Buddy Review: Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle

Let It Snow
I bought this book last Christmas to read and didn't get a chance so I was really excited to read it for a buddy review with Kelly. Unfortunately, even though we both finished the book well before Christmas, we didn't actually finish our discussion until recently. First please go read the first part of our discussion at The Written World and then come back here to read part 2!

Kelly: hahaha! Especially thinking back on it now when we just had a snowstorm. Back when I read it we hadn't had any snowfall yet, so it wasn't so bad. It reminded me of some storms we have had though and the depressing notion of shoveling out my car! I don't like being trapped. If I have a good book it is one thing, but it never seems like it snows when I can just sit around and enjoy it. There is always the car to shovel out or the job to get to. (Actually, it is now raining out, so disregard the snow mention. That has apparently stopped!) So, I guess what I am trying to say is that I could relate to this stories. I know what it is like to be snowed in. I doubt I would ever want to live where there was no snow ever, but sometimes it does get to be a bit much. I couldn't imagine not having any snow, or the even more crazy notion of never having seen snow period! I got a bit off-topic here...

Did you have a favourite character in the stories?

Amy: Now that's a hard question!! I don't think so, though I did really like the Duke (Angie) I thought she was super cool and Jeb was very sweet. How about you?

Kelly: I know what you mean! It is so hard to pick because I thought they were all pretty great, you know? They were entertaining and really added to the stories. Even the secondary characters added to things. I think if I have to pick someone, though, it would probably be Duke. She reminds me of me in many ways, so I really could relate to her. But, since all three of the authors did such a great job everything worked really well.

Amy: Hmm what else do we talk about? LOL

Kelly: Do you recommend the book? Was it a good holiday read?

Amy: Yes! I thought it was a very fun read, perfect to read at anytime during the holiday season young or old alike. How about you?

Kelly: I like that it was a winter read. Christmas played a part, but it is perfect for this time of the year. It really sets a mood and I can relate to the snow!

Since Christmas is gone by, we should probably wrap this up and post it! We should do another one in a more timely manner. It was fun!

Amy: Agreed! Great, fun book.

We are going to read and discuss another book together and by the way does anyone not love Kelly? Thanks for doing this buddy review with me, Kelly!

I don't read a lot of romance either, but might enjoy one around the holidays. Nice review.

I just commented on Kelly's post - recently I've seen some negative reviews of this and it's nice to see a positive one. I got this from bookmooch but it came to me too late to read for Christmas, so I'm saving it for next December.

I love this dual review thing. Bravo! Very cool!

Melissa said...

I saw on Kelly's half that you haven't read any of John Green's books. For shame! Read them. :-) (Granted, being a bit of a fan, I'm biased, but I think he's a great writer....)

Kathy--the holidays are the perfect time to read romances!

Amanda--it really is a fun read, I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it.

Juju--it's lots of fun!

Melissa--I know and it's not for lack of having them on my TBR pile or hearing all manner of good things about them.
