Christmas Countdown – #2

holidays-1

Hey all!  Christmas is officially in full swing!  I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving (for those of you in America); mine was very nice. 🙂

Countdown to Christmas is a weekly feature where I recommend a different Christmas-y book each week to read this holiday season – inspired by Kourtni Reads‘ own Christmas countdown!

This week’s pick is Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle.

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 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.

Let It Snow is such a great book; it really puts you in the Christmas spirit!  I love how even though each of the three stories are their own, they all connect in such fun ways.  This book is also filled with really well-rounded characters, which can be hard to do for a short story, but all three authors manage to do an excellent job.  If you can only read one Christmas book this year, I would highly recommend this one.  It’s been a couple years since I last read Let It Snow, and I’m thinking I definitely need to do a re-read this Christmas!

Have any of you read this book?  Let me know what you thought!

    This is another one I have on my TBR 🙂 I’m actually planning on highlighting it in my Christmas countdown in the next few weeks, too. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it and even though I’ve had mixed opinions on John Green’s books, I definitely want to give this one a try.

    I read this book last year on Christmas day and really enjoyed it, I plan on reading it again this year. Going into it I had no clue the characters would connect so when I finished the first story I wasn’t happy. I couldn’t believe that we weren’t going to get some sort of closure, I was so excited when they all started coming together. That’s what I get for not even reading the back cover before reading it haha
