Looking for a great book with plenty of Christmas cheer? Check out my book review of Samantha Silva’s Mr. Dickens and His Carol.
Summery: Facing waning book sales, fickle fans, and mounting debts, Charles Dickens was feeling anything but merry. His publishers believe that a new book for Christmas will turn the tide but the holiday is only a few weeks away and Dickens is feeling downright Scrooge-ish and has a bad case of writers block to boot. It will take a very special muse to help Dickens make piece with the ghosts of his past and write a classic book that will endure for many Christmases yet to be.
My Thoughts: A fun, light-hearted read for the holidays, Mr. Dickens and His Carol is a highly fictionalized version of how Dickens’ A Christmas Carol came to be written. Perfect for enjoying with a cup of cocoa by a cozy fire, this festive holiday book is a great addition to your Christmas reading list.
