Book Title: Until Friday Night
Series: The Field Party Genre: Young Adult Author: Abbi Glines
Reading this book was solely for compliance purposes. I found the second book of this series, found out that it is about to come out this month and I kind of didn't want to read the next installment before I read this one. Now I have done the skipping phase before. There were times I've read the third book without even opening the first or second book. I only read the books that has the description that would suck me in. It really doesn't matter to me who the author is, If the description did not appeal to me, I'm not reading the book.
I've read some of Abbi Glines' book before. The rosemary and sea breeze series in particular and some others but in those series I failed to read the rest of the installment. I stopped at some point because the story line became kind of familiar and the characters kind of become similar. It was like the installments of the series were just written for the sake of each character to have a story and even though I know the writing would be good I still opted to not read the rest. I don't really know why I'm surprised at all when I finished reading this book. After all, Abbi always get my sweet young heart swoon every time and this book in particular, I can't help but say I've fallen. I forgot how great and sweet and oh so lovable YA romance could be.
The book is good. West and Maggie were good. There were a lot of cute moments that was enough for me to feel something. But, once again, the book felt familiar. I also found so many things that didn't sit well with me. It was cute how West could just lean on to Maggie for support but the way I see it, it is indeed some kind of an obsession. Also, the way West is coping and how he is just an asshole was a little annoying to me because then he would get protective which is not on the right time. Then there's Maggie. I need more from her, not just some background story. I want to be able to see her because she is still transparent to me. The way her story was told felt like there was something missing. I'm perfectly partial to the book and I feel like the rating I'm giving it is accurate. I can't wait to actually read the next installment. I'm waiting on it.
