In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren {Stephanie’s Review}


In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren was gifted to me by my COYER Secret Santa. Lillian from Mom with a Reading Problem and I buddy read this. She finished it the day we started it. I got a later than anticipated start and finished it the next day. This is just a few pages over 300 but In a Holidaze is one of those books whose publication date was just so beautifully timed. I had a hard time putting it down.

In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren is Groundhog Day-esque but I think some readers went into this book expecting too much of that. It’s similar; not a play by play. Think inspired by. Mae pleads with the universe to show her what would make her happy…she just wasn’t expecting the universe to listen.

Oh this book. I loved it in a way that I can’t explain. I think it’s my book of the year. It was the floofiest best thing I needed at the end of a depressing year. It was holidays; it was home; it was tradition. It was about finding the person you were meant to be with.

Mae is one of the most tender-hearted characters that I’ve met in a longtime. She’s just a little stuck right now. She lacks the confidence to go after what she wants. If that’s not relatable I don’t know what is. Mae just needs some time (on repeat) to figure it out. I adored all of the extended family by choice and I could completely empathize with Mae.

In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren made me laugh literally out loud and because I’m a big old softie I teary-eyed more than once. I gushingly loved this book. I am forever grateful to my COYER Secret Santa for sending this to me. It’s most likely my 2020 book of the year and one I’m going to read every year as a Christmas tradition.
