I feel like the synopsis could have been condensed into a few short words: GOSSIP GIRL SEASON 7. Hell yeah! New York City, night clubs, drugs, drama, lies and characters from different spectrums of the social hierarchy? YES PLEASE. COME TO MAMA.
I apologize, lately, for all the short reviews. I just haven't had the time to sit down and write some really long reviews so today, instead of rambling on and on about how much I loved this book, I'm just going to express my love in the only way I know how to- with gifs! You ready?
Ahhh. Classic Blair Waldorf. We quite literally had many characters drinking (or smoking, rather) away their sorrows. If I had a nickle for every time someone in this book hid their problems instead of facing them, I would be as rich as Blair Waldorf. But I kind of loved it! These characters pushed aside their problems and that led to the build up of lies and deceit. We all know how great that plays in any book!
The burning romances! Let's just say some characters had trouble saying three words and eight letters.
Boy oh boy, there were a lot of one night stands.
Characters make mistakes that will haunt them forever.
Yes, there's a Lonely Boy and a Serena van der Woodsen dynamic! Don't you worry.
And perhaps... several losses of identity.
Don't worry, it's not a spoiler but someone does fall off a building O.O
