      I love Christmas. I absolutely love Christmas stories. Even if it is October.Once upon a time Charles Dickens wrote a story for a bad man who was visited by the three spirits of Christmas on Christmas Eve. And that story never gets too old, it goes on and on from one generation to another.Spirits of Christmas is a modern version of A Christmas Carol. Jude has it all, a band, great songs, fame, love of his life. Rock'n'roll star on the top of his career. And he hates it all. He fights with everyo [...]

      It took a little getting used to the British English Nicky used in writing this, as this is the first novel/novella I've read not using the American English I've heard all of life. I live on the other side of "The Pond" is the NY City Metropolitan area so seeing word like pajamas spelled pyjamas threw off my reading the story in the beginning, but I eventually got used to reading it.The story remains rule in its basic storyline to the original "Christmas Carol" written by Charles Dickens, update [...]

    • Marina Sofia says:

      I've had this one on my e-reader since last Christmas but finally got around to reading it. So glad I did. It's the perfect seasonal read - Christmas Carol with a modern and musical twist, and shades of 'It's a Wonderful Life'. Clever, witty touches with spectres of rock stars kept this light and fun, while the underlying message of course is timeless: 'don't be an egoistic, egocentric bastard'.

      Loved, loved, loved this novella by UK author Nicky Wells. Novellas are so terrific this time of year when everything gets hectic and your things-to-do list becomes unruly. This one, in particular, is so fun to read this time of year because it delivers so much to so many readers. You've got your romance, your ghost story, your festive holiday theme. And as a special treat, the structure of the story follows the classic A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Readers of the Rock Star Romance Trilo [...]

    • Sophie says:

      Posted originally reviewedthebook/2014 Spirits of Christmas is a rock and roll take on the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. I’ve actually never read A Christmas Carol or any of its adaptations so I don’t know how Nicky Wells’ take on it fares in that aspect but I did think it was a really creative and entertaining festive novella. Nicky looked to be having tons of fun when writing this book, with the rock and roll side shining out and this was a refreshing, vibrant tale with a di [...]

      When Nicky told me she was writing a Christmas story, I was beyond excited. Once a rock chick, always a rock chick! From the blurb itself, one could easily tell Spirits of Christmas is different from other Christmas stories. I really enjoyed reading it and this time, there were new characters! Jude, the front-man of a band, The Blood Roses and Carrie, his partner with a dream of becoming a journalist. The beginning of the story was quite creepy and I was totally freaked out. However, the story w [...]

    • Melanie says:

      What a great take on Dickens' 'Christmas Carol'! I really liked this modernized Rock & Roll version of a classic that is familiar to all of us.The story opens on Christmas Eve with Jude Shaw, a lead singer of the band The Blood Roses, and his band mates ending a gig by being booed off the stage.All the mates are frustrated, but Jude is the one that piles all the blame on the mates, and ends up leaving them with a huge chip on his shoulder. As he believes that the band will probably break up, [...]

    • Kathryn Svendsen says:

      This was a cute rewrite of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Updated to modern times, with a rock ’n’ roll theme, this novel is a fun adventure with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, otherwise known to the main character Jude as Past, Present and Fu.Each of these spirits appear to Jude one night just before Christmas. At first each one appears to be a famous, though now-dead rock legend (I have to admit, I didn’t really recognize any of them, except maybe for the first [...]

      Cute Take on A Christmas CarolThe author did a great job of combining rock and roll with A Christmas Carol. It IS possible to reform your bad ways AND have your dreams come true!

    • J.B (Debbie) says:

      Spirits of Christmas is a fantastic novella by the very talented Nicky Wells. The book begins with a huge row between Jude, lead singer of a rock group, and the group themselves. After being booed off the stage during a local gig, Jude has decided its entirely the fault of the other band members. So, he doesn't hold back in telling them so. He says some horrible and hurtful things and doesn't let the fact that its Christmas Eve stop him being cruel and spiteful. And just when Jude doesn't think [...]

    • Debbie says:

      I had never read any books by this author but thoroughly enjoyed this Christmas novella. A very nice twist on Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol & possibly a wake up call a few people could do well to have. Jude is in a band with some old friends & they're doing quite well but life isn't all it could be & like many of us problems start in our work relationships & personal relationships & usually it's down to lack of communication, getting daft ideas in our heads of what we thi [...]

      Jude, the lead singer and one of the founding members of the rock and roll band, The Blood Roses, is down on his luck. A once promising band that everyone was trying to book, was now getting booed off stage and kicked out of clubs. In a fit of rage, Jude lashes out at his band members, telling them that he doesn’t need them and would be better off alone. When he heads to his flat in hopes of his girlfriend being there to console him, he is surprised to find that she is not there and has taken [...]

      When I found out that this novel was a retelling of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens I was a little apprehensive about reading it as I wondered if there could be anything new to add to this most traditional of Christmas tales. However, I needn’t have worried as in Nicky’s hands and with the help of some rock and roll magic, this is a fun, festive frolic. The reader meets Jude who is the lead singer of a rock band who initially enjoyed much success but mainly due to Jude’s increasingly [...]

    • ChristinaTorretta says:

      I'm always biased when it comes to Nicky Well's writing. Just something about her English prose, the way she says things, her characters, and her plots just get to me. They are easy to read and so much fun but still have a plot! Sometimes of which I can not figure out at all!When Nicky Wells asked me to review this I didn't hesitate. The synopsis is so freaking cute that I was excited before I even opened up my Kindle!And of course, I don't have to say, Nicky didn't let me down! This is just a c [...]

      Firstly I’d like to thank the author for sending me this eBook novella to read and give an honest review.Nicky Wells has done it again with this fantastic rock twist on the classic A Christmas Carol story! Jude was an unpleasant character to begin with and I was looking forward to seeing how he would fare with the ghosts. Obviously knowing the story well I knew where everything was heading but I still thoroughly enjoyed following Jude on his journey, I’ve never read a rock’n'roll version b [...]

      This is a must read book for the Christmas time.

This Christmas, however, he is well down the road towards spontaneous self-destruction. Unwitting at first, Jude has progressively alienated his band and driven away the love of his life.

      In Spirits of Christmas, Nicky Wells take Charles Dickens' classic, A Christmas Carol, and puts a rock-n-roll spin on it. And she did so splendidly!

Lucky for him, he has a few rock-n-roll spirits to show him the error of his ways. ;) As Jude's spirit guides lead him through his past, present, and possible future, [...]

    • All Booked Out says:

      Received a copy from the Author in exchange for an honest review.I haven't read any of Nicky's Novels, so this for me was a total introduction into Nicky's style.I loved it, well written, a novella with the 'Rock n Roll' edge on a classic Christmas Carol. Jude is the main character, the bad rocker taking everyone for granted and just being booed off stage, goes home to find his girl has also left himI don't like to be smoothered in Christmas spirit, so this Rock n Roll edge was perfect, i wasn't [...]

    • Joanna Gawn says:

      ​Jude​'s​ turned into quite an unlikeable character, alienating those closest to him. Like Dickens' Scrooge, the first thing the reader learns of Jude is his belligerence, his arrogance, his selfishness.So why keep reading? How can this miserable musician win *our* hearts?Because, like Scrooge, Jude's night of nightmares ensures that his character is destined for change.Because the author has proven, through her Rock Star Romance Trilogy, that she knows how to write a rockin' good story (o [...]

      How many times do you yourself wish to say to celebs, to basically wise up, get a grip on your life before you lose it, sort yourself out before it's too late.?This is more or less what Jude Shaw hears after a disastrous gig where his band breaks up, his girlfriend leaves him & 4 dead famous rock stars visit him in one night to give him that exact advice. After that the rest is up to Jude. I started reading thinking I was going to hate this but noI fell in love with it as it gives a classic [...]

    • Sarah says:

      This was a great festive read. It was like a modern version of A Christmas Carol with a rock theme. I really enjoyed it and it really got me in the Christmas spirit and ready for the festivities.As much as a Christmas Carol is a classic I actually enjoyed this story more and liked guessing which rock legends the ghosts were going to be. Although it has the same kind of theme to the classic Christmas tale there was also a love story running through it and even though the main character was male a [...]
