Can someone recommend a good Christmas book to read? I've seen so many but they're mostly all cutey romance. I'd like to find a nice fiction...any ideas?

I liked John Grisham's Skipping Christmas: A Novel - it's a bah humbug kind of story about a family fed up with all the stress of Christmas and vowing not to do the usual celebration/hoopla. Very funny for the most part, gets more serious towards the end...I've also heard good things about David Baldacci's Christmas Train but haven't had a chance to read it yet.

If you like English country-house, golden era type mysteries, I'd also recommend Georgette Heyer's Envious Casca (Inspector Hemingway).
And David Sedaris' Holidays on Ice is hysterical.

I understand the temptation to rec your own book on such a thread, but you really aren't supposed to.

If you don't object to Anne Perry, she writes a Christmas historical mystery novella every year. See: An Anne Perry Christmas: Two Holiday Novels (The Christmas Stories).

You're right - a lot of the Christmas theme books are romances. I like these two:

Winter Solstice
a redbird Christmas

They aren't quite as "romance-y" as the stuff by Debbie Macomber, etc.

I am also a big fan of Dicken's Christmas Carol and Dylan Thomas's A Child's Christmas in Wales. The former is more of a novella, and the latter is really a short story, but it's awesome.

Good luck!

Being that I have the OP on ignore for shilling, I'm not surprised that a shill rec would show up. Coincidence?

But we can still talk about Dylan Thomas, right? Because he was the chit.

You can maybe give The Stupidest Angel (v2.0) (Pine Cove) a try!

Recently read and quite enjoyed Yearly Harvest Not for everyone but I liked the characters and found it an intriguing idea.

"The Christmas Chronicles" by Tim Slover or "The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus" by L.Frank Baum. If you like a mystery you might want to try " A Wee Christmas Mystery" by Kaitlyn Dunnett.

STOP SPAMMING YOUR BOOK!

This is why I gave up on the KBF. Thought I'd give it another go, but nope, still the same old spam. Yawn.

A Different Kind of Christmas is not available on kindle, but it is worth the read. I read every few years during the holidays.

My favorite so far - Claus, Legend of the fat man. No romance, but really great fiction. Did you know that Santa and Jack Frost were twins?
