    1. I didn't love this book. I liked the Christmas Jars much better - and maybe because it shared a great idea for helping others during the Christmas season. Like many projects, sometimes a good idea gets out of hand and this book presents that scenario. Instead of individuals saving and sharing their change they brought the jars to a central location for distribution - and kept tabs on how many jars they had. They had a lot of jars to distribute in one community! I kept thinking that in today's wo [...]

    2. This was a nice continuation of the first book. Not quite as emotional, but still a touching story. Sometimes a good idea can get too carried away. The original idea of sharing Christmas Jars with those in need is the best way to spread joy of the holiday.

    3. Skip this one and read the first one. This one just didn't hold together. (view spoiler)[I kept expecting to find out that Al was Hope's father and it felt like the author intended that but chickened out. (hide spoiler)] That might have made for a more interesting book but the romance is where it really fell flat. It's just not a good book.

    4. I thought I was going to pick up Christmas Jars, the first book, but it turned out that my library didn't have it. They had this second installment instead. I was bummed but I went ahead and checked this out anyway. It didn't disappoint. It gave enough background of what I assumed happened in the first book to keep me up to date. A bit repetitive but I let it slide because the book as a whole was heartwarming and I'm a sucker for heartwarming stories! Although it wasn't awesome writing, the powe [...]

    5. I read the first book Christmas Jars and loved it so much that I had to read the reunion one. In this book we go back to Chuck's Chicken n Biscuits with Hope and her goal of giving away 1001 Christmas Jars. I enjoyed reading more about Hope and her life's journey. In this book we also get to meet some new people. Queen who is the best little girl and she will pull at your heart strings. Al who is does not know it but his life will be changing soon. And Clark who is a good guy who does not know w [...]

    6. Grabbed this off a shelf of "Christmas themed" books at the local library last week. Because it happens to be a sequel (unbeknownst to me when I picked it up), I felt a little lost at times in the story, but the gist of the book is a good one. People connected to Chuck's Chicken 'n Biscuits initiated, at some point, the "Christmas jars," which are a small gesture of goodwill shared with others, perhaps less fortunate, at Christmastime. THe idea is that people toss their loose, spare change into [...]

    7. I hate to be the first one to give this book two stars, but I just wasn't feeling it. I really liked the first book and love the concept behind it, but I found the writing to be canned and the storyline predictable. I was really disappointed!

    8. This is the first book I have read by Jason Wright - it will not be my last! I needed a light, easy, change of "season" book to read and came across this one. Afterwards I realized it is actually the second book in a series. It was slightly hard to relate to some of the characters not having read the first book, but still very enjoyable. The writing at times is a little too sweet and innocent, but again not enough to make me quit reading or put it down. Not to be a spoiler . . . but I might just [...]

    9. I think reading the first novel in this series would have helped me jump into the story, but this one flowed well and kept me apprised of the history between the characters. Watching the characters progress and grow through the author's words kept the story real and interesting as they tried to reach a huge goal: 1001 Christmas jars by Christmas. This story offered a positive message during the holiday season.

    10. this was the continuing story of the Christmas Jars, which has added so much more meaning of giving in my life. It reminds you giving is about Christ giving to us. So, get ready to put youself to the side and make a step up to giving to others who are in need. IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU, BUT ABOUT THE JARS!!

    11. One Christmas JarThis is a book that can touch each person that reads it and I do hope there are many that do read it and take it in, breathe the words in, feel the words and live the words. Many lessons were learned during this book, and in what a changed world this would be if each of us would open our hearts and take it all in, only one Christmas Jar.

    12. Christmas Jars Reunion picks up the story where Christmas Jars left off. I felt the first book abruptly ended without answering all my questions. This book answered those questions. Awesome Christmas story! Loved it!

    13. I enjoyed this sequel to the first one. It makes you realize that giving is something we should all focus on at this time of the year. Love the idea of starting a Christmas Jar to give to either a needy person or to an organization.

    14. Such a disappointing sequel to the lovely original. I kept waiting for a twist to come but it just really fell flat. Couldn’t quite tell what the point of this one was.

    15. Feel good book about the spirit of giving/charity. This sequel to Christmas Jars also includes a clean romantic interest.

    16. I won this book through the firstreads giveaway and was delighted when it arrived so quickly. I was even more delighted when I began reading and shortly discovered that it didn't matter that I hadn't read the first book in the series (which, by the way, I plan on seeking out after reading the Reunion book). This sequel was a very good, feel-good book that focuses on one of the many true meanings of the Christmas season.ng; and giving gracefully and graciously from your heart. I love the idea of [...]

    17. This book was better than the original but not by much. Even though I enjoyed the first book, I enjoyed this one a little bit more. In this book, readers get to meet new characters who are struggling with their own version of faith in humanity. Al denies a little girl, Queen Lara, her jar several times, because he is too prideful and doesn’t understand the concept of him needing what the jar represents, not what’s actually inside. I would like to add that I was happy to see that Queen got he [...]

    18. Synopsis: "The New York Times bestseller Christmas Jars has sold nearly 500,000 copies. Thousands of people across the country have emailed the author at ChristmasJars about how the Christmas Jars tradition has touched their lives� either by receiving a jar or by giving one. Hope Jensen's story continues in Christmas Jars Reunion. It's been two years since Hope was reunited with her biological mother on Christmas Eve at Chuck's Chicken 'n' Biscuits. Hope has never felt more complete. She's wri [...]

    19. If you haven’t read Christmas Jars, the New York Times bestselling book by Jason F. Wright, you’ve missed out on a classic Christmas story that will change how you view the season of giving. Its sequel, aptly titled Christmas Jars Reunion is reminiscent of the first. Across the country, a phenomenon has begun to unfold. Since the release of Christmas Jars, hundreds of readers have contacted author Jason Wright and shared their Christmas Jar stories, and thousands of Christmas Jars have been [...]

    20. It has been a while since I read Christmas Jars so the characters were not as familiar as I would have liked but I still really enjoyed this book. It reminded the world what a difference one person can make. I enjoyed the first book in the series so much that I actually bought the book and Christmas Jars for several of our friends and family for Christmas one year. Editorial Review:If you haven’t read Christmas Jars, the New York Times bestselling book by Jason F. Wright, you’ve missed out [...]

    21. I was one of the lucky winners for this book in the Give-a-awayd was worried that I would have to read "Christmas Jars" first. Luckily, the author provided a short prologue. However, I became overwhelmed when reading the first ten pages or so because a dozen different characters were mentioned and it was kinda hard to keep track of who they all were (the characters were related or connected to one another in some way - I'm sure they were introduced in the "Christmas Jars"). I would say that by [...]

    22. Won this great book! Read it in two short sittings and really liked it and love the concept of the Christmas jars. Well written and easy to read. It is a second book by Jason Wright and I didn't feel like I missed anything not having read the first book, although I enjoyed this one so much, I will read the first one. The really cool thing is that there really are Christmas jars in the real world. Each chapter has a quote from emails that he recieved from people who either received Christmas jars [...]

    23. In this sequel to Christmas Jars, Hope loses sight of the tree meaning of the Christmas Jar and tries to set a goal and make it into a commercial venture. It takes a change in the Maxwell family, a new friend, a new love, and the struggles of a young recipient of a previous Christmas Jar to return Hope's vision to the lesson of the Christmas Jar "One jar, one birth, one Savior." Jason Wright really seemed to focus on the fact that sometimes well meaning, thoughtful projects can get out of hand, [...]
