John Green's was clearly the best story of the three, but I love how all three short stories come together in the end to make this an almost-novel. It's cute, fluffy, and Christmassy, and I really liked it. ( )

Na noite de natal, uma inesperada tempestade de neve transforma uma pequena cidade num inusitado refúgio romântico, do tipo que se vê apenas em filmes. Bem, mais ou menos. Porque ficar presa à noite dentro de um trem retido pela nevasca no meio do nada, apostar corrida com os amigos no frio congelante até a lanchonete mais próxima ou lidar sozinha com a tristeza da perda do namorado ideal não seriam momentos considerados românticos para quem espera encontrar o verdadeiro amor. Mas os autores bestsellers John Green, Maureen Johnson e Lauren Myracle revelam a surpreendente magia do Natal nestes três hilários e encantadores contos de amor, interligados, com direito a romances, aventuras e beijos de tirar o fôlego. Quando o trem que deveria levar Jubileu para a Flórida atola na neve, ela decide se aventurar do lado de fora. Por sorte, encontra uma lanchonete aberta: a Waffle House, onde conhece Stuart, um rapaz que ainda não se recuperou totalmente de um coração partido. Enquanto isso, Tobin e seus amigos, JP e Duke, estão curtindo a véspera de Natal escondidos em casa, assistindo a uma maratona de James Bond. Mas, apesar da nevasca, os três decidem enfrentar a noite fria e seguem para a Waffle House da cidade - ou assim eles pensam... Já a vida de Addie parece miserável desde o término do seu namoro. Agora, um dia depois do Natal, ela precisa provar que não é egoísta - e vai fazer de tudo para cumprir uma promessa, mesmo que isso signifique enfrentar o passado.

1. The Jubilee Express: Maureen Johnson – ★★★★

So the first story begins with Jubilee. And no, I don’t mean a party. I mean a girl. Named Jubilee. I don’t understand why her parents would do that to her but ok. So it starts with Jubilee’s parents going to jail for being part of a riot. A riot involving the Flobie Santa Village which is essentially a Christmas themed Miniature Wonderland but creepier ’cause it has elves in it with gifts stuck to their hands ALL THE TIME. And of course, the name ‘Jubilee’ came from one of the village pieces namely ‘Jubilee Hall’ (now that I think about it, they kinda deserved to be arrested). So naturally, Jubilee’s parents want her to go to her grandparent’s place in Florida in the middle of a snowstorm and her boyfriend does not care what she does as long as he gets to throw a Christmas party with his family. On this train ride, she meets Jeb and 14 cheerleaders who are way too enthusiastic about their train stopping halfway through Gracetown. Naturally, Jubilee exits the train and makes her way to a local Waffle House where she meets Stuart. Now Stuart, being the nice guy that he is offers JUbilee a place to stay till the storm blows over with his Jewish mom who insists on celebrating Christmas and his little sister. Throughout the course of two days, Jubilee realises that this guy that she barely knows cares more about her than her stupid and perfect, little boyfriend. SO she calls him, breaks up with him and then kisses Stuart and lives happily ever after. Well, as happy as a person can be, stuck in a storm, in Gracetown, with arrested parents over a Santa Village during Christmas.

2. A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle: John Green – ★★★

In a not-so-far-away part of Gracetown, three best friends, Tobin, J.P and the Duke (aka Angie) are binge-watching James Bond movies in the middle of a storm when they get a call from their friend Keun ( who works at the Waffle House), telling them about 14 hot cheerleaders who want to play Twister ASAP. Tobin and J.P agree immediately and drag the Duke along with them. So apparently, Angie got her name ‘Duke’ from this supermarket called the ‘Duke & Duchess’ where instead of calling you sir or ma’am, they call you Duke and Duchess (which is super dumb in my opinion). So obviously, one of the cashiers just had to go and call her Duke because of the way she dressed and the baseball cap. So basically, it stuck. I know you think this is totally unimportant but trust me it is VERY important ’cause it took me a while to figure who the Duke is. Anyway, they take Carla ( Tobin’s parents’ car) out of the garage and into the snow while they’re trying to beat the twins who ruin everything. They crash Carla (sorta) which dislodges her front wheel so they just decide to trek to the Waffle House so the Duke can have her hashbrowns and Tobin along with J.P, the cheerleaders. But after trying to miserably flirt with one of the cheerleaders named Amber (or was it, Katherine or Madeleine, I wouldn’t know), Tobin finally realises that the girl he actually loves is the DUKE. So he kisses her and the end!

3. The Patron Saint of Pigs: Lauren Myracle – ★★

In another closer part of Gracetown, young Addie has cut and dyed her hair and its not-so-wonderful. She hates it, her friends Dorrie and Teagan hate it and her boyfriend who’s Jeb by the way hates her(ish). These three friends are trying to solve Addie’s boy problems while she hides out under a blanket. So Addie’s done a very bad thing. She kissed a guy while she was drunk ’cause she and her boyfriends were having problems which is really bitchy. And then she sends him this really cringe-worthy email bout how ‘if he wants her, she’s his.’ And her friend Teagan is going to get a teacup-pig for Christmas. For those of you who don’t know, a teacup pig is a really tiny pig that only grows up to about 5 pounds. To put it simply, they’re super cute but totally unnecessary in the story. And of course, Addie works at Starbucks (I can’t–).

Throughout the whole story, people just keep telling her that she’s this self-absorbed bitch (which she really is) and get this, after she told Jeb that she cheated on him, SHE BROKE UP WITH HIM!! How does that even make sense?! And then she forgets to pick up Teagan’s pig from the store because she creates a crisis of her own which is her speciality. And then when she does get the pig after a lot of finding, she goes back to Starbucks and gets her man too.
Throughout the whole book, the plot seems to weaken as the stories progress. The first story by Maureen Johnson was honestly the best and can be read as a stand-alone (which I recommend). Because of the next two stories, the whole book seemed boring and just toxic in the end. I mean its a Christmas themed book. Why the hell is it so horrible? ‘Cause honestly, Addie was self-absorbed and totally underserving of Jeb. She got a happy ending without any character development whatsoever which was probably the worst. So whoever thought that this book is ok to read during the holidays, I say it’s really not. ( )

Let it Snow is a book comprised of three short stories about different romances that develop (or are rekindled) during the Christmas holiday. I gave the first story 4/5 stars, the second story 2/5 stars, and the third and final story 5/5 stars. However, instead of averaging these, I went for the full five stars just because I loved the ending and how it tied every story together. The third story was exactly the kind of holiday romance story I was looking for when I picked this up, predictable as it was.

I wouldn’t read this again and it’s not one of my favorite books, but I really appreciated it and I’m glad I picked it up this Christmas season! ( )

This is really more like 3 stories in one book but the three stories are definitely connected by the setting/situation and the characters often know each other. All of the stories were funny and sweet with realistic sounding teenagers. A fast read that would be ideal on a snowy/ rainy weekend. ( )

Lauren Myracle- For Dad, Sarah Lee, and the lovely mountain town of Brevard, NC... all chock-full of grace.
John Green - To Ilene Cooper, who has guided me through so many blizzards
Maureen Johnson - For Hamish, who embodied the "go down the hill really fast and if something gets in your way, turn" school of teaching me how to deal with a snowy slope. And for all who toil behind the facade of a corporate monolith, fo revery person who has to say grande latte three thousand times a day, for every soul who's ever had to deal with a broken credit card reader in the holiday rush... this one is for you.
