Love Actually meets Groundhog Day in the quintessential holiday romance by the New York Times bestselling author of The Honey-Dont List. Its the most wonderful time of the yearbut not for Maelyn Jones. Shes living with her parents, hates her going-nowhere job, and has just made a romantic error of epic proportions. But perhaps worst of all, this is the last Christmas Mae will be at her favorite place in the worldthe snowy Utah cabin where she and her family have spent every holiday since she was born, along with two other beloved families. Mentally melting down as she drives away from the cabin for the final time, Mae throws out what she thinks is a simple plea to the universe: Please. Show me what will make me happy. The next thing she knows, tires screech and metal collides, everything goes black. But when Mae gasps awakeshes on an airplane bound for Utah, where she begins the same holiday all over again. With one hilarious disaster after another sending her back to the plane, Mae must figure out how to break free of the strange time loopand finally get her true love under the mistletoe. Jam-packed with yuletide cheer, an unforgettable cast of characters, and Christina Laurens trademark downright hilarious (Helen Hoang, author of The Bride Test) hijinks, this swoon-worthy romantic read will make you believe in the power of wishes and the magic of the holidays.

So, I read the book last year and decided to do audio for this year. I thought I mike like it better this time around, but not so. It was well-written, but I think it‘s just not my genre. Also, I don‘t really like the “Groundhog Day” trope. It seems there are no real stakes in this kind of story, and it just doesn‘t hold my interest. But if you‘re into the rom-com romances, you‘ll probably enjoy it. #mistletoemaniacs #wintergames @Clwojick

A cute Christmas holiday story with time travel and a romance. It was a nice pick me up after a crazy week.

I‘m not a big fan of the Groundhog‘s Day premise & at the beginning I thought it was going to get old fast. Fortunately, it got away from the repetitive nature of that gimmick and was just the fun Thanksgiving weekend read I want it. Benny was a great supporting character and the two main people had great chemistry. A fun read for the holidays. The lack of resolution in the time travel was annoying, but I just took it as a romcom and let it go.

This is my planned #tbr (subject to change) for December. The Christmas ones are for the buddy read & #wintergames. I started both the Kiss Quotient & Electric Kingdom earlier this year & really want to go back & reread/finish them. The other 2 are new releases TBR from the library. @Clwojick #mistletoemaniacs

kezzlou85 The twelve dates of Christmas is really good and I'm looking forward to starting in a holidaze. 6d
Scochrane26 @kezzlou85 I read 12 Dates last year but am going to reread. It‘s such a cute book—worth revisiting. 6d

In a holidaze? More like just “constantly in a daze” because I have no idea what‘s going on!
I‘m probably the few percentage who didn‘t exactly like this book (my apologies to the ones who did, no offense intended).

My full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/4347053972

I.be.Stef Let me get to the facts. Plot line? Brilliant! Time traveling and reliving the holidays was a fantastic way to start the story. It was funny and I even managed to actually laugh OUT LOUD ha!
And then it began crumbling…..

My Thanksgiving went a little like this....

Cooked a turkey in the slow cooker (definitely doing that again), watched some football, and read a Christina Lauren book like I did last Thanksgiving (starting a tradition here).

All in all, it was the perfect day.

I hope everyone else's day was just as perfect and relaxing.

Post 2 for #WinterGames2021 TBR - ebook version. I‘m most looking forward to In a Holidaze as I‘ve heard good things.

IndoorDame I liked In A Holidaze. And I don‘t know how, but you always manage to find the best steamy books. When I try I end up with such annoying prose. I‘m going to start stealing titles from you! 5d
StayCurious @IndoorDame Haha sometimes I find annoying ones too! It‘s really a hit or miss with romance - especially holiday ones. Sometimes you have to acknowledge that it‘s going to be cheesy and just go with it 😝 5d
IndoorDame @StayCurious 🤣 good to know. I guess I just have to be in the right headspace to read them, not count on them all being great 5d

I've seen some posts asking for holiday themed reading recs for #WinterGames2021 or just for general December reading fun. I'm going to be making a post on Unassigned Reading list next week with a more curated list of holiday romances, but I thought those looking for recs might find my full list useful. I'm trying to limit my Dec bookspin to just 10 titles from this list, but we'll see if that happens.

Okay #groupF, I googled “Hallmark holiday movie in book form” to come up with my list, so these are all contemporaries. I also threw in my favorite holiday rom-com that I‘m rereading no matter what, but thought it might be fun for the group. Please let me know if you‘ve read any of these or if any sound particularly appealing (or unappealing). ☺️ I can always go back to the drawing board if need be.

slategreyskies Just curious, which one‘s your favorite that you reread? 2mo
DGRachel @slategreyskies The only one of these I‘ve read is In a Holidaze. It was fun escapism and it‘s now on my to-reread-annually list. I‘m usually more of a historical romance fan than contemporary, although I‘ll read both. 2mo
BethM I‘m glad she asked because I was going to ask! I‘ll read any of these. The only one I‘m not super keen on is the bramble house just bc ive seen the movie. 2mo
DGRachel @BethM I didn‘t want to sway the group. 😂I haven‘t seen the movie version of Bramble House, but I‘m 95% sure I‘ve seen The Bridge. 2mo
Littlewolf1 @DGRachel @BethM I was going to say bramble house and snow angel Cove are my top picks, but never mind on bramble house, LOL. Really all of them sound great, I‘m good with whatever you choose. 2mo
Roary47 Awww these all look really good. I have been wanting to read Holidaze, but am open for any. 😊💛 2mo
DGRachel @BethM @Littlewolf1 @Roary47 Good morning! I guess I should have made sure I could get my hands on all of these. Snow Angel Cove is out of print, so I don‘t think I can get a copy on time. I can get In a Holidaze, so I‘m going with that one. (edited) 2mo

This was my first Christina Lauren book, and I am so glad it was! I seriously enjoyed this Groundhog Day-like story where the holidays are a backdrop. The characters were well developed and I loved the relationships everyone had with each other. I cannot wait to read this one again. Definitely checking out more of their work!

Least favorite or in the bottom two (didn't like Honey Don't List Either...) from this duo. I feel like maybe they are being pressured to write too quickly to be more creative since the last book felt like a bad play on Chip & Joanna Gaines and this one like Groundhogs's Day - but not? IDK just not the creativity I fell in love with from these author's.

A fun read but nothing special in my opinion. I did go into this with the mistaken impression that the heroine would end up with someone else. I spent the first 65% of the book waiting for her to realize she‘s been crushing on the wrong brother for a decade. I think that prevented me from connect with the hero and really rooting for their romance 🤷‍♀️
