Connect Five – Christmas in July


I love Christmas and what better way to connect books than through this favourite holiday – and reading them in July as well! Connect 5 is hosted at Book Date and is such a fun reading challenge.

Once I read two,  I had to read several more. With ebooks I had a wide choice . Here are the 5 Christmas books I read this July, all lovely romance novels.

  1. I always think a Christmas book at any time of year is good. I spot a Tracey Alvarez book – she lives nearby about 40 min away in Wellington. I did read a few of her books early on but I haven’t read any of her more recent ones. Christmas in NZ is a lot warmer than many places although I think California would be warm enough and actually i did have one Christmas in LA.
