Welcome one in all to my very first Book Review!
So lets begin and enjoy.
Title: The Second Summer of the Sisterhood
Author: Ann Brashares
Goodreads – 3/5 stars
With a bit of last summer’s sand in the pockets, the Traveling Pants and the sisterhood who wears them embark on their second summer together.
Coming from watching the movie first, it was a bit confusing at times due to the order of the story line compared to the movie. I am not saying it is not a good book, just pointing out that the movie is a bit different then the book which in all cases they usually are but from my point of view the movie is frankly based off of book 2 and 3 at least from reading the back of the 3rd book it sounded like it.
Once i realized that the second book was different in some ways i changed the way i was thinking of the book minding some characters like Bee, Tibby and Lena all had good story lines i was a bit upset that Carmen did not or possibly just that it was the same type of situation as the last book.
Bridget: Bridget’s story was great to read, wondering in what part of the book the mystery ( my way of not spoiling it ) will be unrevealed and how it would turn out was interesting to me.
Carmen: I can relate a lot to Carmen for many ways or reasons, but her story line was just the same as the last book.
Tibby: I liked Tibby’s story line to the point by the near end i was starting to tear up! i know usually i try to hold it in but this time that was an issue.
Lena: Lena’s love line with her Bapi was great, but i couldn’t really get into the love line with Kostos. There is not much i can really say about Lena, i loved the ending kinda got a bit excited but still not happy how the roles played out.
Something i did like: I liked that the girls no matter how far or troubled they were still had each other!
Something i did not like: THEY NEED MORE OF THE PANTS TO BE INVOLVED! I noticed i kinda lost track where the pants went because it went to different girls at a fast pace. But from what i noticed the first book had so much more happening in them it felt like most the time they never worn them or had any luck in them.
