Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-thon

HoHoHo Holiday Read-a-Thon

The digs on the read-a-thon from one of the blogs hosting it:

Jennifer @ Bawdy Book Blog and I[Kimberly] adore holiday themed books. Whether it’s the covers, or the tales of good tidings they put us in the holiday spirit. We wanted to share that with you. So grab your pile of holiday themed books and sign-up to join us November 7th to 11th for a holiday themed read-a-thon, filled with challenges, good cheer and maybe some Figgy pudding! The challenges will be festive and give you a chance to win some holiday cheer for yourself! Join for one day, just the weekend or the entire event. Read as many holiday related books from your YA, NA and Adult collections as you can. Participating in challenges, spreading the news, following hosts and reading will all earn you entries for the grand prize- a twenty dollar gift-card from B&N or Amazon to fill your stocking with!

I'll read at least 2(I hope it's more tough) books from this list and more from my TBR that aren't holiday themed:

Marry Christmas (Christmas, #1) by Jane Goodger

- A Christmas Scandal (Christmas, #2) by Jane Goodger

- His Mistletoe Bride by Vanessa Kelly

- Christmas in Snowflake Canyon  by RaeAnne  Thayne

Merry and Bright  by Jill Shalvis

A Grosvenor Square Christmas anthology

Vision in White (Bride Quartet, #1) by Nora Roberts

Holiday Bound by Beth Kery

Tis the Season to Be Sinful by Adrienne Basso

Christmas Beau by Mary Balogh
