Winter Holiday Challenge Wrap-Up

January 8, 2009

What: Winter Holiday Reading Challenge
When: 1 November 2008 – 31 January 2009
Who: Diane (Book in Hand)
Rules (Copied from her website): The theme for this challenge is Winter Holidays. The books that you choose to read must have a storyline that includes celebrating a winter holiday, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, etc. (However, the holidays are not limited to just these examples.) There is no set number of books.

Books in RED are on more than one list/alternate list)

  • Silent in the Sanctuary (Deanna Raybourn) {11 Nov 08} (REVIEW)
  • Christmas Getaway (Anthology) {28 Dec 08} (REVIEW)
  • Snowbound (Janice Kay Johnson) {19 Nov 08} (REVIEW)
  • Hail to the Chef (Julie Hyzy) {1 Jan 09} (REVIEW)
  • The Mistletoe Wager (Christine Merrill) {7 Dec 08} (REVIEW)
  • Holiday with a Vampire II (Anthology) {27 Nov 08} (REVIEW)

Though there is still plenty of time for me to read more holiday-themed books before the end of January, I met my goal of six. Only disappointment for me was, about mid-December or so, I started to feel lousy and didn’t feel like reading much. I had always intended for Hail to the Chef to be read in January in honor of the Inauguration, but I really wanted to get one more Christmas anthology in before the end of the year.

I’m pretty happy with the selections I made and I enjoyed them all.
