  1. I've read some great reviews on My True Love Gave To Me which features so many wonderful authors! I can't wait to see what you think. I need to do this as well. I've actually been in the mood to dig into some some great and epic feeling like Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin, which I really want to read just for me :)

  4. I read Let It Snow several years ago. Lauren Myracle is one of my favorite authors, but I think I remember her story was not my favorite in that book. I'm pretty sure I liked John Green's more...and I'm generally not a fan. I did like how the stories were related though. That was a nice touch. Hope you enjoy it!

    1. The main reason I liked them was because they were all connected. I always love that.

  5. I am not sure if you've finished My True Love Gave to Me yet but I hope you are enjoying it! I have this one too and am looking forward to reading it but i've decided to hold off until school is over which is about two week's before Christmas - I hope this will help me unwind and get in the Christmas spirit! Good luck on your challenge!
