Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Holiday Reads. My Holiday Reads TEND to be anything I’m reading at the Holidays – similar to my issues with “Beach Reads” but I don’t think that’s what the topic is actually looking for. So. Books based around the holidays, I suppose?
Well the obvious first one is Krampus the Yule Lord. Written and illustrated by Brom, it’s a dark, fantastical tale of a small village’s brush with Krampus.
Next up I’m going to go with Spinning Silver, by Naomi Novik, another wintry fairy tale.
In a similar vein to Spinning Silver, we have the trilogy that begins with The Bear and the Nightingale, a lush story based in Russian folklore. (The other two books are The Girl in the Tower and The Winter of the Witch.)
Girls Made of Snow and Glass (a feminist Snow White) is the last of the already-read books I’m putting on this list. From here we’ll be getting into books I want to read that seem holiday-themed to me!
Eight Kinky Nights is a Hanukkah-themed f/f polyamorous romance with fat, queer, disabled, autistic characters. I’ve already pre-ordered the Kindle version, and I can’t wait for the 16th so I can read it!
You know, I thought I’d be able to come up with three more holiday books, but these seven are all I can think of. So I think I’m wrapping up here!
Great list! I love Spinning Silver so much, and I want to cross The Bear and the Nightingale off my TBR this winter. 🙂
That Krampus book looks awesome!
Spinning Silver is a great book for this week! Happy reading!
My Top Ten Tuesday!
The Bear and the Nightingale is one I am DETERMINED to get to before the year ends!!!
I see The Bear and the Nightingale on so many lists. I really need to check that one out!
