Friday Favorites – Holiday Books

I’ve really missed doing Friday Favorites, and since no one was currently hosting it, Cait @ Functionally Fictional decided to jump into the gap. Each week, she provides a prompt, and I get to talk about my favorite books that fit the topic. Feel free to join in – the more the merrier!

As someone who celebrates Chanukah, it’s only in recent years that I’ve found holiday books that actually focus on my holiday (and aren’t geared towards children only). Even so, there aren’t many yet. Here’s some of my favorite holiday books:

  1. Eight Nights of Flirting by Hannah Reynolds — I just read this one and have a review coming up tomorrow. It’s YA and it’s so sweet and fluffy and adorable.
  2. The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer — this one came out last year and it was an immediate favorite. It also features a character with chronic illness and the representation was absolutely perfect.
  3. Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric A. Kimmel — this one is a kids book, but it’s amazing!
  4. It’s a Whole Spiel: Love, Latkes, and Other Holiday Stories edited by Katherine Locke and Laura Silverman — this is a collection of short stories, but I loved it!
  5. Recommended for You by Laura Silverman — this YA book was another instant favorite, and really put Laura Silverman on my list of favorite authors.

Yep, that’s all I got. Let me know if there’s more that I’ve missed!
