Oh Christmas Books, Oh Christmas Books!

I only read two Christmas books this year, and I am sorry to say, I did not really enjoy either of them.  I am doing a little combined review post for both of them.

Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright
The short tale of a woman so caught up in her quest to write the perfect story and become the best journalist, that she almost misses the delights of giving when she meets a family with a very unique Christmas tradition.

Christmas Jars

I know lots of people loved this book, but I found it a little bit too cheesy for me.  I honestly groaned a few times at the most predictable and corny parts.  The idea behind Christmas jars and giving was really lovely, but I simply found all the writing and story around it to be too much for me.

Secrets of a Christmas Box by Steven Horby (review copy provided by publisher)
When Larry, a snowman ornament, wakes up on the Christmas tree and can't find his brother, he sets off with his friends on a dangerous mission to find him.  But, they may uncover a dreadful secret that changes all their lives.

Secrets of a Christmas Box

I really struggled to even finish this one.  The writing was very trite, with over-simplified wording and extremely aggravating punctuation (the ellipses really got to me).  The story might make a cute little read-aloud to very young children, but I didn't really enjoy any of it.

What are some of your favorite Christmas books?
