Let it Snow Review

Let it Snow - Lauren Myracle, John Green, Maureen Johnson

Let it Snow, an anthology of three related stories written by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle, was a surprisingly refreshing read. I really found myself enjoying the romance of these stories. I haven't read much contemporary teen fiction and most of the novels that I read are not romance-based, so it was a really fun change. I thought that the romances were fun, cute, and funny. They never came off as overdone or overdramatic, which is a plus.

 

I liked all three of the stories, and thought that "The Jubilee Express" and "Patron Saint of Pigs" were excellent introductions to Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle, neither of which I had read before. I really enjoyed John Green's story, "A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle," which felt very different from his other works, but still maintained a classic John Green brand of humour. 

 

I would strongly recommend this collection to anyone looking for some light, funny, holiday reading. I can see myself reading this collection again next year. 

 

Cheers!
