Cover Love: Well, it is certainly very cute for a contemporary novel. And I don't like the person on the book for Ginny, but, hey, I'm not a graphic designer.
Summary: Ginny Blackstone thought that the biggest adventure of her life was behind her. She spent last summer traveling around Europe, following the tasks her aunt Peg laid out in a series of letters before she died. When someone stole Ginny's backpack--and the last little blue envelope inside--she resigned herself to never knowing how it was supposed to end.
Months later, a mysterious boy contacts Ginny from London, saying he's found her bag. Finally, Ginny can finish what she started. But instead of ending her journey, the last letter starts a new adventure--one filled with old friends, new loves, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Ginny finds she must hold on to her wits . . . and her heart. This time, there are no instructions.
My Thoughts: First book. Loved it. Second book, this book...LOVED IT EVEN MORE.
I was brought on this journey in the first book and then after a while things just settled in and when I realized that the letters were stolen.
What?!?! HOW CAN YOU DO THIS TO ME!?!? YOU CAN'T DO THIS.
But later on, after my sorrows had faded, I realized...There is a second book. And so then when I saw it at school in the library, I was like:
I must have it. And I got it, but enough on that. Back to the book. The book went at a very good pace I felt, but at some points, it was just boring. Really boring and I hated that.
Ginny's development was fantastic. She went from this sweet, shy girl to this girl who takes chances, this strong independent girl. Except at some points, I just wanted to slap her because she was that typical, "Oh I have never seen a boy in his underwear. OH MY GOSH." And I'm like:
And it annoyed me to the point where I just didn't like her anymore, but it ended when she stopped talking about seeing Oliver in his underwear. Because SHE KEPT TALKING ABOUT IT.
And Oliver, he was adorable, I loved him even though he was a douche sometimes and the smoking....God. But otherwise it was amazing.
Well, nothing really to say, this is a short review on this book. I loved it. I really did. Great second book.
