I have always enjoyed Maureen Johnson's books and Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes was always my favorite book by her. This sequel to that book was a great read and brought me right back to the original story. She did a great job of summerizing the original story so that if you had not read it in awhile, as I hadn't, you were quickly brought back up to speed. Old charcters were blended quite seemlessly with new ones and the story was a joy to read as it took me on quite a ride. I find this book particularly enjoyable because I have been to so many of the places it travels to. All and all a great read that I will recommend to just about anyone. ( )

After a week-long reading hiatus, I finally finished the sequel to 13 Little Blue Envelopes! I didn't have to wait long to read it after the first book. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed at how one of the supporting characters acted. I don't know who is worse: Keith or Oliver. Both can be assholes on separate occasions. The adventures they had together were not as exciting as the previous one, and I find the route redundant and frustrating to go through; they were going through a loop. Did Aunt Meg predict that Ginny will tag along many people on her journey?

I'd like to enter this books for 2021 PopSugar Reading Challenge prompt: a book about art or an artist (Aunt Margaret/Peg) ( )

This is a continuation of “13 Little Blue Envelopes”. Potential spoilers for the first book: Ginny didn’t get to finish her aunt’s “treasure hunt” when her backpack with the envelopes was stolen in Greece. She had one envelope left.. Back at home in the US, Ginny hears from someone who has that last envelope, and he’s in London. Ginny decides to travel back to London to get her hands on that last envelope and keep going. While in London, she looks up the boy she’d been dating, Keith. Ginny, Keith, and two others set off to follow the instructions on the last envelope that brings them to a few different European countries.
A bit better than the first, but definitely for young adults! ( )

I really enjoyed this one. It appears I read the first book 6 years ago!! I found it interesting that I commented in that review that I wasn’t a fan of Keith; still not in this book, either. However, I did like the new guy, Oliver, who was the one who found Ginny’s envelopes. Also enjoyed “travelling” around Europe with Ginny and her friends; I particularly enjoyed the B&B in… I think it was Belgium (cats!). ( )

I'm trying to decide if this book was better or worse than the first one. give me a few days to decide. ( )
