This is the perfect Christmas accompaniment, this book had me gripped from the word go, I practically read the entire book in one sitting and just had a few pages to finish of over the weekend. I absolutely loved each individual story and how they all intertwined with characters and settings. As this book was structured into 3 individual stories by 3 separate authors I am going to talk about each story below and give them a mark out of 5 then at the end I will give the book an overall mark.
I absolutely loved this story to the point where it may rain above the rest as my favourite of the three. It was the perfect introduction to the setting and most of the characters that feature throughout the book. The opening story tells of the lovestruck Jubilee who’s Christmas doesn’t exactly go to plan when she finds herself on a train that is stranded by the snow. Her night begins to look up when she spots a Waffle House in the distance, little does she know that as she steps through the door that her night will take an unexpected twist. I am giving The Jubilee Express a 5 out of 5 stars.
As this is written by John Green I had high hopes for this story and I’m so happy to say I was not disappointed. A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle was fun, packed with good vibes and a real throwback to school day friendships and priorities of a 16 year old. This story really made me laugh and the pace of the book paired perfectly with the plot. it was so easy to read and I hadn’t realised I had reached the end until I reached the last page. I am giving A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle a 5 out of 5 stars.
This story took a slightly darker twist than the first two as it is based around a break-up. However it may sound depressing for a book centred around Christmas time, this story has some very valuable life lessons whilst involving three friends and a teacup pig. Can you imagine anything better? I give The Patron Saint of Pigs a 4 out of 5 stars.
What’s fair to say is I could read a full book on each of these characters. As I reached the end of each story i was genuinely upset, I wanted to learn more about their lives, their families and what would happen next. I would love a sequel of any sorts because despite being over 400 pages in size this book was easy to read, addictive and set around my favourite holiday of the year. I would highly recommend it, especially if you like chick-lit, romance or the perfect Christmas read. I am giving Let it Snow a very solid 5 out of 5 stars, I enjoyed it that much that I am tempted to read it again. It is a very high contender for becoming another book I read each Christmas.
