Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle – Book Review


Hey guys, I’m back with another book review! 🙂 So yesterday I started Let It Snow, and I read almost the whole thing in one sitting (except like 30 pages because it was 2am and I only had three hours of sleep and I just couldn’t read anymore). This is one of the better books I’ve read in a long time! I’m not sure if it was the sleep deprivation .. but I thought this novel was hilarious … especially the Tinfoil guy! Seriously, what was up with that guy? I still don’t get why he wore tinfoil from head to toe, including a tinfoil hat.

This novel contains three separate but inter-related stories authored by three different authors, John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle. I enjoyed them all equally and honestly love these three authors collaboration. Even though the stories were different, they all related to each other and the reader saw appearances of the characters from prior stories and by the last story everything came together.

The basic premise of the novel was that there was a snow storm near Christmas and each of the characters found themselves on a different adventure as the train they were on crashed. Though most of the stories started off sad because something drastic happened to the characters on Christmas, they all ended so sweetly, and really put the reader in the festive spirit!

If you haven’t read this book yet, I suggest that you do before the end of the holidays because you won’t regret it. It’s a fast-paced read, that will leave you laughing, smiling, and in the festive mood! 🙂

I give this book 5/5 stars!

Some of my favourite quotes from the novel:

“It’s always awkward when someone doesn’t realize you’re joking and devotes thought time to what you’ve said. Double that when the person is wearing tinfoil.”

“What tinfoil?” he asked.

“We study there a lot because… what other choice does society give us, right? It’s Starbucks or death, sometimes.”

“Neither rain nor snow nor sleet nor hail shall close the door of the mighty Starbucks.”

“Its not what the universe gives us that matters, but what we give the universe”

“…a taste so profound and complex that it can’t even be compared to other tastes, only to emotions. Cheesy waffles, I was thinking, tastes like love without the fear of love’s dissolution…”
