Review: My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

If you love holiday stories, holiday movies, made-for-TV-holiday specials, holiday episodes of your favorite sitcoms and, especially, if you love holiday anthologies, you’re going to fall in love with MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME: TWELVE HOLIDAY STORIES by twelve bestselling young adult writers, edited by international bestselling author Stephanie Perkins.



Review: so I have recently dipped back into these short stories because there were some that i didn't read last Christmas and I'm just not the type of person who can read Christmas books outside of Christmas time, once it hits time to go back to school in January, I'm done, that's it. 

So I really enjoyed this collection of short stories and think that it is such a good idea for the festive period to have this little collection because it is a busy time of year and so to have one to read when you have time between Christmas movies and all the holiday shopping is fab. I liked to read one at bedtime, a little like the bedtime stories from when I was younger. I think my favourite of the bunch was Welcome to Christmas CA by Kiersten White, it was just a little different from the others and also different from the other YA Christmas plots I had heard before. 

Although this is obviously a collection of YA authors, I don't think that this book is aimed entirely at the YA audience, I mean I loved it.I think having and collection like this, at this time of year, is extremely helpful and definitely something that anyone could dip in an out of. There is comedy, romance and lots of very strong stories in their own right. This is definitely a must-read for the holiday season!
