Teaser Tuesday: My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories edited by Stephanie Perkins

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories edited by Stephanie Perkins.

My True Love Gave To Me –
St. Martin’s Press

Shame leads to secrets, and secrets lead to lies, and lies ruin everything. Especially friendships.
— Beer Buckets & Baby Jesus by Myra McEntire

“I’m pretty sure you spice your cookies with something illegal.”
“Cinnamon is not a controlled substance.”
— Welcome to Christmas, CA by Kiersten White

Season Greetings, dear readers! I hope that you have some holiday cheer ... or at least a kind of weather that is less wet and stormy as my current location. But who wants a white Christmas, when you can have a green, wet, and stormy one? Especially if you have a collection of brilliant, holiday-spirited short stories to keep you company. I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of the narrations. I even wish that some of them were longer and that I could have the chance to get to know more of the characters, but that is often the beauty of such stories that they leave the rest to you imagination. And no matter if you celebrate Christmas or the Winter Solstice or Hanukkah, these cute love stories will certainly bring cheer to your bookshelf.

What are your experiences with short story collections? Love them? Not so much? Indifferent? Let’s hear from you in the comments. Have a very merry Christmas, if you celebrate, and in any case a lovely week.

Along with the two books that I'm reading, I'm also reading Christmas shorts to get me in the holiday spirit especially when Southern California is having a weird weather as usual.
