Today we have this brilliant fuzzy read, I loved this brilliant feel good Christmas read from the first few pages. It can be read as a follow up from the previous books in the series or as a stand alone book.

It is a book all about the best elements of Christmas, being surrounded by fantastic people, gorgeous food and a festive snowy setting.

This book will make anyone feel Christmassy, warm and fuzzy no matter what the weather outside. A brilliant book to read in the countdown to Christmas and left me feeling all warm and fuzzy!

Day 6 No-one Ever Has Sex on Christmas Day by Tracy Bloom

I read this last year and laughed throughout so thought it would be a fab book to share for Day 6!
A lovely feel good read, which is perfect to curl up with in the lead up to Christmas.

I laughed whilst reading as Allison’s behaviour reminded me of parents I have encountered in the playground and I related to Katy feeling the guilt of being a working Mum and being pressured into making decisions that affect her whole family. There is a lovely variety of characters in this book that you feel you know and become invested in their journey in the lead up to the Christmas Nativity.

If you fancy a nice light hearted read to make you laugh out loud then I would definitely recommend this!

Book Blurb

Don’t you always plan the perfect Christmas?
Don’t you always think it will be the best one ever?
And doesn’t something – usually one of your loved ones – always come along and screw it up?

Katy’s been spending too much time in the office and not enough time with her family so she wants it all: snow (fake or real), the Michael Bublé Christmas album, whatever it takes.

There’s only one thing missing as far as her husband Ben is concerned: another baby to complete their family. Katy isn’t so sure…

Ben may be playing the role of Master Elf in the pre-school nativity but he is struggling to master his own family life. With romantically-challenged friends, an ex who refuses to go away and Katy’s mum’s 64-year-old toy boy thrown into the mix, Christmas looks like it could be going off the rails… Never mind family planning, can Katy and Ben even plan to make it to the end of Christmas Day?
