Love from London

Oh, you guys, I've been so eager to post a review for Wintergirls, but I've managed to misplace the piece of paper I took notes on. I'll find it, I know I will, and I really hope I can get a review up for that spectacular book sometime soon. In the meantime, I've got plenty of other reviews lined up ready to be written, so here goes :)

Love from London
written by Emily Franklin

The spirit is the same in yet another installment of Emily Franklin's fantastic Principles of Love series, but something's just a bit off about this one. While the new hints about Love's mother are certainly intriguing, they were the best part of the book. Love predictably gets another guy, and as well-developed as a character he is, in the end, he's just another one of Love's revolving door of random guys. Love's snobbish side seems to come out full-force in this one and it just wasn't the same. Something was just off, different about this book. It was annoying, really, since it's a series and one book shouldn't stick out as different from the rest of the series, but that's what this book does. Maybe if it were a stand-alone, or a companion novel, it wouldn't feel like filler. Who knows, maybe some of the filler plays a significant part in the other books and was necessary, but something tells me that isn't the case. Looking forward to obtaining All You Need is Love!

Rating: 3/5
