Snowmen At Christmas | Caralyn Buehner
post image

Out shopping for some books to add into the kiddos' stockings and found a display of winter themed books. I went ahead and read these four. So cute! My favorite was the last one pictured, Snowmen at Christmas. I loved the artwork of their little cozy town and all the snow families.

If you're looking for a holiday read, I highly recommend this set of 12 YA stories by some terrific authors (Laini Taylor--hello!). I think they saved the best for last with Laini Taylor's beautifully dark fairy tale set ins dystopia. I enjoyed all these last three stories so much.

My daughter is loving gingerbread this year. She tried to make a house, but it fell over fast. We're getting inspiration from Food Network's Gingerbread Showdown (photo above is one baker's creation). Now they're asking for Nailed It. . .🤣

I really enjoyed all three of these quirky holiday YA love stories. They all had interested characters and nice holiday tie-ins (one was Hanukkah which was a nice change) without being too cheese-fest.
