Book: The Crowning of Calla Lilly Porter" by Rebecca Wells
Release Date: July 1st 2009
What in the world happen here Rebecca? Seriously? I've waited a year and a half to read this book? I don't understand. The three YaYa books were magical. I couldn't put them down. I was so excited to find this one at the library that i snatched it up. Was i ever disappointed. I could barely finish the thing. There were no magic. No feelings of warmth. Nothing to make me care for Calla Lilly of anyone in this book. In fact it makes me wonder if Rebecca lost her edge here. I was so emotionally attached to the YaYa's that i was sad to let them go. I don't even want any of the characters here. The only part that pulled on my heartstrings was the chapters where "M'Dear" was dying. Mainly because it was like reading my Aunt Bev's death in print. Except take out breast cancer and insert colon cancer.
So so very disappointed... I hope Rebecca either returns to the YaYa's or makes characters i can care for in her next novel....
Too tired to write anymore and frankly i have nothing else more to say.
Rating: 2 bunnies.
