Book Review No. 79 ~ Let It Snow

Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, & Lauren Myracle

Summary:  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.  (taken from the Overview found on Barnes & Noble dot com)

My Critique:  My very first e-book!  I checked this book out via my library's e-book lending platform, OverDrive.  Side note:  It's awesome, you should check it out here.  You should all know of my love for John Green by this point.  I'm slowly reading my way through all his books.  I saw this one and when I noticed two other renowned young adult authors too...well, I knew I had to read it.  And I'm glad I did.  This book is broken down into three short stories...each story written by one of the authors but all intertwining together in the end.  Very pleasant and quick read.  A little holiday enjoyment.

Short Stories:  The Jubilee Express (Maureen Johnson); A Cheertastic Christmas (John Green); The Patron Saint of Pigs (Lauren Myracle)

Favorite Passages:  
"There is nothing about a bad situation that fourteen hyper cheerleaders can't worsen."  (The Jubilee Express)  hahahahahahahahahahaha

"...I had never before had a first kiss with a girl I loved."  (A Cheertastic Christmas) awwwww

DISCLAIMER: The views and opinions expressed in the afore mentioned book, Let It Snow, are the sole views and opinions of the authors and have nothing to do with me or my own views/opinions/beliefs...so get off my back. I am in no way affiliated with with afore mentioned author...except that one time in Vegas------------oh wait, ummm, nevermind.......
