This may well be the only Christmas book I read this season, and of so I am glad I chose this one. I loved every single story, though of course I had a few favorites.
The Snowmama, a magical heartwarming story with a wonderful message.
The Mistletoe Bride, a gothic tale of well deserved revenge.

It's Jeanette Winterson, people. I could read her shopping list and still be a happy reader. In Christmas Days we have her impeccable style and stories about Christmas. What could go wrong? If you just replied ''nothing'', you are correct.
Jeanette Winterson offers us 12 stories and 12 recipes for...

This is a physically beautiful collection of a dozen (for the twelve days of Christmas) new short stories, alternating with a dozen pieces about food (each ending with a recipe), all with a Christmas or winter theme, topped and tailed with an introduction and a Christmas message. I use, but don’t...

This was an impulse buy. I was standing at the counter in my local bookshop ready to pay for my other purchases when I saw this beautiful looking book. I had to pick it up. The cover was just so tactile; a beautiful woven cloth hardback with gorgeous silver pickups. How could I resist???

I am not generally a Christmas book reader, or Christmas special watcher, mainly because I find the majority of these are a little too sappy for my tastes.

A very unusual Christmas book. Winterson loves Christmas for its reflection, ritual, love and community . The recipes in the book are less about putting on a holiday show and more about how food can help make Christmas (and life) merrier and brighter. The stories are all designed to raise the gho...

For the most part I enjoyed all of these stories. My favourites were The Snowmama, Christmas in New York, Christmas Cracker and The Lion, the Unicorn and Me. They were just cute with a great hint of Christmas magic. I didn't like Dark Christmas, it was way too haunted for me and actually...

I'm always looking for a new Christmas read and this is a book with a beautiful cover. 12 stories and 12 feasts for 12 days says the cover. Her stories are bold, and her recipes um uninspiring. All in all I think I'm used to more traditional tales and fare.

I decided to purchase Christmas Days for three reasons: firstly, it is festive; secondly, it is beautiful in itself; and thirdly, it was written by one of my favourite contemporary authors. Rather than read it all in one go as I would ordinarily, I chose to approach it in a slightly different way...
