My True Love Gave to me edited by Stephanie Perkins
I have no words.
Well…I do have words, a lot of words for this book actually. I am rarely one to read anthologies, and never one to read Christmas themed books. Movies? Yes. Books? No. I am however, so happy that I gave this book a chance. It was incredible.
First let’s talk about that amazing cover. Oh my, it is gorgeous! Again, I have never been drawn to books that like to black out the page edges in red or gold, or in this case pink but this is a special case. It ties in so elegantly with the almost Tiffany blue cover and pink string of lights.
I was mainly draw to this book because of two of the contributing authors; Rainbow Rowell and of course Stephanie Perkins and I was pleasantly surprised with the amazing work of the other authors including Holly Black, Ally Carter, Matt de la Pena, Gayle Forman, Jenny Han, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Myra McEntice, Laini Taylor and Kiersten White.
Unsurprisingly Rainbow Rowell’s contribution was my favourite. The very first story and one that I could read again and again.
This isn’t a review but I have to say you need to run out now and pick up a copy right. This. Second.
