Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

The Madness Underneath  - Maureen Johnson I liked this sequel, mostly because I like Rory, the plucky protagonist, despite the fact that I wanted to shake her for doing a Very Dumb Thing (but sometimes when we are young, or, to be honest, even when we are old, we do Very Dumb Things, so I'm trying to not let my judginess about her Act Of Dumbness color my opinion of the entirety of the book).

All in all, if you liked the first one, you should like this one, though it focuses less on Wexford and more on Rory's turmoil and Very Bad Choice.

However, that ending, while appropriate and all, JESUS. Talk about a painful, abrupt cliffhanger.
Why couldn't I have started reading these AFTER book #3 came out?
