My New Crush Gave to Me by Shani Petroff | Book Review

My New Crush Gave To Me by Shani Petroff is basically what I wanted out of a holiday YA romance book. Unfortunately it has kind of ruined other books for me. I mean, now that I am getting into reading other holiday books after this one, I find myself irritated. They aren’t as snappy or as page turning as this book was. What I am trying to get at is that I really enjoyed My New Crush Gave To Me and would be confident recommending it if you want something Christmas themed and fast.

Shani Petroff’s My New Crush Gave To Me follows main character Charlie who is a co-editor of the newspaper and trying to land a date for this girl Noelle’s birthday party. Charlie sets her cap for Teo Ortiz who is quarterback of the football team, allegedly good looking, and a real go getter just like her. Her plan to win him over basically has her rigging secret Santa so she draws his name. She relies on JD, his cousin, for help coming up with gifts. JD annoys her but she’ll put up with him if it means getting what she wants. Of course you guys YOU GUYS you already know how this is going to play out — all that time spent with someone annoying at first? YEP YEP. Your predictions are probably dead on but don’t let that stop you from reading this book.

Okay so I just really enjoyed my time with this book. It’s cute. It is a fast read. The characters are people that I enjoyed reading about. I am a fan of the tropes involved here. ALSO! I did not mention this, but, Charlie’s best friendship with her co-editor Morgan is awesome. It is a depiction of a healthy and supportive friendship. No backstabbing or drama. I loved it. Oh and then there’s Charlie’s mom who from what I gather is a busy doctor but also really supportive and really cares about Charlie. Like not only are the main characters fun to read about, but I liked the side characters.
