    Christmas Shopaholic

    by Sophie Kinsella

    ’Tis the season for change and Becky Brandon is embracing it, returning from the States to live in the charming village of Letherby and working with her best friend, Suze, in the gift shop of Suze’s stately home. Things are looking cheerier than ever, until Becky’s parents announce they’re moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch, and ask Becky if she’ll host this year.

    Let It Snow

    by John Green, Lauren Myracle and Maureen Johnson

    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 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 young adult 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.

    by Josie Silver

Their eyes meet, there’s a moment of pure magic…and then her bus drives away. They “reunite” at a Christmas party, when her best friend Sarah giddily introduces her new boyfriend to Laurie. It’s Jack, the man from the bus. It would be. What follows for Laurie, Sarah and Jack is ten years of friendship, heartbreak, missed opportunities, roads not taken, and destinies reconsidered.
