“Keys to the Repository” Melissa de la Cruz

“Blue Bloods,” Book #4.5. Hyperion. 2010. 227 pp.

KeysToTheRepositoryThis was the first “place holder” book in the series, with a “behind-the-scenes” look at various aspects of Blue Blood society. De la Cruz uses Repository files to give the back story behind each of the main characters in the previously released books, while including a few “untold” stories straight from the mouths of Jack, Kingsley, Dillon and Schuyler. It ends with a “Glossary” of important Blue Blood terms and people.

“Keys to the Repository” is dry and not very interesting, so there’s no need to interrupt your reading of the regular series with it. I’m sorry I didn’t skip it and go right to book #7 in the series.

As a School Librarian, I was Co-Chair of REFORMA's (The National Association to Promote Library Services to the Latinos and Spanish Speaking) CAYASC (Children & Young Adult Services Committee) for 2 yrs. As Co-Chair, I was in charge of all things YA. I have been a member of YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) for many years, and have worked as a school librarian for many years. When I'm not blogging, I like to read, run, race and sing - not necessarily in that order. My blog reviews books I enjoyed (or didn't enjoy), which leaves you to ask yourself "Should I Read it or Not?"
