This was the perfect festive read. Such a lovely collection of short stories.

there were a few stores that specifically stood out to me, so i thought i would just give each of those a *very* mini review.

Midnight by Rainbow Rowell. SO CUTE! I just wanted to keep reading more and more. Further proof that Rainbow Rowell is utterly brilliant.

It's a Yuletide Miracle, Charlie Brown by Stephanie Perkins. I adored this. I wish it could have been longer. Stephanie Perkins's books always manages to make me fall in love.

What the Hell Have You Done, Sophie Roth by Gayle Forman. Super cute. Really enjoyed the plot and the characters were great.

Welcome to Christmas, CA by Kiersten White. Loved this a lot!! I loved the characters and the storyline was so intriguingly lovely.

Star of Bethlehem by Ally Carter. I really, really enjoyed this story. It had such an original storyline which I think worked really well. The characters were great. Another short story I almost wish had been a full length novel.

Overall this was such a fun read, An anthology i would highly recommend!

I loved this book! I am just going to review all of it in general, but I might mention some of my favourite of the short stories. I don't usually go for contemporary, but wanted a festive read so I bought this one. I'm so glad I did!

Prior to reading this book, I had never read any of the works by the 12 authors. Reading My True Love Gave To Me inspired me to read all of the books by Stephanie Perkins, who wrote my favourite short story- It's A Yuletide Miracle, Charlie Brown. I loved this one because it was so cute, and the characters were really believable and sweet.

I enjoyed all of these stories, with the exception of one; The Lady And The Fox. I'm not sure why I disliked this one; probably because of the characters. Miranda really annoyed me, and I didn't vouch for her at all.

All in all, I would give this book four and a half stars out of five because of the letdown story The Lady And The Fox. Apart from that, I loved this book and will definitely read again at CHristmas in years to come!
So. Cute!!
