Our eighth day of giveaways is brought to you by Swept Away series author J.S. Cooper! To enter the contest, please leave a comment telling us your favorite memory of the holiday season!

Christmas carols.

Marshmallows roasting over an open fire.

The glittering lights on the Christmas tree. 

The sounds of children squealing in excitement.

The presents wrapped up all tight waiting to be opened. 

The cookies and milk waiting patiently to be sneakily eaten by Santa Claus. 

These are the memories that I conjure up when I think of Christmas Eve. The only missing ingredient from this magical night is the moment I get to snuggle up on the couch with a new book. Every year, I go to the bookstore and choose five books that I allow myself to savor during the holidays. It’s my gift to myself and it never gets old. Settling in with a new book surrounded by warmth and love is what makes me warm and cozy inside. It’s when I really and truly feel that the Christmas spirit has entered me. 

Today’s giveaways are:
