Start your review of Snow in Love
Snow in Love is a heartwarming holiday anthology that just came out at the end of 2018! This is a collection of four short stories, but I truly only recommend two of them. Seriously, this is a wild break down of two five star reads, and two one star reads. But I truly loved two and I hated two. Yet, I also truly believe the Kasie West and Nic Stone’s stories are so good that it would be worth it to pick up this collection, especially if you are in need of a little holiday cheer!

Overall this feels like a 3.5 star read. I LOVED the first and last stories, but the two in the middle were just not right for me at all. This definitely put me in the holiday spirit though and I highly recommend to anyone that wants a little holiday cheer this month!

Snow and Mistletoe by Kasie West - 5 stars
So predictable but I don't mind because I realized I was grinning like a fool while reading the ending! Because you can see it coming, the short length was perfect to give you a dose of holiday fuzzies while not dragging anything out. I felt like I got to know the main character the best of the 4 stories, maybe because this was the only one written in first person. The road trip was interesting, the friends were enjoyable, the romance was sweet

A collection of short stories by four different authors just in time for the holidays. I think my favorite was Kasie West’s story, the first one, which featured a group of friends trying to beat a snowstorm and get home for the holidays. Just the right amount of holiday cheer 😊.

Snow and Mistletoe - Kasie West ★★★★

This winter-y tale was really wholesome and cute and for such a short story, the plot was actally well done and pretty fun as well. Amalie, on her way back from Italy, gets stuck in an airport when her flight is cancelled because of a snowstorm. She ends up taking a road trip home with a few people from her school she has never really got to know until now, trying to outdrive the snow chasing on their heels. Sweet little story.

Like many of us in the fandom of YA contemporary reads, I love a good, fluffy Christmas story, but I find that “fluffy” contemporary works best for me in short formatting, so that I can just focus on a cutesy love story without needing much back story. Needless to say, I was excited when I heard about this collection coming out, because it’s exactly that: fluffy, cutesy contemporary romances set around Christmas!

Snow in Love wraps up four cute-as-can-be holiday stories to help readers get in the holiday spirit. Each one was fun and holiday-ish in its own adorable way.

My favorite story was by Kasie West. The woman does adorable…sorry I mean ADORABLE like no one else. I adore her style and characters. Snow and Mistletoe is filled with her trademark sibling banter, heart, and warmth. Plus she combined two of my favorites—road tripping and Christmas! Wait—three of my favorites!

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.

3.5 stars.

The real shining jewel in this collection was the story by Nic Stone, a story about two black girls stuck in an airport during a snowstorm doing a scavenger hunt. Even in just a few short pages I felt deeply connected to both girls and I really love the fact that it wasn't just a serving of cheese; Nic Stone delves into racism and how it doesn't disappear when people of color happen to be wealthy, which is kind of a crap idea I've seen people spew. This story was a 5 star read and has

It was a cute story. I really liked the group of friends, they were all quite funny. I love me a good road trip and this one didn’t disappoint.

I originally rated this 5 stars but thinking back on it I can't remember a single thing that happened in this book. Its 4 stories and I remember there's snow and holiday stuff in it because that's the title.

I went into this a few years ago just for Kasie's story and to maybe find a new author I would fall in love with without having to read a full length novel. But I don't remember clicking with any story and tbh I can't even remember Kasie's story. I normally can recite a novel front to back th

Really enjoyed the Kasie West story, thought the Aimee Friedman story was okay, didn't like the Melissa de la Cruz Story, though the Nic Stone story was okay.

So, this way okay!

If you’re on the hunt for something that will leave with all the warm, fuzzy feelings that also has a holiday twist, you’ll be in luck with Snow in Love. This four story collection is basically just like a holiday rom-com done four ways, and I found it really enjoyable (even if it might not stay particularly memorable). Kasie West’s Snow and Mistletoe is about a girl returning from a year abroad studying music, who ends up stranded in Denver and joins a group of former schoolmates on a road trip ...more

I adored Kasie West's story in this ~ 5 stars, super cute and breezy and the perfect chill out and read vibe.

Awkwardly, I didn't like any of the other 3 :( BUT it was worth it for Kasie's story alone, which I read in one sitting on Christmas day, and already am planning a reread. How does she do it?
Cute short stories that were predictable.

Snow in Love is a book that has about 4 short stories within it. Some you might enjoy and some that might annoy you a little bit. Whether it's a certain character (or two) or maybe the entire story line. At least for me, I had one favorite story and the others were just okay.

The first book, Snow and Mistletoe was one of my favorites. Probably because it was the first short story and it got me in the mood to finishing this book but the characters were just

This was adorable. Exactly the winter snowy read you didn't even know you needed. It's four stories, not connected in any way and each show a different side to the holiday season.

I loved the mix of different stories. Of course, the first one is my favorite and by one of my favorite authors. The second one gives the typical push at consumerism with an adorable story. The third one was the only one I didn't love - it was a story told too many times. The fourth one was my 2nd favorite and was also

I put this on my list as soon as I saw Kasie West was a contributor to this collection and I should have saved hers for last, because not all of these stories hit home for me--definitely a case of my personal taste.

Darling and utterly predicable, yet swoony and sweet. I loved the way the characters got to know each other in this snowy adventure.

This one wasn’t terrible but I wasn’t invested at all. The romance didn’t make that much sense when the main character had been rude for most of the story. I was just kind of bored while reading.

A common theme in the reviews I see for this book are people loving/enjoying Kasie West and Nic Stone's stories and then not enjoying the other two. I am pretty much in the same boat.

West and Stone had my favorite stories, with Nic's taking the cake for me. There was something about this scavenger hunt sapphic love story that gave me the warm and fuzzies. I definitely would like to read this again. Kasie's I enjoyed though it felt a bit predictable which did take away from some of my enjoyment.

Snow and mistletoe: 5/5* - cute cute cute.
Working in a winter wonderland: 3.5/5* - cute story but it felt very superficial.
The magi’s gift: 4/5* - surprise, also a cute story. But this one also gave me a weird feeling I can’t describe. Whilst the ultimate goal was making one another feel happy, the undertone felt very materialistic.
Grounded: 5/5* - shocker, also a very cute story. Besides that, I liked the text messages in-between and I definitely
