1. Frostbitten Fairy Tales by Melanie Karsak
Sooo, I just read a book by Melanie Karsak that was soooo good, so when I saw this fairytale retelling collection – set in Christmas! – I jumped on it!
2. Wicked Winters by various authors
Limited edition! So grab it now before they take it down. 😲😲😲
Melanie Karsak also has a story in this one, but with the promise of vampires, imps, ghosts, Krampus, and evil elves, I’m sure the stories in this collection are well worth your fantasty-loving time.
3. A Steampunk Christmas Carol by Angelique S. Anderson
Another story that’s part of a larger universe, but this cute tale can be read as a standalone. And retelling the Christmas Carol with dragons, steampunk, and the mysterious Immortal Ones? Classic.
4. A Fantasy Christmas: Tales from the Hearth by various authors
I featured this collection a few days ago, but I had to include it here, too. Obviously.
5. Wicked Descent by Scarlett Kol
6. 19 Marigold Lane by R.M. Gilmore
You’ll want to read book 1 first (17 Marigold Lane), but book two takes place in the holiday season. Bonus – if you like all the fall holidays, these two books cover it all!
You can read more about the series here: https://www.rmgilmore.com/prudence-penderhaus.html
7. The Last Bell by Lana Melyan
Another series you’ll have to wade through to get to the Christmas bit, but this is an episodic series. Perfect for boosting that reading list goal. 😉
Plus, can we say KU?
8. Our Christmas Nook by various authors
This one has various genres, but the stories are all short, for those who want a lot of holiday in a smaller time frame.
Also in KU (several of these books are, and I haven’t mentioned it everywhere, so make sure you check)!
9. A Christmas collection by Heather Karn
This collection goes a little more traditional, but I had to include it. It looked too cute, and goes all the way to Santa’s workshop in the North Pole. You can check her Christmas books out here: https://heatherkarn.com/christmas-collection/
10. A Shifter Under the Christmas Tree by M.L. Briers
Shifters and Christmas? Yep, couldn’t pass this one up.
11. Witches of Christmas Grove by Deanna Chase
So this one looks cute. Some paranormal Christmas romance, and if you like it, she has another book in the series coming out October of next year! I’m thinking this could turn into a yearly tradition…
12. Christmas Magic series by Alexandra Moody
How could I possibly pass up an entire magic Christmas series? I couldn’t. So here it is.
13. A Christmas at Pasidian Palace by S.L. Morgan
This cover is sooo pretty. This is an aside story in a larger world, but I just couldn’t resist.
14. A Very Mercy Christmas by M.Z. Andrews
Christmas and witches. Need I say more?
15. An Impish Christmas by Angel Leya
And if you like holiday romcoms, then you may just like An Impish Christmas, by yours truly. This is also set in a larger world, but can be enjoyed on its own, especially if you love shifters of all stripes.
16. Bonus! The Siren Prophecy trilogy
And of course, the Siren Prophecy trilogy in the Shifter Academy world spans the holiday season as well! So bonus.
