Review: I got this book back when it first came out, because I’m a big fan of mast of the  authors in the  anthology. but, fun fact about me- I’m not a fan of Christmas. So it has been years (since I got it in 2014) that has been sitting on my shelf, but just this past Christmas(2017) I was finally in the mood to read it. I am so happy I did! I really loved the twists of the unquiet twelve holiday stories! Not always happy but bittersweet- with just a touch of darkness, thank you Holly Black. I would have to say my favorite stories were

Beer Bucks and Baby Jesus by Myra McEntire

Welcome to Christmas, CA by Kiersten White

What the Hell Have You Done, Sophie Roth? by Gayle Forman

Krampuslauf by Holly Black

Polaris  is Where You’ll Find Me by Jenny Han

In the end there were many stories that I wished had more to them, because that’s what good stories do to you. They always leave you wanting to know more.
