YA Holiday Reads

Christmas is less than two weeks away! Can you believe it!?!? I can’t! I don’t have my Christmas shopping done, nor my Christmas cards sent out…. I might just give up on those.

During the holiday season I love reading themed books. Here’s one of my favorites!

Ex-Mas by Kate Brian

Two Exes. One holiday adventure.

Merry Ex-Mas?

Seventeen-year-old Lila Beckwith’s parents just left for vacation, and Lila’s all set to throw the holiday party of the season. But when her Christmas-obsessed little brother, Cooper, discovers that global warming is melting the North Pole, he and his best friend, Tyler, take off on a runaway mission to save Santa.

Lila has to get Cooper safely home before her parents get back on Christmas Eve. But the only person who can help her is Tyler’s older brother, Beau — a.k.a. Lila’s musician, anti-everything ex-boyfriend.

It’ll take more than a Christmas miracle for Lila and Beau to overcome their differences and find their fugitive brothers. But could a journey destined for disaster help these polar opposites fall in love…all over again?

One I have in my pile to read this year that is very overdue is:

Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle

The weather outside is frightful, but these stories are delightful! When a huge blizzard (that doesn’t show signs of stopping) hits, Gracetown is completely snowed in. But even though it’s cold outside, things are heating up inside, proving that the holiday season is magical when it comes to love. In three wonderfully (and hilariously!) interconnected tales, YA stars John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson create a must-have collection that captures all the spirit of the holiday season.

I’ve had this one forever! I think it’s even signed by John Green, not sure why I haven’t read it yet. But I will remedy that here in the next few weeks!

Do you have any favorite holiday themed reads? Any that you read over and over every year? I would love to hear your suggestions!

Anyone have any ideas what I should get my mom for Christmas? :)
