I heard about this book from ElfArmyWrites so I decided to give it a try.

David Levithan is apparently very popular with the younger generation. He is responsible for the book, and subsequent movie, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. This particular novel, How They Met..., is a compilation of short stories; love stories. What makes this even more interesting is that each story covers a different kind of love: unrequited, rewarded, lesbian, straight and gay.

I enjoyed reading about love outside of what I am used to reading about: man and woman fall in love. The first story was particularly "corny" (in a good way), where a bit of enchantment is involved in the wooing of one man to another. It's sweet and it made me have butterflies in my stomach.
