Hello Bookworms, and welcome to another post from The Paperback Princess! I hope you all had a wonderful week! I’ve been a busy reader lately. I actually finished 3 whole books this week! Today I will be doing a book review on one of those books called ‘The Mall’ by Megan McCafferty. So let’s get right into it!
Genre: Young Adult
Number of Pages: 320
My Rating: 8/10
I read this book for 3 reasons. #1 The cover drew me in. I love neon and bright colors. #2 I really enjoy Megan McCafferty’s books and figured this one would be good too. And finally #3 It’s set in the 90’s, so that immediately made me want to read it. (I miss the 90s so much)
This was a cute little read. It’s set in 1991, so it wasn’t the exact 90’s I was used to. But still. The characters were good and there is a cool little treasure hunt that happens in the story that was probably my favorite part. I personally hate the mall, but this book made malls sound so cool and fun. Maybe I just need to work at one? lol. Anways, just a good read that doesn’t make you think too much.
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
The year is 1991. Scrunchies, mixtapes and 90210 are, like, totally fresh. Cassie Worthy is psyched to spend the summer after graduation working at the Parkway Center Mall. In six weeks, she and her boyfriend head off to college in NYC to fulfill The Plan: higher education and happily ever after.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…
Set entirely in a classic “monument to consumerism,” the novel follows Cassie as she finds friendship, love, and ultimately herself, in the most unexpected of places. Megan McCafferty, beloved New York Times bestselling author of the Jessica Darling series, takes readers on an epic trip back in time to The Mall.
And that’s it for this post! I hope you all enjoyed another book review from me. There are plenty more to come with how fast I’m reading right now lol. Anyways, I will see you all next week for another book review!
