Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty

*no spoilers*
This isn’t a review so much as a (pre)view. This is me throwing my thoughts together for a time-sensitive verdict.

Perfects Fifths is a culmination of Jessica’s one of a kind witticisms and repartee, Marcus’s mystique, meta-intertextuality, highbrow pop culture, and the bittersweet history between the two we’re all too familiar with.

And it is good. Unpredictable as ever, but good.

And that is all I am gonna say on that subject. For now.

I still can't decide if I should read the rest of this series. I've only read the first but it didn't leave a strong impression. I'm confused. lol

Korianne said...

Steph your killing me here. I don't want spoilers but why must you tempt me with this preview. I demand a Review! lol, totally kidding, I know you have only had this book for a day or less. How long did it take you to read? 6 hours like I prodicted?

Steph said...

Korianna - haha you were right, that's what it more or less took. I promise there'll be an actual review of sorts later!

I'm incredibly jealous you got to read this already.

Thao said...

I got the ebooks of four first books but I never read *sighs*

Holly said...

So Steph, can I ask a question? I don't want any spoilers or anything, but I found book 4 slightly boring and never finished it. Would I just be able to pick this one up and read it, or do I need to try and get through 4 first?

Steph said...

Holly - Not at all. You just have to know the outcome of book 4. Do you know it? If so, you can pick up on this no problem. It's hardly even referenced. I think mostly book 2 and 3 are referenced because that's when their actual relationship took place. Hope that helps :)
