Review:

This was another really cute story. I really liked the plot and the characters. I especially liked how important family was in this one. I also really liked the setting and it was really fast-paced. I also loved the twist in this story. Overall, it was extremely cute and I loved it.

Review:

This one was a little bit confusing for me. I think that fantasy short stories are not that well done because we need the world building to understand what’s happening and that doesn’t happen in a short story. I think I would probably like this one more if it was a full length novel. Also, this was the first time I read anything written by Laini Taylor and I really liked the writing style. I just think that this story needed a lot more pages for me to understand it and connect with it.

Review:

Overall I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. I already knew that I wouldn’t like every single story but I enjoyed most of them. For me this is a perfect Christmas read and I plan on re-reading some of these stories in the next years.


This is all I have to say in this mini-reviews. Have you read My True Love Gave to Me? If so what did you think about this short story? This also means that Blogmas is over and while it was a lot of work it was also a great thing to do. I hope you have enjoyed it 🙂 .
