Title: My New Crush Gave To Me
Author: Shani Petroff
Date of Publication: October 31st, 2017
Charlotte “Charlie” Donovan knows what she wants for Christmas: Teo Ortiz. He’s a star athlete, in the National Honor Society, invited to every party, and contributes to the school paper (where Charlie is co-editor). Basically, he’s exactly the type of guy Charlie’s looking for. The only problem—he barely knows she exists.
But Charlie has a plan: Rig the paper’s Secret Santa and win his heart with five perfect gifts. Enter J.D. Ortiz—Teo’s cousin, and possibly the most annoying person on the planet. He’s easy going, laid back, unorganized, and spontaneous—the exact opposite of Charlie (and Teo). But he knows 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 adorably cute! I read Petroff’s last book, Romeo & What’s Her Name, which I might add is one of my favorite reads so far this year! This book was just as good!
What I feel like Petroff does really well is have teens act their age. I notice people will say when they read YA books where teens actually act their age that they find them immature, etc. Does everyone forget that most high school kids are immature?? Heck, I was immature even through college and still am at times! Not everyone in YA books needs to act like the are forty years old!
I lovedddddddd J.D.! He was the perfect match for Charlie. I also loved Charlie’s best friend. They were what friendship definitely should be. There were some hilarious moments in the book, and I am seriously a hard person to make smile while reading. I constantly found myself smiling at this story.
This book is a great read around Christmas time or anytime really. I already have Petroff’s next book on my TBR, and I’m already anxiously rubbing my hands together waiting for it!! Come on 2018!!!
How does this book sound to you?
