Life can change an instant. A cold February morning… a snowy road… and suddenly all of Mia’s choices are gone. Except one. As alone as she’ll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all.


A good friend of mine (Hello Nina!) recommended this book and said that I will love it. Well, she’s right. I don’t have any idea about this book so I was a bit shocked when i was in the “accident” part. Then it caught my attention. Some scenes made me cry specially when it’s a family related scene.

This book is about love for family, friends, partners, life and death.

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 see only 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 from 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 with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.


My Thoughts

I bought this book after Christmas (February) but it’s still accurate because February is a “love” month and it’s still snowing (until now).

This book consists of three short stories about romance, friendship and relationship that are all connected to each other. My favorite is Maureen’s “The Jubilee Express” and Jubilee is my favorite character in this book. I like her attitude and the thing about her and the “cheerleaders”.

John Green’s “A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle” (My fourth book from Green) is written like his other books (which has a roadtrip “scene”). I just had a hard time remembering who’s who (well I’m not really good with names) so I often go back to the previous pages and search for the name.

Lastly, “The Patron Saint of Pigs” by Lauren Myracle is my least favorite but it makes me want to have my own tea-cup pig pet.

All in all, it’s a cool book. You can still enjoy reading this even if it’s not Christmas season or even if it’s not snowing.

Book Review : Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

attachments

“So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.”


This is a cute story. Lincoln works as an “internet security officer” and through reading flagged employee’s emails (that’s his job) including Beth’s and Jennifer’s, he fell in love with Beth. Meanwhile, Beth fell in love with Lincoln just by seeing (and even stalking) him around. They found out about each other when Lincoln resigned from the company. The ending was pretty rushed but I still love it.
