What To Read This Christmas?

Christmas for me is always a time I like to chill out, sit next to the Christmas tree, with all the lights on and the rest of the lights off and just read a really good book. I love the coloured lights on the page, and this year I have my Kindle Paperwhite, so no light required necessarily, but still! Here are just a few of the books that I intend to read over this Christmas, some I've read before, so they're more recommendations, but some I've never read...

Hogfather by Terry Pratchett.
I've read this book so many times now, I love it. I think it's my favourite book of Terry's that I've read so far, I haven't read them all yet, I'm working on it, but of those I have read, Hogfather is pure genius. A festive addition, one that feeds on believes. I had thought that I reviewed this last year when I read it this time last year, but apparently I didn't, so that'll be up in the next few weeks!

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Okay, confession time. I have never read The Hobbit! Nor have I read any of the Lord of the Rings books. Scandalous  I know, but it is something I want to correct. I loved the LOTR films, and am looking forward to seeing The Hobbit too, but I wanted to read it first, so that's what I plan to do!
Christmas Tales of Terror by Chris Priestley.
I'm not normally a fan of scary stuff, and mixing it with Christmas sounds a horrid idea, but this little ebook of Horror sounds awesome! Killer snowmen! I'm there! 
Undone by Cat Clarke.
I am so excited for this one. I love Cat and her first two books, Entangled and Torn, so cannot wait for this to download to my Kindle when I wake up on 20th December! It's not actually out in paperback till the end January, so download it is!

Lost Christmas by David Logan.
I had meant to read this last year, I bought it on my Kindle and read lots of amazing things about it, and the TV adaptation that aired last year. I missed the film and part of me wanted to read the book first, but I just never got around to it. This year though, I intend to read it, and pretty soon too! I love the cover and the story itself just sounds fantastic...

So what are you guys intending to read this Christmas? Anything good? Anything I've missed out that you think I should check out? Let me know!
