READING RECOMMENDATIONS

We have an exciting set of holiday books for you to read:

These include old favorites and classics such as:

A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, recounts the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man.

My True Love Gave to Me is a quirky and delightful book of short stories that are all set during Christmas. The set features some famous names such as David Levithan, Gayle Forman, Rainbow Rowell and Stephanie Perkins to name but a few. A great book to read for those that enjoy holiday stories, holiday movies, made-for-TV-holiday specials, holiday episodes of your favorite sitcoms.

The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand, which explores a world where Scrooge’s experience in Dickens’ A Christmas Carol was real and details the lives of the hardworking employees behind it.

Girl Online, by Zoe Sugg, tells the tale of Penny, a high school girl who blogs her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, high school drama, her quirky family, and the panic attacks that have begun to take over her life. When things go from bad to worse at school, her parents accept an opportunity to whisk the family away for Christmas at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. There, Penny meets Noah, a gorgeous, guitar strumming American. Suddenly she is falling in love and capturing every moment she spends with "Brooklyn Boy" on her blog. But Noah has a secret, too, one that threatens to ruin Penny's cover and her closest friendship forever".
