Sisterhood Everlasting

Sisterhood Everlasting

10 years later the sisterhood is all grown up navigating new problems.

When I was in junior high or high school I read all the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books. I recently reread them and discovered that this is a fifth book that I never read. It honestly blew my mind. I was seriously completely shocked and I asked everybody if they had known about this mysterious fifth book and nobody was sure. So I let it be and began reading the fifth book obviously after I finished reading the first four. This fifth book seriously gave me all the feels. If you are reading my articles regularly, you will have seen that I had posted recently about what it’s been like to reread all these books and I told you to stay tuned for another post. Well here it is, it is about all the feels I experienced reading Sisterhood Everlasting.

**Warning spoilers ahead**

1.First I was excited to see how everyone turned out and what their careers ended up being.

This book was set ten years after the forth book ended, therefore all four girls where 29 turning 30 and set in careers or specifics lives. Lena of course was an artist and an art teacher. Carmen, to everyone’s surprise was an actress. I actually found this to be really awesome because of that last book. Bridget was a temp who didn’t want to settle down in one place but instead keep moving. Tibby, moved to Australia with Brian and we honestly don’t know much about her life. We know that prior to moving to Australia she was writing scripts and doing her movie thing. Honestly, Tibby was the biggest surprise of all. I will get more into that later.

2. I was livid that the girls hadn’t seen or talked to Tibby much in two years since she moved to Australia.

Honestly, I was thinking how was Ann gonna play us this way and break of the Sisterhood. Seriously, I’m sorry not okay. The sisterhood had been together since birth and it’s not okay to take them away from each other. Also, cutting off almost all communication with Tibby like not okay, the girls wouldn’t do that.

3.Then Tibby finally reaching out and sending the girls for a reunion in Greece.

Now that is what I am talking about. Way to go Ann! Recreating their trip to Greece a place that they were pulled back together again because of the pants, now that’s how you do it. I was so excited, and anxious to see what was going to happen. To see what made Tibby stop communicating and pulled her so far away from the girls.


I was so close to being done. I couldn’t believe that she killed off a sister. That she would make it look like a suicide. She ripped those girls apart, so far apart for the entire book all because of the death of one of them. I understand how all the girls went through those emotions but pulling them apart from each other when they really needed each other. So not cool. What made me most mad was the fact that she didn’t even get to see the girls again she didn’t get to explain anything so they were all left confused.

5.Tibby having a baby.

Of she named the baby Baily I don’t think we could have had it any other way, especially because Baily truly brought Brian and Tibby together. However, we need to talk about the fact that Tibby had kept Baily from the girls. She was 20 months old when Bridget finally find out about her. Tibby wouldn’t have told them. AND the fact that we all thought she committed suicide and left her sweet girl alone.

6.All them relationships.

I was honestly surprised that Bridget and Eric where still together but Lena and Kostos were not. Tibby and Brian was a given. I don’t want you to think that I was unhappy about Eric and Bridget I truly think they are good together but I was surprised that they were together over Lena and Kostos. I always thought someday would come. Well, I didn’t lose hope because TIbby worked her magic and Lena and Kostos do end up together in the end. Which, are we at all surprised? I wasn’t. With the relationships I was sad that Carmen ended up alone and everyone else ended up with someone. I mean yeah they had each other, well without Tibby. And without Tibby that left Brian alone but out of the sisterhood, why is Carmen the only one alone?

7.Bridget being pregnant and Baily being what makes her decide to have the baby.

Bridget’s story line totally pissed me off. Her traveling and leaving Eric I was over it. Then she found out she was pregnant and I felt better. She wanted to have an abortion but she went to Australia and discovered Baily and changed her mind. She realized how much she wanted to be a mom and raise this baby with Eric.

8.Tibby, her letters, and her daughter brought the sisterhood back together.

Let me start by explaining that Tibby didn’t commit suicide. She really did drown. She had Huntington Disease and she was going to tell the girls in Greece but she was weaker than she thought and drowns when she was swimming in the ocean. Tibby wrote letters which was why the girls thought she committed suicide because they didn’t get to see Tibby in Greece because she died before they all got there. In the letters TIbby told them all to go to one location and that brought them all back together.

This book was entirely different from the other four books. There was deeper sadness and hurt in this book than in the others. It was still an incredibly well written book that I read in two days. It kept me absolutely on my toes and I loved every minute of it. Even when I was incredibly mad about what was happening.

10 Ways To Be The Girl Every Guy Wants

A comprehensive do-it-yourself guide to being the girl every guy wants.

1. Smile all the time.

Guys want to be with girls who are always happy. Men get severely uncomfortable when all the women around them are not Cheshire cat level elated all the fucking time. Why are you mad? Why do you look so pissed? Are you defective? Autopilot your brain to borderline creepy giddiness before men get the idea that you might actually be capable of a full range of human emotion.

2. Be smart.

Men want women to be smart, but never smarter than them. Don’t know or say anything too much about anything specifically – except sports.

3. Eat like a man, look like a lady.

How many burgers can you fit in your mouth at once? Better, even, how many hotdogs? Have the appetite of a grizzly bear, but eat like a cute tiny rabbit, or Kate Upton faking an orgasm. Oh, and never, ever get above a size 4.

4. Play video games.

No guy can resist a girl who loves to play video games (in her underwear). Fifa, 2K, Smash, Kart – know them all. If you can’t at least beat his worst friend at his favorite game, you’re not a keeper.

5. Love beer.

If you can’t throw ‘em back like one of the guys, you’re not wifey. Yeah, that Norwegian IPA no one's ever fucking heard of? You got it. Bud Light? Sure. Fat Tire? You love that shit. Feel free to let out that beer burp while you’re at it, but the burp you’d imagine a Japanese dwarf squirrel would let out after eating rainbows. Oh, and don’t forget, size 4.

6. Be a freak, but also a nun.

We all know that lyric (thank you, Ludacris, so much). Hit those yoga poses hard because he wants you to bust that shit out like you’ve done it before. But you haven’t … right? Have you?!

7. Keep him on his toes.

No man wants a woman who is predictable and boring. Challenge him. Keep him intrigued. Drop an F bomb every now and then. Learn a foreign language in your spare time so that you might give the illusion of being exotic in bed (Slavic languages sound super sexy). Induce yourself into an epileptic seizure. Whatever it takes to keep it interesting.

8. Have quirks.

Ah, quirks. The things that make people unique. The things that make people, people. You must have at least three of these but no more than five. Think relatable Stepford Wife.

9. Be hot.

This is potentially the most important, and luckily I don’t need to tell you how this works. Look at anything. Anywhere. That ever existed.

10. Never, ever get mad.

The worst thing you can do as a woman is challenge a man’s authority. Don’t talk back. Don’t think. Don’t have expectations. Sit. Roll over. Hold the bark.
