    I often do not write my thoughts on books I give three or less stars, mostly because I do not like to say negative things in reviews, unless there is something I read that offends me (which is definitely not the case here). I am truly Scrooge when it comes to the holidays so I think th...

    My rating can be taken with a grain of salt. I?m generally not too terribly fond of anthologies, but with contributors like Winter, Bramhall, and Keeley, I couldn?t pass it up. If I could sum up my impression of all 11 of these stories in one word, that word would be...cute. De...

    "Language of Love' is a holiday anthology filled with some of the best short stories and novellas by many of the most outstanding authors that Ylva has. I chose to read this anthology because of the list of authors. I didn't even realize it was a holiday anthology until I began to read...

    I received a free advance review copy from the publisher of this anthology in exchange for my honest review. This is a fun, Christmas themed collection of short stories. Whether by accident or design, the short-stories are all very different in style, tone, and how they choose to en...

    Usually when it comes to collections of short stories the quality is pretty variable. I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed all but one of these stories quite a bit. And the one I didn't like I think was just personal preference, not quality of writing or story. ...

    An enjoyable, well-curated set of short stories by a range of authors including Lee Winter. More from her, in all forms of writing, would be appreciated. She remains top-shelf, even in the abbreviated doses of her work that the public has received recently. ...

    Enjoyed the majority of these short stories, many written by new and old favourite authors. Highlights for me were Lee Winter?s peek into a dysfunctional family Christmas dinner and childhood friends meeting when one is home for Christmas in India by Sheryn Muir. I loved spending...

    3.5 to 4*. As with any short story collection, there's bound to be some that one likes over others. It's the same with this anthology. But I count it as a win when I do enjoy majority of the stories. The rest are okay, nothing bad, just did not resonate with me as much as the others. ...

    The Friend by Lee Winter - 3.56 Queensland, Australia Had to reread beginning to remember this one. A young woman takes her girlfriend (who she calls 'her friend') back to the place that her parents (and her) briefly stayed in when her parents were out of work (and she herself was ...

    Worth every penny! This is a fabulous collection of winter holiday themed stories with loads of humor, an abundance of strong female characters and a broad variety so if you're in the mood for intense and heavy, or more light and fluffy storylines, this anthology covers the bases we...

    If you're looking for a book of decent short stories to very short novellas that revolve around the holiday season, then this is for you. There were a lot of stories that just ran together, but a couple of the memorable entrees were from Lee Winter and Andrea Bramhall. There was also a...

    Language of love. A series of short festive stories, I can?t say many of them stood out for me, only two I can say I really enjoyed which are Fiona Zedde?s Grand market bliss and Andrea Bramhall?s The night before Christmas, I did skip through a few because I found them boring, ...

    . I enjoyed this anthology since it had stories written by some of my favourite writers, and I enjoyed the diversity of it all but there weren't many stories that really got me invested or made me wish I could read more about the main characters. I think my favourite stories were ?...

    ?Language of Love? is a lovely, heart-warming collection of festive stories from some well-known lesbian fiction authors. We go from Australia with Lee Winter, to India with Sheryn Muir and to Lola Keeley?s Edinburgh Hogmanay. There are also stories from Wales, Cumbria, the US an...

    I don't normally read short stories, anthologies. Apparently I was totally wrong about this. I bought the book for the cover art. It must have been reviewed on The Lesbian Review Book Club. I loved it. I loved every story. I felt like Santa peaking into so many different holiday tr...

    This was a very good quality collection of eleven Holiday shorts. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed by how good most of the stories were. Maybe it was that I?m in a Halloween mood, not even thinking about Christmas yet, I was not as excited to read this. Once I realized I knew...

    This anthology really has something for everybody but as a consequence I found I didn't exactly love every story. I won't dwell on the ones that didn't grab me, however, as there were more than a few festive tales that are utterly brilliant (and in very different ways). I'd half expect...

    Festive short stories from a collection of good authors. Each one is themed around Christmas and covers a variety of different settings. Delightful to read, probably best at Christmas when seeking solitude from family invasions. Arc received from Ylva for honest review. ...

    This was a delightful and diverse collection of winter/ holiday celebration themed short stories to read, especially up here in the great white north where it has snowed a few times already! I always love getting a little taste of my favourite authors work while I wait for their next n...

    This is Ylva Publishing?s 2018 anthology of stories for the end of the year holiday season. It contains short stories from some of their most popular authors, including Lee Winter, Andrea Bramhall, Alex K. Thorne, Fiona Zedde and Sheryn Munir ? all authors whose work I admire. I...

    Cute front cover and all the stories are really well written. A great collection that is truly multicultural. You get a lot of stories in one book with some very good authors at the top of their game. The friend - gritty and enthralling and captured the meanest of generational jealous...

    I totally loved this book. You can find love in all different ways. There are endearing, revealing, loving stories. Also sad, happy and funny stories. There is young love as well as not so young. There is mistery, suspense. You can find a great variety in the stories and it's totally w...

    This is a collection of short stories with Christmas time, or Chanukah in one case, as the theme. Most also have a little romance in them, some from an established relationship and some from the first connection with a hint of things to come. It is an enjoyable anthology although I enj...

    I never know how to properly review a collection of holiday short stories with various writers. Some were amazing, others were great, one thing for sure was that they all made a great anthology before the holidays. I loved that Language of Love allowed me to read again from writers ...

    I got on the "Freebie" bandwagon and grabbed this on Christmas Day, trying to drag out the holiday feels, if you will. Normally I am not a short-story fan, because it's frustrating to even minutely invest in any of the characters when I know this ditty is only going to last a few pages...

    An enjoyable collection of festive short stories. I enjoyed and would love more from all the authors! To me a great short makes me want more of that couple and not want to see them go so soon! I definitely got that here. I?m looking forward to their future works and I?m hoping for ...
