  1. 3.5 stars Truth is, I don t really have that much to say about this book Was it good Yeah But was it amazing Out of the roof wonderful Erm, I wouldn t say that The plot was fast, yes, and in this book, unlike the first one, the characters definitely were developed, so in that regard it was great.Obviously, since the last envelope never got revealed in the first book, I was definitely wanting to find out what s in it And all right, I ll admit it, this book was kind of missing that all over Europ [...]


  2. This one is somewhere between two and three stars for me, but I have to go with the lower rating because a I liked it less than 13 Little Blue Envelopes, and b the things that bothered me bothered me.I think with both of these books this one and 13 Little Blue Envelopes my main issue was that I m not only European, I ve also been to all of these places My criticism doesn t stem from Ginny s view of these places, because of course she was a tourist and would see them in a touristy light, but it w [...]


  3. Fans of Maureen Johnson have expressed both delight and dismay at the prospect of a sequel to 13 Little Blue Envelopes, originally published almost five years ago More Ginny More Keith squee say the optimists Maureen Johnson cannot possibly top the first book, especially since she didn t leave much in the way of loose ends, say the pessimists.Well, pessimists, let me put your concerns to rest This book is as good as and better than the first one You thought the wild careening around Europe was d [...]


  4. I m not a violent person, Keith said under his breath, as they climbed the steps to the second level of the bus But I ve really been meaning to work on that And here are the fruits of my labor I have two major issues with this book, namely, the absurd retconning and the blatant character flanderization.First Retcon For those who don t waste time than I would like to admit on TV Tropes I m speaking to everyone except Cecy , a retcon is RETroactive CONtinuity the author waving their hand and sayi [...]


  5. 3.5 starsIn my experience, it s a rare thing that a sequel outshines its predecessor but this was the case for The Last Little Blue Envelope, Maureen Johnson s funny and charming follow up to 13 Little Blue Envelopes.Straight up, I liked this book than the first Given the title, it s hardly a spoiler to say that the plot revolves around that last little blue envelope entrusted to Ginny by her Aunt Peg, and the journey it causes her to embark upon The characters, some familiar, some new, have a [...]


  6. I was hoping that I d enjoy this book much better than the first, but I honestly didn t It started off interesting Ginny receives an email from a stranger informing her that he has her backpack and the envelopes, including that last envelope that Ginny didn t get a chance to see So it s back to Europe for Ginny to continue her quest to fulfill her deceased aunt s wishes This time, we meet Oliver, who comes across as even dislikable than Keith And Keith I didn t care much for him while reading b [...]


  7. Some time ago, I unashamedly fell in love with Maureen Johnson s 13 Little Blue Envelopes I included it in an imaginary teen book club series I constructed as a library school assignment and I would still swear that it is one of the most perfect books I ve come across for a teen book club One of these days I ll have one and use it In the meantime I ll just continue to talk her book up to everyone I know In the first book, quiet, practical Ginny is ambushed by her inheritance from her late aunt, [...]


  8. This is exciting, but I m scared After reading 4.5Still had all the elements of the first book, but it was a little slow and incomplete at times.


  9. As you can see here, I did not enjoy 13 Little Blue Envelopes I was very disappointed because I know Maureen is an awesome person Hello, she subbed for John Green on vlogbrothers I would have hoped that when Maureen decided to write a sequel, she would have looked at some critical reviews and maybe seen if what they were saying was true This is quite mean, but authors do this all the time Just ask Lauren DeStefano BUT NO, SHE OBVIOUSLY DID NOT BECAUSE EVERYNGLEACKINGING I HATED IN 13LBE IS STILL [...]


  10. Near the end of 13 Little Blue Envelopes, Ginny s backpack, containing the last of her aunt s letters to her, is stolen before Ginny can read it Though she manages to work out what her aunt s final message is, she still wishes she d read the letter herself Months later, she s contacted out of nowhere by someone who says he has her letter and wants to meet her In England.This is the point where Maureen Johnson starts to prove that she is some kind of evil genius Oliver the letter holder , rather [...]


  11. I was so ecstatic when this book appeared on Netgalley Ever since I heard this was going to be a book, I was completely excited for it This return to the envelopes and the journey was bittersweet, because while it was great to reconnect with Ginny, it was sad knowing the last of Aunt Peg s letters would be uncovered, and that there wouldn t be any journeys after that.The traveling aspect of this book is incredible One of the main reasons I loved the first Envelopes book is because of the great [...]


  12. Why I Recommend Bumping This Down On Your TBR It has to create new conflicts from resolved matters in the first book, which means it messes with the resolutions and the aspects of the first book that we enjoyed.


  13. Alrighty, so it s like midnight And I could be working on writing my own book right now Or I could be reading the book I wrote when I was 12, because I took it upon myself to read it again just to get another laugh out of it it s horrendous and about talking cats But I m also sick and I have a terrible headache Seriously, every time I stand up it feels like someone is hitting me in the back of the head with an axe And I don t want to make that worse So, like, I guess I ll write a book review.Wha [...]



  14. After going on an amazing adventures do you ever feel like it s not over, or have a feeling that you haven t accomplished everything you need to do Well in this fiction adventure Ginny Blackstone heads back to London for the last part of her Aunts directions Looking forward to seeing Keith she ends ups going with Oliver the one who found the last envelope, Keith and a new friend Ellis Like the first book the head where ever the letter tells them to, so they could stay in England, or go to Irelan [...]


  15. This review contains spoilers for 13 Little Blue Envelopes The Last Little Blue Envelope has a slightly darker tone than the first book Ginny is faced with a situation involving an extortionist named Oliver who she knows is not nice and also might not be safe She realizes though that she will have to travel with him to fulfill the instructions in the last envelope.The boy she met in the first book decides to travel with her and Oliver, and she sees a different side of him that she hadn t seen be [...]


  16. I liked this book a lot than Thirteen Blue Envelopes I ve read reviews saying that The Last Little Blue Envelope was less adventurous than its predecessor but I beg to disagree Because while the first book felt like a flurry of one country after another, this one was personal And this time, there were no rules I loved that this book focused on the characters relationships while the countries they traveled to provided a backdrop that s both fitting and breathtaking at the same time And even if [...]


  17. So the last, stolen, blue envelope makes an appearance and Ginny is off on adventures again Lovely Perfect really, with the hostel full of cats.



  18. Disclaimer ARC received from NetGalley THERE WILL BE SPOILERS FOR THE BOOK IN THIS REVIEW Trigger Warning There s a surprising amount of bullying in this book by one of the main characters to another main character It ranges from verbal to physical, including acts done with a car I will be talking about it in my review, as well.When I first heard that there was going to be a sequel to Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes, I was cautiously excited and optimistic Maureen Johnson is a favorite author of [...]


  19. Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes was one of the first books I read when I first re discovered my love of YA during my graduate school years I d devoured most of Dessen s books and stumbled on 13LBE I LOVED it While I recall many people having issues with her parents letting a teenager gallivant across the world, I have such a horrible case of wanderlust, and always have, that I didn t give a crap whether it was realistic When I heard there was going to be a sequel I was ecstatic However, it had be [...]


  20. 2.75 stars Warning This review may contain spoilers to 13 Little Blue Envelopes and some off topic ramblings Open Endings Somehow I never quite got warmed up to the idea of them I like my stories with a neat end no matter how unrealistic and open endings get on my nerves People would say that open endings are artistic and reflect real life which has no climatic ending and they allow the reader s perceptive to reflect how the story ends, leaving no one dissatisfied I would say, well then what is [...]


  21. Holy shit, guys That was freaking boss Honestly, it s hard for me to describe how much I adore this book Everything was fantastic The plot The characters The way it was written I didn t want it to end, nor be that frustratingly short Spoilers from here on out First of all, I love Oliver Ahh I was so happy that he was introduced Keith has always annoyed me He s just, well, annoying And I dislike his name It makes me feel icky Buuut, Oliver Maaaan That man is pure sexiness I just wish Ginny and hi [...]




  22. Caution This review will contain some SPOILERS for BOTH Little Blue Envelope novels After Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes, we leave Ginny reeling from her intense journey of self discovery after she s gone on this wild, unbelievable traipse through Europe Of course, the only blemish on her travels would be that the last envelope that her late Aunt sent to her was stolen while she was on a beach in Greece I think it was Greece Personally, I wasn t too tortured about this dilemma in the first place [...]


  23. This is one of those funny times where I enjoyed the sequel than the original I feel like in this one, I flew right through it, eager to see what was going to pan out through the end In the last book, Ginny has her backpack stolen from her, along with the sacred thirteen letters from her aunt This book is the story of how a young man named Oliver finds it by buying her stolen backpack and basically holding it hostage Let me just say that this book did a very good job with character development [...]


  24. The Last Little Blue Envelope in some ways was even better than the first book.I loved the fact that there was a consistency of characters unlike in the first book, where Ginny travelled too much to have a consistent friend by her side.I had so much fun reading this book and I m so sad that it ended so soon I wish it hadn t.The only thing I did not like about this book was the ending I wish there had been a better closure It didn t feel like an ending, to be honest It was as if the author just l [...]


  25. What a sweet sequel to 13 Little Blue Envelopes I really did enjoy getting to catch up with Ginny and taking the adventure of that last little blue envelope Is Aunt Peg weird Yes Are we all a little weird Yes I love the idea of someone you think you know, who you have figured out turns out to be different than you realize Oliver was different than he seemed, even Aunt Peg We all are different, and you just have to figure out how the two personalities collide I really enjoyed this book, and I fee [...]


  26. My 2008 self is very glad I finally finished this sequel but it was hard for me to remember what happened in the last book because that was 9 years ago that s crazy Anyway, I liked this sequel it was a fun audiobook to listen to Not my favorite narrator though something about ladies reading for guys voices is just not that great sometimes.
