2016 HoHoHo Read-a-thon: My Goals

Posted November 7, 2016 by Lillian in Challenges / 5 Comments

It’s that time of year again….you know the one where there are parties for hosting, marshmallows for toasting and caroling out in the snow ?ย Ok so maybe no snow yet but I am definitely getting into the holiday spirit which means my reading list changes a bit. I don’t know what it is about this time of the year but my usual reads of sci-fi and fantasy are put to the side in favor of sweet (think Hallmark movie sweet) romance, the kind that I could see myself reading in front of a fire, sipping hot chocolate and playing footsie with my sweetie…you know if I had a fireplace to sit in front of that is ๐Ÿ˜‰ SO I say all this to say that Kimba @ the Caffeinated Book Reviewer is hosting the Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon again this year November 9th-15th and I’mย super excited to participate again!

My Goal

The readathon is a few days longer this year than last year so I plan to read 5 books from my backlist TBR. Last year I picked up a ton of Christmas-themed freebies on my Kindle and if you’ve noticed on my Sunday Posts the last month or so I’ve picked up a few more. SO I have several books to choose from. Here are the books I plan to choose from and if possible read them all:

Book Cover for "A Lancaster County Christmas" by Suzanne Woods FisherBook Cover for "A Miracle Mountain Christmas" by Ciara KnightBook Cover for "Cowboy, It's Cold Outside" by Katherine GarberaBook Cover for "Firefly" by Jen Milkman

Book Cover for "A Christmas Gift" by Stella WilkinsonBook Cover for "Home for Christmas" by Melissa McCloneBook Cover for "The Trouble with Christmas" by Debbie MasonBook Cover for "It Happened at Christmas" by Debbie Mason

Home For Christmas
really liked it
Home for Christmas is the first book Iโ€™ve read from author Melissa McClone and it wonโ€™t be the last! Set in the hills of Montana on a ranch, this holiday story unfolds in the best possible way with gingerbread, snow and mistletoe.


chick-lit, contemporary, short-story, feel-good, and hohoho-readath…
