Hello bookworms and bookish people alike! Today I am ecstatic to be share with you my 5* review for The Twelve Dates of Christmas and why this should DEFINITELY be on your Christmas reading list this year!

Out of all of Lisa's books, hands down, The Twelve Dates of Christmas is my ALL time favourite of hers. It has everything you could want from a Christmas book. It's light-hearted, it's funny, it's cosy and it literally has the ability to feel all Christmassy and festive no matter what month of the year it is!
The Twelve Dates of Christmas was originally released as a 6 part ebook series back in 2013 and I got up to date 6 before my Kobo went kaput and guttingly I couldn't read any further :( but two years on and the absolutely gorgeous paperback version as come out and I was able to get all cosy and festive reading it. The story put simply is about Claudia and her twelve dates of Christmas and it is hilarious to read some of dates that she goes on. Claudia is just one of those characters that you can't help but adore and her friends Nick and Penny are equally adorable. Characters I have added to my best fictional friends list (you can have book boyfriends so why not book friends lol). 
What really stood out the most for me about this book as it is a Christmassy book that properly made me feel festive. Everything that makes you think of Christmas is referenced at almost every opportunity and it was blooming marvellous. Some Christmas books don't quite manage to achieve this, so a big thumbs up to Lisa for calling a Christmas book a Christmas book and making it so.
 Lisa also has this ability to make you laugh and feel good with her effortless writing. Her humour is top notch at making you snigger, snort and guffaw at so much. It's just so on time and quick, brilliant.
I don't want to say too much more as if you haven't yet read this, I do not want to spoil the absolute treat you are in for.
A funny, cosy, lighthearted and positively festive read that is THE book you should be reading this Christmas!
