It was just cheery, fun Christmas fluff. John Green's kind of drove me nuts. I wanted to like it more, but I guess I am not that adventurous, because I kept thinking It started off strong and got progressively weaker. I wanted to like it more, but I guess I am not that adventurous, because I kept thinking that the characters were such massive idiots, but their idiotic actions were the only thing that created a plot. He kept referring to them as oh-so-clever, but they really weren't. They attempted to reach Buffy-level snark and sarcasm and really didn't make it. Also, the cheerleader thing got really old, really fast.
I usually love him, so I was disappointed. Lauren Myracle's was so terrible and I hated every minute. Her main character was a self-absorbed whiny brat and I was stuck in her first person pea brained narrative for the entire thing. The entire thing was, admittedly, about the fact that she was a self-absorbed whiny brat and everyone was calling her on that fact, but her supposed transformation was utterly ridiculous.
Also, the last chapter tied up all three of the stories and she massacred all of the characters from the other stories. Any wit and subtlety that the other two authors created, she destroyed. This probably would have gotten four stars if she hadn't written the final chapter and left me with the bad taste.

While I enjoyed it and found the stories generally exciting enough to keep reading, I didn't fall in love with any characters, any settings, any stories. View all 3 comments. Shelves: christmas , anthology , young-adult , contemporary-romance. Let it Snow is an anthology of three short stories, all tied together by a thread, written by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle.
This book was a gift from a dear friend. Her perfect boyfriend, her busy boyfriend. There are certain concessions one must make to date the perfect guy, right? She should just be happy to be his girlfriend. Her parents who were avid collectors of pieces to their Flobie Santa Village collection, which is a Christmas Village display, have been arrested in their attempt to obtain the latest addition to their collection. So Jubilee is put on a train and sent to Florida to spend the holiday with her Grandparents.
They became stuck in a snow drift in the middle of a blizzard in Gracetown. To escape all the chaos, Jubilee gets off the train and treks across the road to a Waffle House. She is rescued by a boy her own age that lives nearby named Stuart.

Her time with Stuart teaches her so much about herself. And one kiss makes what once was the worst into the best Christmas ever. They are enjoying themselves until they get a call from a friend that works at Waffle House saying that they absolutely have to get there because there is a group of fifteen cheerleaders stuck there for the night. So Tobin and his friends begin a crazy night trying to get to the Waffle House in the blizzard. But along the way, in the midst of all the chaos, he begins to see Angie as something other than one of his buddies.
This could just turn out to be one of the best Christmas days he has ever had. She has been dating her boyfriend, Jeb for exactly one year on Christmas Eve. But they have been having problems. Their relationship has been struggling.
And then Addie did something dumber than dumb. Something she regrets with every fiber of her being. So she begs Jeb to meet her at Starbucks to mend things.
I loved the ending of this one as the couples from the first two stories are all brought together in a very heartwarming way. These were three very heart-warming short stories that are sure to make you smile and will warm your heart during this very special holiday season.

Here's five reasons why Let it Snow is sentenced to a one star rating. But first, it must be acknowledged that I did not suffer this re-read alone but was assisted by the traitor, Offence 1: Self deprecating main character I'm not saying everybody has to be confident and perfect all the time. No, I'm saying a well written character should have a personality that extends further than feeling sorry for your name all the time.

The first story starts with about three paragraphs of rambling about how Jubilee who's the whiny narrator for the story is such a strippery name although she certainly has nothing against strippers. My name is Jubilee Dougal. Take a moment and let it sink in. You probably think I have heard the call of the pole. But no. No one knows what kind. Have you ever heard of someone throwing a jubilee?
And if you did, would you go? Because I wouldn't. Come to think of it, it might be interchangeable with hoedown. At this point, you might be thinking this isn't annoying, it's funny. Don't worry, that's what I thought too. But oh boy, when she brings this up every chapter, it gets on your nerves. Offence 2: PWP Plot?
