#HoHoHo Read-a-Thon: Starting Line @kimbacaffeinate

The HoHoHo Read-a-Thon has begun! I've dug out my Christmas books and I'm ready!!

I'm Reading:

Something from my dusty bookshelf. I really loved Graham's A Magical Christmas, so I have high hopes for this one!

by Heather Graham

I'm Listening To:

I love Macomber's Christmas stories! I received this one for review.

by Debbie Macomber

Other Christmas Books on My TBR:

Promise Me
by Richard Paul Evans

Seven Days of Us
by Francesca Hornak

A Baxter Family Christmas
by Karen Kingsbury
(The Baxters, Book #24)
No, I have not read any others in the series so I hope this works as a standalone.

Christmas Jars

The Memory Tree

And some Christmas stories with murder on the menu:

The Last Noel
by Heather Graham

Wreck the Halls
by Sarah Graves
(Home Repair is Homicide, Book #5)
Love the name of this series! I haven't read the earlier ones in the series so hopefully this one works as a standalone.

Have you read any of these books? Which ones should I bump up the TBR pile?

I will post my updates on Twitter using the #HoHoHoRAT hashtag, and then do a wrap-up post at the end of the read-a-thon on my blog.

Thanks again to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer for hosting!


  1. Great TBR, Darlene! I've read one of Heather Graham's Christmas books, I can't remember which. My mum was saying the other day she loves Debbie Macomber's Christmas stories, so I might try to read one of those this winter!

    1. I love Macomber's Christmas stories! They're sweet and perfect "feel good" stories.

  2. These all look interesting! My book club is looking for a good Christmas read. We will discuss it—or not!— at our holiday brunch so we are looking for something light and quick to read. It probably should not be a new release since members like to be able to check it out from the library, or pick it up for the Kindle at a 'specials' rate.

    Based on you holiday readings of the past, can you make any recommendations?

    1. Macomber's Christmas books are perfect sweet "feel good" stories. If your group likes inspirational/religious stories, I absolutely loved Melody Carlson's The Christmas Angel Project. That would be good for a book club, if the group likes that type of a read. I love Richard Paul Evans, especially his The Christmas List.

    2. Thanks for your speedy reply! I'll take a look at these and see what is available at the library and/or what is on sale!

    3. You're welcome! Hope you enjoy!

  3. I LOVED The Christmas Train! I hope you enjoy it as well!

  4. Wow you have some good titles! I devoured Merry and Bright and need to check out some of these.

  5. Tis the season. I may have to look up some of these.
