Hi guys! I’m back today for Blogmas day 22 and today I’m bringing two more mini-reviews. As you might know I’m re-reading My True Love Gave to Me, edited by Stephanie Perkins. This book is a collection of twelve short stories related to the this season of the year. Today I’m going to be reviewing Beer Buckets and Baby Jesus by Myra McEntire and Welcome to Christmas, CA by Kiersten White.
Beer Buckets and Baby Jesus
Once again, I have never read anything by the author but I did enjoy this short story. It wasn’t one of my favorites and I had a few problems with it but I did like it. I did think that this was a cute story and I liked that it had the good girl, bad boy kind of thing. Actually, this story made me think of one of my favorite movies, A Walk to Remember because Vaughn and Gracie are a little bit like Landon and Jamie and when they’re doing the Christmas show and that made me like this short story a little bit more. Also, both Jamie and Gracie are the pastor’s daughter. This story really makes me think about that movie.
Welcome to Christmas, CA
This is another short story from an author I’ve never read anything from and another one of my favorite stories from this book. I really enjoyed it. I loved the characters and the environment. The main characters were cute every time they were together and I loved how it was about cooking and trying to make people happy. Another thing I loved was how it had some kind of magical elements.
This is all I have to say in this mini-review. If I say more stuff I will spoil someone and I don’t want to do that. Have you read My True Love Gave to Me? If so what did you think about this short story?
