Christmas Shoes! Just kidding -- the song annoys me too much.

Dickens wrote a number of other Christmas books, including Cricket on the Hearth. "The Precious Present" by Spencer Johnson is short, but very good.

Here are some others to consider:

The Gift - Cecelia Ahern
Knit the Season A Friday Night Knitting Club Novel - Kate Jacobs
The Stupidest Angel A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror, Version 2.0 - Christopher Moore
An Idiot Girl's Christmas True Tales from the Top of the Naughty List - Laurie Notaro
You Better Not Cry Stories for Christmas - Augusten Burroughs
Let It Snow Three Holiday Stories - John Green etc.
A Redbird Christmas A Novel - Fannie Flagg
The Mitford Snowmen - Jan Karon
The Gift of the Magi - O. Henry
Visions of Sugar Plums - Janet Evanovich
Shakespeare's Christmas - Charlaine Harris

The Santa Shop.

Also, I am taking a HP break and am reading 11/22/63. I'm only 115 pages in but I'm hooked. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Ok, so I just finished 'Swan Song' & it was a very good book, but I really liked 'The Stand' a lot better. I have read & reread The Stand but don't think I would re-read Swan Song.

So glad this thread has been resurrected! I've read many a great book from the recommendations of all of you!

FINALLY reading Gone Girl! This was my pick for summer reading, lol, and here it is mid-October and I'm just now managing to get to it.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! I'm on page 302 out of 470 and wow am I hooked!! I realize many are not happy with the ending so trying to steel myself for that.

Cannot wait to read her other books too!

Swan Song is next on my list. I am currently reading 2 short story collaborations by Stephen King and Joe Hill, Full Throttle and In the Tall Grass. Both are very good, spooky fun.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I just finished Dark Places last night. It was good but I think Gone Girl was better, even though I didn't like the ending.
I'm still on the waiting list for Sharp Objects, but I may just break down and buy from Amazon and download it tonight.

I'm still on my libraries waiting list for Sharp Objects too. I think I've been on it forever!!!!!

OH, finished 11/22/63. Loved it! I read the original ending online when I was finished and I'm so glad his son made him change it. I hated it! The current ending is so much better.

I just started The Twelve. It is the second in The Passage trilogy. So far, pretty darn good. It took 2 years for this sequel to come out so I am struggling a bit trying to rememeber the original charcters and story line

Finished Gone Girl over the weekend. LOVED IT even despite the ending!

I've gone back to reading Les Miserables (took a quick hiatus to read Gone Girl). Have about 100 pages left (approx. 1400 pages!!). It's been a long & sometimes hard read, but gosh, I cannot wait to see the film now!!

Have requested from the library:

Sharp Objects
Dark Places
The Book Thief
Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore
The Fiery Cross


Will read whatever comes in first. Hopefully, not all 5 at once... but that is usually what happens!

EDIT: Just checked my library website, 4 out of the 5 books just shipped, lol. Figures!!

I have the first one (I guess it is The Passage?) but I'm going to try to hold out on reading it until the last one comes out so I can read them one after the other. My memory is terrible when it comes to retaining characters and plot lines. I have a hard enough time just keeping up with the details in the current book I'm reading!

Just the basics:
Are two-year-olds too young to go to Disney? It depends upon their temperament. One way to find out: take them there. After all, they're only young for a short time. You're sure to enjoy your trip if you plan ahead! AND - don't forget those all-important dining reservations; they fill up so fast it's ridiculous. Have I forgotten anything? Oh yes - I'd advise you to carry a small purse or bag for loose items so you don't lose them on rides. You'll have a great vacation if you follow my advice!

Currently reading "Beautiful Ruins" for my book club. So far, it's holding my interest. I hope it picks up the pace, though. It reads a bit slow.

I'm also reading "Storybound". A YA book that my 10 year old daughter wanted me to read. Not stellar writing, but it's a fun plot.

My DH is reading that one. I just started reading the Passage last night after holding off for so long. I figure it's a great end of October book.

I'm waiting for some books to come from Amazon. I ordered Divergent, The Maze Runner, and Delirium.

There's one more currently out that goes back in time to explain what happened, or at least part of it.

He's also working on at least two more sequels to the Juliette story line too.

I really like these books. Not just the story but how he bucked the major publishing houses and became the first self published author with a #1 bestseller.

I just finished Leviathan Wakes and Caliban's War by James Corey. These are good edge of your seat sci-fi\horror thrillers. A little far fetched but entertaining and fast paced.
