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.

My Thoughts

This is my fifth John Green book. It’s about Colin Singleton, a smart guy, who has been dumped 19th times by different girls who shared the same name, Katherine. He went on a roadtrip (it’s really a John Green book) with his bestfriend, Hassan and ended up finding a “job” in Gutshot, Tennessee and stayed at Pink Mansion where Hollis and her daughter Lindsey lives.

First, the footnotes in this book are cool. Second, I have to be honest about the “mathematical” thing like the variables, graphs and formulas. It’s interesting but I’m not in the mood to focus on those. Hassan is my favorite character in this book. Lastly (not really), the “German” words. And I can say that I understand those words even without looking at the footnotes.

It’s a hilarious, funny and unique.
