Little Blue Envelopes was a book which had been in my TBR pile for quite some
time. I was glad to finally be able to read it after I discovered Anissa @ TheBookworm Central wanted to reread it. We read it together and it was so nice to
discuss this read with someone!
the traveling side of things. Ginny’s trip takes her all across Europe to
places like London, Denmark, Amsterdam and so many more places. As she is an
American, she really gets culture shock and the author highlights elements of
the cultures that I didn’t know, or hadn’t realised were so unique. As I am
from Europe, I’d been to quite a few of these places, or lived in them, so it

throughout the whole thing.
I was really getting invested, when all of a sudden the ending came. It did
close some ends, but then it didn’t close some either. I didn’t agree with the
choice that Ginny made in the end. It’s a personal thing, but I was also pretty
mentioned in the review, so why does it only get three stars? Because although
I did enjoy the novel, it wasn’t
mind-blowingly amazing. The pace was slow and steady the whole way through, and
it didn’t have enough suspense or build up for me to be fully immersed in the
