Christmas with Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher

Title: Christmas with Billy and Me
Author: Giovanna Fletcher
Published: 6th November 2014
Publisher: Penguin


This was exactly the type of Christmas book that I love to read at Christmas. It made me feel all warm and cosy and very festive. You can definitely tell that Giovanna loves Christmas as it came across so well in Christmas with Billy and Me.

Also how gorgeous is the cover?! So utterly gorgeous, it has that pick me up now feel to it and really stands out.

Even though this was just a short story, there were still little poignant words of wisdom in it that I really loved. This one especially stood out: "Every now and then, silence is best, for it speaks louder than any vowel, consonant or syllable ever could". I just thought that was so true and it slightly choked me up a bit which is unusual for me.

A really lovely festive short story to cosy up to around Christmas time.

  1. Always nice to read a short story and this one definitely looks perfect for the festive time of year. I read Billy & Me a while back and liked it! Might have to read this one too!
