Book review: A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg #bookreview #fannieflagg #christmasbooks #chicklitbooks #booktwt #bookaddict #booktwitter

Challenge prompt: Christmas books
Originally published: 2004

Pages: 240
Format: Hardcover

Plot from GoodReads:

When Oswald moves to the sleepy little town of Lost River he’s not expecting to make friends – but one by one the eccentric inhabitants win his heart.

There’s his landlady Betty who’s a force to be reckoned with, Roy who runs the local store and secretly nurses a broken heart, Patsy the little abandoned girl he takes under his wing and, most importantly, Jack the redbird who brings the sort of miracle that can only happen at Christmas…


As the title suggests, the book is about a little bird and Christmas. A little bird that saves a lot of ‘lost‘ people in a small town.

Each character in the book brought their own special piece to the story, as different as they all were, to put the pieces together. So much can be learnt from allowing yourself to care for others and letting others take care of you, even when you don’t believe you need it.

A cozy Christmas read that I expected a somber tone from judging by how sad the book started out but the sweetness just kept spreading with each page turn and it was intoxicating to get lost in it.

The ending was too perfect, which I’m not a huge fan of as I like to see myself as a realist when it comes to how life works, but I’ll give it to this book. The ending was deserving! Each character deserved that Christmas miracle.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 3.92 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.
