My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories edited by Stephanie Perkins

Release date: October 14, 2014

The air is getting a little colder, the nights are getting a little longer and pretty soon there will be way too early advertizements and never-ending carols in the mall. If you'd like to get into the holiday spirit in a cozier way, you'll want to put My True Love Gave to Me on your wish list.

Stephanie Perkins has put together twelve of YA's favorite authors for this holiday potluck. There's all the things that you'd want at a YA potluck too, New Years kisses, mistletoe and mysterious strangers. There's also a church barn that's accidentally set on fire, latkes on campus and a visit from Krampus. Some are alone on their holidays and some really wish they were alone instead of with family. There's a good mix of realistic fiction and stories that are tinged with magic.

This is the perfect book to curl up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate. It's perfect for a snow day (and the Farmer's Almanac says we ought to be getting a few of those this winter!) and each story does an amazing job of sucking you right into the story in just a few pages!

If you haven't read books by some of these authors before, My True Love Gave to Me will give you a great taste of what you've been missing. And if you happen to have favorite authors among the twelve, this collection will give you a small something to love while you wait for the next book from them!
