Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances is exactly what I needed this week. It's rough, sometimes, reading all sorts of great but disturbing young adult lit and teaching students who often have disturbing things happening in their lives. Sometimes, I need a break. This book was it. There are very few books that have caused me to laugh out loud. That said, ALL of John Green's books have made me at least chuckle, if not completely bust out and get a little red in the face. Green's novella, "A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle" definitely had me grinning, chuckling, reading parts aloud to my husband, had a couple near-tearworthy moments. He is just so very cool. Love him. I'd read anything that he wrote. He's impossibly talented and witty and just plain good with things like character and plot and dialogue. The other two stories are good, too. The first, by Maureen Johnson, really started the story in a great, catastrophic way. It's about a Christmas Eve night in a Southern town. Unfortunately for all of the busy travelers and all of the characters in this book, a freakishly huge snowstorm causes major upheaval. Thus begins a wild night of chance meetings, break-ups, confessions, parents getting arrested while Christmas shopping, cheerleaders practicing splits in waffle houses, the antics of a man covered in tinfoil, and lots and lots of other anomalies. All of three of the stories are interconnected, but each sounds like the author who wrote it. I definitely loved John Green's the most, but the others were good, too. It was lighthearted and silly and warm and full of hope. Kinda how Christmas Eve should be.

Three interconnected stories from three bestselling authors: John Green ( Paper Towns, The Fault in our Stars), Maureen Johnson ( The Name of the Star), and Lauren Myracle (The Internet Girls series.)

Major motion picture in the works!

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.

A New York Times Bestseller!

I was trying to get into the Christmas spirit, which is hard in the desert, so I decided to read this book. Ugh. I thought it was pretty horrible. The three stories intertwine in really forced (and dumb, imho) ways, and none of the stories themselves actually wowed me. I'd say the best was probably the one by Maureen Johnson; the worst being John Green's. Overall I'd say this was a failure.

This is exactly the kind of book I need this holiday season =)))Well, I'm really into romance and comedy, so I loved this book. All three separate but interconnected love stories... everything was sweet and everything fit perfectly. Really. Plus in the end, all the people involved got to be in the same room together, all having a good time.I really really really liked this book.I loved the first love story best. Stuart and Jubilee are adorable together.Five stars :)

Three famous and accom...

Three famous and accomplished YA writers write three slightly interconnecting Christmas romance novellas that make for a feel-good read in the month of December, curled up next to the fireplace with a mug of hot chocolate beside you, marshmallows melting on the top. Maureen Johnson's story, "The Jubilee Express," was my favorite of the three. In the story, the unfortunately named Jubilee's plans to spend Christmas with her overachieving boyfriend get tossed aside for a blizzard-stranded train and a sweet guy she meets in the town she's stranded in. Jubilee's voice is that perfect level of wryness that makes for scads of laughter while also moving the plot right along. It's incredible how much character development occurs within a hundred or so pages, but Noah's jerky personality and Stuart's genuine nice-guy charm gradually reveal themselves to provide a thoroughly satisfying conclusion. Too often YA romances are predictable: you know who the MC is going to end up with practically the first time the love interest appears in the story. Me, I like romances that surprise me, which the one in John Green's "A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle" managed to do, much to my delight. I was a little underwhelmed by the gag-humor antics-the sliding car, the bully chase, etc.-and instead focused my attention on how wonderfully subtly Tobin's own little Christmas miracle develops. It's treat enough to make tolerable the wade through the occasionally ridiculous scenarios that Tobin and his friends have to wade through in order to deliver Twister to the cheerleaders in the middle of a snowstorm. I was least in like with the final story, "The Patron Saint of Pigs" by Lauren Myracle. As mentioned before, the stories in LET IT SNOW are slightly interconnected, and so the glimpses I got of the two main characters prior to reading this story just didn't gel with the way they were presented in "Pigs." Addie is definitely self-involved (and could her friends tell her that more often?), and so at times I found myself questioning why a guy as apparently wonderful as Jeb could've fallen for her, as well as wanting to smack her. However, she also undergoes growth in the story-albeit in a "sudden revelation from the heavens" kind of manner-so all's well that ends well, I suppose. Overall, LET IT SNOW is a wonderful addition to the avid YA reader's already bursting book collection. You really can't go wrong with any of these authors, especially when they write a light-hearted holiday read.

Let It Snow: Three Hol...

Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances from John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle features three interconnecting stories that all take place on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. This trait resembles the interconnected nature of Kevin Smith's first three films (Clerks, Mallrats, and Chasing Amy) in which a certain characters or pieces of backstory crossover between the tales. Maureen Johnson's story, "Jubilee Express," feels like an episode of Daria at the beginning, but ends on a more traditional teenage romance note. John Green's contribution to this volume, "A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle," follows his tradition of writing YA stories with male protagonists and has the tone of a teen comedy aimed at male audiences coupled with his flair for writing road trip stories. Finally, Lauren Myracle's "The Patron Saint of Pigs" resembles a variation on the Christmas tradition of adapting Dickens' A Christmas Carol into a television special wherein the main character must learn a lesson and work to help others. The conclusion to Myracle's story also ties all three together with the main characters from each gathering at a Starbucks. The presence of branding throughout these stories may reflect the increasing commercialization of the holidays and the characters' acceptance of the omnipresent corporations a tacit understanding that this is now the way the holiday season works. From early on, brands like Waffle House, Mousetrap, Twister, James Bond, Macbook, Firefox, and Starbucks feature prominently. While this allows the authors to set their story in a world familiar to their readers, it also shows how these brands, and corporations as a whole, now control the holiday season.

Let It Snow has been o...

Let It Snow has been on my TBR for YEARS. I decided to pick it up as part of the 12 Days of Read-A-Thon. Reading it in December was definitely a good idea as it is all about three romances that take place during Christmas all within the same town. THE JUBILEE EXPRESS - MAUREEN JOHNSON (3/5) The Jubilee Express was cute and a good way to kick off the novel. Jubilee's parents are crazy collectors of Flobie Christmas Villages and when they go to buy a new piece at the showroom on Christmas eve, a mob breaks out and when they fail to disperse, are thrown in jail. The mention of people being obsessed with collecting Christmas villages is hilarious to me as I work in a Christmas store and it is 100% accurate. Jubilee and Stuart were pretty neutral characters, they weren't entirely boring but they weren't amazing. However, Jubilee really seemed to hate cheerleaders ... but so did everyone in this book and it was a bizarre trend. The entire concept of Jubilee going home with Stuart was ... so incredibly unrealistic, which is not something I try to say about books but it was just strange. This would probably never happen. Overall, not bad but just weird. A CHEERTASTIC CHRISTMAS MIRACLE - JOHN GREEN (3/5) This entire story is centered around three friends who have to get to a Waffle House in the middle of a blizzard because there's a group of cheerleaders stranded at the Waffle House. I really enjoyed this! Our cast of characters was very charismatic and their interactions felt genuine. The overall premise of "We must go see the hot cheerleaders or we'll die!" was ... weird but I was able to put that aside because of how much I enjoyed the group interactions. Our main characters were underdeveloped but generally enjoyable, save for the fact that the only girl was hellbent on how she's ~*~* not like other girls ~*~* the entirety of the story and it was irritating. We get it. You hate women. The actual romance aspect of this novel was weird. We go from best friends to "Hey I love you" only after someone else mentions that they might like each-other teasingly. What? That's ... not how life works. The actual ending, where the two got together, would have been so cute, had it not felt like instalove. I feel like this story really could have benefitted from being it's own full length novel or maybe even just a longer short story. Flesh it all out and we could have something great here. THE PATRON SAINT OF PIGS - LAUREN MYRACLE (2/5) If you're reading this book, feel free to just stop when John Green's story ends. You don't need to read this. It is bad. Our main character is incredibly whiny and self-absorbed and just not good. She was incredibly obnoxious and irritating. Her "transformation" at the end was rushed and made no sense whatsoever to me. I don't understand the author's intent. Was I supposed to feel bad for her? I don't. She didn't learn from any mistakes. She didn't grow as a character. We turned a page and she was a brand new person, without any work to get there. Also ... can you guess? She hated cheerleaders too. This book is really anti-cheerleader. Had it not been for the side characters, the atmosphere, and the fact that I really just wanted to see how much she could screw everything up, I would have DNFed the book. Each individual story was connected at the end of this one but it was pointless and felt forced. Rather than giving you a sense of connection, it put a strange damper on the stories I had previously enjoyed. Overall, it was an enjoyable read. It was very atmospheric and fun to read around the holiday, I just could have done without the last story and the bizarre cheerleader hate.
