Blogmas Book Quotes

Hello! It has been snowing so much the past few days.  Where I live, it has been transformed into a winter wonderland.  So, when I came across this little passage from Anne of Green Gables, it reminded me of how magical snow truly can be!

Christmas morning broke on a beautiful white world. It had been a very mild December and people had looked forward to a green Christmas; but just enough snow fell softly in the night to transfigure Avonlea. Anne peeped out from her frosted gable window with delighted eyes. The firs in the Haunted Wood were all feathery and wonderful; the birches and wild cherry trees were outlined in pearl; the plowed fields were stretches of snowy dimples; and there was a crisp tang in the air that was glorious. Anne ran downstairs singing until her voice reechoed through Green Gables.

“Merry Christmas, Marilla! Merry Christmas, Matthew! Isn’t it a lovely Christmas? I’m so glad it’s white. Any other kind of Christmas doesn’t seem real, does it?”

~ L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Christmas Countdown – #2


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!
