Holiday Reading Recommendations

Welcome back to the reading world!

It’s that time of year again. You’re nervous about bringing them when you’re visiting the family.

That’s right. The stakes are high for bringing books home for the holiday…

All jokes aside, I love picking out my next read. Normally during the holidays, I’m worried about a careful balance of packing books to travel and making sure I end the year with my 5 star predictions. It’s the perfect balance of finding the right number of books, a variety of genres, what I’m wanting to read next, a few wild cards, and of course… being able to carry them all. Physics is the ultimate factor in my book packing.

However, this year being what it is, I’m in need of plenty of good books to keep me company at home between the video chats and such. For everyone else trying to navigate the holiday season this year, I’m sharing 5 recommendations for books to read while you’re at home for the holidays!

My 5 Recommendations:
