I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

The Last Little Blue Envelope

The Last Little Blue Envelope - Maureen Johnson I think this rounded out the first book really well. I had some lingering questions from the first one (I think that was how it was supposed to be) and they were answered in this one. I didn't particularly care for Keith in the first one, so I was glad for the addition of not only his girlfriend, but Oliver as well. I thought the foursome brought a better dynamic to the second story.

We get to see Richard a bit more in this novel and I was glad for that. I really liked him in the first one but thought we didn't get enough face time with this character. What I didn't really expect though, was the development of their relationship as uncle and niece. While I don't think they truly act like uncle and niece, they do pull together like a new family and certainly do have a strong bond that was forged by Ginny's aunt.

The conclusion on this was more satisfying than the first, although we really don't see an ending to the book as I would have liked to have seen. Despite that, I really did enjoy the story, I liked reading about Ginny going back to the places she's already been. Some of it felt like it was on repeat, but as a whole, it was enjoyable.
