Its Christmas soon and what better way to be in the festive mood than to read a book about the season of giving? So far, I had two and I pick them up one year after the other but I never read them and they were on my shelve for until last Friday I read one of them and I pick this one. So I started t...

Here is an old review of mine, perfect for the holiday season! An overall rating is hard to come by, because I feel like it is not fair to everyone. I rated stories for many different reasons. The lower ratings do not come down to bad writing by any means, but to my tastes, and what type of storie...

My True Love Gave to Me is an anthology of winter holiday stories. Most of the stories feature Christmas as the holiday, although a couple tried to be a bit different.

A very mixed bag; a few I enjoyed, but overall not one I personally felt super enthusiastic about. I often feel ambivalent about anthologies, especially those featuring many different authors. I did, however, like Kelly Link’s Tam Lin story, which was the main reason I read it.

Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for the review copy! Receiving a copy did not affect my views.Like most anthologies, some stories in here were gems and some were hmm-okay and I thought one was why-is-this-even-included. In general, I enjoyed reading this anthology as evidenced by the f...

Book Review – My True Love Gave To Me: Twelve Holiday Stories Christmas tree is up and the music is playing. Wrapped up in a sweater two sizes too big, with a large cup of hot chocolate and a Christmas book in hand. And what’s better is a collection of twelve Christmas stories in one. Midnights...

As a whole, this collection gets one star. Out of 12 (supposedly cute) stories, I only read four of them the whole way through. This was either because I simply wasn't interested in the story or because I was disgusted by some of the content. Ugh. I wantedcute and fluffy Christmas stories, like the ...
