    It started off strong and got progressively weaker Maureen Johnson was fun John Green all right and Lauren Myracle dismalMaureen Johnson's story was super uirky and giggly and slightly ridiculous in a good way I liked Jubilee a lot crazy as she was and was amused to see a lot of my mother in Stuart's It was just cheery fun Christmas fluffJohn Green's kind of drove me nuts I wanted to like it 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

    I've been meaning to read this for FOREVER and I'm glad I finally did It's the depths of winter here in Canada so the snowy theme came at the perfect time 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 Here's my review of it

    35 STARS Cute snowy disasters and teenage romance “I always had this idea that you should never give up a happy middle in the hopes of a happy ending because there is no such thing as a happy ending” Sometimes snow can be a real pain A naughty kid causing uite the chaos wherever she deems to grace Ask the occupants of Gracetown—they can tell you all about it; because this year it's snowing like it hadn't in half a century Buried beneath multiple feet of snow their cars stuck trains stranded roads blocked the residents of this little town are in for a hell of a timeBecause snow is also magical Enchanting A little bit of snow can make all the difference Burying the real life and all the inconseuential things under a blanket of white snow can change the way you see the world It can make you take a path you never imagined It can get you stuck and sometimes that's all you need to do—get stuck Pause and truly see Because sometimes that's just where you need to beYou just gotta let it snowWhich is just what this book does Three interconnected hilarious and charming stories about a snowstruck town starting from one girl and continuing as a chain of reactions Johnson Green and Myracle tell a tale of love friendship and the magic of holidays—which can change uite a few livesThe Jubilee Expressby Maureen Johnson ★★★½☆ I felt so alone on that traina weird unnatural kind of alone that bore into me It was feeling just beyond fear and somewhere to the left of sadnessTired but not the kind of tired that sleep fixesIt was dark and gloomy and yet it didn’t seem that things would get any better if the lights were turned up Storyline One brave soul ventures out into the storm from her stranded train taking a risky shortcut with an adorable stranger starting a maybe predictable story but no less special in its own way and a great short read to lighten your mood on a tough day Storytelling Precious and sweet right when it needed to be hilarious the rest of the time Maureen Johnson's writing is the reason it got 35 instead of 3 I am content I knew it was beautiful but knowing something is beautiful and caring about it are two very different things and I didn’t care Characterisation Perhaps the strongest part of this story were the characters being well developed for a small town tale; Debbie the overly sweet absurd mischievous and inappropriate mother Rachel the cutest five year old that I oh wanna eat and Jubilee the crazy protagonist and comedian of the story with thoughts that gave me so many laughaches One person’s crazy is another person’s sane I guess Relationships With absolutely cute and well handled romance and the sweetest familial bonds The Jubilee Express did it just right for the holidaysA Cheertastic Christmas Miracleby John Green ★★★★½ Something about me has always liked the drama and inconvenience of bad weather The worse the better really Storyline Three friends set out to win a race to the Waffle House And the hash brown spoils And the cheerleaders ofc You can guess how it turn outI mean c'mon It's John Green That man can write about the taxonomy of Brachychiton rupestris and I'd still read and love it And no that is not the name of As always this was a whirlwind of madness sprinkled with the warm company of crazy friends in a storm and a hilarious disastrous ride to the Waffle House Poor Carla the car “YESSSSSS WE JUST DID SUCH AN AWESOME JOB OF NOT DYING” Storytelling John is John and he does magic with simple words He writes the most crazy events in such a chill and hilarious manner that is uniue in its simplicity Also the gem of his writing is his conversations and while Maureen Johnson spent a lot of time in hilarious and easy explanation of events John Green is a man of action who writes events and dialogue that are hilarious themselves I responded to this development with the kind of sophisticated language for which I am famous “Crap crap crap crap crap crap crap stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid crap” Characterization The three friends Tobin the protagonist the Duke and JP were easily the best of the whole book Even the sidekicks were masterfully managed and developed The Duke aka Angie specially with her hilarious smart crazy self peppered with the right amount of wisdom make a mark on my heart Here is one of my main complaints about human consciousness once you think a thought it is extremely difficult to unthink it Relationships This tells all 😂 Oh I deep fried for youBut now I weep ‘n’ cry for youOh babe this meal was made for twoAnd these hash browns mean nothing oh these hash browns mean nothing yeah these HASH BROWNS MEAN NOTHIN’ without you The Patron Saint of Pigsby Lauren Myracle ★★½☆☆ “Silly girl it’s not what the universe gives us that matters It’s what we give the universe” Storyline The fate of a teacup pig falls into the hands of a lovesick barista sparking a tale that wasn’t anything special to be honest It was cute unnecessarily dramatic a little romantic a lot self explorationand fine really It attempted to be magical but failed unfortunatelyThe reason I read it was mostly because I wanted to see what happened to the characters of the two previous stories where the loose threads were gonna lead and who was gonna meet whom And for that I enjoyed it So 255 is the best I can do If you're free and relaxed and wanting a fun read this book is great; and this last story wouldn't ruin the fun of the previous ones if you look at it graciously and not too critically “Christmas is a state of mind” Storytelling Lauren Myracle does not have a uniue writing or hilarious storytelling or addicting turn of events or anything noteworthy for that matter But as my goal is to always get the best of each book and make you enjoy it best too I'm gonna admit that Myracle had her moments and I did awwwwww on occasion and burst out laughing The gem of this story was how beautifully and amazingly she used the two other authors'stories and wove them in her own Shouldn’t I have some say over the endless thoughts running through my head? Characterization The sidekicks and friends were not that developed even though this story was the longest of the three in the book—the author attempted to give them each backstories meaning and dimension but didn't much succeedThe protagonist however had a great character development and the story was mostly about her changing herself—in the beginning I was a little annoyed cause we were seeing everything from the eyes of a whiney self absorbed drama ueen but it was intentional and her friends were not blind to it and pointed it out Relationships In the spirit of positivity I'd say—while there wasn't much to the romance—it was fun reading it run in background to character development for onceIn the end I don't regret picking it up if only for Johnson's Debbie and Jubilee the puzzle pieces and coincidences and chain of reactions and JOHN FREAKING GREEN—that man is a magician Companions Motion picture adaptation Released on November 8 2019 it was fun for a free afternoon silly and full of heart The plot line differed a little from the book and the changes both hurt and helped; for example making Stuart a famous singer was a nice addition to the first story and turning the Tinfoil Man into Tinfoil Woman and giving her of a role was a great choice while removing my little Rachel was not The second story also was not as good as the book Audience rating 46%Critics rating 81%My rating 65% Also by John Green • Turtles All the Way Down ★★★★★• The Fault in Our Stars ★★★★★• Looking for Alaska ★★★★★• Paper Towns ★★★★½• An Abundance of Katherine's ★★★★☆• Will Grayson Will Grayson with David Levithan ★★★¾☆• An Imperial Affliction as Peter Van Houten ★★★★★• The Price of Dawn ★★★★☆ Book playlist Spotify LINK

    Here's five reasons why Let it Snow is sentenced to a one star ratingBut 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 strippersMy name is Jubilee Dougal Take a moment and let it sink in I realize Jubilee is a bit of a stripper name You probably think I have heard the call of the pole But no My objection is that Jubilee isn't a name it's some kind of a party 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 hoedownAt 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? What Plot? I suppose it's meant to be cute how these stories are about teenage romances on Christmas Eve I can assure you it's not I don't know what I was thinking when I bought John Green posters but I believe it's safe for me to say I fucking hate his writing I assume his thought process behind writing a cheertastic christmas miracle was something like this Oh Paper Towns is making millions Wonder what would happen if I tweaked the characters a little bit and wrote the same story again? Gentlemen may you travel safely and swiftly But if you die tonight die in the comfort that you have sacrificed your lives for that noblest of human causes The pursuit of cheerleadersThe story summed up in three basic pointsa 3 typical hormone driven male charactersb 14 hot cheerleaders waiting for them because what else would they want to do apart from make out with idiots with twister in the middle of the biggest storm in 50 years?c The Duke who's not like other girlsWhat would anybody ever want in a story?The Duke was just normal she liked to joke around and talk about movies She was much like a person than other girls were Offence #3 Clichés overdone to death Remember how I mentioned that girl who's not like the other girls? That's just the beginningIn this bundle of short stories we have 1 Sweet guy who's heart has been broken by oh you guessed it a cheerleader Stuart2 The popular guy everyone wants to date who's just so perfect 33 and also really boring Noah3 Average male guy who talks about nothing but sex and girls in bikinis JP4 The effervescent parents who call every ten minutes Tobin's parents5 The girl who's so uniue because she has pigs TeganThere's also wonderfully written dialogue Having no gathered my thoughts I was finally able to elouently articulate my feelings about the matter Crap crap crapGIVE ME A BREAK Offence #4 Let's have an adventure at 3 am because that's what teenagers do I know I know I've mentioned this before But dammit that story pissed me off so much Best friends secretly in love with each other? Check Stupid ideas because HOT GIRLS? Check Dirty talking to a car? check Offence #5 Stereotyping Characters introduced only so they can be made fun of I'm just going to complete this section with a bunch of uotes from the book because there's really not much I can sayCould that be why he ate lunch with Nathan Krugle who was definitely an outsider with his all Star Trek all the time T shirt collection?Because obviously somebody who loves Star Trek is weird How silly of me to think otherwiseBy making me his girlfriend he demonstrated his belief in me and I had picked up on his conviction I stood straighter He liked being seen with me; therefore I liked being seen with meI'm sorry but this book was a cringefest

    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 friendThe Jubilee Express by Maureen JohnsonIt’s Christmas Eve and Jubilee Dougal can’t wait to attend the Christmas Party at her boyfriend Noah’s house 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 But the day didn’t turn out exactly as she had planned 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 Only the train didn’t make it They became stuck in a snow drift in the middle of a blizzard in Gracetown If that isn’t bad enough there are fifteen cheerleaders on the train To escape all the chaos Jubilee gets off the train and treks across the road to a Waffle House That’s so much better until the cheerleaders follow her there 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 everA Cheertastic Christmas Miracle by John GreenTobin and his best friend Angie who he calls The Duke and one other friend are holed up at Tobin’s house watching James Bond movies His parents’ flight has been delayed due to the storm and won’t make it back until after Christmas 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 That maybe there was something there all along he just wasn’t looking This could just turn out to be one of the best Christmas days he has ever hadThe Patron Saint of Pigs by Lauren MyracleAddie is devastated 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 But he doesn’t show up It’s over He doesn’t want to forgive her On the day after Christmas when Addie goes to work at Starbucks with one thing she must accomplish that day pick up her best friend’s new pet a tea cup pig she begins a small journey of self discovery I loved the ending of this one as the couples from the first two stories are all brought together in a very heartwarming wayThese 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

    This is the perfect book to curl up with when it’s cold and snowing outside It is one of those reads that just makes you want to snuggle up on your couch a hot cocoa or tea in hand and enjoy the winterly atmosphere In fact the only thing missing for my perfect reading experience was the fireplace ;I don’t want to give too much away about the stories themselves because I think it is best to go into this book unprepared and let yourself be surprised I liked all three stories but The Jubilee Express and A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle were slightly better than the last one The Patron Saint of Pigs I didn’t like the main character too much there Although the cute teacup pig almost made up for it All in all this short story collection is perfect for you if you are looking for a light and fun Christmas read The stories are sometimes hilarious sometimes sweet slightly crazy full of lovable characters and pigs provide you with a nice Christmaswinter feeling make you laugh out loud and are just great to get lost in I'm positive I'll pick this book up again some coming winterA few uotes for you to enjoy Before I take you into the beating heart of the story let’s get one thing out of the way I know from experience that when it comes up later it will distract you so much that you won’t be able to concentrate on anything else I will tell you My name is Jubilee Dougal Take a moment and let it sink in First page first fit of laughter The perfect start I envisioned huge piles of the Elf Hotel flying off the belt taking down everybody in sight I had seen pictures of that Elf Hotel it had sharp candy cane spires that could easily impale someone If anyone was ever going to be killed by an Elf Hotel it would be my parents The whole story surrounding the Flobie Village was beyond hilarious There is nothing about a bad situation that fourteen hyper cheerleaders can't worsen I have never even met one cheerleader Yet I can very much imagine this to be true “Your mom calls than a clingy boyfriend”I responded to this development with the kind of sophisticated language for which I am famous “Crap crap crap crap crap crap crap stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid crap”And not to forget the teacup pigsigh I would really like to have one

    Sigh Half of me wants to scream WORST BOOK EVER UGH BLEHH MNEHH AAARGHHH MY BRAIN IS BLEEDING The other half is thinking John Green you absolute motherfucking genius You managed to salvage this utter arse crap Well Fucking DoneAs much as I hate chick lit and this is beyond chick lit it's like 300 pages of mushy smoochy splodge of chick lit paradise I read this becauseoh fuck it it's Xmas I could barely get through the first of the 3 stories It killed my brain cells I swear it did The John Green one was delightful however Honestly I laughed And the last one was yet another over cheesy brain cell murder fest I did like how it all came together at the end but I must say that if it wasn't for the festive season and this being my friend's book I'd offer it up as a sacrifice to the gods of good literature and maybe some people who've run out of scrap paperThe two stars are only for you John Green If I could I'd give you but that would imply I enjoyed the rest of the book which I most definitely didn't So there
