What a pleasant surprise this holiday novella was! I’ve never read anything by Molly Harper before this, but I just added pretty much all of her books to my TBR list, especially ones from this series.

This book follows a human named Gigi who has a vampire for a sister, and a slue of vampire and werewolf friends. There are also a few humans thrown into the mix. It makes for a very interesting holiday. Being in Gigi’s head was just laugh out loud funny. I adored her. This was such an easy

I’m Dreaming of an Undead Christmas is #2.7 in the Sleepy Hollow series by Molly Harper. I need to admit here that I have not read the previous books in this series. I am a HUGE Molly Harper fan so when I saw this book offered on NetGalley I jumped at the chance to read it. It didn’t take me long at all to piece together the details of the previous books. I do plan, though, to go back and read the them because now I will also need to see what happens next!

Gigi is coming home for Christmas, first time since Iris has turned, and Iris is fretting over making it normal for her.

Gigi is home from college and her life is on the cusp of change. First, Ophelia wants to hire her for the counsel (vampires) but once you start working for them you can’t quit. Big decision there. Also, Gigi is thinking about ending things with her longtime high school boyfriend, Ben, but she can’t bring herself to do it. They have a close relationship but it feels more like f

This was a fun Christmas novella with the undead residences of " Half-Moon Hallow Series . Gigi Scanlon comes home to Half Moon Hollow after being away for 3 yrs at college, Iris now a vampire want's everything perfect for Gigi's homecomeing and Christmas so she sets out to have a "old fashioned traditional family Christmas" with a little help from her HMH friends.

I think this is setting us up for HMH book #3 since a new vampire was simi-introduced and has been watching GiGi from afar. Looking f

4 Stars for this fun freebie!

Nothing screams Christmas like vampires!! Well...maybe not...but just because you're undead doesn't mean you've lost that holiday spirit. Having the Half-Moon Hollow gang together for some Christmas cheer was a blast. I love them all, but Dick Cheney is fast becoming my favorite character in this series. His gift to Jane was hysterical!

Not a whole heck of a lot of story, but I don't think that was the point, just some fun stuff from Molly Harper for fans of the seri

Cute short Christmas tale with recipes for a happy undead holiday meal with your living friends. This was my first taste of this series and it left me hanging and really wanting to know who the blond mystery man was. I really liked the humor and romance the way it was written. I am on my way to know more about Gigi and her blond romeo in the next book.

This is the second half-book I've read in the Half-Moon Hollow series (and oddly, they were both #'s 2.5... Not sure how THAT works, but, whatever). I haven't read any of the actual series though.

The first one I'd read was Undead Sublet, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. I thought that the characters had interesting personalities and chemistry, and the story was fun and quite humorous.

This one... well, it did not come even close to being as enjoyable. There were some funny parts which had me laugh

So it was fun to see all the characters "living" (or not living) in Half Moon Hollow. I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas is a character reunion of all the characters from the Jane Jamison series by Molly Harper and the Half Moon Hollow series. Many authors do holiday reunion books, most are fun and almost all do not add any substance to the series. I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas is no different in those respects, but the author and publisher have made the audio book version is free on audi ...more

This was more of a 3.75 star, not quite a 4-star.

this is Novella was both Gigi's story and a Christmas in the Half-Moon Hollows story. It's been 3 years since she went off to college. She is still dating Ben, although they've hit a rut, and she is coming home from the first time since Iris followed through on her promise to Cal. Both sisters are a little nervous, but it is obvious these sisters missed each other.

I loved this story. I love how Cal has really taken to his role as "man in the house

This was a very enjoyable story. It's not a full story but more of a holiday short that lets us Molly Harper fans see our favorite characters for Christmas and get some of Gigi's story.

This story is told from the PoV of Gigi, Iris' (from The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires) younger sister who has been away at college. Iris turned vampire while Gigi was away (a planned turning) but has been very nervous of attacking her and so Gigi hasn't been home in months, finally getting to come hom

It's kind of hard to know where to put this audiobook. It's a Christmas present from Molly Harper to her fans and is a bit like A Muppet Family Christmas. It really is just a parade of characters from the Half Moon Hollow universe.

For what it is it works very well. It's a cute and free novella, in which the fans get to catch up with their favourite characters and get a little intro into what will presumably be the next story in the series. If I was just rating this book on its merits, I'd proba

I’m Dreaming of an Undead Christmas is a lovely holiday novella set in the Half-Moon Hollow series. The story is told from the first person POV of Gigi, sister to Iris, the main character of the first full-length book, The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires. Gigi is home on holiday break from the University of Kentucky, and it is first time seeing her big sister since Iris became a vampire.

Fans of Ms. Harper’s Half-Moon Hollow series will enjoy this story, and while it can be read as a stand alo

Molly Harper is known for her romance novels, including a couple of paranormal romance series. This fun little novella is the prequel to a novel to be released in 2015, The Dangers of Dating a Rebound Vampire. When I saw the book cover for I’m Dreaming of an Undead Christmas, I couldn’t resist finding out more but I was concerned it might be a book in the middle of a series I hadn’t read.

It is part of the Half-Moon Hollow series, which has included at least two prior books about the main charac

Christmas and Vampires. A natural combination.

I love novellas as part of a series. They can fill in stories that the writer wasn't able to use as part of the main plot line. Or, they can just be a fun add-on like this one. The good news is that you don't always have to read the full series before hand. I hadn't read any of these books but was able to follow along and enjoy this one just fine. Now that I've been properly introduced to the characters I can't wait to read all of them.

I'm not sure what happened here...I was enjoying a pretty classic Molly Harper storyline, and next thing you know, it was, like, over. I realize this is a novella, but even for a novella, this one not only was cut exceptionally short, it ended abruptly...leaving me a bit confused as to what happened. I've read the Undead Sublet, another novella by Molly Harper, and quite enjoyed it. In fact, it was my first introduction to her work. And, this one seemed to be heading in a similar direction (alth ...more

Another free on Audible.

I like that this references my alma mater, the University of Kentucky. It gets a spiritual loyalty star for that.

Overall, it reads like a fanfiction. That doesn't mean bad. What I mean is that it has the schlocky, slice of life, conversational tone that a lot of fanfictions relish in espousing. The character traits are superficial and recognizable, often not not even hinting at much depth as they seem to rely on already established conventions to deliver most of their st

I haven't read the Half Moon Hollow books yet, but I have read the Jane Jameson series. The Half Moon Hollow series is the offshoot of Jane Jameson so I knew most of the characters going into this audio. I do suggest you at least read/listen to the series in order since it was obvious things happened right before this book. However, since I knew almost everyone there I didn't feel lost at all.

What I loved about this audio and what I love about al Molly Harper books is her humor. LOVED seeing a n

LOL...there were so many fun moments in this book. It did remind me of my Christmas's growing up and just how crazy my family would get. I miss those times though, with my gran gone, we don't have those anymore. Pity. I can identify with the lava candied sweet potatoes...*giggle*.

Leaves me eager for the next book in the series, but not as well-rounded as story as I like. But- as always, ADORE Amanda Ronconi's narration!

Yay! This was definitely a Christmas-themed story. Finally! Not so yay, it was a novella. Plus, I'm still struggling to figure out what the point of this story was. Most novellas are a story about a couple of secondary characters getting together. At least, that's been my experience so far. But in this story, no one got together. In fact, I'm not sure that the characters that inhabit this universe have moved forward in any discernible way. But

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

I'M DREAMING OF AN UNDEAD CHRISTMAS lives up to its billing as a prequel novella to THE DANGERS OF DATING A REBOUND VAMPIRE. Unfortunately, I must have missed that part before I read it, and as such, was expecting a complete romance story, like the other novellas in the Half Moon Hollow series.

If you're a fan of Half Moon Hollow and Molly Harper, there's no way you won't get at least some enjoyment out of I'M DREAMING OF AN UNDEAD CHRISTMAS. All our fa

Three and a half stars, rounded up.

I'll be the first one to admit that this is my first reading experience from Molly Harper. I know that this is book 2.7 in a series, but when a book stumbles into your inbox about vampires and Christmas, you read it no matter what number in the series it is. I have to say that I really love Harper's writing style, and I'll definitely be reading the rest of the Half-Moon Hallow books.

It was a little bit harder for me to get a grasp on all of the characters (ther

I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

This is a novella set in the Half Moon Hollow series, which is a spin-off from the Jane Jameson series and in the same world as the Naked Werewolf series. While you don't need to read the naked Werewolf story (or vice versa) to enjoy these, the Jane Jameson ones are somewhat required as far as I am concerned.

This particular novella is actually kind of interesting. It was initially released as an a

This was a fairly fun story, but there were things I liked and didn't like about it.

I liked that it focused on characters we already know. If you've read the other stories, you'll probably recognize everyone in this one. I liked spending time with familiar characters again, especially since, as this shows, the cast is already getting a bit unweildy, and that's even without the main characters from the last HMH book being there.

What I didn't like was that one of the purposes for this book was to

As someone who has not read any of the books from this series, I really enjoyed this book! Molly Harper gives enough info on all the characters that you won't be lost if you read this as a stand alone. It also has me very interested in the rest of the series now. I laughed so much while reading this :) Even with not knowing all that much about the characters, I enjoyed them very much and coukd feel their connections. Now please excuse me while I look into the books in this series . . .

3.5 stars - This audible freebie was a nice little slice of a Half Moon Hollows Christmas, with a set up for Iris' little sister Gigi's story (a new job and a kiss lay the ground work.) The humor and the dialog lend themselves well to the 'listening' format, but on the story front there really isn't enough set up in this short - especially considering that the vast majority of the gang from the Jane/Half-moon books have cameos - to work well as a stand alone. But for those who have read the othe ...more

My mother remembers an 8-year-old me setting up my “writing office” in our living room by putting her old manual typewriter on the couch next to a toy phone. And I (very slowly) pecked out the story of my third-grade class taking a trip around the world and losing a kid in each city.

I had a dark sense of humor, even then.

In high school, when other girls my age were writing poems about dying unicor
