I’m not going to write a review for 12 individual stories as it would take a while, so I’ll just talk about the stories in general.
I don’t read these types of books often and before Let It Snow I don’t remember the last one I did read. I found this book kind of difficult because I would just start getting into the story and then it would be over. Because they were so short, I feel like some of the stories were rushed and most of the stories were ‘love at first sight’ which I don’t really think happens. Because of this I didn’t enjoy all of the stories.
I think my favourite one out of all the stories was definitely Midnights by Rainbow Rowell. It had a back story and the progression wasn’t just a few days, it was years. Also, it was relatable.
