Book Lovers Holiday Giveaway Hop

Welcome! You've found the next stop on the Book Lovers Holiday Giveaway Hop!
For this hop stop, I'm giving away the new YA holiday book bloggers are calling "a Yuletide classic" and "a Christmas favorite to be read year after year."

North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus, a memoir by Santa's daughter, Candace Jane Kringle.

Every father dreads the day his daughter starts dating. Even Santa Claus!

North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus tells the story of sixteen-year-old Candycane Claus, the most popular girl in school, whose world is turned upside down when Rudy Tutti is assigned to work with her on a school Christmas-tree project. The new boy is hot chocolate, but he hates everything to do with Christmas. As Candy and Rudy grow closer, Santa's opposition to his daughter's blossoming romance puts Christmas in jeopardy. Now it's up to the two North-Star-cross'd teens to save the day and restore joy to the world!

  1. I really like traditional Christmas hymns like 'We Three Kings'. Preferably with a full choir and some organ music.

    1. I love "Let it Snow" too, but why is that weather considered "frightful"? It's perfectly normal weather here in the North Pole! LOL. :D

  13. Thank you, Gaby. I hadn't heard that one before. It's funny.

    Cassandra, I like that one too, but it's kind of sad when you think about it. Only in my dreams?

    Jamie, how could anyone not like snow? I guess I'm just used to it since we have SO MUCH of the stuff here in the freezing North Pole. LOL.

    Me too, Kayley! I love the part where they go merry-merry-merry-merry Christmas! :)

  22. Hi Erma. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas because even though we always have a lot of snow at the North Pole, we can never see it because it's always night here at Christmastime. :(

    No disrespect, April, but I find that song a little icky because she's singing about my DAD. LOL.

    Good choice, Erika. I've got some corn for popping... :)

    That song rocks, Becca! :D
