Trouble Makes a Comeback
Achieving high school “normal” wasn’t as hard as Zoe Webster expected, but she’s beginning to think Hollywood oversold how much fun it all is. Isn’t dating a jock supposed to be one long Instagram dream? Shouldn’t she enjoy gossiping 24/7 with her two BFFs? And isn ...more
(I might make another playlist for the last book-I basically have 2 playlists for this series atm. Check back with me once the third book has been released: Trouble Never Sleeps ??? OMG)
THIS BOOK WAS UNBELIEVABLE AND I COULDN'T EXPECT ANY LESS. I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! *By the way, I'm reviewing the ARC of this novel*
I loved every minute of this book! This was so much better than the first one. In the first book, Di ...more
- OTP is gold and I finished this book with a silly smile on my face because of that.
- the love triangle was kind of dragged but honestly it didn't bothered me, it was pretty clear what was going to happen and I think it was necessary so Zoe could have a character development, realizing what she thought she ...more
Zoe and Digby are so irrational and semi-dysfunctional and somehow it really works for them. I really liked the aspect of Zoe trying to be "normal" and the additional characters that brought in. Sloane was especially fun.
The plot was crazy and completely unbelievable and yet I was captivated from the beginning. There was still a lot of eye rolling and I couldn't commit to ...more
So so good. I'm obsessed with Zoe and Digby. And their little group of misfits; Felix, Henry & Sloane.
These books are the best kind of feel-good, dark and intelligent mystery & humour combination.
I hope there's a third book coming! THERE BETTER BE! ...more
Digby's back, and the team is getting back together for even crazier shenanigans! Digby's matured a little (but he's still the irreverent, fast-talking nerd from book 1) and he's still hunting down the people who kidnapped his little sister and destroyed his family. Zoe's finally gotten her life back to normal, j ...more
So, Stephanie Tromly, how do we move on from this? When's it going to end? Are we ever going to escape from Planet Digby? Will we ever want to?
The real review of the book: The slow reader in me got kicked into high gear, and I couldn't wait ...more
Super entertaining and interesting. It was light even when Zoe and Digby got into a lot of trouble. It was definitely fun.
The characters were amazing like in the past book, however the Mom keeps being the weakest character. After everything she went through with her ex-husband she still acts like a stupid teenager in this book.
(view spoiler)[ So I hate this motherfucker who will exchange information about Sally for the research. I want him dead and I hope he'll be in a lot of pain. I want t ...more
**I received a copy of this book via NetGalley**
So I admittedly did not realise this was book 2 in a series when I requested this and have not read book 1 so this will simply be a breakdown of my thoughts rather than a full review.
* This book is populated with fun and wonderful characters. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Zoe and Digby but I was particularly taken by the misfit kids who made up the rest of the gang.
* The writing in this is really fun, witty and heartfelt an ...more
Trouble Makes a Comeback picks up a few months after the previous book. Zoe is in a relationship with Austin, and her previous actions have long since been forgotten. More people are accepting of her, and her Mum has a boyfriend who Zoe likes. Most importantly Zoe h ...more
This series is so much fucking fun, I swear. There should be more humor novels in YA. While I don’t think Trouble Makes a Comeback was quite as pitch perfect as Trouble Is a Friend of Mine, I once again read the whole thing in just a few hours, totally caught up in the hilarity.
For the most part, I dropped the rating because I feel like the plot arc of this novel’s less cohesive and satisfying. Plot-wise, there’s a bit of a ...more
Everyone knows, when it comes to acting, comedians are the best actors out there because comedy is THE HARDEST thing to get right. I will say that same about writing. And Stephanie Tromly NAILS IT. These books, you guys. Just read them, please. It will make your day. I'm so pleased this second book is just as amazing as the first. Seriously, SO MUCH FUN and the writing is superb, and the characters! Bravo, Stephanie! <3 ...more
Reading about them makes me feel like
Of course the plot is very zany and wacky yet clever and I appreciated getting back to spy hijinks with the crew, Sloane included, and I am so excited for this third book please give it to me now.
Digby threw the car keys for me to catch. "Say you got lost," he said....more
"Why don't you say you got lost?"I threw the keys back to him.
"They'd believe it more if you were driving." Digby threw the keys to me again.
This time, I threw the keys at him. Hard.
"Hey," he said.
"That was sexist," I said.
"I'm not sexist. I'm saying they are." He shook off the hand he'd used to catc
But whatever relief I got from finally unloading on him lasted exactly as long as it took for me to speak those words, because Digby said, “The phone rings on both ends, Zoe. You never called me either.”
And then he left.
Again, while reading this book I laughed, got excited and worried, but unfortunately this time, I did not enjoy it fully. I did not like Zoe's character and actions in this book. She neglected her boyfriend, lef ...more
Like I said in my review of book 1, I wasn't that impressed with the execution of the story, nor the characters, but as I had been approved for an ARC of the sequel, I decided I had to read Trouble Makes a Comeback, and I think I'm glad I did, as I preferred this one to book 1.
I'm not going to write a long review this time, especially seeing as it's been 3 years since I read it, but the dynami ...more
The author tends to make up words in a sarcastic but smart way that even I couldn't help but be impressed by it. Her writing definitely marks the highlight of the series.
This book was totes completely hilarious, smart, sarcastic, and more action-packed too than the first book. You know, I didn't even read Trouble Is A Friend of Mine to begin with. This one...more
Now, about the plot and the characters? it was incredibly rush and I am very sure we did not have a closure or anything near it. I found Zoe too annoying and too much like any other YA heroine. Nothing new there, the plot seemed too far-fetched and I am not a fan of love triangles. I am really, really, really ...more
