Second Helpings (Jessica Darling # 2) by Megan McCafferty

Second Helpings (Jessica Darling, #2)Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I’ll be the first to admit that Jessica Darling’s whining was getting to me.

And I’ll also be the first to admit that I didn’t think I was going to like Second Helpings. I mean, really, there’s very little new here. Mostly, she’s still in dire need of perspective and she’s also not the only one to point said fact out. Worse? She’s become even less darling (pun, definitely intended) from how she was in the first! How so? Well, what was with the sudden sex obsession? What happened to all the hyper observation skills that I was so impressed with in Sloppy Firsts?

The upside: she pined less over what she was pining for in the first one…

BUT was pining whining over something I didn’t imagine she would have (at least given how she was in Sloppy Firsts!) So Yeah… Boo! The real upside though was that she kept her humor, which is likely why I am still looking forward to the next one (even though I hear she only get’s less impressive with each book,)

Happy entries in my journal do not exist. Or if they do, they end abruptly with scenes and sentences; left unfinished because they're too gushy in a way that is sick and foreign. Like Fabio.

Rampant paranoia. No one knew what I didn't know yet.

Reread the (last) sentence. This is what senior year is doing to me.

Plus, how about the best line ever in you. YES. YOU. *Swoon* I was completely ready to give up on you, Second Helpings then you hit me with that?! So when I ask, who’s most surprised in admitting that she’s more than a little addicted to a series even despite a protag that isn’t all that likable given all her hang-ups/quirks/faults? Who, well, me. YES. ME.
