Review

As an avid fan of any book about the holidays, I was thrilled when I heard about Snow in Love by Melissa de la Cruz, and so many other amazing authors. This anthology is comprised of stories from some of my favourite authors, and each story is so cute. My personal favourite had to be Nic Stone’s work. This book is the perfect thing to get you ready for the festive season.

Snow in Love was just what I was looking for to cozy up with as the weather is getting colder. It features stories from four authors who I love that each revolve around the holidays. I found the anthology to have a very good mix of stories with plenty of diversity. I actually enjoyed all the stories, which is very rare for me. Ultimately, I loved the warm and fuzzy feelings that I got while reading.

Of all the stories, my favourite had to be Nic Stone’s Grounded. It tells the story of a scavenger hunt in the airport and contains some multimedia aspects. What I especially enjoyed is the fact that story has both its adorable moments and its serious messages. I was impressed at its ability to discuss issues like racism in a sensitive manner, while still remaining festive. Honestly, I’ll read anything set in an airport and anything to do with the holidays, so this book was a real win for me.

Snow in Love is a festive anthology with four adorable short stories. I enjoyed all the stories, but my favourite had to be Nic Stone’s contribution. If you are looking for something short and sweet to get you into the holiday spirit, I would definitely recommend this one.
