Book Review || Early Chirstmas

Hey everyone! Rebekah Morris is releasing eight Christmas story's, and I got to be a part of the blog tour!
Here's a look at all the books:

36434926About Christmas Eve at the Backdoor:

The Great Depression is in full swing, and Mrs. Kabrick hopes to make Christmas a special time for her children even though they don't have much. With the back door constantly opening and shutting, time flies bringing cold air, visitors, and a very special Christmas Eve.

My Review:

Admits a whole slew of Christmas books that are filled with magic and unexplained happenings, I can always count on Rebekah Morris to be down to earth. That doesn't mean her books are slow, goodness, this one never slowed down! 
I love the simplistic, yet sweet way everything that happened was portrayed. Back doors may seem like a simple thing, but in this book they mean so much more then just entry ways. I can't say to much without giving stuff away (After all, this is a really short book). But I loved it! It would be a great read-aloud book for kids. And there is a kitten in it, which makes it like five times more adorable. 
I still think At Christmas Lodge is my favorite of this authors Christmas books, but this one is super sweet.

36434895About A Christmas Disaster:

As the students of Coolidge High School prepare for their annual Christmas play, excitement mounts. Performed at the local theater, the play, with the students in complete charge of, the performances has become a tradition in town. Everything is going well until the morning of the final performance when calamity hits. Should the students cancel the final performance or try to turn the disaster into something good?

My Review:
Having been a part of a few small time plays and skits, I was excited to read this story. To me, this one felt a bit more disjointed then this authors other story's. But I enjoyed how the bustle of the theater was portrayed. The excitement and nervousness was captured really well. Overall, not one of this authors best story's, but still and enjoyable read.
