My personal Rating-

Eeeee! This was such a cute novella collection! Even though a couple of them did feel very short, I did really enjoy all of them—but especially that last one. 😉 All of the novellas were so sweet and had great messages to be reminded of during the Christmas season.

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!
