Christmas Book Recommendation: Skipping Christmas

Many of you might have seen the movie “Christmas with the Kranks.” What you may not know is that it was based on a book called Skipping Christmas by John Grisham.

The book is quite similar to the movie—Luther and Nora Krank realize that they spend over $6,000 on Christmas a year and decide to skip the holiday and go on a cruise instead. Hilarity ensues when their daughter Blair comes home for the holiday with her fiancé.

I actually read this book a couple of years before the movie came out—I must have been a freshman in high school. I borrowed it from my mom one day when I was looking for something to read. To be completely honest, I don’t remember enough details to make this a long review. I do remember enjoying the book though and I do rewatch the movie every year.

If you are looking for something festive to read for the holidays, I suggest you try this book.
