PUBLISHER:  Macmillian Children's Books
AGE GROUP: 13+
RATING:  5/5

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.


This novel is for cold winter nights- snuggling by the fire, wrapped up in a blanket and sipping a mug of steamy hot chocolate. You can pick and choose what short story takes your fancy; this is the beauty of , "My True Love Gave to Me." There are a variety of stories that you can read, you don't have the pressure of reading a large book all at once. It would be the perfect book to read, if you were in a reading slump!

There are a lot of popular contributors to the novel, such as: Stephanie Perkins, Rainbow Rowell, David Levithan and Ally Carter. My favourite short story was: It's A Yuletide Miracle, Charlie Brown, by Stephanie Perkins. I also liked Your Temporary Santa, by David Levithan. The main idea of each short story is two protagonists, falling in love, each story is completely different in some way, each of the characters have totally different, unique personalities. Each author has brought their own fabulous writing style to the book- I was gripped from page to page. the length of the stories being just right, so I wouldn't get bored. The cover also appealed to me- how beautiful can a book cover get? I felt privileged to read it!

Overall, this novel is phenomenal- it all ties together perfectly, like a fully decorated, lit up, Christmas tree. I rate it 5/5 hoots, I would give it 100 if I could, there is something for everyone in it!

  1. So many great writers who collaborated in making this book possible! I am such a huge fan of Rainbow Rowell and hearing that she's one of the writers in My True Love Game To Me, made me want to buy and read it immediately. Hopefully, I'll get a copy soon. I heard so many praises about this book too. I'm glad you loved it and it didn't disappoint.
