Review: Let it Snow

Goodreads Description: 

Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow.
 A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. 

After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks.

 Thanks to three of today's bestselling teen authors--John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle--the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses

Okay, I read this, like, two month after Christmas. And I still loved it! The stories intertwine cleverly and the authors different writing styles compliment each others perfectly.

The stories and characters are both funny and heartwarming. Personally, my favorite story was the last part by Lauren Myracle, The Patron Saint of Pigs. Just hearing the name makes you smile, and I was smiling through out this whole story!

The first story is about Jubilee. Her whole Christmas is kind of a fiasco. Stuck in a weird town, with a train full of cheerleaders, and her parents are in jail, plus a boyfriend crisis. This story was probably my least favorite, just because the romance seems uber quick.

The next story, by John Green, claims second place. It seemed to drag in some place, but still funny and sweet... And a lot of immature boys who ruin their car to go see cheerleaders. My favorite characters in this were either The Duke or Tobin.
The Duke is this girl who has hung out with the boys for forever, but has yet to feel that anyone has noticed she is actually a girl. And Tobin, who is noticing Duke as a girl for the first time, and has to remind himself they are just friends. Duke is cool and confident, traits I like. And all the characters have hilarious comments!

The third story, my favorite, is about a girl missing her old boyfriend. And, to try to deserve him, tries to be less self centered. Also, her friend just got a little pig. Sooo cute! This story is extremely enjoyable and a breezed through it, or should I say blizzarded? (PS that's not a word, I know) Also, you visit old characters from the two previous stories and learn more yummy back story!

A lot of characters, places, gossip and more are intertwined between all three stories, leaving the readers charmed. This is a fun, daring winter read,
Overall, I highly recommend it. The characters, plots, and dialogue are all immensely enjoyable.

4/5 bookcases

I have read other books by John Green and Maureen Johnson, but never one by Lauren Myracle. Considering  Myracle was the one who wrote my favorite story, I need to read another book of hers in the future!
