Crushable Books: The Best Holiday Novels

Crushable Books: The Best Holiday Novels

I’m a big fan of giving books as presents. First of all, they show the person that you’re gifting that you consider them smart and literary.

In fact, we are so behind in coping with the holidays that we’re starting to feel like the poor sap from the above scene in Mean Girls, where Lacey Chabert kicks a boom box into the face of her beloved high school crush.

We have a feeling that some of you Crushable readers are also feeling a bit underprepared for Christmas. So over the next two weeks, we’ll be bombarding you with tips and tricks to survive the holidays (read: get the vodka ready). More »
