Book Review: Going Rogue, Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich

Going Rogue: Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich was published on November 1, 2022.  The novel opens with Stephanie Plum arriving at the bonds office on a Monday morning, and office manager Connie Rosolli isn't there.  When Stephanie finally gets into the office, the file room has been tossed.  Then comes the ransom call, which sends Stephanie on the hunt for a mysterious coin that she needs to get Connie released. The Stephanie Plum book series is one that I've come to love and enjoy when I need a light read that will give me some laughs.  Right off the start, this edition has yet again made me think it's now being ghost written because Lula is asking if one of the people bonded out by Vinnie is Joe Morelli's grandmother.  Lula already know who she is, so this is what made me think that it's ghost written.  If the author just wanted to reintroduce Bella, there had to be a better way to do this. With that being said, I absolutely lov

Book Review: Mallory and the Trouble With Twins (The Baby-Sitters Club, #21) by Ann M. Martin

Mallory and the Trouble With Twins (The Baby-Sitters Club, #21) by Ann M. Martin is told from Mallory Pike's point of view. When Mallory gets a consistent babysitting job watching over the Arnold twins two days a week, she's thrilled. That is until Marilyn and Carolyn switch places and act like spoiled brats.

This edition of The Baby-Sitters Club took me down memory lane as I was obsessed with this series in middle school and desperately wanted to start my own babysitting club. Rereading this as an adult, I was not disappointed. The only thing I remembered about this book was that Mallory desperately wanted pierced ears, but I had forgotten the rest of the storyline. 

The thing I most enjoyed about Mallory and the Trouble With Twins is that it explored how twins felt about being treated like the same person just because they look alike. It just shows that there are underlying reasons for why kids may be acting out other than just being a brat. The thing I liked least about this book was that the other members of the baby-sitters club just thought that Mallory was a terrible sitter until they each experienced how awful the Arnold twins acted. All in all, I enjoyed this book and gave it five out of five stars.
