Faith 'n Fiction Saturdays ~ Christmas Books

Today for Faith 'n Fiction Saturday we're asked:

It's Christmas time and one of my favorite things to do is read Christmas themed books. Do you enjoy reading holiday themed books? Do you have any special book you read every year? Do you have a special devotional you like to use? (not fiction..I know!) Have you read any good Christmas books this year?

I actually haven't read many Christmas themed books (fiction or devotional). I have Cosmic Christmas by Max Lucado and that's about it. I really loved reading Engaging Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn this year and would love to get the first book. I could see that becoming a re-read. It's definitely got me more interested in Christmas books now that I know there are some non-cheesy ones out there. ;o)

So that's my short, sweet, to-the-point answer! Now I'm going to go check out what everyone else is saying so I can start a Christmas TBR pile!!

Feel free to join in by answering the question on your blog and then go to My Friend Amy's to post your link.


  1. I’m in the middle of Finding Father Christmas…first ever Christmas read for me!

  2. I have a couple of ideas on my post.

  3. Sounds good. Do you think that reading Engaging Father Christmas works as a stand alone?

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I think it's fine as a stand alone because she catches you up on the important stuff that had happened in the first book.

    I didn't feel lost or confused, but I felt like I was jumping in the middle of a conversation and had to be brought up to speed. And because I enjoyed it, I wished I'd read the first book first. Now when I read it I'll already know what happens. :o) But it's still on my list to get.

  5. I suggest you try some more Christmas themed books girl! Nothing like Christmas books to get you in the spirit :)

  6. If you liked Engaging Father Christmas, give the first book a try (Finding Father Christmas). I've also got a few more favorites I've read this year. Here's my answer!

  7. I enjoyed reading Engaging Father Christmas and Finding Father Christmas too.
