Christmas themed stories

Since it’s nearly Christmas, I thought I’d pull together some Christmas themed reviews from times-gone-past for you to peruse. I make no bones that most of these are romance novels, but in the lead up to Christmas, who wants to be thinking too hard, or has the time to spend on a heavier book?

    • I’ve never read any Dylan Thomas -gasp !- beyond the prescribed reading of the war poems in school. Just never someone who is on the radar to consider even this year. Perhaps the topic for a post or three for you? Welsh authors wot wrong more that poems and lived beyond 17?
