Review | Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes by Karin Slaughter (Pretty Girls #0.5)

“The only reason my daughter has not come home is because someone is keeping her.” Keeping her.” 2/5 stars!

Attention! This book contains: bars, young girls, and… not much more.

A missing girl in the news reminds Julia Carroll of herself: nineteen, beautiful, blonde hair, blue eyes.

Julia begins to dig deeper and plans an article for her college paper. She becomes gradually more obsessed with the case, never imagining how close she herself is to danger.

Includes an extract from Karin Slaughter’s gripping new novel, Pretty Girls.

What was even the point of this novella? I picked this up right after finishing “Pretty Girls”, and I was expecting to get Julia’s perspective on the night she went missing.

And I guess that’s what you get but… nothing actually happens. There’s a lot of her going to class and thinking about the girls that were missing… and that’s it.

Sure, I understand this is supposed to be a short novella, but I still thought we would get at least something interesting from it. When the story finally got interesting… It ended. So again: what was even the point of this short book?

The only thing I found interesting is how she was a little different from what her sisters described her in the main story. Other than that, it was a waste of time.
