Holiday Reading

The holidays have always been dominated by what I call ‘fun reading.’  This is due to being in college for pretty much the last ten years.  The majority of my years were normally spent reading tedious research texts, so the end of the fall semester always meant I could read WHATEVER I WANT!

This is my first year out of school and I am still just as excited about my holiday reading!  And yes, just like in October, I tend to stick to certain themes during November and December.  So without further ado…here is what you have to look forward to in the coming weeks!!

1. Rex Stout – Nero Wolfe Mysteries


Timothy Hutton and Maury Chaykin as Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolfe in the A&E series.

I have been a Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin fan since the A&E A Nero Wolfe Mystery series debuted back in 2000.  I was heartbroken when it ended after only a few seasons but it got me hooked on the books.  Be prepared to hear all about  the eccentric investigative genius and his cheeky right-hand man, Archie Goodwin.  You’ll also hear about the show because my mom, my husband, and I binge watch the entire series every December 😀

2. Sue Henry – Jessie Arnold Mysteries

I only started reading these stories when I moved to Florida.  The holidays were fast approaching and it was a warm winter year.  I needed a book that invoked images of a cold, white Christmas and I stumbled on Sue Henry’s books at the local library.  The stories follow professional dog-sled racer, Jessie Arnold, as she reluctantly solves mysteries in Alaska.  I just couldn’t put them down as I was spent away in the Alaskan wilderness.  I usually revisit my favorites every year!

So that’s what you have to look forward to, plus many more!  What are your favorite holiday reads?  Please share; I love to hear about the books you love.
