Hi all!

Welcome to Blogmas day 22! We’re so close to Christmas, how exciting!

Today, I’m bringing you The Christmas Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt! I saw this over on Emma @ Turn Another Page‘s blog and it just looks like so much fun, I had to do it too.

A book set during Christmas

The first book that came to mind was A Christmas Carol because I’m so unoriginal.

Find five books that have ‘cold’ words in the title

So the rules for this prompt is to choose books that remind you of the cold because Christmas is during winter in the Northern Hemisphere. Down here, it’s summer so I can’t relate to this at all but anyway …

Obviously In Cold Blood and Before the Coffee Gets Cold both have the word ‘cold’ in their titles, while the remaining books all feature something to do with the cold, in my opinion at least.

A red and green book cover

How lucky this great book has both red and green on the cover 🙌🏼

A character with a festive name

This one was so hard to choose! The main character’s name is Holly which is a plant, usually associated with Christmas.

Find a festive object

The closest I have on my bookshelf is a little pumpkin! I love it

A book with baking in it

This cute graphic novel features a former ice skater who plays hockey at college while also having his own baking Youtube series!

Even though I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I thought I would, you have to admit the cover is beautiful!

A book cover with silver and gold


The only one I could think of was Prince’s Gambit! I’m pretending the grey is silver haha.

A book that was a gift
