Spotlight On | Winter Reads ’15

With schools, colleges and even work places shutting for the festive season of Christmas, we often find ourselves bored or with little to do. The TV channels only show repeats or Christmas movies you’ve already seen a thousand times, and you have no where to turn.

Well look no further! These four stunning Christmas reads come from me to you as a present this joyful season. Most of these are from my favourite book website of all – Wattpad! Don’t be put off by the stigma around the website – believe it or not, it’s thriving with would-be authors if you look hard enough.
