The fourth book in the Jessica Darling series. I nearly gave up after Charmed Thirds, which I found far to rushed. All of Jessica’s college years packed into one book. The ending hooked me though and made me want to read Fourth Comings. All the endings of these books have been fantastic.
Fourth Comings is set over just one week in Jessica’s life. As she tries to decide whether or not to accept on/off boyfriend, Marcus Flutie’s marriage proposal.
I really liked this one. It’s my favourite so far. Jessica grew a lot as did the other characters. Who all try and give advice on what she should do. My favourite piece coming from Hope, Jessica’s best friend, who we eventually meet in this book.
“You don’t have to agree with me, but I think the heart of who we are stays pretty much the same,” Hope said, “What changes is how those core traits manifest themselves over time.”
I also liked the way it was written; as a diary to Marcus explaining her thoughts and how she eventually decides what answer to give.
I’ve just started Perfect Fifths and am loving it too, so far.
I actually didn’t like this one as much, but loved PERFECT FIFTHS! I hope you enjoy it!
I haven’t read this series, yet. Something to look forward to!
S. Krishna – oh me too. Finished it yesterday and reviewed it today. It’s perfect!
Linda Jacobs – definitely
I really liked Sloppy Firsts, and Second Helpings (was that the name of it?) was my favorite, but then from Charmed Thirds the series just started to slide down hill for me, and I liked each one less and less (they’re reviewed on my blog).
But I hope you enjoy your reading of them!
Heather – oh I loved the last one I thought it was the best of them all.
