    Dit boek gaf me echt het ultieme kerstgevoel!Sommige boeken van deze auteur vind ik erg leuk, andere wat minder. Ik durfde dus een bundel met verhalen wel aan, want dan zit er vast wel wat leuks tussen.En ik zag dit boek toen ik met Rowie in Amsterdam bij de Waterstones was. Ik hou echt enorm van de kerstperiode maar ik wist toen al dat ik veel zou moeten werken, dus ik dacht dat een extra hulpje om in de kerststemming te komen misschien wel hand...

    This is a lovely collection of short christmas stories- only two have been published before. These stories are ideal to settle down to read with a nice mug of hot chocolate when making your Christmas list or taking a break from shopping. I loved Katie's books- so it was a real treat to have some shorter stories to read with a Christmas theme. It's my favourite time of year. This collection will have you reaching for the mince pies and finding a r...

    The Christmas Stocking and other stories is the second collection of festive themed short stories from Katie Fforde following on from publication of A Christmas Feast back in 2014. This new collection features six stories only two of which have been published before or featured in magazines. Those two being A Christmas in Disguise and Candlelight at Christmas. I have read and reviewed both of these before and out of the two I would say A Christma...

    Listened to in audio format.I listened to Katie Fforde's A Christmas Feast and other stories last year which I enjoyed. I was rather reluctant to buy this collection because I thought I may already own the stories. When The Christmas Stocking was released I was pleased I had only read a Candlelight at Christmas, I was happy to listen to it again.My favourite stories were A Dream Christmas which had a supernatural feel. The Christmas Stocking and ...

    The six stories which make up the whole of the book have a delightful seasonal theme and feature an array of people, and animals, who very quickly make an emotional impact. I really enjoyed reading the stories and each one, when finished, left me with a smile on my face and a lovely warm glow inside. As with any short story collection, there are some which stand out more than others and my two particular favourites are The Christmas Stocking and ...

    To be fair - I only got halfway through. Am not really a lover of short stories in book form - unless they are ghost stories - or in a magazine. I have read some of Katie Ffords books some I have enjoyed whilst others I have struggled and abandoned. Sad to say this was also one but no doubt others will enjoy.

    The first thing to note is that this publication has two short stories which have previously been published around Christmas time. However they are short stories and so wonderfully written that it will do you no harm in reading them all over again - just like I have!Candlelight at Christmas (previously published) - featuring characters from Recipe in Love (which I still have not read) shows how Christmas can be as much fun, even if you have the i...

    I can always count on Katie to get me in the festive mood, I've been a huge fan since I first started reading her books about 7 or 8 years ago, and I have a shelf dedicated only to Katie's books on my bookcase. The Christmas Stocking and Other Stories, is a great collection of festive stories with two already published separately and four brand new ones. The Christmas Stocking sees Romy, a young woman selling handmade Christmas decorations at a C...

    I usually really don't like a book of short stories. If I'm buying a book (I did get this one as a gift at Christmas), then I want it full of ONE story. That being said this was a cute read. Katie Fforde is an excellent writer but I wouldn't say that you should take this book as the standard of the rest of hers, I've definitely given more stars than this before for her works. (Okay, 3.5 for A Summer at Sea, I really need to read more of Fforde!)....

    Christmas, Christmas, a whole lot of love and some more Christmas. This book of short stories is SO twee it should have a warning on the front cover! It was fun and very easy-to-read though so I've still given it 3 stars. I don't see any mention of editing issues in the other reviews but I'm sure there were some...and sloppy editing always annoy me

    Really sweet Christmassy stories from one of my favourite authors. One of the stories in this collection I had read before but this didn't stop my enjoyment of it. Really good. Loved it.

    A collection of 6 short, festive stories. Just the right length to enjoy with a cuppa on a cold December afternoon/evening.

    just perhaps 2 or 3 of the short stories worth listening and just 1 gave away a bit of a christmas feeling. Not a good year for my 2017 christmas listens so far.

    I am not usually a fan of short stories I find they can be slightly annoying as they are cut a bit too short. However with this book I really enjoyed them and found they were the perfect set of stories to get me into the christmas spirit. Each one I enjoyed listening to and found I wanted to hear the end of. My favourites had to be the christmas fairy, a dream christmas and dogs are for Christmas. Definitely a book I would recommend to get you in...
