2015 HO-HO-HO READ-A-THON

You can find out more about this challenge, HERE. It is hosted by BOOKSHELFERY and Kimba over at CAFFEINATED BOOK REVIEWS.


◀MY CHALLENGE GOALS▶

Last year was my first winter holidays season as a book blogger (my blogging before was just personal bookish things), and most of my new blogging buddies were nudging me to read a Christmas book . I was willing, and even found a free Christmas ebook about a witch and downloaded it. However, being new to blogging had its special flavor of ARC chaos, and I never got around to reading it. 

I am going to make it my first challenge read. If you are interested it is, sadly, no longer free, but still a bargain st $1.99.

I saw this on Katherine's blog I WISH I LIVED IN A LIBRARY. It is from NETGALLEY. I think it was a Read Now, but I am not sure. This is going to be my second read.

When I was looking for free Kindle Classics with 99¢ added narrations, I saw this and realized I had never read it. I will be listening to the narration. This is the last "for sure" book. The last two will be maybes.

♦♦♦

I searched "free Christmas" in the Kindle store and found this. It is only 84 pages, so I hope I can squeeze it in.

When I searched A VERY COCO CHRISTMAS to add it to Goodreads, this was right underneath on the dropdown list, and I love creepy so on a whim I checked it out and it was a free Kindle book. Ha ha. So I got it. It is 200 pages though, but even if I don't get to it for the read-a-thon, I still might find time to read it. It is a Middle Grade.
Ho-Ho-Ho.

  1. I wanted to do this challenge but I'm already doing several and don't want to get confused. LOL I've had Creepy Christmas for a while now. There's another fun one, Snowman Shivers, and I think it's still free on Amazon. I'm going to review them for a scary Christmas post.

    1. I should have figured you would be the one to know any and all books with a unique title. I will grab the other one if it is still free, and maybe I will do a post on my MG blog about them. Thanks for the heads up. :)

  3. Those look fun. Christmas reads should be fun although I like a mystery too (preferably holiday tinged) once in a while too. Happy reading!

  4. People I want to punch in the throat. Ha! I haven't had a Christmas like that but I have had other family functions where that thought had crossed my mind. Thanks for stopping by my hohohorat post.

  6. AHHHH. This sounds like a great idea! I actually have never, ever read a Christmas-y book myself (which is kinda weird considering we Filipinos are nuts about Christmas). Maybe I should write a romance with a Filipino Christmas as the theme... hmmmm. I will have to check these books out, too :D

    1. Yes! I find I do much better listening to Dickens than reading it. :)
