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.
Whether you enjoy celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah, Winter Solstice or New Year's there's something here for everyone. So curl up by the fireplace and get cozy. You have twelve reasons this season to stay indoors and fall in love.
This anthology was just so stinking cute! From the first story of a series of New Year's Eve parties, to the last story of December courtship in a strange world, this book had a lot! And it was diverse, too, with various races and some LGBT characters!
My favourites from this story? In order that there were in the story, Midnights, It's a Yuletide Miracle, Charlie Brown, Welcome to Christmas, CA, and The Girl Who Woke the Dreamer. I enjoyed all of them, but these were my favourites, they were sweet, funny, creative, and interesting!
I was confused with Polaris is Where You'll Find Me, because it ended weirdly, it's hard for me to find the words. She's in love with him, but he gives her the address of the guy she met. And then it ends. Bah!
For Beer Buckets and Baby Jesus, I wouldn't be surprised if A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks wasn't an inspiration, because hey, troublesome boy and preacher's daughter with a single dad? And a play to put on? Yeah. That was pretty great!
Yeah, this book was just so stinking cute, I just loved it!
