Anna Percy a hérité de sa mère sa blondeur nordique, ses traits aristocratiques, et son éducation sans faille. De sacrés atouts, lorsque l'on appartient, comme elle, à l'élite new-yorkaise, et que l'on cherche à faire un beau mariage - de raison...
Seulement Anna s'ennuie à périr dans cet environnement préservé, et rêve d'aventures exotiques et débridées, comme celles que l

This is an intriguing novel about a teenage girl named Anna Percy. Anna is a straight A student and almost to good at everything. Her best friend Cynthia or Cyn however is the complete opposite. Cyn is wild, brave, and likes her spotlight but Anna is more of a subtle humble girl. Though Anna doesn't mind being a goody two shoes, she is jealous of Cyn and desperately wants to be like her. This novel is about how Anna travels to L.A. to do an internship and bond with her dad for a while. This does ...more

Urgh. I actually picked this book up a really long time ago from Goodwill. Most of the times I never find anything I like but this once I decided what the heck? So let me start by saying this isn't the type of book that I usually read. I usually read books about characters who I feel I can relate to. It was really hard for me to get through, I started it around November and didn't finish until today. Well, here we go.

How can I sum this book

Dear Diary,
So I met this boy named Ben on the plane to L.A. He had it all from the looks, brains, ugh! just everything. I couldn’t wait any longer. I took him to the bathroom and we did what we had to do. The sex was great! I was feeling him and I could tell he was feelig me too. We got off the plane in L.A. , exchanged numbers, and he even invited me to the famous Jackson Sharpe’s wedding! So much happened today. I’m ready to start a new life here . It’s L.A. baby no regrets and nothing can st

This book is a flying turd.

description

This book is highly praised by other famous books (The Clique, etc.). But why?

This book is about a couple of rich sluts who made me wants to jab my eyes out girls who are all falling for the same guy.

Oh, Anna. Where do I start? She's on a plane, when she is sitting next to a sleazebag who tries to fuck her. Some random dude 'Saves The Day' and tries to fuck her himself in the bathroom. They get called out by the attendent and are red-faced. She sh

When I was reading it, it was like Gossip Girl meets 90210 in a fresh and unique way. Anna Percy is true Upper East Side material, and being thrust into the world of Beverly Hills is like a complete culture shock for her. Her main reason for leaving the comfort of the Upper East Side for the jungle that is Beverly Hills was one that would change her life forever. One thing that everyone needs to know, no matter where you life, is that there are mean girls everywhere. And they usually come in thr ...more

Oh dear god, here it goes.

So awhile ago I decided to read a lot of chick lit. A. LOT. And in my adventures into series about rich kids who whine about their privileged lives and fancy cars and daddy issues, well, this book turned up.
And, I'm sad to say, I got completely obsessed.

I know, I know. It's terrible. But let me explain why .

I thought The A-List by Zoey Dean was an amazing book. It has a great message that comes with it, the whole book is about this girl Anna who lives in New York but is moving in with her father that lives in Beverley Hills. Her whole life she's been known as the innocent one and the girl who doesn't have any fun and never lets loose so on this trip she's planned to forget about every problem and start the new life of Ana Percy.On her trip over there on the plane she meets a guy named Ben Birnbaum ...more

A lot of my friend's had read this book and recommended it to me. The beginning of the book was a bit too slow for my liking, but the plot was pretty interesting. The way how the first book of the series ended, it was a major cliff hanger and I cannot wait to start reading the second book of the series.
I would have to say my favorite character was probably the driver of Anna's Father, he was a very chill guy who did basically everything for Anna which is why he started liking her, but Anna was

How I Came To Read This Book: I think I snagged it after it being touted as the next Gossip Girl.

The Plot: Anna is your typical WASP-y East Coast upper cruster, a slightly less sophisticated, naive version of her GG compatriots. As her senior year comes to close (in just six short months) she opts to leave her cushy life behind for an equally cushy life in LA to live with her estranged father in his mega mansion. Anna is quickly thrust into the LA scene including a romantic tryst with a fellow p

I've actually read this and a few of the others in the series before, but it's been years. I thought it might make good summer reading, especially now that I own most of them or can easily find them. The A-List isn't what I would consider a "great" read, but it was rather enjoyable, like watching a soap opera.

The main character, Anna, is likable, as is Adam and Django. I also strangely enjoyed Sam and Dee as characters, even though they are part of the "mean girl" trio. I like how the characters

I like the plot of this book. Anna Percy is a good girl, tired of her perfect grades and wants a change. She moves out of New York to live with her hard working father in LA. while she is on the plane she meets a boy, Ben, and this is when she starts her changes. Ben invites Anna to a wedding. this is the famous Grammy Award winning Jonathan Sharpe's Wedding. His daughter, Sam, has a crush on Ben and is expecting him to come to the wedding without a date. Sam was once very chubby and had a hard ...more

The A-List is about a girl named Anna Percy. Anna is the type of person who is basically great at everything she does. Anna has been in her best friends shadow for the past thirteen years. Anna soon becomes tired with her boring life. So she decides to jet off to LA to meet her dad and try to get a college internship. Instead she goes to an Oscar winner’s wedding, lounge at an after-hours back-lot party, and meet a guy named Ben, she just might love.
This genre is a Drama. The book’s weakness is

Well, I read the first in the series because these books are often Billed, and I was curious. The A-List is admittedly shallow, with consumerism overload. Versace, Hermes Kelly, and Burberry brand-name-dropping might be a quick way to communicate wealth, but it's not very good writing. Still, I was reminded of my thought after sampling Gossip Girl as well: that fantasy is broadly defined as another world, and for some this may consist of elves and unicorns, and for others, the lives of the super ...more

I picked the book up thinking that this would be a fun, light and fizzy read while I wished for warmer weather. Well, it at least made me content with the midwest's colder climate - it was a reminder that I am far away from the shallow and artificial world of the characters.

It was completely expected that the characters would be chiefly concerned with fashion, celebrities, and their love lives, but Zoey Dean gave the readers no reason to sympathize with any of the main characters in the novel. T

The author, Zoey Dean does not create Anna's dad as a realistic character. How can he be a serious investment banker one second and then go home smoke marijuana, and act/speak like a teenager? It's strange that Django, Anna's dad's chauffeur, is from Mississippi and yet he has spiked hair and was a famous world known piano player. Why did Anna tell her father about Ben if her father didn't care about her? I hate how Ben was constantly shocked that Anna was smart AND blonde! Grammar error: "To wa ...more

A friend gave this book to me and, like someone else said, it is "hackneyed, trashy, and just plain bad." I read the first chapter and my brain molded into a disgusting wad of slush. I hate reading about women pitting themselves against other women, especially for petty reasons. This cliche style of writing is always being used in the media and it's really irritating when there are so much more poignant things to write about. Don't even bother picking this up.
Rachael Quinn
The backlog that is my TBR is so immense that, at this point, reading a YA series that I wanted to read as it came out is like a throwback. There is something comforting about this, really. I may not have been a rich girl living in Beverly Hills but I graduated the year before this book was published and there are little things that made me feel like I was 17 again. I hate to compare but so far I think that I will like A-List better than Gossip Girl. It seems a little smarter and less shocking j ...more

My January book of the month was The A-List, which only took me a couple of days to read. I could not put this book down, but I also found a few problems with it as well. The plot is addictive though and I am sure to be borrowing more from Danielle (already scored the second book!). I am trying to read two books a month with two reviews on my blog a month as well. I want to go back to my roots for the New Year. I used to only do book reviews. I don't have as much free time as I used to, so I thi ...more

Shelves: easysummerreads
This is a great easy chickflick that i think that everyone should read. It is full of scandal and intrigue that keeps u hooked and wanting to read more. I recommend that you read it during the summer thought because i guarantee you that your not going to be able to put it down. Also, read the rest of the series which is equally as good or better!!!
Stephanie
ok, so i read this becuase my 8th grade girls are reading it. ew.

ew. ew. ew. ew. ew.

oh yeah, and ew. i so hope that my students don't think of these characters as role models. and if they do, i hope they pick up the subtle "don't do cocaine, it's bad" message.

oh wait, that message isn't in there. awesome.

boo, book, boo.
Veronica
Hackneyed, trashy, and just plain bad. I'm sorry, but this book just wasn't all that great. I realize this is supposed to be a type of "chit lit," which was one of the reasons I borrowed it, but it was just a lot worse than I thought it would be. There was a lot of swearing and sexual content, and the plot was quite terrible.
Aidan
I first read this book when I was in eighth grade and absolutely loved it. “The A-List” has everything in it that appeals to young teenage girls. Best friends, boys / romance, money, fashion, etc. This story first starts out with Anna on a plane flying to Los Angeles. She meets a boy who asks her to a big Hollywood party and she runs into an old family friend that she grew up with when she was little. Small world, right! I do have to say, this book and ones within the same genre, and definitely ...more

When I read this back when it was out, I enjoyed it a lot mainly because it was out during what I like to call the "trashy YA series" period which was also the time period Gossip Girl and The Clique was out. Now rereading it over 10 years later I see how awful it really is. The main characters are all one-dimensional and shallow and the celebrity and brand name dropping is just plain annoying and there are too many characters for any of them to be fully developed. The only reason I gave it two s ...more

EWWWWWWWW! DON'T EVER BOTHER READING THIS BOOK. IT WAS ALL ABOUT BAD STUFF. I COULDN'T MAKE IT PAST THE 1ST CHAPTER. THERE WAS A TON OF CUSSING TOO.
Rebecca
To be honest, I didn't realize this was part of a series until more than halfway through the book. That bummed me out because these teen drama novels can get so old really fast. I thought it was a one off novel that would resolve. I did like that Anna was standing up to these b*tches. So many times in these books, we see them from the point of view of someone that ends up getting walked all over, so this was a nice change. I almost want to read more to see how it turns out, but I'm not sure I wa ...more
