Christmas Reading Review 2016

Every year I look forward to reading several books over the Christmas holiday.  This year, I was able to read:


Hercule Poirot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie.  4/5 stars.  See my review here.


A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles M. Schulz.  The book is simply the written form of the beloved Christmas TV special.  While good, it doesn’t quite capture the magic from the screen.  4/5 stars.


How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss.  The well-known story is one that I think we should share with children every year.  Christmas isn’t about the presents, food or other material things.  It’s about friends, family and love.  The book is a wonderful presentation but it’s the animated show that made my heart grow three sizes.  4/5 stars.


2016 is my first annual reading of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. At some point I will write a proper review for this but it is a classic for a reason.  The ghosts of Christmas past, present and future teach us that we have to look outside of ourselves to find happiness and fulfillment.  5/5 stars.

This is my fourth annual reading of A Christmas Story by Jean Shepherd.  I love the movie and I love the book.  You can find my review here.


Merry Christmas everyone.
