Young Adult Christmas Books: A Definitive List

Books arranged in a Christmas Tree display.

The holidays are the perfect time to get cozy with a favourite read. I have been sprinkling a few light and fluffy Christmas YA books into my reading schedule this year. There are so many different books out there that will get you in the holiday spirit. I have created the ultimate list for your Christmas reading, and I think that there is something for everyone to enjoy.

  1. Let it Snow: Three Holiday Romances by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle


2. What Light by Jay Asher

3. Ex-Mas by Kate Brian

4. Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn David and Levithan

5. The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

6. Snowed In by Rachel Hawthorne

7. Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige

8. Love on the Lifts by Rachel Hawthorne

9. Mistletoe: Four Holiday Stories by Hailey Abbott, Melissa de la Cruz, Aimee Friedman and Nina Malkin

10. Sun-Kissed Christmas by Katherine Applegate

11. Winterspell by Claire Legrand

12. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories Edited by Stephanie Perkins

13. The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand

14. Kissing Snowflakes by Abby Sher

15. Snow in Love by Claire Ray

I am loving this time I have set aside for holiday reading. If you are interested in adding any to Goodreads, I have created a shelf that you might be interested in. Do you have any holiday reads or traditions that help you get into the holiday spirit?
