Not groundbreaking, but a good twist and story about finding yourself in the era of fashion in 1700s (ish) Pari. Our main characters Frances And Sebastian had great plot line and character arc. Defiantly pick it up.

Only three books left to read, we‘ll see what I think about this? Probably another trash guilty pleasure

New buddy read, liking the Native American influence and to learn a bit more about how it could look like for a person whom grows up in a community like this. 🥰

carol2585 This book has been on my tbr for pretty some time now and I finally decided to read it.

Ask Again, yes! Is a slow paced family drama which revolves around two neighbours the Gleesons family and the Stanhope family, the strong bond of friend between their children and how the tragedy of one night changed their lives forever. The book talks about many things like friends, love, mental health issue and how family history can effect one‘s currently life.

I was only going to give this book a 3 star rating at first, but ended up giving it one extra only because I was able to finish it. Though well written, its slow pace made it very boring at times. The characters were likeable but I thought the author should have done more justice to them.

The book is divided into 4 parts, the first part was quite interesting, while the remaining three just felt flat. However, the author was able the create some sort of mysterious build up in the 3rd and 4th part, which urges the reader to hang on in the hope that there would be a twist, only to be disappointed at the end. There are so many questions that were unanswered, which according to me, should have been played around with to add some sort of twist to the story like where was Brian Stanhope that night it all happened and why did he not stop her? I think that the character of Brian Stanhope should have been more developed rather than going completely silent.

Is it only me who want the know where Brian was? Or do others also feel the same? Feel free to leave a comment

Overall, a family drama with a happy ending!

Challenge 1: Question 1: What actress would you pick to play the main character?

I choose Cobie Smulders. I think she can pull off Georgina snark and whit. #PLC

LibrarianRyan Hummmm. I always pictured Maggie Q 3y
Bookjunkie57 @LibrarianRyan had to look her up (I‘m terrible at this cause I known no new actresses 🙃) but I can see it. 3y

4 stars! I can say I enjoyed reading this book (more than I expected) during my way to Florence😄 Sometimes it was a bit cheesy but still it wasn‘t bad. It‘s a YA book about a summer trip to Europe, so It never can be bad!
