The Trouble With Elves

The Trouble With Elves - Therese Woodson This little gem of a book gets all the stars, because it is wonderful!!!

I actually read most of it at night, and found myself giggling or straight up laughing like an idiot more often than not, both of which were probably not appreciated by anyone who was sleeping in my house.

I loved everything about it! Cal and his hatred of Christmas, especially Christmas songs, Xander being so adorable I just wanted to hug him, and Brock! Oh, how I adored Brock. He was hilarious and his conversations with Cal killed me.

“So when Dad launches in about baseball,” Cal said, toeing at a misplaced brick on the sidewalk.
“I swoop in and remind him of my questionable choices regarding traffic violations.”
Cal nodded. “Good choice. Nothing gets him more riled than the fact that you don’t drive anymore.”
Brock nudged Cal with his shoulder. “And when Sandy starts talking about the neighbor’s sister’s daughter who is so sweet and nice….”
“I comment on the neighbor’s sister’s son’s ass and remind her that I’m gay.”
Brock held out a fist. “Fist bump of solidarity, bro.”
Cal thumped his knuckles against Brock’s. “We only survive together.”

So, I recommend this feel-good story 100 %! :)
