This week's topic is: Top Ten Holiday Books
I don't have ten items on my list this week, simply because I don't have many particular books that I like to read around Christmas. I have a list of 6 books (and movies) that I do read/watch every year during Christmas time.
Here they are:
1. The Nightmare before Christmas by Tim Burton: I love this booklet and I read it every December, at least once. Then, I watch the animated movie by the same name and listen to the soundtrack written by Danny Elfman.
2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss: A must-read in December.
3. Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytales: especially "The Snow Queen" and "The Fir Tree". I used to read them with my grandpa and now I curl up on our couch and have my alone time with these stories.
4. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux: it might seem strange, but I feel like reading this book (or at least my favourite chapters) around Christmas.
5. Home Alone 1 (movie): I watch this movie every single year around Christmas, if not on Christmas day itself. And I mean it, every single year.
6. Edward Scissorhands (movie): another December/Christmas classic for me.
