My True Love Gave To Me
Twelve Holiday Stories
Edited by Stephanie Perkins

Flap Copy Description:
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 the international bestselling 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.

My Thoughts:
While I've not yet read all the holiday stories in this fantastic anthology, I've read enough to know that My True Love Gave To Me is a book worth recommending - especially before the holidays have faded away. So far, my favorite story is: Polaris Is Where You'll Find Me, by Jenny Han; but with authors like Holly Black, David Levithan, and other well-known writers, I'm anticipating great stories all around. And who wouldn't enjoy an anthology this time of year? You might be too busy with all the festivities of the season to finish an entire novel, but everyone has time to read a short story!

NOTE: Today I'm over at Loree Huebner's blog discussing my book, The Scandinavian Santa. She has posted an author/illustrator interview featuring myself, and my husband - fine artist Michael Lindstrom.

  1. That was a nice interview. I enjoyed learning how you and Michael collaborated on this charming book. The pictures and text really work so well together.
