WoW #218 – Blame it on the Mistletoe

Posted July 28, 2021 by Lillian in Features / 1 Comment

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday y’all and week two of Christmas in July! Today I’m eagerly waiting on a YA rom-com that promises to be a fun holiday read. Blame it on the Mistletoe by Beth Garrod is about two very different girls who swap lives for the holiday season. Reading the blurb reminds me a lot of one of my favorite holiday movies, The Holiday. I cannot wait to dive in and see how the author tackles this story.

Tweet Cute meets the movie The Holiday in this funny holiday rom-com where two very different girls swap lives for a Christmas adventure.

Elle is a social medial star with the #DreamLife...or so it seems. Determined to shake up her content and gain new followers, she's on a mission: can she find a British fan to swap with for Christmas?

Holly loves everything about Christmas. But after a mortifying mistletoe disaster with her ex, her perfect plans unravel like a bad Christmas sweater. Can Holly save the holidays when she switches places with favorite social media influencer?

Elle gets more than she bargained for when she meets the cute boy from across the street. And Holly wasn't expecting Elle to have a handsome twin brother. This holiday is full of surprises.
