Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: If you celebrate Christmas, do you feel the need to stop reading anything but Christmas-themed romances as the holiday season starts?
I sometimes read a Christmas book or two in December, but I definitely don’t stop reading other books, and I wouldn’t say my Christmas choices tend particularly towards romances either. Admittedly, my very favorite is The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren Willig, which is a Christmas-set romance. But my other two favorites are not romances, or much like each other: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and Hogfather by Terry Pratchett.
I actually do more Christmas movie-watching than reading, though. Always The Charlie Brown Christmas, often It’s a Wonderful Life and recently whichever past Dr. Who Christmas Special strikes my fancy–and the new one, of course!
Do you read Christmas (or other holiday) books in December? Does it become your main focus, or a kind of add-on?

One year I read a load of Christmas themed books to review on my blog, but that was early in my blogging days and I don’t really bother now. I have just got a Christmas book, which I may read for next year, though. Or maybe between Christmas and new year this, if I have time 🙂
I don’t really look for Christmas themed books at the holidays. If I happen to find one (hear about it earlier than in December), I may wait to read it until it’s Christmas time just because it’s more “in the season” then. But I read a variety of books all through the year and don’t change that at Christmas.
