— Goodreads.com description
There are 12 AWESOME stories in this book, and I wrote down my thoughts as I read…and I didn’t even edit them. Yeah! UNFILTERED REVIEW!
Oh sweet Jesus that is some hot stuff. Kicking it off with a bang. If the whole book is this good…gah.
I have to Google who this is. A very mysterious story and I don’t get the ending but I like it. I want to know more.
Matt de la Peña:
Sweet. Made me feel thankful, which is a very X-massy thing. Why haven’t I read his books yet? Must remedy this.
ELVES! THIS STORY IS ABOUT ELVES! What! Jenny Han, who are you?! Also: Ahhh, the heartbreak begins. There you are, Jenny. It was only a matter of time before this book took a heartache turn…so good, though. Bittersweet! Can this be a Hallmark Channel holiday movie?
Mid-book thought: Can this book please never end?
Sooooo her. Love her characters. And their makeouts.
Ahhh, it reminds me of the uncertainty that comes with being a teenager.
I should have read this book without knowing who wrote what and then guessed. This felt very Holly Black to me. Strange, but enjoyable.
Finding myself dissatisfied that short stories means so little time with the characters. But I’m enjoying that the writers still get me to latch on to them and CARE so quickly.
Another sweet one. I like that she did a boy point-of-view.
I’m running out of ways to say these stories are “cute.” Again, I want to know more about these characters!!!
I liked the Hollywood stuff. These stories are going too fast!
Again, I wish I’d read this blind. I think I’d know this was her in a heartbeat. Quirky ancient world-building.
OMG WHY IS THIS BOOK OVER I WANT 12 MORE STORIES AT LEAST.
Okay, so good. Read this. The end.
