A review by eloise_bradbooks
Carrie Soto Is Back, by Taylor Jenkins Reid


This is a solid 4 stars for me, because it's clearly a very well written book, but I must admit that for a Taylor Jenkins Reid book, it didn't quite live up to my expectations.
What I loved was the way this story was told. The narrator and main character has a great voice, she pulls you in and keeps you interested. In TJR fashion, there are also news excerpts, interviews with other people in this universe who have their own views on Carrie Soto and the people around her. And that part brings a whole other level and depth to the story.
Despite this, I just didn't care as much as I wanted to...
Carrie starts off pretty annoying, only doing what she's doing for her glory and never thinking about other's. And yes, she does grow, but only very close to the end. I could clearly see where everything was going from the beginning.
So despite the gripping way it is written, I didn't feel any surprise or anticipation or even care about the relationships which were somewhat developed throughout this story, not as much as I'd expect from a Taylor Jenkins Reid book anyway.
