Announcing the 2016 Whole Latte Xmas Reading Challenge!

Still finding very few challenges for next year, but here is one for Christmas this year.  I want to do some Christmas reading so I'll try to get at least five books.  Even though it runs till January 7, I plan to  read most of them in December. Sign up at Whole Latte Books.

I look forward to holiday books every year. There's just something special about curling up with a hot latte and a warm blanket with a good holiday book next to the lit Christmas tree while the snow falls quietly outside.

It may only be early November, but I've already started my holiday TBR which you can find 
here.How the Whole Latte Christmas Reading Challenge Works:
  • This is a design it yourself challenge. I want you to choose your own reading goals. This is a low pressure challenge meant to be fun.
  • Books can be any genre but must be winter or holiday themed. While the name of the challenge is Christmas, books about other winter holidays will count. This includes Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, and New Year's.
  • Books may have titles or cover art that features winter, frost, ice, freezing, the months of December or January, or anything else associated with the season.
  • When you have reviewed a book, you are encouraged to come back to this post and add the link to your review in the comments.

Additional Rules: 

  • This challenge runs from Nov 25 - Jan 7.
  • You may sign up anytime during the challenge. 
  • I won't be creating different levels. Read as little or as many books as you want. 
  • You may include books of any format including traditional books, ebooks, or audiobooks.
  • You may reread books. 
  • Books may count towards other reading challenges.
    • Use the hashtag #WholeLatteXmas
