Books to Read Based on Your Favourite Christmas Songs

If you love ‘Last Christmas’

I would recommend Persuasion by Jane Austen. This story is all about a lost love, who returns in the main character – Anne’s – life a very different man.

If you love ‘Step Into Christmas’

I would recommend The Toymakers by Robert Dinsdale. This magical realism novel set in the Edwardian era of London, follows two brothers and their magical toyshop that is only open in the coldest months of winter. When the first snowdrop forms the shop closes. It truly feels like stepping into Christmas.

If you love ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’

I would recommend A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Ebenezer Scrooge needed the reminder more than any other character in literature about the wonders of Christmas.

If you love ‘Driving Home for Christmas’

I would recommend The Odyssey by Homer. This is a story all about a man trying to get home, but being diverted for ten years.

If you love ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’

I would recommend Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. The four sisters lament their lack of presents but they do love Christmas and the joy it brings.

If you love ‘Fairytale of New York’

I would recommend Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Leviathan. Set in New York City, this sweet young adult romance follows Dash and Lily as they task each other with fun and adventurous dares just before Christmas in their beloved city.
