My New Crush Gave to Me

My New Crush Gave to Me

By Shani Petroff

Nothing says, "holiday fun" like fishnet stockings and velvet, #amiright? That’s why we’re pairing this Christmas outfit with the fun and flirty My New Crush Gave To Me. Charlotte Charlie Donovan knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He's the school's star athlete, he's in the National Honor Society, gets invited to every party, contributes to the school paper (where Charlie is co-editor), and is about to be featured as One to Watch in a teen magazine. Basically, he's exactly the type of guy Charlie's meant to be with. The only problem is, he barely knows she exists.

 

But Charlie is determined to be Teo's date to the Christmas ball. And she has a plan: rig the paper's Secret Santa so that she can win his heart with five perfect gifts. But to do that she needs help. Enter J.D. Ortiz Teo's cousin, and possibly the most annoying person on the planet. He's easy going, laid back, unorganized, spontaneous, and makes a joke out of everything. Basically, the exact opposite of Charlie (and Teo). But he's willing to provide insight into what Teo wants, so she's stuck with him.

Yet, the more time Charlie spends with J.D., the more she starts to wonder: Does she really know what, or rather who, she wants for Christmas?

Kissing Snowflakes

Kissing Snowflakes

By Abby Sher

Mariah’s fun, sweet winter look pairs perfectly with this book that is filled with humor and romance. The picturesque mountain ski lodge is the perfect place to spend winter break if you have a boyfriend! Otherwise, that cozy leather couch in front of the crackling fire looks a lot less inviting. Good thing that there are lots of cute, blond, sweater-wearing ski instructors around to choose from.

Ex-mas

Ex-mas

By Kate Brian

Mariah’s fit in this photo is serious "New phone, who dis?" GOALS, which is why it pairs perfectly with 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?

What Light

What Light

By Jay Asher

Mariah’s outfit, and her HUGE smile give us hope for true love just the same way What Light does. Even though What Light is a little more on the serious side, Mariah and her X-mas onesie are here to reassure you that every little thing is gonna be alright. Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon—it's a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other.

 

Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.

 

By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb's past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love.

Decked with Holly

Decked with Holly

By Marni Bates

Mariah looks like a rock star decked in white and silver, so it’s only natural that we pair this with Decked With Holly. Just like Mariah, this books combines trendy and classic in a hilarious, over-the-top adventure about a teen girl who becomes the fake girlfriend of a cute rock star.

 

Taking a Christmas cruise with her two cousins from hell isn't Holly's idea of a good time. And when seasickness forces her into an open suite, she's pepper-sprayed by a gorgeous guy called Nick. But when Holly makes her exit, she's greeted by a horde of screaming teenage fans. Because Nick happens to be Dominic Wyatt, drummer for one of the hottest bands in America. Suddenly rumours are swirling and Holly's face is plastered all over the Internet. The band can't risk a scandal destroying their family-friendly image, so Dominic convinces Holly to be his fake girlfriend - just for two weeks. How bad could it be to be "fauxmantically" involved with a cute rock star? She's about to find out...

Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances

Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances

By John Green, Lauren Myracle and Maureen Johnson

Santa, a little red dress, and a BOMB blow out. It feels like this fun and flirty outfit was made for the three holiday romances in Let It Snow.

 

Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks.

 

Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.
