Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood
Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood | Ann Brashares
15 posts | 91 read | 2 reading | 7 to read
With unraveled embroidery and fraying hems, the Traveling Pants are back for one last, glorious summer. Lena: Immerses herself in her painting and an intoxicating summer fling, fearing that the moment she forgets about Kostos will be the moment she sees him again. Carmen: Falls under the spell of a sophisticated college friend for whom a theatrical role means everything and the heritage of the Pants means nothing. Bridget: Joins a dig for an ancient city on the coast of Turkey and discovers that her archaeology professor is available in every way except one. Tibby: Leaves behind someone she loves, wrongly believing he will stay where she has left him. Join Ann Brashares's beloved sisterhood once again in a dazzling, fearless novel. It's a summer that will forever change the lives of Lena, Carmen, Bee, and Tibby, here and now, past and future, together and apart. From the Hardcover edition.

I finished my first book for the #24in48 #Readathon. I can't remember when I first started this series, but it's been at least a decade. It surprised me with each book just how much I enjoyed what was essentially a book written for teenagers (which i haven't been for far more than a decade). This one was a lovely conclusion. Now moving on to Eat, Pray, Love. 🌎

LibrarianRyan It‘s not the conclusion. Braschers wrote an adult book that shows the girls 10 years later. It‘s just as wonderful. Ohhh it was such a fitting and not fitting end. 10mo
Traci1 @LibrarianRyan oooh, I didn't realize there was another. Thanks for the heads up. ☺ 10mo

Well, I'm getting an early start on the #24in48 this morning, thanks in part to a husband who snores like a chainsaw. Since I couldn't sleep through the racket, I decided I may as well enjoy the peace and quiet downstairs with my coffee and my book. Hope you're all enjoying the #Readathon so far. 📚
@24in48

Hoopiefoot I‘ve got one of those too 🙄. Enjoy your cozy reading spot! 10mo
Elizabeth2 This is a lovely photo! My favorite time to read is when everyone else is still sleeping, but by the time I‘ve made the coffee and settled in, invariably someone disturbs that peace within a few minutes...I guess I don‘t get up early enough. Enjoy your quiet time. 😊 10mo
Traci1 @Elizabeth2 it didn't take long for my 3 year old to decide he was "all done bed," but the peace was nice while it lasted. ? 10mo

I'd love for this to be true. I'm not sure if it is, though.

Libby1 I agree with you. 10mo
Gina Not so sure I agree with that...🤔🤔🤔 10mo
C.Perone Actually, it really is true....An extremely hard concept to wrap your head around and practice on the daily, but true. The best explanation of this I heard from Bobby Petrocelli at a parent program called 10 Seconds 10mo
Traci1 @C.Perone I think maybe personality plays a part in how difficult this is to maintain. I tend toward melancholy and pessimism, so I think it's harder for me to not see pain and suffering as inevitable. It's certainly something I'd like to overcome, though. 10mo
C.Perone @Traci1 Good point about personality; really good point. Might be why it was so difficult for me unlink pain and suffering into two distinct concepts and processes at first🤔 Thank you for that 😊 10mo

I love these girls and it was hard to listen to them going through their hardships. But I know that the next book will be even tougher 💔

Disappointed in some of the unhealthy decisions made about sex in this one that were not addressed properly. It is fine that the author wrote the girls doing these things, but to comment that there was really no regret or consequences is not reality. I think it could have been handled better. I did think Bridget‘s interaction with the married man was well done though. I enjoyed reading this series with my daughter. Great discussion for us.

I started off this review very introspectively and philosophical and promptly forgot everything I wanted to say, so I'll simply say that I'm so glad this series was a part of my teenagehood and that I took the opportunity to revisit and reread it in adulthood.

Last in this series but not least! And before I start this, I just wanted to pat my own back and say how happy I am with my choice to start Mission Declutter my Library with these books. ❤️

That one thing that happens with my favorite character still haunts me from this one. I think a reread is due for all of them.

I love the sisterhood of the traveling pants, so when I saw this copy in the bookstore I simply had to get it.
