The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson
Published by HarperCollins
Blackstone is off on another fun, romantic, and hilarious European
adventure in this irresistible sequel to Johnson's breakout hit "13
Little Blue Envelopes."
I enjoyed reading The Last Little Blue Envelope and like the closure it gave the series. It was a fun, fast paced and light read which was perfect for a sunday afternoon read.
The books picks up after the first book as Ginny gets an email about the final of the 13 envelopes which she never got to read after her bag was stolen towards the end of her adventure whilst in Europe in the previous summer.
For me this book was a bit of a comfort read. You knew exactly what was going to happen from the moment you opened the first page and you pretty much had a rough idea of where the story was going to go. Don't mistake this as a criticism as it isn't because sometimes that's exactly what I want out of a book. I loved getting back to Ginny, a character I loved previously, and I enjoyed following her mad-cap adventures following the letters of her wacky aunt around europe.
The thing I loved most about this book was the characterisation. I really enjoyed getting to know Ginny again and I loved seeing her bounce off the people around her, especially Keith.
A light, enjoyable albeit predictable read which I enjoyed.
