I told my husband that I can’t wait until Friday because then we can put our Christmas tree up. Friday is November 1st. He looked at my like I had three heads and said we’re waiting until after Thanksgiving. And then of course, I pulled the “Teddy loves Christmas” card. So dear friends, we shall see. Thankfully I can still get really excited and get into the spirit subtly by reading holiday themed books. I find so much joy in getting up, grabbing a cup of coffee, and reading a few chapters from a book set during Christmas. Below are twenty five brand new holiday themed books from a variety of genres that I think will give you all those holly jolly feels.
1. The Christmas Dare by Lori Wilde

Then her best friend talks her into going on her “honeymoon” anyway, daring her to a “Christmas of Yes.” It’s about time she lets loose a little, so Kelsey agrees to say “yes” to fun, to romance, and to adventure! And adventure leads her right smack into the arms of sexy Noah MacGregor.
Noah’s never one to say no to a risk—from leading his NBA team to victory to making Christmas cookies in Twilight, he’s up to the challenge! But a lot has gone on since they were teenagers, and he knows he has to take his time to make Kelsey dare to believe that what they feel is more than just the holiday magic that’s in the air.

Now that she owns a successful taco truck in San Francisco and an apartment to call home, Ivy’s reinvented life is on solid ground. And she’s guarded against anything that can rock it. Like the realities of a past she’s worked hard to cover up. And especially Kel O’Donnell. Too hot not to set off alarms, he screams temporary. If only his whispers weren’t so delightfully naughty and irresistible.
Kel, an Idaho sheriff and ranch owner, is on vacay, but Ivy’s a spicy reason to give his short-terms plans a second thought. Best of all, she’s a tonic for his untrusting heart, burned once and still in repair. But when Ivy’s past intrudes on a perfect romance, Kel fears that everything she’s told him has been a perfect lie. Now, if only Ivy’s willing to share, Kel will fight for a true love story.
