    1. When you take away the excerpts from other books there's only 5 stories in here and so it doesn't even take an hour to get through this book. I don't like excerpts personally and don't read them. I either want the whole book or I'll wait for it so for me this was exceptionally short. The short stories are ok but if like me that's all you want from this book you might be disappointed

    2. This is a perfect treat in bite sizes for book lovers and non readers alike. The short stories from fantastic authors to make you swoon, ahhh and ohhh. It is a perfect book for people that find books overwhelming or only like to read bite size chunks. Each story takes the reader on a different journey and each author also shares an extract from their latest book. I was lucky and found this on my kindle, not sure where it came from or when, but i am glad i found it and one thing is for sure. it c [...]

    3. This book was free when I downloaded it, but if I had I paid for it, I would have felt cheated. At least 50% of the book is previews of novels by the 5 short story authors. I skipped over these, although I did look up book reviews of some of them elsewhere. I was split over the short stories themselves. I like having something I can read in a half hour break and all these stories fitted that criteria. The first few stories I really enjoyed, although they were predictable and written to a formula [...]

Containing teasers and short features by Sunday Times bestselling authors, this brilliant book is a great seasonal read and fabulous chick-lit treasure trove.

    7. I enjoyed these stories a lot, perfect for a spare 10 minutes. I didn't realise when I bought it that it also containted beginning chapters from the author's current books too, but I didn't really mind this and it added a lot of new titles to my to-read list! The editing was far less than perfect though, and was the main thing that annoyed me. But other than that, the stories were quick, easy reads meant to make you smile and escape.

    8. Lovely collection of short stories from popular authors. I disliked the "hard sell" with the initial chapters from the author's next book. It is something I never read as it doesn't encourage me to buy it and if it was something I bought I hate to re read the start of a book. Those chapters were longer than the stories themselves!

    9. Nice quick little read - just what I wanted at the time.Most of the stories had a hint of Christmas in them - just right for this time of year.The stories were mostly just the right length, though I think the take on It's A Wonderful Life would've been better if it was longer.May look out for longer stories by these authors in the future, if I'm in the mood for something fluffy.

    10. 5 bite-sized stories all with the common these of Christmas. Some to make you smile, some to make a lump in your throat, all with the feeling of human compassion. Also includes a chapter on each author's next available novel.

    11. This is a collection of 5 short story's, each followed by an extract from each of the authors recent book publications. The stories were OK but not as engaging as I would like. Not the best book of short stories I've read. Disappointing.

    12. Perfect for the cold chilly winters as it can make you warm and snuggly in the stories themselves. The stories could have been more grasping but it was an enjoyable book that you can read with a cup of hot cocoa by the fire.

    13. Two different stories so far, sweet and festive. Oh the third was a little sad, not the Christmas feeling I was looking for. Okay the forth was depressing. Lol the last one was priceless, this is worth picking up just for the last one.

    14. Short stories were good but i was a bit annoyed with all the extras they put in. They took almost half of the book. Would rate it 2.5, so, i decided to give it only 2 stars as it didn't reach 3 for me.

    15. Disappointing! I didn't find half of these stories at all heart warming, in fact they were a tad depressing. Even the humorous feature ended up being a rant.I did enjoy "It's a Wonderful Life" and the excerpt from Miranda Dickinson.

    16. Not one of my favouritesA lot of advertising for other stories written by the authors of the tales in this book. Books that you then wish to buy as you want to know how it all pans out. Glad the book was free as was not the best reads

    17. This was a mixed bag. Each short story was accompanied by an excerpt from the authors upcoming or most recent novel. Editing was surprisingly patchy and there was a mixture of quality in the shorts and in the excerpts. On balance while it was a nice idea, it didn't work very well.

    23. This book was ok but I kind of felt it was more like an advert for the authors newly released books. The short stories were entertaining enough though for my train ride home from work.

    24. Great little wintry stories. I particularly enjoyed The Twelve Lies of Christmas by Mhairi McFarlane, very funny and oh so true. I'm going to make You Had Me at Hello as my next read.

    27. I liked these little stories as something a little different from what I usually read, there were some I liked more than other s like many other reviewers.

    28. I quite liked this book. Especially White Christmas (that is why it has 4 stars instead of 3) Be careful what you wish for easy to read story that can be read during tube stops.
