Book Review: Queen of the Clueless

Queen of the Clueless (Interim Goddess of Love) (Volume 2) - Mina V. Esguerra

Dear Miss Mina,

First and foremost, thank you for this. Queen of the Clueless was a breather after working my ass out finishing 7 novels in 10 days. This was an easy read with a lot of humor that the wrinkles I got during the past days were instantly erased. I liked the first book but I fell in love with this one what with the toe curling scenes and awkward moments you've thrown my way.

I am very grateful that you answered a lot of my questions and granted some of my wishes. I loved that Hannah's project in this book was Sol. That made things more complicated than it is. God knows how I love complications. And oh my golly. You literally creeped me out with Neil Prado. It's like he was endowed with a dark version of Venus' charmspeak prowess which seriously repulsed me. Way to go.

Speaking of Sol, I was really hoping that she would at least end up with Diego Simon ya know? Diego is perhaps my most favourite character in the IGOL series. He had the loudest voice of all with his recklessness, impulsiveness and plain bad boy attitude. And I couldn't help fangirling about him in this book. Can you please make another novella featuring Diego Simon and his would be love interest? Pretty please because I want to read more of him.

Although I am crazy about Diego, it doesn't mean that I didn't notice Robbie. He is such a pleasant character and I adore his crazy thoughts. Dammit! They were so delectably outrageous that it was difficult for me to tell him that Hannah already belongs to Quin. Nonetheless, I still want a happy ending for him in the last book. So you better give him that, Miss.

I appreciated that you put more substance into this book as compared to the other one. You expanded the Filipino mythos here which is the main reason why I was glued to this series like a second skin. And the fact that you ensured that romance didn't eclipse the overall story made me a happy camper.

Really, the only thing that made my heart sink while reading this book is there's a lot of Quin but there's so little of him. If you know what I mean.

All in all, this is an excellent second book and my favourite as of now. I even welcomed the cliffhangery ending which I deemed is necessary to gear up the stage in book 3. But before I'm gonna end this letter, remember my other unmet demands. And don't forget about Diego's story. Look into that please.

Until next time.
