    So... this was cute, festive, adorable, but maid for younger audience, in my opinion. The trope in this book is love triangle, so keep that in mind.

God, I really want to believe my life is the one from Hallmark movies as well. There are Christmas references through the whole story, and that was my favourite aspect. My second one was the family portrait, and the third one was one of two love interests. If you ask me, it was clear as day who she should end up with. Also, that big revelation, I kind of saw it, or should I say, it did cross my mind. However, I still enjoyed it. I would recommend this one to younger readers and those who enjoy younger ya characters.

    Thank you to Netgalley and Underlined Publishing for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was pitched as a Hallmark movie in book form, it delivered, and that's great. Except for the part where I hate Hallmark movies. Bailey loves Christmas. In fact, you could say that she's obsessed with it.

This book was pitched as a Hallmark movie in book form, it delivered, and that's great. Except for the part where I hate Hallmark movies. Bailey loves Christmas. In fact, you could say that she's obsessed with it. Everything from the holiday cheer to the ugly sweaters brings her joy, but what she really wants in her life is Christmas magic, specifically, the enchantment of love, and a kiss under the mistletoe. I love rom-coms as much as the next hopeless romantic (probably even more), but this book is where I draw the line (I mean, I have to have some standards). From the very beginning, the main character, Bailey, is made out to be a total Mary Sue. She loves spreading holiday cheer, is totally responsible, and always has good intentions. There is no depth to her character at all, and no development over the course of the story. That is just a small thing, however, which I can easily ignore. My biggest issue with this book stems from the romance itself, or should I say, the love-triangle. I strongly dislike love-triangles. I went into this book expecting a cute, holiday-themed romance, where instead, I got Bailey trying to decide "which boy she should pick". What made everything much worse for me was the way in which the love-triangle was "resolved". It was really unsatisfying and made me feel like I had wasted my time (which I probably did.) So yeah. I like romance, but not like this. Overall, I would recommend this book to others who would rather read a Hallmark movie than watch it.

Anyway, this book seems to be geared for the young adult crowd and I agree BUT I think a YOUNGER bunch in the group would be the best fit for this one. It’s very cutsie, cozy, and sweet. If I had to describe the perfect age range this novel, I would actually say 12-14. So maybe it’s more middle grade than anything. IDK! It’s hard to say because the characters are older in the story but it’s also a very PURE if you get my drift. No sex, maybe two scenes with kissing, and that’s it. Regardless of the age range, I really enjoyed this one. I am a big Christmas lover, and this book had the best descriptions of Christmas and all the traditions that go with it throughout the novel. You can’t read this one without getting a few Christmas tunes stuck in your head. And the COOKIES they talk about? Made me drool! I enjoyed it a lot. If you enjoy reading Holiday themed novels in the months leading up to Christmas, then I do recommend this one even though it’s on the sweeter side. Sometimes you just need a book that isn’t all about sex and relationships, and instead, one that really depicts sweet kids doing the nicest things out of the goodness of their hearts, and POSSIBLY falling in love in the process.

It had the perfect amount of young teenage essence. I liked the main character a lot! Bailey works in a book store over Christmas time (and throughout the year) and is looking for her perfect, almost Hallmark Movie scripted, Christmas romance. She is all about Christmas in every way you can think; movies, cookies, decorations, tree decorating, traditions, mistletoe, gift wrapping, etc. She really made this book festive. While you can tell she is young, she isn't young and foolish, and I really admire and appreciate how the author wrote her character. The pop culture references were a plus, mostly because I'm still young enough to understand and enjoy them. One random thing about this book that stuck with me was The Cookie Swap. Not anything that happened during it, but how good of an idea that it (pandemic permitting...)! I would love to know my neighbors well enough to do something like that, or maybe have it be a friend thing! Get together, everyone makes their favorite kind of unique Christmas cookie and bring a tin of their own to take home their favorites from other people! Like, I am definitely going to steal this idea in the future because it sounds like so much fun! The best part of this book for me was the ending. It totally took me by surprise and added an element of Christmas spirit that I really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this teenage Christmas romance!

    Really cute book (I listened to audio, & narrator did a great job!) This is like a Hallmark movie made for the teen/YA crowd, but my old(ish) self loved it, too! A rom-com with a just a smidge of magic! A very lovely, mostly uplifting story!

It was so bingeable and is definitely an easy one-sitting read. The ending was a bit cliche and predictable but I think it wrapped everything up well and connected the whole story. This read just like a tween/teen Hallmark movie and it really captured all of the magic of Christmas. Reading this was like eating my favorite Christmas cookies; sugary, cozy and full of happiness.

    Excellent book to read this time of year! Teens and adults are sure to love this new book. What is there not to love about friendship, family traditions, cookie parties, sledding and romance. It's not the descriptive hot romance you might read about in an adult fiction book but the fun, friendly type that teens in high school experience. Very enjoyable read!

    All I Want for Christmas was nearly everything I was looking for in a Christmas-themed YA rom-com. For starters, Bailey Briggs, our leading teen girl, is so much like me it’s crazy! She’s a hopeless romantic, cute & quirky, a passionate lover of and believer in Christmas, and undeniably bookish. I especially loved the fact that she worked at a bookstore, because I can totally relate (I mean, libraries aren’t that much different from bookstores, are they?) I also completely adored the holiday aspec All I Want for Christmas was nearly everything I was looking for in a Christmas-themed YA rom-com. For starters, Bailey Briggs, our leading teen girl, is so much like me it’s crazy! She’s a hopeless romantic, cute & quirky, a passionate lover of and believer in Christmas, and undeniably bookish. I especially loved the fact that she worked at a bookstore, because I can totally relate (I mean, libraries aren’t that much different from bookstores, are they?) I also completely adored the holiday aspect of it, as it made it a perfect book to read to transition me into the Christmas spirit. This book has gingerbread cookie decorating, tree farm visits, holiday parties, winter snowstorms, and so much more! However, my favorite part about this book was all the cute little subtle touches the author added, including, but not limited to: - Snapchat filters - A MC w/ two siblings (an older brother & younger sister) - Texting excerpts with emojis (not Apple’s version, but close enough!) - Bailey teaching her parents TikTok dances - Mentions of both ACT & SAT - Bailey having two jobs (bookstore and babysitting) - Referencing other books like Trials of Apollo instead of HP & JKR - Jacob having mild acne (which is UNHEARD of in love interests!) - Bailey’s chem teacher wearing an “Oh Chemistree” sweater - The inclusion of a full recipe for “Mom’s Spritz Cookies” - Mentions of Christmas Vacation (one of my favorite holiday movies!) - Saying APUSH instead of AP history - Bitmoji mentions … and so many more I’m probably forgetting! That being said, even with all of the modern-day references thrown in, this read very much like an early 2000s YA mass-market romance book (Simon Romantic Comedies, anyone?), which isn’t too much of a problem for me, as I love those books to death, except that there wasn’t any discernible diversity (body, sexuality, gender, race, religion, disability, or otherwise) in either the main or side characters, which is something that I feel like would have easily enhanced my appreciation and enjoyment of the book. Also, while I really enjoyed the suspense of not knowing who Bailey would ultimately pick (even though I had my suspicions!), there was a plot twist directly relating to this at the very end that I wasn’t expecting (those who have already read this know EXACTLY what I'm talking about hahaha). In all honesty, what bothered me the most about it was not actually the reveal itself (which I thought was really unique and fun!), but that since it happened within the last few pages, it could’ve maybe been explained a little better? Other than that, however, I found All I Want for Christmas to be a charming, wholesome book that warmed my heart in the best way possible. Like its eponymous song title, this is a story full of Christmas magic, holiday cheer, corny moments, and just the perfect amount of swoonworthy moments. Highly recommended for fans of Aimee Friedman (A Novel Idea, Snow in Love), Shani Petroff (My New Crush Gave to Me), and anyone else in the mood for a fluffy YA rom-com to curl up with for the holidays!

This book is definitely geared towards the younger end of YA, which I was not expecting. I also wish there was more conflict in the story as the main challenge was whether Bailey should date Jacob, the guy she's known from school but has misjudged, or Charlie, a new British guy. There was a twist at the end of the book that felt really out of place for me. I really wanted to love this one but this book was just not for me unfortunately. I received a digital ARC from NetGalley.

    Teen, Christmas-loving bookstore worker Bailey Briggs wants a guy to kiss under the mistletoe. She is sure it's cute, English-accent-speaking Charlie and not fellow classmate Jacob Marley, who despite his name enjoys Christmas. Which guy is right for her. To be honest, at first, I was a little skeptical about the book because of the commonly-used song title, but it totally works in this case. To add to the song-titled book, most chapters are headed with a Christmas song title. Some examples are: Teen, Christmas-loving bookstore worker Bailey Briggs wants a guy to kiss under the mistletoe.

To add to the song-titled book, most chapters are headed with a Christmas song title. Some examples are: Wonderful Christmastime, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and Step into Christmas. Bailey's love for Christmas is apparent within the first few chapters, along with her enjoyment of her bookstore job. The author did a great job at conveying Bailey's dilemma about whether Charlie or Jacob is the guy for her. At first, I was thinking one guy would be good for her, but then I realized later I shouldn't count the other out just yet. It came with a surprising ending that I DID NOT expect. This is a good, light, Christmas romance teen book one fitting of it's title.

    I love cheesy romances but this book is just one big cringe fest. Yes the characters are in high school but they act like they’re in middle school. Super immature and whiny. Also there is too much Gen Z lingo. I don’t like hearing it in everyday life let alone every second page in a novel. I can’t handle the cringe of this book, therefore I am dnfing it.

    A cute, fun holiday romance! The characters were realistic, aside from Charlie. My favorite part was the fact that the main character, Bailey worked in a bookstore. That seems like such an awesome job. Fans of Kasie West’s books will enjoy this.

    My favorite Christmas read of the year! I loved Bailey as a character and I related to her SO MUCH. She was basically overflowing with Christmas spirit and cheer.

    dnf - I usually tend to push myself to not dnf books (and specially not this early into the plot), but I really had to this time, and I barely got to 20%. The main character was too snobby, annoying and hella judgemental, and I don’t think my mind’s in the right place to deal with superficial high school girl drama.
