On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me ...This beautiful collection features twelve gorgeously romantic stories set during the festive period, by some of the most talented and exciting YA authors writing today. The stories are filled with the magic of first love and the magic of the holidays.
This was an absolutely adorable Christmas anthology. With some of my favourite authors as well as well-known but so far unread by me, there were some stories I was looking forward to more than others but I honestly loved each and every one.
A few of my favourites were, of course, Rainbow Rowell's, Matt de la Pena's and Stephanie Perkins'. These were all contemporary love stories and all very adorable in their normal, Christmas-y miracle way. Holly Black's and Laini Talyor's had a magical, mystical element to them that worked very well, especially in such a short story.
I read a story every day in the run up to Christmas which really helped my Christmas spirit among all the work! A great mix of styles and settings but all full of Christmas love.
