    1. 3.5 starsRead this for 12 Tasks of the Festive Season:Task the Sixth: The Hanukkah:- Let the dreidel choose a book for you: create a list of four books, and assign a dreidel symbol to each one (Nun=miracle; Gimel=great; He=happened; Shin=there, i.e. Israel). Google "spin the dreidel," and a dreidel comes up for you to spin. Give it a spin and read the book that the dreidel chooses!Not to sound all "get off my lawn!" but reading older published stories (they have their problems too) is sometimes [...]

    2. Another Signet Christmas Anthology, the common theme here is Spirits although they can come in various forms:The Merry Wanderer - Nancy ButlerJulia is the Lady of Islay, after the death of her father she is now the keeper of a special book that is invaluable for the fairy world. Robin is the being sent to see if she will be a good keeper or find her a husband that is. An ok read but not memorable.

    3. I liked some of the stories better than others. I like reading anthologies when I am in search of new authors. It gives me a glimpse of their style and character development.

    4. I must first say, I ABSOLUTELY HATED “A Gathering of Gifts” by Andrea Pickens, and it's because of that one I'm giving this anthology two stars which otherwise would have been three or four. “The Merry Wanderer” by Nancy Butler : 3 stars. Enjoyable, especially liked how it combined old myths with regency setting. An okay read.“The Wexford Carol” by Emma Jensen If it weren't for how the story ended, I'd give it three stars, but the unexpected discovery was a nice touch. 4 stars.“Hig [...]

    5. Five Regency-era short stories with a different understanding regarding 'spirits'.Nancy Butler's The Merry Wanderer refers to Robin Goodfellow, a fairy in human form, whom meets Julia Fitzwalter and her brother Harry several days before Christmas. He is visiting their home to make sure a special book that was left in their now-deceased father's safekeeping is still being taken care of. A scheming cousin plans to own the ancient cache, possibly to use for darker purposes. Robin is determined to f [...]

    6. Collections are my favorite things to read when I'm lazier than usual and I wanted to read something. The first story, The Merry Wanderer, I liked because of the characters from Arthur and Midsummer Night's Dream. Otherwise, it was blah. But that's probably because I was annoyed with the heroine for not loving the books (more like library) she inherited. I'd die of happiness if I inherited a library. LOLOLOL. The second story, The Wexford Carol, I liked because of the heroine and all the history [...]

    7. I am keeping this one because three of the stories were really good and I have made note of the two I didn't like so that next Christmas I will not bother reading them.
