Finding It (Losing It #3)
by Cora Carmack
Kelsey Summers is looking for love in all the wrong places.
Spending a few months travelling around Europe – with no parents, no responsibilities and a no limit credit card – Kelsey’s having the time of her life.
But when she completely embarrasses herself in front of the hottest guy she’s ever seen, she soon realises there’s more to life than the next party.
What she doesn’t realise is that although she’s on a journey to find herself, she will end up finding The One…
As soon as I heard the UK version of this book was released, I decided I had to buy it, but tried to convince myself to wait a few days before I bought. But then I caught a cold and decided I had to read this book now, so I bought it and started reading it right afterwards.
While I did enjoy Finding It, I still like Losing It the best of this series so far. Finding it is more dark and with less humor and more drinking. I really liked some parts and didn’t like other parts. I really like Cora her writing style and despite me not liking certain parts this book still had that keep-reading-feel.
Keeping It focusses on Kelsey one of Bliss her friends in Losing It, she now has her own story. I really liked the setting of traveling through Europe (I live in Europe myself and there are not enough books that take place there). Unfortunately I recently read a 5 stars book for me where the main character also travels through Europe and I kept comparing the two, which made this book a bit less enjoyable for me, because I enjoyed the other book more. Also I think Finding It starts off a bit slow, Kelsey is traveling around Europe, but in the first 1/3 of the book she is in Budapest. And there is a lot of drinking involved and I still don’t get the idea of drinking all your problems away so I couldn’t really relate.
I liked Kelsey as a character, but she just wasn’t Bliss. I also liked Hunt, but I just felt like there was something missing in both characters for me to really connect with them. Also I think they both kept way too many secrets from each other and they never explained themselves and sometimes it just felt like they missed some depth, something more. Also there are some scenes at the end where I just wanted to shake both of them for how they acted. I also wondered why Kelsey kept up with Hunt for so long, while he kept rejecting her at first. I did like the ending. although I do think it came too soon and left some issues unresolved.
To conclude: I really enjoyed Finding It, but not as much as Losing It. I kept comparing this book to earlier books in this series and to another book I recenlty read about a girl travling through Europe, which made it a little bit less enjoyable. I also had some trouble connecting with the main characters. While I really enjoyed Finding It, it just was missing something. Nevertheless it did had that keep-reading-feel.
