4.0 out of 5 stars Good, But Not What I Was Expecting, December 29, 2008
This review is from: Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances (Paperback)
I...well, to be honest, I didn't like this anywhere near as much as I was expecting. That's not to say it wasn't GOOD but I was expecting something that would blow me away. And this was not it. I've decided that since if the first book I've reviewed with multiple authors, I'm going to take each story separately.

Jubilee Express by Maureen Johnson - This story and this story alone is what kept me from giving this book a lower grade. MJ has been a favorite author of mine for quite some time and she definitely does not disappoint. The story itself is definitely the most original of the three and the characters are incredibly well developed, probably moreso than you'd expect for a story this short. The relationships seemed so real and even though certain things seemed unlikely, it was impossible to put the book down.

A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle by John Green - Surprisingly, this was the story I expected to like most but ended up liking least. It wasn't very original, I had the ending predicted half way through the story, and the characters seemed to fall slightly flat. The one thing I did love, though, was the prose. I loved the slang and descriptions used. Unfortunately, I think I was expecting more from Green, after hearing so many fabulous things about his writing. I can only hope his regular novels are better.

Patron Saint of Pigs by Lauren Myracle - Lauren Myracle is absolutely fabulous. Her humor and craziness are just to be adored and they definitely show through her writing. Patron Saint of Pigs is a ridiculously cute story. Yes, the characters weren't very well developed and the plot was slightly predictable but the story is just so ridiculously cute.

So do I recommend this or not? Definitely but just don't expect the stories to blow you out of your seat
