This time of year fills my Google Reader with posts about holiday-themed books. Now I love Christmas, Christmas music (after Thanksgiving only!), Christmas movies, Christmas decorations, and Christmas cookies(!). I am simply not, however, at all interested in Christmas/holiday lit. I’ve been seeing lots of reviews from reviewers whose opinions I trust like Swapna, Kathy, Julie, and Amy, but I just can’t get excited about them at all. It seems odd, because I did enjoy reading spooky books and gothic novels around Halloween. Do these Christmas books tend to be in genres I don’t read as often (cozy mysteries, chick lit, and Christian fiction)? Am I just a Grinch?
How do you feel about holiday-related books? Do you love them? Hate them? Read them for some holidays and not for others? I want to know!
