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.

When you have to wait, but there's a Starbucks and you bring a book, it's more like a mini vacation.

Really enjoying the #mistletoemaniacs buddy read. It's corny but fun. #wintergames2021

My daughter has a shadow day at a new school today so I took a half day from work and am getting in a little reading at the library near the school. I can already tell I‘m going to love this book! #wintergames2021 #mistletoemanics

This was an enjoyable read. May keeps repeating Christmas week until she gets it right. She initially thinks that means not getting wasted and smooching with childhood friend Theo but after returning a time or two more, she realizes the universe expects more from her. The love interest is a lot too perfect. I guess that‘s to be expected from a holiday feel-good book.

I liked this but didn‘t love it. The pace felt quite slow and the sex scenes were a bit cringy for me. I found May and her life and the gorgeous cosy cabin wonderful, the writing was fun when it wasn‘t too long winded, but it could have been shorter and I‘d have been just as happy. I found Andrew and their relationship too perfect to really get into.

And the narrator‘s Australian accent was…. interesting, but that‘s not the authors fault.

AlaMich OMG the Australian accent was bad! I really liked the narrator and I liked the first half of the book. But I got tired of the endless descriptions of what Mae‘s various body parts were doing every time she looked at, thought about, or touched Andrew. 🙄 1d

Quick read on my kindle. Shout out to the Libby App for having it available. I am just about done with this book and I am not sure how I feel about it yet. There is an element to the story I must have missed. Hopefully the question I have will be revealed at the end. 🤷🏾‍♀️ or at least I hope. Not really what I expected but worth checking out.

Finished our team read. I was planning to read this story this month, so it‘s perfect that it‘s our team read. Really like the characters, found family, the romance of the MCs, so I was able to deal with the Groundhog Day plot. I always like Christina Lauren books. #mistletoemaniacs #wntergames @Clwojick 51 pts

#Audiobook for the #MistletoeManiacs team read. Rom-com is not a genre I read much and I groaned when I got to a plot device I didn't think I'd like. But I ended up enjoying this book a lot. A great message about the importance of personal happiness and that being true to your authentic self enhances familial relationships and bonds. Loved the outdoor/cabin/Christmas setting.

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

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.

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.
