13 Little Blue Envelopes

13-Little-Blue-Envelopes1

Ginny’s eccentric aunt passes away suddenly and leaves her with nothing but 13 blue envelopes. Each contains instructions and a challenge to complete before opening the next letter. She begins her journey in London and begins to meet some pretty incredible people.

I absolutely loved this book. It was a little bit chick-flicky and a little bit young-adulty and a little bit bitter and a little bit joyous. This was the second book recently that makes me want to travel on the cheap, to explore places while carrying only a backpack.

I loved Ginny and her slow transformation from wall flower to world-challenger and I loved the glimpses of her aunt and the combination of flaky and absolutely fantastic and how real that is. Nobody is perfect, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate people for what they are.
