Review: My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories – Stephanie Perkins et al

20309175If 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.

Rating: 4/5

Wonderfully feel-good and festive. A perfect collection of pick-me-up stories. Maybe it was just the mood I was in when I read this collection, but it was light and sweet, if predictable, but exactly what I needed.

Have challenged myself to 3 word summaries of the stories:

Rainbow Rowell: Finally They Kiss
Kelly Link: Orphans. Time-travel. Foxes.
Matt de le Pena: Starving Amateur Plumber.
Jenny Han: Awkward Outcast. Elves.
Stephanie Perkins: Christmas Tree Shenanigans.
David Levithan: Fake Jewish Santa
Holly Black: Boy With Hooves.
Gayle Forman: Race Class Lines
Myra McEntire: Troublemaker. Preacher’s Daughter.
Kiersten White: Magical Christmas Chef
Ally Carter: Incognito Flight Swap
Laini Taylor: MOST FABULOUSLY MAGICAL CREEPY DARKISH DELICIOUS STORY I AM AWARE THIS IS MORE THAN THREE WORDS BUT IT IS THE BEST OF THE BOOK AND THEREFORE DESERVING OF ALL THE DESCRIPTIONS! *THROWS CONFETTI*
