A review by isabezza
Carrie Soto Is Back by Taylor Jenkins Reid

emotional lighthearted medium-paced


I was rather disappointed by TJR despite my love of her writing style (TJR writes about fame, rivalry, and family so well!) However, the references to her other novels were less subtle and exciting than instances from other novels. Similarly the romance themes were cliché. Whilst I particularly enjoyed the character development for Javier, Nicki, and Brandon, I could not empathise with Carrie, finding her mind style disagreeable. Sometimes I was inspired by her ruthless attitude and other times I was weary of it. Perhaps when I read Malibu Rising in the future I will learn more about Carrie Soto's characterisation and like her more.
