Book Review + Book Giveaway: Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle

Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances is exactly what I needed this week. It's rough, sometimes, reading all sorts of great but disturbing young adult lit and teaching students who often have disturbing things happening in their lives. Sometimes, I need a break. This book was it.

There are very few books that have caused me to laugh out loud. That said, ALL of John Green's books have made me at least chuckle, if not completely bust out and get a little red in the face. Green's novella, "A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle" definitely had me grinning, chuckling, reading parts aloud to my husband, had a couple near-tearworthy moments. He is just so very cool. Love him. I'd read anything that he wrote. He's impossibly talented and witty and just plain good with things like character and plot and dialogue.

The other two stories are good, too. The first, by Maureen Johnson, really started the story in a great, catastrophic way. It's about a Christmas Eve night in a Southern town. Unfortunately for all of the busy travelers and all of the characters in this book, a freakishly huge snowstorm causes major upheaval. Thus begins a wild night of chance meetings, break-ups, confessions, parents getting arrested while Christmas shopping, cheerleaders practicing splits in waffle houses, the antics of a man covered in tinfoil, and lots and lots of other anomalies.

All of three of the stories are interconnected, but each sounds like the author who wrote it. I definitely loved John Green's the most, but the others were good, too. It was lighthearted and silly and warm and full of hope. Kinda how Christmas Eve should be.

I am giving away my (used) copy of this book to one lucky commenter from the US. This giveaway will close on December 14th. If you're interested in winning this book, please leave a comment stating what you love best about winter. Because I love winter and can't wait for lots of snow to come!
