Author: Cecily von Ziegesar
Series: Gossip Girl #10
Rating: 2.5 / 5 stars
Nothing had changed and yet everything had. That thought made her unexpectedly sad.
Yet again, repetition strikes this muddled series (Gossip Girl even admits it in the quote above). While this series has never been spectacular, it was at least interesting in the beginning to catch a glimpse at how the 1% live. Now, though, we can’t seem to get past old plot lines. These characters never really grow or develop, making my reviews redundant.
This novel features:
- Vanessa going through three? (I honestly lost count) different jobs in as many months
- Dan and Vanessa awkwardness. Again. Though one new little tidbit was Dan’s literary orgy, although this entire plot line felt forced (even Dan doesn’t understand it)
- More drama, drama, drama with Serena, Blair, and Nate (I’m so sick of this love triangle). Once again, Serena proves to be the worst best friend in the world, and Nate proves to be a pothead.
That’s pretty much all that happens in this book. Oh, and Serena hooks up with a guy she’s already dumped. See the repetition? It’s still a readable quick skimmer, but the life has definitely left this series.
