Holly More than 1 year ago
I received this book from the Publisher via LibraryThing.com in exchange for a honest review. Christmas, Actually is 6 short stories that are set around the time of Christmas. From dealing with a broken tooth to family chaos and new found love. Even though a couple of the stories didn't have much to do with Christmas, it's still a good read for the holiday season. I found this to be a quick read with full of quirky stories of Authors that I never heard of before and it makes me want to go read more of what they write. Thank You to all the Authors that made this book possible and wanting myself to get into that holiday spirit!
