My Thoughts
This book came into my life just at the right time. I was looking for Romance and some Holiday spirit, and I found just want I needed. I also thought I should get it from the library before the holiday rush. I enjoyed this book for the most part, I really enjoyed some of the stories in this book and there were others I could care less about.

My favourite stories in the anthology were Midnights by Rainbow Rowell and It's A Yuletide Miracle, Charlie Brown by Stephanie Perkins. Midnights was very bittersweet and it reminded me of New Years Eves of my past. I was super flustered after reading this story for hours, so many memories. Also, Stephanie Perkins story was so sweet that I nearly melted. I loved how the story was told and how the romance unfolded. I really want to pick up her other romances now, they have been added to my ever growing TBR. 

However, there were stories that I really didn't enjoy which brought my rating down. I also find it hard to get into short story collections. I get connected to one story then it just ends and I have to connect with another right after. It's exhausting! But I do think there is something for everyone in this collection and if you are looking for some holiday romance check these out.
