Book Review: Lucky Thirteen (Replica #11)


Happy Friday Bookworms!

Man, this week has been cuh-raaa-zy! Grad school readings are taking up a ton of my time, and I’m managing to read leisurely and write everyday, but more of a bare minimum. Also, I’m having a housewarming this weekend with my boyfriend! I’m definitely going to need a vacation soon.

Anywho, I managed to finish another book!

This time I read Lucky Thirteen (Replica #11) by Marilyn Kaye

I really enjoyed the last book in this series, so I was crossing my fingers and toes that this one would be a repeat. On to the review!

She runs with a wild crowd whose motto is Good Times Now! She convinces Amy to hang loose and have fun. Drawn by Aly’s free spirit, Amy rejects her genetic roots. But Aly’s carefree ways come at a high cost. . . .

The Review

I was super thrilled with this book!

This time in Amy’s crazy life she’s at the carnival with Tasha and Eric when she spots another clone. Wanting to know what she’s like, Amy goes undercover to observe her life and learns there is a thirteenth clone. Unlike the others she is completely normal in ability, but when Amy’s relationship with her friends get rocky she can’t resist the urge to become her friend and get a taste of a normal life without abilities.

This book really surprised me.

Amy is going through a hard time with her friends using her for her abilities. It wasn’t hard to sympathize with her since her friends really are taking her for granted in certain situations. To be frank, I actually think a little less of Eric and Tasha from the events of this novel. There wasn’t a true feeling of remorse from them for their actions in my opinion, but that’s probably my only nitpick because everything else was so stellar.

The writing as always was super easy to read and it was hard to put down. The plot followed a more normal kind of storyline compared to the other books in the series, but the way it was done was handled expertly and there’s still plenty of action throughout to keep you interested. This novel also had heart, especially in the interactions between Amy and Aly, and it pulled at my heartstrings in spots.

I’m really pleased with this one, and I can’t wait to continue Amy’s journey!



That’s A Wrap!

Well that’s it for this book review. I hope you enjoyed it!
