Este es el POV de Lily y Lo durante los eventos de Kiss the Sky y Hothouse Flower, por lo que había dudado si leerlo o no, porque eso de leer las mismas cosas, sin importar que sean desde otro POV, me aburre enormemente. Sin embargo, leí varias reseñas que aseguraban que este no era un retelling y que se enfocaba en nuevos sucesos... Pero cuando comencé a leer el libro no tarde mucho en darme cuenta que todo era mentira. Porque esto sí es un retelling.

Claro que nos encontramos con un par de pensamientos nuevos de Lily y Lo que eran imposible saber en los libros anteriores, pero en general es más de lo mismo. Mismos eventos, mismos diálogos.

De hecho, después de un rato comencé a pasar de largo todo lo que fuera un copia-pega de los libros anteriores, porque me daba demasiada pereza volver a leerlo, y nada más leer lo que fuera realmente nuevo. El resultado de eso fue que me salte prácticamente todo el 60% inicial del libro. E inclusive después de eso me salte una que otra escena.

Lo que me molesta al respecto es que las autoras vendan esto como una historia nueva cuando no lo es. No ofrece nada a la historia de Lily y Lo. Si querían escribirla, genial, pero al menos hubiesen advertido a sus lectores. O en último caso la hubiesen ofrecido gratis. Al menos yo, me arrepiento de haber gastado mi dinero en algo que no es más que un resumen de dos libros que ya tenía. ( )

I've never felt so bad about giving a three-star review -- because this is the Ritchie sisters, and I love everything they write. This book is amazing, and I would have adored it if I hadn't already read Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower. Because, as much as I love these authors, Thrive doesn't have enough new material to warrant 400 pages.

I went into Thrive knowing that it occurs during the same time period as Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower, the first two books in the Calloway Sisters spin-off series. I thought it might focus more on what was going on in Lily and Lo's life while Lily's sisters were dealing with their own stuff, but it's really more like Lily and Lo's reaction to the events of the other books. Sure, it gives a little background into why Lo was so adamantly against Ryke and Daisy's relationship, or what Lily was thinking during the filming, but it's still the same events from the previous books.

The writing is great and the story is good -- if you haven't already read Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower. Unless you're a die-hard fan of the Ritchie sisters, you can probably skip Thrive in favor of the more exciting spin-off novels. ( )
