Six free holiday and winter-wonderland books to read

written by Betsy Flak on 2018-12-17

Today, I have even more free books for you! These ones are all winter- or holiday-themed, perfect to get you in the spirit. :)

As you might imagine, there aren't a ton of holiday-themed books out there. So, I had to drop my typical criteria of at least 4.3 stars over 50+ reviews. But I checked out the descriptions and tried to find a little something for everyone. And hey, the books are free, so why not check them out?

Make sure to check the price before you buy. As always, prices are subject to change!
