Hey guys! I hope everyone who celebrates had a great Christmas! I actually finished my last book on Christmas Eve but I’ve been too busy to post about it.
The book was Let It Snow, a collection of three short stories written by young adult authors Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle.
The three stories were all centered around Christmas, making it the perfect book to read on Christmas Eve. Since they are young adult stories, they were pretty easy to read through quickly.
What I really liked about this book was that all three stories were connected, instead of just being a bunch of random stories with the same theme.
The first story is about a teenage girl named Jubilee who ends up stuck on a train by herself on Christmas Eve in the middle of a huge snowstorm. Her train ends up derailed and she ventures off into the town she’s in and ends up in a Waffle House, where she meets a boy that she clicks with.
The next story is about three high school friends who are spending Christmas Eve watching a movie marathon during the snowstorm. But then, their friend who works at Waffle House calls them and says they have to get there right away. We follow them on their adventure through the snowstorm to get to the restaurant.
The final story is about another teenage girl who lives in the same town and recently ended her relationship although she wants to get back together. Her boyfriend was on the train that crashed in the first story, and his cell phone broke in the crash so he can’t contact her – although she doesn’t know that. We follow her as she deals with her relationship and friendships.
At the end of the third story, all three come together in a happy ending, which I thought was really nice. Last year I read a compilation of twelve Christmas-themed stories called My True Love Gave To Me. I liked that book, but none of the stories were related, and I liked Let It Snow better for this reason.
This book was cute and an easy read, and I’d definitely recommend it to read around the holidays.
