A Beginner’s Guide To Christmas, Jennifer Joyce – A Review.

Hello bookworms, I’ve got another of my festive reviews to share with you again so here we goooo!

A Beginner’s Guide To Christmas by Jennifer Joyce.

Overall rating ❄️❄️❄️ out of 5 snowflakes.

Oh my goodness, this book was hilarious! I really did enjoy reading it.

Christmas time is traditionally very stressful and I feel a lot of us (me included) try to gloss over this when we share our Christmas photos online, which is the complete opposite of what A Beginner’s Guide To Christmas does.

Ruth complains, a lot, about what she has to undergo on Christmas day when she just wants to chill but I found that quite endearing, and led me to love Ruth as a character. And with the whole book written for us in Ruth’s POV it just solidified that love I had for her.

As the book was from Ruth’s POV we got these little comments and remarks that were quite sarcastic and snide (the kind of things we’ve all thought about whilst preparing for Christmas) and they truly had me laughing my socks off at points!

The family dynamics presented to us in A Beginner’s Guide To Christmas also worked really well for this book and just served to remind me of my own family.

My real disappointment though came at the end of the book, I felt the author rounded the story up too quickly and left a few lose ends, just an extra few pages would have finished this off so much better…

On the whole, I did really enjoy reading A Beginner’s Guide To Christmas and it gave me some much needed laughs! I only wish it was a little bit longer and the ending was wrapped up better.

Until next time, Em xxx
