Cotton Candy

Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover - Ally Carter

These Gallagher Girl books are a bit like cotton candy.  They can be a enjoyable bit of mindless fluff, but quickly go cloyingly sweet and then become stale.  I've been spacing the books in the series out, but partway through Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover, I started wondering if I was really reading a new book, or just a twist on the same plot as the last one.  I guess it will be a while before I return to this series.


I listened to I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You as an audiobook, which might have increased my enjoyment, but my local library doesn't appear to have access to the others in the series as in the audiobook format. Ah well.
