GL's 5 favorite holiday reads
Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
The perfect combination of festive Christmas spirit and swoon-worthy romance in this short story collection of three romances penned by popular YA authors. This collection pairs excellently with freshly baked Christmas cookies and a warm mug of hot chocolate (with whipped cream, of course).
Ex-mas by Kate Brian
Lila’s parents have just left for vacation and she’s set to throw the ultimate holiday party. However, when her Christmas-obsessed little brother, Cooper, discovers that global warming is causing the North Pole to melt, he takes off with his best friend, Tyler, to save Santa. Lila has to get her brother back home safely before her parent’s return on Christmas Eve, so she turns to the only person who can help: Tyler’s older brother, Beau, aka Lila’s ex-boyfriend.
Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
