So far I read 3 books:
I enjoyed a lot all of these. I also started The Christmas Train, and I also read (and loved) Noelle Adams's story Holiday Heat in the Love for the Holidays collection. Hopefully, I'll finish both of these before the end of the read-a-thon. I also completed the Christmas Cover Lover Puzzle Challenge, and I participated in the Holiday Scramble, although I still haven't been able to unscramble all of the words.
Ok, so, as always, I didn't quite stick to my reading plans. I planned to read only holiday themed books, but I also read a book that I should've totally read for Halloween The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud, but it was the only one, everything else I read was holiday-themed.
So, here's what I read for the read-a-thon:
I also started, but didn't finish in time:
...I read a 3rd of The Christmas Train, and 3 of the 5 novellas in the Love for the Holidays collection.
I also participated in 2 of the challenges:
- Christmas Cover Lover Puzzle Challenge
- Holiday Scramble
I also joined the #HoHoHoRAT Twitter Party, which was lots of fun.
