My Review:

Since this book is a little different, I thought I would do a little more creative review.  So, here are my reactions to each holiday story in the form of Supernatural GIFs (you're welcome).


1. "Midnights" by Rainbow Rowell


2. "The Lady and the Fox" by Kelly Link


3. "Angels in the Snow" by Matt de la Pena


4. "Polaris is Where You'll Find Me" by Jenny Han


5. "It's a Yuletide Miracle, Charlie Brown" by Stephanie Perkins


6. "Your Temporary Santa" by David Levithan


7. "Krampuslauf" by Holly Black


8. "What the Hell Have You Done, Sophie Roth?" by Gayle Forman


9.  "Beer Buckets and Baby Jesus" by Myra McEntire


10. "Welcome to Christmas, CA" by Kiersten White


11. "Star of Bethlehem" by Ally Carter


12. "The Girl Who Woke the Dreamer" by Laini Taylor


Okay, but for real.  This is such a fun book! The stories were so cute and fun to read, and they definitely got me into the holiday spirit. Yes, a couple of them were weird and confusing (as you can probably tell from the gifs). But overall, I really did enjoy reading this book as a whole.
