My favorite moments of the holiday season are those small seconds of stillness in between hustle and bustle. The twinkling of lights, the hush after everyone falls asleep, the cold windows in the morning. Those moments are best shared with a book, of course, as we can always find time to read, even in this busy season. If you are a fan of cozy winter tales, with plenty of meet cutes and happy endings, the first half of this list is for you. If you lean more toward the Grinch before his heart grew three sizes, the second half of the list is all yours. There is hilarity to be found in those honest tales of holiday chaos. Either way, grab yourself a hot mug, find a cozy spot, and get into the holiday spirit with these great reads.
