As a part of my (failed) Blogmas I decided to read three Christmas books. I have only read two (this Blogmas really has gone wrong) but I have finished the gorgeous Let It Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle and Maureen Johnson. I ADORED it.
Let It Snow is a Christmas novel focussed around three different Christmas love stories.
Maureen Johnson writes the first section. Jubilee, after a few complications to her Christmas, is on a train on Christmas Eve. Only, because of a horrendous storm, the train is stranded and Jubilee finds herself with a bunch of strangers, no way to get the Christmas she was travelling to, and hours until December 25th. A Noah and a Stuart are involved, as well as a heart-warming ending to it all.
The second story, written by John Green, follows a group of best friends on a journey to reach a Waffle house crowded with cheerleaders that were on the same train as Jubilee. In a midst of all of this, feelings are emphasised and my heart begins to glow with snow and excitement.
Laureen Myracle writes the third story. Jeb and Addie are no longer together. Reminiscing about the Christmas before, Addie's regret is an obvious feeling throughout the story. Only, she learns through friends that maybe this Christmas is one for changing; one for becoming less self-absorbed.
The stories interlink in a gorgeously lovely way that left me feeling very tingly and teary as I closed the novel. It has set me up very well for Christmas.
The novel, as a whole, teaches Christmas magic and hope and a lot of feeling.
