Christmas always lights up imagination. Lots of writers, artists and filmmakers use this time of the year as a magical setting for great stories. Romance, comedy or mystery, the spirit of the season adds something special to any tale.

Go get a blanket and a hot chocolate, here are some suggestions to read or watch that will help you get in the mood for the holidays.

Here are some books you can get at the library:

Would you prefer movies? You can borrow these from the library as well. Actually you should watch “The Nightmare Before Christmas” at least once, or every year like I do. 🙂

With the heavily anticipated movie ‘The Maze Runner’ coming out September 19th why not get a head start and read the book before hand. If you loved the Divergent series and the Hunger Games then you should check out The Maze Runner by James Dashner.

Waking up in a lift, Thomas doesn’t remember anything but his name. Surrounding the Glade where Thomas and the other boys are lay stone walls that change in a maze pattern. No one gets in through the maze and no one has ever gotten out alive. This is until a girl arrives with a message.

Remember. Survive. Run.

The Maze Runner
