Why I'm waiting on MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME...

During the holiday season, I always look for little things to help me get into the spirit of things - I find that as I get older, it gets harder and harder to focus, to keep traditions, to be at peace with the true meaning of Christmas... I have only found two other books that help me get through the season; and I'm hoping that this one will be my third! 

Plus! Totes adorbs cover!!!

AND!!! Let's take a look at all of those amazing authors: 
Stephanie Perkins, Holly Black, Ally Carter, 
Gayle Forman, Jenny Han, David Levithan, 
Kelly Link, Myra McEntire, Rainbow Rowell, 
Laini Taylor, and Kiersten White!!!

YES to ALL!!! 

SO, what are you waiting for this week???


  1. I love Christmas stories so I'm very excited for this and it has lots of great authors!

    My WOW

  2. I can't wait for this book either, last year something like this came out but it was NA, there were some authors who I was disappointed in but all considered it wasn't bad. I hope this will be amazing, I'm going to put it aside until a few days before Christmas and then read it in one day, lol.
    Great pick!
