Hi, friends! Welcome to my stop on The 12 Days of Holly Chase Blog Tour hosted by Your Book Travels! I’m so excited to share this book with you! Also, please don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win a Christmas Prize Pack at the end of this post. 🙂
Because The Afterlife of Holly Chase is a spin on the classic, A Christmas Carol, I thought it’d be fun to share some books based on the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future!
Ghost of Christmas Past: Historical Fiction
Coincidentally my favorite historical fiction (with a magical twist!) is My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows! I love this story based on Lady Jane Grey (the Nine Days Queen.) It is riddled with humor (think Monty Python), adventure, romance, and perfect for fans of the Tudor dynasty.
Ghost of Christmas Present: Contemporary Fiction
I’ve recently become an Alice Oseman fan and I just adore her writing. Her characters are so lovable and she knows how to write a heartwarming story while still tackling serious, relevant topics. Solitaire follows a cynical girl who stumbles upon a mysterious blog. I think this would be perfect for Rainbow Rowell fans!
Ghost of Christmas Future: Sci-Fi
I cannot recommend this series by Neal Shusterman enough! Scythe follows a perfect world where there is no more disease, war, or death. In order to control the population, people known as Scythes have one job to do: select people to kill off. It’s morbid, but such a fun page-turner!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog tour! And don’t forget to enter the amazing giveaway below!
About the Book
“On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly was visited by three ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she’d become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways.
And then she died.
Now she’s stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge–as the latest Ghost of Christmas Past.
Every year, they save another miserly grouch. Every year, Holly stays frozen at seventeen while her family and friends go on living without her. So far, Holly’s afterlife has been miserable.
But this year, everything is about to change. . . .”
