3 Books I Want to Read Over Christmas Break

Hi there! When you read this I will be winging my way across the world back home to England. The Fall semester has finished and I couldn’t be happier. ๐Ÿ˜€ Don’t get me wrong – I absolutely love school. However, I am very ready for a break, and I’m even more ready to spend that break with my family (4 months is too long to be separated!). 

Apart from having some quality family time, I’m also very much looking forward to getting some reading time in. I’ve had very minimal time this past semester for pleasure reading, and so it’s time to stock up! ๐Ÿ˜€ I have a 10 hour flight home so that means plenty of time to read to start my break off with. Today I thought I would share with you three books that are on my TBR list this Christmas break. 


the great divorce
The Great Divorce – C.S Lewis

I’ve had the pleasure of reading The Screwtape Letters by Lewis twice over the past few months. It’s an absolutely genius book, and has definitely whetted my appetite to read more of his works. A friend from college has lent me his copy of The Great Divorce, and I’m super excited to dive into it! 


i capture the castle
I Capture the Castle – Dodie Smith

A dear friend of mine gifted me this book right before I left England to head to school this past August. I wanted to bring it with me, but sadly luggage space was limited and so I had to leave it behind. I’m excited to get my hands on it as soon as I arrive home and to jump into this delightfully vintage story. I’ve heard many good things about it! 


the tennant of wildfell hall
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall – Anne Bronte

This book is on my list because of a recommendation by another bookish friend. We had coffee together the other week and while there she thoroughly sold me on the plot and message of this book. I’m always looking to read more classics, and I have a feeling that I’m going to enjoy this one! 


I don’t actually know how much time I will have to read while home, but I’m going to try my best to fit in some/all of these books! If not – well, there’s always the plane ride home… ๐Ÿ˜€

What books are on your Christmas TBR list? Have you read any of the three I referenced above? Let’s chat books in the comments!

  1. I have seen the movie based on โ€The Tenant of Wildfell Hallโ€ but never read it. Olivia loves the story! I look forward to your review. The Great Divorce I’ve heard of, naturally, but also never read. I Capture the Castle sounds intriguing. Is it a YA or adult novel? I want to hear about that one, two. Hmmmmm. I have three on my TBR list: Of Fire and Lions (Andrews), The Curse of Misty Wayfair ((Wright) and Finding Lady Enderly (Politano). Oh, that there were more hours in a day!โ˜บ๏ธ Please say hello to your family for the Del Boccios!๐Ÿ’—
