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 best-selling 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.
I finished this book over a week ago, but actually forgot to do a review since I have been so busy. I had also intended on watching the Netflix movie that recently came out based on the book, but alas I haven’t had time. Perhaps that movie review will come later.
Let it Snow is a book that is a combination of three separate stories that take place over the course of a weekend in several towns that are affected by a freak snowstorm. In each story, we find a few overlapping characters that tie the story together and we also get to briefly meet characters from the other stories. I won’t spoil any of the stories for you since I think the book is definitely worth reading. I loved John Green as an author, so I can’t recommend him enough. There are several of his books I have read in the past so in case you need recommendations just search here. I haven’t read any Maureen Johnson books, but I definitely liked her writing style from what I read here. I did read Lauren Myracle’s words in the Catwoman comic book and I can’t say that I love what I have read from her so far, but the jury is still out.
If you are looking for a lighthearted tween holiday read this is definitely a book that I would recommend for you. This book will definitely get you in the holiday spirit. I hope to see you soon for another holiday post.!
