My True Love Gave to Me - Twelve Winter Romances

This collection of short stories was amazing. Some were better than others in my opinion, but that's obvious because not everyone has the same taste in stories or writing. Overall this was such a fun read and I'm definitely going to reread my favourite stories again next Christmas!

MY FAVOURITES:
- It's a Yuletide Miracle, Charlie Brown by Stephanie Perkins.
     I need a North in my life!
- What the Hell Have You Done, Sophie Roth? by Gayle Forman
     This story was so relatable because have quite a lot of 'what the hell have you done' moments for myself.
- Welcome to Christmas, CA by Kiersten White
     Give me a Ben who knows exactly what food to make for me haha lol!

Stephanie Perkins' writing is just perfection!
