LullabiesLullabies by Lang Leav
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There are books that need to be experienced, not just read and reviewed.

There are books that affect me on a personal level that I had to pause and think after finishing a page.

There are random words that can be combined by an artist to create something meaningful.

"Lullabies" is Lang Leav's sophomore book. Like the first one "Love and Misadventure", it is "woeful and whimsical". This time, though, it included longer, deeper and more sensual poetry. You can either hate it or love it.

Let It Snow

Let It SnowLet It Snow by John Green
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I always had this idea that you should never give up a happy middle in the hopes of a happy ending, because there is no such thing as a happy ending. Do you know what I mean? There is so much to lose.

This book has three interconnected stories focusing on three different plots. The stories are written by three authors.

Surprisingly, my favorite was the first one written by Maureen Johnson. The main character was funny, quirky and loveable. The second one is my second favorite, written by one of my favorite authors of all time, John Green. As expected, he wrote like he were stuck in his teenage years and that's a good thing. The story was fun and light. It has quotable quotes like I expected it to have. I had a love-hate feeling for third story by Lauren Myracle. At one point, I think I rolled my eyes, but the main character has her own redeeming factors.

The book succeeded in making me think of Christmas and love, but I don't think this is the perfect read if it was snowing outside and I had to curl up by a fireplace.
