Hi everyone! Once again, another apology for being so super late on my blog posts. Like I mentioned about a billion other times, I am two weeks late on my reviews which means you guys should be getting reviews in just about every day this week! Exciting, isn’t it? I promise I will never let you guys down like this again. I know I’ve probably lost all my followers but I am willing to work to gain them back again!
So that’s about all I’ve got for now 🙂 Thank you all for being patient while I am dealing with the mess that I call my life 🙂
The book I will be reviewing today is The Secrets of Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson.
The Secrets of Peaches Rating: 8.5/10
After the first book in this series, Peaches, I didn’t think the series could get any better. Oh, how I was wrong! The Secrets of Peaches literally blew me away. I extremely enjoyed hearing about Birdie, Leeda, and Murphy again. They are just such unique characters I wish they were real people. Once again, like in Peaches, I felt like I didn’t quite agree with the characters’ actions at certain points and I didn’t feel like their decisions were all too realistic.
The girls are back, and better than ever. Now visiting Darlington Orchard by choice, Murphy and Leeda realize that the orchard is falling into a deep panic – Birdie’s father just isn’t racking in enough cash. Through the spiral of misfortune, Murphy learns that she may not be accepted in her college of choice, Leeda’s mother may have a certain disease that sends her going crazy, and Birdie must face the difficulties of a long-distance relationship.
I was amazed by the quality of this book. When I didn’t think this book could be any better than its predecessor, I was wrong. That’s a perfect example of being pleasantly surprised. The girls were fun and sometimes I even wish I knew some people who were as exciting as these three. While it was amazing, I do feel like maybe the characters may have been too unrealistic. It’s just my thoughts, though, so don’t let me stop you from reading this super-awesome novel!
This is good for people who are
The Secrets of Peaches would be a good fit for
-people who enjoy a light, nice story
-people who like books about friendship
-anyone over the age of 14
Basically, . . .
Basically, The Secrets of Peaches is fun for a nice story that isn’t too intense. It’ll bring out the bubbly side of you and it might even make you giggle at times! (Didn’t think you could do that, could you?) Additionally, Spring Break is right around the corner, well for me anyway, so this would be the perfect time to drop by your local Barnes N’ Nobles and pick up a copy. I would really not recommend it for a book report book unless you’ve already done its first book, otherwise it would be too hard to explain. Quality advice there, people!

Once again, I am really really sorry about just leaving you all like that. I wish I could rewind time and fix everything I’ve ruined. I’m so sorry, you don’t know how upset I feel right now 😦
