Summary (taken from Goodreads): 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.
I didn't find a story I disliked in this collection. Of course I preferred some over others, but every one was well-written and sweet. The only thing better than reading this for the first time will be a few months from now, when I (hopefully) make time for a reread as the snow falls.

The stories themselves all felt unique and they didn't fall into any sort of routine - it was clear that they were written by different authors with different ideas, and they really stood out on their own because of that. It also gave the collection a great variety - I do think that anybody looking for a holiday read can find something in this book.

Overall, these were some amazing stories by great authors. I highly recommend it.
