It’s the most wonderful time of the year for us book lovers—after all, as the song goes, the weather outside is frightful. Best to hunker down, get your cozy on, and tuck into a book that’ll spark that Christmas glow.
For some, it might be heartwarming stories about the virtues of family life that does the trick, or maybe it’s profound historical fiction that walks you through the past in order to feel more grateful for the present. Whatever tickles your mistletoe, these seven reads are the coziest way to celebrate the season of good cheer—even if they come with a few unexpected tears (we’re looking at you, Greg Kincaid).
