Taking a Pause.

July 05, 2015

Hi Guys, 

*Takes in a deep breathe* this is going to be one of the hardest things that I ever write here.

I was meant to write this post back in February, but I procrastinated and procrastinated for months.

But if I don't do it now, I will never do it.

I am actually about to cry.

I have been blogging for nearing 4 years, and I have absolutely loved it. It has given me so much joy and happiness and I really am so glad to have started. 
And no, I don't think that I started off right, but I realised that I was unhappy and made a change. But this time it isn't like I'm not happy because I am. 

Rachel get to the point!

Fashion Assassin (Jessica Cole: Model Spy, #2)Fashion Assassin by Sarah Sky

Disclaimer: I received this book for review from Scholastic, but that didn't change the fact that I enjoyed the book. In fact, I did ask for the book, because I read the first one and really enjoyed it, but that doesn't affect my review, although I got the book for free.

Fashion Assassin (#2) Blurb:
Models, spies and lipstick gadgets in this fast-paced teen series.Supermodel Jessica Cole has no intention of ever spying again after she was nearly killed by an embittered ex-model and a rogue MI6 agent. That is until she's blackmailed into posing undercover as bodyguard to a very rich fellow model. What seems like a simple job aboard a luxurious yacht in Monaco soon turns into a deadly mission to stop the most dangerous weapon in the world falling into the wrong hands. Jessica will need every gadget in her make-up bag if she wants to get out of this one alive.

I read Sarah Sky: Code Red Lipstick way back in February or March, after the UKYA Extravaganza where I originally bought it. I really loved the book, it was super enjoyable and surprising, because I didn't think that I would enjoy a teen crime novel. But I did.

After I joined the blog tour for the final book in the series, I was offered this book, and I gladly took it, because I wanted to catch up on the events of the story before picking up the third and final book after it came out.

Fashion Assassin is the second book in the 'Jessica Cole: Model Spy Series' by Sarah Sky. These witty novels starring fourteen year old model and spy, Jessica Cole, are each a crazy mystery which she solves with the help of her quick mind, and usually against the will of some professional agent...
This time, Jessica is in Monaco, dealing with the stroppy, spoilt supermodel daughter of a Russian millionaire. Something strange is happening, but can Jessica solve the issue before the past catches up with her?

I had a small issue with the book which is why it just missed out on a 5 star rating, and that was this; Jessica is too mature. I am not saying this in a jealous way, but after a while I felt a little confused why exactly a fourteen year old girl would have no deal with so much. I was thinking, "So you are allowing your daughter to travel the world by herself, when she isn't even allowed to..?" To me it would have made sense if she was sixteen or seventeen. I felt this more towards the end, because that is where a lot of the mind-boggling action happened, but I wasn't too fazed by it. I've met mature fourteen year olds. And I have met six foot one fourteen year olds.

I really enjoyed this book and would recommend for you to pick them up. They are super fun, there is also a witty comment or two in each chapter, and you will literally want to have your head in the story the entire time because it is so hooking and enjoyable. Sarah has a great eye for knowing what exactly will make her books so exciting, and it gives her books an age. Definitely go find this one after you have read Code Red Lipstick!
