Seasons Readings Holiday Book Challenge

 I love Christmas and Winter Holidays books.  I can't resist buying them (much to my husband's chagrin).  They're always so happy and uplifting, they are my kryptonite. 
(here's a picture of my current collection, not including the ones I typically borrow from the library!)
I have so many that I'm challenging myself to read one per day in December and post a review of each.

Now, I'm not asking you to do that, though you are more than welcome to join me!

This particular challenge is just asking you to read a winter holiday themed book (Christmas, Hannukah, Ramadan, Kwanzaa, St. Lucia's Day, Dia de Los Reyes Magos, Las Posadas, etc), review it, and use the linky below to share your review(s) with other participants.  Check out the other reviews to find new books to add to your holiday collection.
