#T5W: Books To Read By The Fire (winter/holiday recommendations)

Top 5 Wednesdays are hosted by Ginger Reads Lainey and you can find the goodreads page here for more information.

A Big Sky Christmas (Christmas, #3)A Rocky Mountain Christmas (Christmas, #2)

My top 2 favorites are in the Christmas series by William W. and J.A. Johnstone.  Most of their many books are westerns probably aimed at men, but this series has a good blend of action, adventure, and romance, tied up perfectly for both women and men to enjoy.  every year, this being the 4th year in a row, I have enjoyed the next book in the series.  I am a year behind, but this way my library has the book for me to read.  A new book came out this year, so I know I will have another book to enjoy next Christmas, when hopefully a 6th book in the series comes out.

The Red Suit Diaries: A Real-Life Santa on Hopes, Dreams, and Childlike Faith

I so enjoyed this book.  It is filled with funny anecdotes and stories of Ed Butchart's career of playing Santa.  I read this last year and it put me in such a Christmassy mood.  I really need to read it every year or two.

Bring Me Home for Christmas (Virgin River, #16)

This is the 16th book in the Virgin River series by Robyn Carr.  Although it is a series one does not have to read any or all of the books.  They can also be stand alones since enough of the back story is found in each book, but it is also more enjoyable reading them from the beginning and meeting up with old friends in future books.

Mistletoe Magic (Copper Mountain Christmas, #3)

This is a very short story of only 40 or so pages, but it is very sweet and puts you in the holiday mood.  Whenever there is an adorable dog or cat on the cover of a book, the chances of the book being a good one increases.
