Charlotte Charlie Donovan knows exactly what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He s the school s star athlete, in the National Honor Society, 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 he barely knows she exists.

But Charlie is determined to be Teo's date to the Christmas ball. And she has a plan: To 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 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?

My New Crush Gave to Me was such a feel good and adorable novel. This book seriously made me feel all the warm and fuzzies! I love reading books that put me in the holiday spirit, and that book did just that! BRING ON THE HOLIDAYS!

The author did such a great job at creating a cozy and adorable winter atmosphere for this book. I would almost compare it to a Christmas Hallmark movie! There were so many fun Christmas activities that the characters participated in that made me crave the holiday season! I NOW WANT TO PUT UP CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS AND START LISTENING TO CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!!! 

^ Literally me right now. 

All of the characters in this book were interesting and relatable in their own way. Charlie, the main character, was a passionate and extremely dedicated girl. I really admired how she would always strive to be the best at everything she did. Sometimes she was too controlling and I was so happy that other characters pointed that out to try and make Charlie loosen up a bit! Morgan, Charlie's best friend, was such a sweet character! She was seriously SUCH a good friend to Charlie and I loved that their relationship was important to the story. I don't want to talk about the male characters as to spoil anything, but they were great too!

The romance in this book was freaking ADORABLE. The main romance of this book was predictable, but I still enjoyed watching Charlie discover her feelings. I knew right away how the romance was going to play out, but it didn't hinder my enjoyment of the romance! I still found Charlie's romance swoon-worthy and SOOOO cute!!! Seriously, it put a smile on my face and made me squeal out loud! DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON HOW CUTE THE ENDING WAS! MY SHIPPER HEART COULDN'T HANDLE IT! I also really liked the side romances as well. I was so glad that the author included those as well.

Overall, this was such a feel-good novel! This is a book that is guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit and put a smile on your face! If you love YA novels that make you feel the warm and fuzzies, then I would definitely recommend checking this book out!
