Rating: 4/5

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 only see 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 with 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 wit ha painfully early morning shift at Starbucks.

Ok, this book is precious. I don’t think I’ve ever read a Christmas book before. I know I’ve read books that I associate with winter, but never one that really focused on Christmas. I picked this one up because I love John Green. I’m so glad because it was the perfect little book to get me in the Christmas spirit.

I was impressed by Maureen Johnson’s story. It was probably my favorite of the three. I thought she had a great sense of humor and I liked her characters. Jubilee was just awesome. I may have to check out some of her books now. John Green didn’t disappoint. His characters were hilarious, of course. I love the way he deals with romance. It’s so much more realistic than many authors. He just knows what he’s doing when it comes to writing teen characters. His story was definitely the funniest of the three. Lauren Myracle wrote a cute story, but I didn’t get into it the way I did the other two. I thought she had a good message, but it was a tad too cheesy for me at the end. I also just couldn’t get into Addie. I don’t really feel compelled to read anything else by Myracle.

If you want some cute and funny stories to get you into the Christmas spirit, you should pick this book up. It’s a fun read.
