Juliet Thinks: As you can tell from the header of this review, this book is an anthology of holiday-themed short stories with Stephanie Perkins (author of Anna and the French Kiss) as the editor. The names of the authors are certainly enough to draw the reader's attention-- Rainbow Rowell (author of Eleanor & Park), Laini Taylor (author of Daughter of Smoke & Bone).

My favorites among the stories were Rainbow Rowell's Midnight 
and Laini Taylor's The Girl Who Woke the Dreamer. There's something special about reading your favorite authors' writing under a specific setting. Also, the stories are all very quick reads, which I really appreciated because of the craziness of finals week.

This anthology will definitely get you into the holiday spirit with each of exquisitely written short stories.
