And her cousins call her Orphan Annie.

I think it worked…. Definitely pick this up witu you want a funny and sweet contemporary YA novel for the holidays! Exchanged tons of advice.

Holly Dayton is about to go way out of her comfort zone. Bates’ writing is funny, actually laugh-out-loud kind of funny!

I liked the plot of this story, even though it’s not exactly an original one. Creating these doodles has become an integral part of my process, but there really is no magic short-cut to writing a novel. I was pretty amazed myself…that my family managed to keep it a secret.

Review of “Decked With Holly” by Marni Bates | Rhapsody in Books Weblog

It took all my will power to get through the CM chapters. In a good way. Marni Bates Author Marni Bates still can’t believe she falls in love with fictional characters for a living. The Narration was amazing and I liked it very much. Making him by far the cutest knight in all of history.

All of the girl hate, slut-shaming, and generally unpleasant cliche teen characters were straight up bstes at best. Nick was all but nice to her sometimes, but she would get all her claws out and act as though he had just told her that he wanted her dead.

Taking a Christmas cruise with her two cousins from hell isn’t Holly’s idea of a good time. What a cute, Christmassy, fake romance!

Dec 10, Cecelia batse it it was ok. I mean, I get to write novels for a living. Her ability to act whenever 3. It’s a shame the one she chose came with it’s own set of problems.

For starters, I loved Holly. And when I get to the editing stage, I ask my barista for a triple shot. Hol,y then I impressed a whole bunch of travelers with jolly happy dance. Now editing is not my favorite part of the editing process. I didn’t expect to finish it this fast but honestly the plot was moving so flawlessly that I really enjoyed how it all played out so we Holly who is basically the Cinderella of her family who finds herself stuck into marhi fake relationship with a famous rock star Dominic and how will she deal with it in a pan of four days.

I didn’t have a huge problem with the story it’s just the romantic development wasn’t convincing for me. Although that might have something to do with all the adrenaline pumping through my system.
