Book Review: 2 Different Books

Over the past month and have I’ve read one really good book and another really weird and good in its own way book.
Before vacation I bought and started reading a book called Paper Towns.  It was one that I just stumbled across via Amazon and thought it sounded alright so I bought it.  It took me a bit to get involved in the book but after I did I just kept reading because I had to know then by the end the excitement and suspense had tapered off then it just ended sort of sucky and not at all like the author lead up to be.  I was disappointed in the book and kind of felt like all that reading I had done to get to the end was pointless.  It wasn’t a type of book that I usually go for and it was a bit out there for me.  Either way it was an experience and I finished it on the plane ride home from Costa Rica.  If it strikes your interest maybe read it but if you don’t you’re not going to be missing a HUGE story.
When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows her. Margo’s always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she’s always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they’re for Q.
Now for the pretty good book that I started on vacation but finished a week or two ago is Jackie Collins' Confessions of a Wild Child.  I had never read any of her books before and I think this was a great one to start with.  Not only did this book keep me entertained it also kept me reading to figure out what happened in the end. Don’t you just love those type of books?  I do.  To top it off when the book ended I could tell that there must be more and well I was right.  After searching online Confessions of a Wild Child is just the latest in the Santangelo series.  Below is a complete list of the books in the series.
Lucky Santangelo. A fifteen-year-old wild child ready to discover life, love and independence. Daughter of the notorious Gino, Lucky discovers her mother's murdered body floating in the family swimming pool at the tender age of four. Since then Gino has kept her protected from life closeted in their Bel Air mansion. But in Jackie Collins' Confessions of a Wild Child, Lucky finally breaks free, and running away from boarding school the adventures begin. Boys, sex, drugs and rock n' roll - Lucky explores it all in preparation for the strong, kick-ass woman she eventually becomes. Delve into the world that Lucky rules!
I’m currently reading the first book that started not only the series but kicked off Jackie Collins career, Chances.  I think this series is going to be great for me to read through the summer and enjoy every minute of the lake and sun!
Happy Reading!
