Books to Read by the Fire | Top 5 Wednesday [18]


Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.

This week’s topic is Top 5 Books to Read by the Fire.

I am not the biggest holiday book reader when it comes to novels. But I do have the fondest memories of children’s Christmas books. So this week I will be showing you which ones are my favorite from my childhood. I hope you enjoy!

5. How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss


This has to be a classic in many people’s childhoods.

4. The Smallest Gift of Christmas by Peter H. Reynolds


This one is not from my childhood, but I got the opportunity to read it to my niece and nephew a year back and absolutely loved it. And so did they!

3. Harold and the North Pole by Crockett Johnson


I love all of Harold’s adventures with his purple crayon, so his trip to the North Pole is no surprise!

2. A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles M. Schulz


Probably one of the saddest but cutest Christmas stories out there! Who doesn’t love poor Charlie Brown?

1. The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg


I love the book, I love the movie. Plus my dad works for the Canadian National Railroad, so it made this one that much more special for me!

I hope you enjoyed my Top 5 Wednesday this week. So grab one of these books, curl up by the fire (if you have one of course), with some tea and a blanket. I love enjoying the nostalgic feelings I get when reading these!

Until next time,

Sig New

  1. Great way to include children’s books! I got to purchase books for a child for the first time in awhile this holiday season and it made me so happy! My dad’s new girlfriend has a 4 year old niece. It’s fun to remember what books were so important to us at that age!

  2. I love the Polar Express! It’s such a fun book to read with little kids. And the movie is good, too! I can finally watch it again. It was my daughter’s favorite movie when she was two. We had to watch it over and over for a year. The Polar Express in July is just not as magical as in December. 😉
