The Last Little Blue Envelope (Little Blue Envelope #2)
Ginny Blackstone spent last summer traveling around Europe, following the tasks her aunt laid out in a series of letters before she died. When someone stole Ginny's backpack—and the last little blue envelope inside—she resigned herself to never knowing how the adventure was supposed to end.
Now a mysterious boy has contacted Ginny from London, saying he's found her bag....more

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 more 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 al ...more
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, ...more
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 aroun ...more
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 more 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 ...more
In 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 more 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, ...more
This time, we meet Oliver, who comes across as even more dislikable than Keith. And Keith! I didn't care much for him while ...more

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 ...more
*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 j ...more
So, 13 Little Blue Envelopes was my very first Maureen Johnson book. It is what made me fall in love with her writing. It was such a terrific story. On the surface, a tale of a teenage girl overcoming her shy tendencies and traveling around Europe at the behest and expense of her recently deceased aunt. But, of course, Ginn ...more
Ready for a new adventure, Ginny heads back to London where she meets Oliver, the boy with the letters and her bag. He tells her that he won’t give her the letters unless she agrees to let him c ...more

I read 13 Little Blue Envelopes in January and instantly fell in love with the story. When I got to the end and realized that Ginny (and therefore myself) will never know what the last letter said, I was devastated. I’m not even being dramatic; I was really upset and threw the book on my floor. I know, mature. I think I was more pis ...more
