#SixforSunday is a blog feature started by A Little but A Lot in 2017. It’s a weekly blog post where you get to share 6 books which fill a certain prompt. This month is full of festive goodness, and this weeks topic is about books I’d like to celebrate the holidays in. This prompt was so much harder than it should have been because so many of the places I read about are not peaceful, and therefore not a place I’d want to spend the holidays visiting.
That’s right, Sir Walter Scott’s classic novel of romantic heroism is close to my heart in every way that matters. Who wouldn’t want to spend Christmas in the New England countryside? I would just want to spend it there after all the action has already passed–when Richard has returned and Ivanhoe is not in danger and Robin Hood (because he’s there, too) is just hanging out with the big boys.
Christmas in Neverland? A land made from children’s dreams? Yes. Please sign me up right now. I’ll even invite Captain Hook to carve the goose.
Not many people have been following this blog long enough to know about mine and Becky’s obsession with this series. It’s sort of a cozy mystery series, but Liz Talbot is a private investigator who solves mysteries for her career and not as some hobby as most cozy mystery protagonists do. Also, they just released a Christmas book, which Becky is reading right now.
Lord of the Rings–The Shire
Here’s another place I’d like to visit for the holidays, but only after all the action is through. I’d love to spend the holidays in a cozy Hobbit-hole. I’m short enough that it would be comfortable.
Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe
I still really love this book. The town in which the story takes place is so small-town and cute that I would love to spend Christmas there. I feel like they would have Christmas festivals that would rock my face off. And the FOOD! It makes me hungry just thinking about it.
You knew this one was coming. Honestly, I can’t imagine anyone not having Hogwarts on their list. That said, please share your list with me. Feel free to link to your post in the comments.
