My Thoughts

Wish Upon a Christmas Star was a wonderful collection of stories perfect for the holiday season. Featuring six retellings of old classics, each written by a different author, it has something for anyone who has ever loved fairy tales.

I enjoyed all six stories a great deal. That's not always the case for me and boxed sets. There's usually at least a couple that I don't care for, but that wasn't the case with this one. I loved them all. My favorites were The Way You Look at Me and Henry's Holiday Charade, but they were all really good.

The unique twists to beloved fairytales, the great characters, and the uplifting feel-goodness make this collection a must read this holiday. I had only read one of the authors before, so it was nice to find five more to add to my ever-growing reading list.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and comments are my honest opinion.
