Christmasy reads! I love sweet holiday romances, Christmas cozies (even with the dead bodies 🤔) and Christmas themed historical romance novellas are a must each year too. I’ve read so many over the years, I can’t possibly remember them all but a few definitely stand out. I’ve still put together a relatively short list of some of my favourites. The majority of these are books I read since starting this blog three years ago but a couple are from before!

In case you’re still looking for some festive reads to add to your list, please check out this list of my Christmas Reading Recommendations.

Okay, with a blog name like The Cozy Pages, how could I not start this list with my favourite Christmas Cozies?!

My List of Christmas Cozy Mysteries
  1. Cocoa Curses by Erin Johnson
  2. Cookie Dough, Snow and Wands Aglow by Erin Johnson
  3. A Mistletoe Christmas by Karen MacInerney
  4. Sharp Edge by Lisa B. Thomas
  5. How Aunt Tillie Stole Christmas by Amanda M. Lee
  6. Swamp Santa by Jana DeLeon
  7. Grave Holiday by Lily H. Hart

Next up, only one of my very favourite authors, someone whose Christmas books are an absolute must! Her stories are so touching and festive, they get their own category! Check out this list of Christmas books by Jessica Redland.

  1. Charlee and the Chocolate Shop
  2. Making Wishes at Bayview
  3. Starry Skies Over the Chocolate Pot
  4. Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes

Jessica’s books are about the journeys taken by strong, determined women. There’s usually a bit of romance involved too, which brings me to the next category: Christmas Romances!

the christmas romance stories
  1. Christmas at the Chateau by Lorraine Wilson
  2. The Winter We Met by Samantha Tonge
  3. A Vicarage Christmas by Kate Hewitt
  4. A Cosy Christmas in Cornwall by Jane Linfoot
  5. A Lion is not just for Christmas by Henriette Gyland
  6. A Miracle of Hope Street by Emma Heatherington
  7. Rewrite the Stars by Emma Heatherington

Some favourite christmas books

In keeping with the theme of romance, I also loved these historical Christmas novellas.

  1. A Holiday by Gaslight by Mimi Mathews
  2. It Happened Under the Mistletoe by Valerie Bowman

These last two books don’t easily fall into any one category but they are packed full with true Christmas spirit. They provide a great reminder of what the season is truly about.

  1. The Last Homecoming by Dan Chabot
  2. The Christmas Spirit by Susan Buchanan

I think that’s about 22 recommendations! I hope you’ll enjoy at least one of them too!

Happy December!!!

  1. Great post Nina. I have read several of these, but there are some that have not been on my radar. Will be checking them out, even though I don’t need anymore Christmas books on my TBR.

  2. Oh my goodness, my very own category!!!! That is beyond amazing. I cannot thank you enough. Yay! I’ve just submitted the MS to my editor for my 3rd Hedgehog Hollow book and am feeling shattered so it was such a delight to click onto this post and see this.

    What a gorgeous looking list of recommendations. I love the titles in the Erin Johnson ones. I’ve always thought this when seeing them reviewed by you so must check those out soon.

    1. Awww. Well, it’s not hard to love them at all. I hope you’ve got some ideas in store for us for next Christmas! Congrats on Hedgehog 3. I know there’s probably still work to be fine but it’s wonderful knowing there’s more in store for us!!!
      That Erin Johnson series is so cute. Definitely one of my favourite cozy series. I hope you do get a chance at some point!
