I am delighted to be jumping on the blog tour for The Twelve Christmases of You and I by Jennifer Joyce

On this wet and windy day autumn day, it is a pleasure to be sharing a review for a lovely festive read that is full of love and friendship. I loved meeting Maisie, Lily and Jonas and I hope you pick up a copy and love it as well.

My Review

This is one of those books that you pick up and immediately just want to keep reading, a wonderful festive read where you meet Maisie, Lily and Jonas who are BFF’s. Set in the lead up to Lily’s festive wedding this story see’s Maisie flash back to Christmases past and the collection of memories that she has associated to the photos in her album.

The very heart of this story is friendship and I loved reading about the past adventures of Maisie and her friends and the bond that they shared. You first meet them as Maisie’s parents have moved and Lily is her new next door neighbour. The references in this book remind me of my childhood in the 80’s / 90’s and I loved the memories this book triggered for me as I read about Maisie’s past Christmases.

Christmas is my favourite time of year, I love the traditions and family time and this story was brimming with Christmas spirit and wonderful traditions. I loved the photo albums that Maisie and Lily were reminiscing over and how the photos played such a major role throughout the story.

A story full of love that I loved and would highly recommend adding to your festive TBR pile this year.

Book Blurb

What if you could go back in time and fix the biggest mistake of your life?

Two years ago, Maisie’s best friend walked out of her life and she hasn’t heard from him since. When she wakes up in 1994, she naturally assumes she’s dreaming. But when she finds herself in the past again the next night and her actions in the dream alter her present-day life, she begins to wonder if she’s somehow hopping back in time. And if she is time-travelling, can she save her friendship with Jonas?

When Maisie is forced to relive Christmases of the past, will she face up to her mistakes, or make them all over again?

The 12 Christmases of You & Me is a magical tale of friendship, first loves, and learning to live in the present.

She’s been scribbling down bits of stories for as long as she can remember, graduating from a pen to a typewriter and then an electronic typewriter. And she felt like the bee’s knees typing on THAT. She now writes her books on a laptop (which has a proper delete button and everything).

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.

  1. This sounds adorable. For some reason I am getting into the festive spirit so early this year. I think it’s out of a need to have something to look forward to, haha. I love the time travelling element to this. It’s very romance novels meets Charles Dickins.
