    1. I won this book in a Good Reads giveaway and was intrigued by the unique theme. I am not always the biggest fan of short stories but I was keen to get started on this one.The theme of both love and Singapore made the short stories seem more cohesive than some anthologies but there was a broad range of different writing styles and topics. Some dealt with romantic love whereas others were the love for friends. Some mourned dead lovers, some explored the complex feelings behind falling out of love, [...]


    2. Valentine's Day Love Stories set in SINGAPOREThis is a compendium of short stories, featuring the myriad, sparkling and darker permutations of love. All set in Singapore. There are little snippets of life in Singapore sprinkled liberally throughout the beautifully put together stories, all different, and all interesting.This little tome would be a good read to enjoy on a flight into the island city-state, the stories are wonderfully varied and entertaining and would definitely get a traveller in [...]


    3. I am not always the biggest fan of short stories, but as this is set in Singapore, my home since four years, and features local authors, I gave it a go. And I'm glad I did, as I really enjoyed it. As with most collection of stories by different authors, some appealed to me more than others, but there are definitely some gems in there that make the whole collection worth its while. Singapore love stories addresses a number of different types of love, romantic, filial, desperate, sweet or dark, an [...]


    4. "You know all this talk about magic? It's really just love. That's the greatest magic in the world."pg 223Indeed. I was especially moved by the two stories of familial love (the one about the grandma, and the one about the father) in this collection.


    5. The book's title is a misnomer, but I thoroughly enjoyed the short stories in this anthology. Some of the stories left me hanging, but it was a good kind of feeling. I haven't felt this good after reading a book in a long time.


    6. Really solid themed short story anthology. Nicely-rounded - the collection is sprinkled with a variety of tales such that there's something for the romantic, the tragic, the humorist etc, but it still hangs together as a whole. Lots of quality writing. Refreshing to hear from the Singaporean corner of the globe as well.


    7. giveaway, thanks to Monsoon books.As snapshots into the life and seemingly eclectic culture in Singapore of which I know very little,I found these stories interesting. They cover not just a wide variety of scenario but also of age, nationality and social group. I find both the title and hearts on the cover misleading as many seem to be more about the complexities of life, not love.


    8. This is a great and really solid book of short stories. It covers an interesting variety of themes and experiences. And it gives you a real insight to life inSingapore. If you are planning to spend any length in Singapore then I highly recommend you get yourself a copy.


    9. The book is an anthology of 17 stories set in Singapore. Some stories were good others not so much. Also some of the stories required the reader to be familiar with the Singaporean humor and slang. Thank you to GoodReads and Monsoon books for a copy of the book.




    10. Reading this short stories collection, nothing seemed to jump out at me and some stories did have an unsatisfactory ending. However, when I flipped through the whole book after I was finally done, I was pleasantly surprised at how many of them stuck with me and how much I appreciated most of them. While the writing of some of them could have been better, I am still impressed by their overall quality. I haven't read any local anthology before and I guess this is a good start!


    11. I really enjoyed this book of short stories. It provided so many different perspectives of Singapore. It made me want to move back.


    12. In spite of the terrible title and cover -both of which bring to mind smarmy romances - this little book turned out to be a delight. Seventeen short stories are included, with each one depicting love in all its strange, unique, and frequently awkward and ugly forms. The stories all bear unpredictable outcomes, yet they are relatable, portraying the protagonists in vulnerable ways in which we can empathize. Highly recommended.
