Once again, I am surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. No reason for that really, I just find it interesting that I have enjoyed ETS as much as I have.

Another strange, yet good story in the Emily the Strange world (see what I did there?? *nudges with elbow* Eh? Eh?). I found myself giggling out loud quite a lot with this book. Could be that there was more humorous content this time around or it could be that I’ve grown accustomed to Emily and how she navigates the world in her peculiar way. I want to say it’s the former, but I suspect it’s actually a combination of both. Regardless, I loved it.

Written in epistolary style again, we get to enjoy the candid journal entries of Emily as she deals with her latest scheme and subsequent mishap. As in the first book there are doodles, pictures, and such adorning the pages of the book that make reading it even more fun. I really like how well developed our protagonist’s (antagonist’s?) character is. She has very specific interests and proclivities and it makes her memorable and surprisingly, lovable. I am not a cat person myself, but I adore that Emily is. Her relationship with her cats is fun to read about, especially in this book (spoiler free, so I’m not saying why – but you can always contact me if you want to hear it from me). Although I found myself momentarily frustrated with the OtherMe situation, I have to admit, it certainly provided a sufficient amount of conflict to keep me wanting to see how the issue was resolved. I saw it coming, but I really liked the concept (magic system?) behind how Emily managed to duplicate herself – I wont say more in order to avoid spoiling it for anyone, but it was fun seeing how the two Emily’s moved through this story.

For a change of pace, an easy read, a fun read; I definitely recommend stepping into the world of Emily the Strange!

I dearly loved this novel! Seriously. It was the exact change of pace I needed and turned out to be way better than I had anticipated.

The whole book is written in an epistolary style were Emily relays events and thoughts to you through journal entries. In among those entries you get the added bonus of sketches, doodles, photos, etcetera and it makes for the most wonderful reading experience. The story line was interesting and engaging. I was afraid that the plot line would be shallow and lost due to a focus being placed on the desired concept of the book (doodles, peculiar and strange characteristics, angst, etcetera) and not the story within, but it wasn’t. There is a legitimate and entertaining story to be experienced within the doodled and quirky journal entries.

Although Emily is in fact strange and peculiar, as well as an angst-y troublemaker, she’s still a very likable character. I marvel at the dept you get from her character in this book. Epistolary style writing tends to make it hard for me to connect with the characters, but that was never an issue in this book. Her character is clear and understandable throughout. The other peripheral characters are also felt out and interesting, which just makes the whole of it that much better.

I almost didn’t give this book a full five stars because it didn’t “fit” in with my other five star reads, but then I asked myself “Why the hell not?!” I really enjoyed this book and dinging it a star because it didn’t “fit” the mold seemed not only like an oxymoron but incredibly stupid of me. It’s now one of my favorites (as pretty much all my 5 star reads are) and has a permanent home on my bookshelf.

I love the format of these books - it's a diary entry/illustrated/list style of writing that really makes me feel like I'm inside the extremely bizarre mind of Emily Strange. This falls into the unusual mystery category of The Mysterious Benedict Society and Kiki Strike, and I really enjoy all of them.
