      Merry Christmas!!!!!! It’s that time of year we all know and love with all of the ugly sweaters, countdowns to how many minutes are left until Christmas day, ANDOh yeah, and all the Christmas books we get to enjoy. This book had 3 things going for it that initially drew me in; It's a historical m/m, it’s only 68 pages, and I needed a reality escape and thought Christmas in September would do the trick. Historicals seem to be my drug of choice lately and one of my favorite worlds to get lost [...]

      Is weird to be reading a Christmas theme book in August. I guess the holiday spirit haven't kick in yet. Yuletide Truce is an enemies to lovers short story between a small book reviewer and the town popular magazine's writer. Aigee is the underprivileged kid from the wrong side of the town and now become a respectable employee from his own hard work. Why did the famous Christopher Foreman keep eviscerating his review over and over again? They hardly know each other.There was just 68 pages and I [...]

      Eh - I wanted it to be more christmasy. And the enemies to lovers needs to be drawn out more.Review to come

      3.5 starsAlan "Aigee" Garmond works at Munro’s Bookshop as both employee as well as reviewer for the bookshop's own magazine, Munro’s Magazine (or MuMa, according the employer). Aigee loves the Yuletide season when the bookshop will have decorations on the windows. Of course everything will be perfect if not for Christopher Foreman, the Adonis of Fleet Street, a reviewer from About Town that seems to constantly rips apart Aigee's reviews. Aigee doesn't understand why Christopher seems to dis [...]

      It certainly feels weird to be reading something Christmas related in September, but the mood seemed somehow timeless to me for these kinds of stories, so there's that.This was a very entertaining enemies-to-lovers, with endearing characters (even Kit, who at first seemed a bit of an ass, revealed a certain char; and Aigee was just too cute and relatable).Just the little piece of fluff I'm always in the mood for/ in need of.This is my first time reading this author, and I'm definitely willing to [...]

      4 starsAwww, this was lovely! I love Christmas novellas (despite not being the biggest fan of Christmas) and I'm a sucker for quiet, holiday stories about lonely people finding love and companionship on what can be a difficult day to spend alone. Aigee and Christopher were well-suited, even when arguing and I loved how they ended up calling a truce in the most wonderful way. If you enjoy Christmas stories, you definitely need to add this one to your TBR.

    7. K.K. on said:

      Lovely and charming, this short holiday tale set against a Victorian Christmas backdrop gives us a glimpse into London's publishing and bookselling trade circa 1845. It subtly and skillfully contrasts and compares the vast differences between East End and West End lives and features two characters, of diametrically opposing backgrounds, who have fallen into an adversarial relationship regarding their views on the quality of current literature. Can these two men call a truce to their hostilities [...]

      Full of atmosphere, well-researched and engaging Christmas romance. I wish it was longer!

      Review soon at BMBR.A copy of this book was given in exchange for an honest review.

    10. The Novel Approach Reviews on said:

      I am such a fan of Christmas in September—or, of the holiday stories, at least—and this sweet little morsel of an enemies-to-lovers romance has thrust me right into the spirit of the season.I felt such a kinship with Alan ‘Aigee’ Garmond, based in our shared affinity for books and our love of writing about them. Aigee doesn’t have a formal education, not one that might lend credence to his opinion of the books he reviews for Munro’s Magazine, the small paper published by the bookstor [...]

      Christmas in September! Well, it is for me, anyway. This short novella was such a treat to read. I'm not usually into historicals, I don't read a lot of them, and this was my first full-length story by Sandra Schwab - I've read teasers and snippets before, but this was my first time reading a completed work by her, and I absolutely adored it.Aigee is our main character here (that's a phonetic spelling of A.G btw, in case, like me, you were wondering!). He grew up in Bethnal Green, the poor part [...]

      I received an ARC of this book from the A Novel Take PR (on behalf of the author) in exchange for an honest review. My opinion is my own. Yuletide Truce was a short and sweet m/m Christmas novella. As always, Schwab builds an excellent sense of time and place, but I wish that the romance had been a little bit more drawn out.Bookseller Alan "Aigee" Garmond loves the Christmas season, but Christopher Foreman's scathing comments in About Town magazine about Aigee's humble book reviews are putting a [...]

      4.5 Stars!!!Aigee has slowly made a better life for himself, he has a job he loves tending to a bookshop and writing book reviews for his boss, now if only Christopher Foreman would stop targeting his reviews. I absolutely loved Aigee, he was adorable. He made no apologies for his humble origins and worked hard for what he'd accomplished and while he was interested in Foreman, he still confronted him about the note he'd published ridiculing Aigee's review when they were face to face. I have to a [...]

      I got a wonderful holiday vibe from this story. The setting was very 'Dickens-esque' and the writing was beautiful and quirky - much like the main character, Aigee - who has a crush on his literary nemesis - the man-pretty blond, Kit. The insertion of real literary characters of the time - author William Makepeace Thackeray, illustrator Richard Doyle, with mentions of Dickens and others made 'Yuletide Truce' a real treat! As a short story, it could have done without one sex scene. Still, the cha [...]
