My True Love Gave To Me

Finished My True Love Gave to Me, edited by Stephanie Perkins.  I received a copy from the publisher for review.

Summary (from Goodreads):

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. Whether you enjoy celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah, Winter Solstice or New Year’s there’s something here for everyone. So curl up by the fireplace and get cozy. You have twelve reasons this season to stay indoors and fall in love.

This is absolutely perfect for the holiday season.  These 12 stories are sweet and funny (some) and creepy (some) and a little sad.  In short, no matter your mood, you’ll find something here that perfectly suits it.  (And if you’re not exactly in a celebratory frame of mind, you’ll find something that will cheer you up.)

In case you’re not a huge fan of contemp YA, you’ll be happy to know there are a few of a paranormal bent (although most are contemp).

It’s probably not surprising that my favorite one is the Gayle Forman one, but so many of these are just phenomenal.
