Synopsis: 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.
Disclaimer: I received this book/ebook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are genuinely my own.
My True Love Gave to Me was a fun and easy read for the holiday season. Of the 12 stories, I really loved three of them, two of them were questionable and the rest were pretty good.
There was a nice range of stories, from true YA to some that felt more like NA (new adult) as the characters were out of high school. It was a great opportunity to check out some authors that I haven't previously read. Through the three stories that I enjoyed the most, I was introduced me to Rainbow Rowell, Stephanie Perkins and Kiersten White, which I haven't ready anything they've written previously. I've already finished my first Rainbow Rowell title, and I'm glad that I got a sampling of her writing in this anthology because otherwise I would have missed out on reading a wonderful writer.
