Carrie Soto Is Back


Taylor Jenkins Reid

Rating: 12/10

I think that this was undeniably the best book I have ever read in my life. It is currently 2:20 AM and I have to wake up in less than 7 hours. Yeah, it's that good. When I saw this book in the bookstore, I was intrigued because I remembered Carrie Soto from Malibu Rising! I knew then and there I had to buy it immediately, and boy it didn't disappoint. This was one of the most balanced books out there — it had an amazing storyline riddled with challenges and failures along the way and an internal struggle to become the person she was destined to be. The character development is nothing short of amazing, and I really enjoyed the crossovers starring Daisy Jones and especially Brandon Randall. It's nice to see that he's still the villain in this book, and I thoroughly despise him. If you read the summary before reading the book (I haven't), then you'd see that this is a classic "I'm going to prove myself to the world" trope. Personally, I loved it. I mean, it's brutal seeing someone so engrossed in pure metrics and personal success, but it's hard not to draw connections to myself too. Sometimes I consider myself to be a workaholic, and I guess this book is a reminder of what not to do. At first, I thought that I wasn't going to enjoy this book because 1. I knew nothing about tennis and 2. I. never expected sports to be portrayed in such an exciting way. But wow, I have never been this wrong before. If you want a thriller, romance, self-help (kinda), and pure enjoyment ALL IN ONE PACKAGE, then this is most definitely the book for you! It will not disappoint! After all, I would never give bad recs...
