In last month's post I explained that Halloween is my major holiday. It's also the beginning of my down-time. I suffer from SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder. I have the lights, my doctor has me taking extra vitamin D, nothing makes me care all that much. I'm hoping my new granddaughter will do something, but I've already done my Christmas shopping for her. The best part was the near empty parking lot, the empty stores, filled shelves, and clear streets for driving. Now I only have to wait for next month to make the delivery and another Christmas is over and done with.
Except, this year I want to change things. I haven't read a holiday-themed romance in years. Many of my fellow Genre-istas write holiday romances that are available this time of year. Probably almost all read them. Then there is me. (I wrote a piece of Christmas-themed flash fiction a few years ago, I'm not a total buzz kill.) The truth is I love happy couples. So I'm making an early New Year's resolution to find some good ones to read.
I am hoping readers of this blog will help me. I would love to hear some recommendations of holiday books to read. I promise to take a look at all you come up with, so leave comments on Thanksgiving (are there any) or Christmas romance stories. Bonus points for Hanukkah or Kwanza romances. I'm really hoping you can pass me on some suggestions that I can use, especially if some help lift me from this Scrooge spirit.
So let me know. Leave suggestions for me in the comments.
Oh, and, happy holidays.
