My Experience: I started reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue on 8/2/16 and finished it on 8/7/16. This book started out interesting. The story surrounding Lily is not what I was expecting. The writing is still great but I feel more lost about the plot than ever. It would have been great if the characters could share with readers their strategic planning steps to finding what they are looking for. There were a few new characters introduced into this book and they brought some new mystery into the story. The covers in this series are too amazing! I need to read this series again and hopefully understand better.
Pro: the title of the book is mentioned in the book, which is nice
Con: lack of research and planning,
I rate it 4 stars!
