Rgz Street Team: Miss Erin Reviews Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle

The rgz Street Team is a group of teens who bring YA reviews to our blog, led by Postergirl Miss Erin. Find out more.

Today, Miss Erin reviews Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle:

Let it Snow is a collection of three novellas, all taking place somewhere around the time of Christmas (Eve, day of, day after...). Each story is a romantic dramedy set in a little town in North Carolina. Characters from one story make cameos throughout the other stories, which provides a nice sense of interlacing and connection.

I wanted to actually read this during Christmas time, but it came in late for me at the library, and then I had to put it off because of Cybils reading. I'm glad I finally got around to it, though. It's a good winter read that is just as enjoyable now as it would've been during the holiday season.

To find out what Miss Erin liked best about the three stories, read the rest of her review here.

I really like interconnected stories, and I particularly enjoyed how, even if I hadn't read the bylines, I could tell exactly which author had written which story.

I enjoy books by each of them, so it was a treat to get all three at once!

I read this book over Winter Break and thought it was really cute! I didn't even know it had intertwined stories when I went into reading it, so it was a nice surprise! Definitely a good read for by the fire =)

This one's on my list for sure. I really enjoy interlinked stories. Sounds like a fun read.

I especially liked how the three stories wove together, too. I'm curious how the three authors worked together to do that.

I'll be dropping this book in Anchorage, AK, on April 16!
