This is a fun series so far, and better yet, I think they are new-reader friendly. There is enough background given during the narrative for new readers to feel comfortable jumping on at any point, but if you don't want to miss any of the melodramatic fun, start with book one.

I am a sap for over the top melodrama, and Georgetown Academy has that in spades. Everyone is having trouble dealing with living life under a microscope, where poor decisions and lapses in judgment have pa
Mary (BookHounds)

Let's start with Brinley since she is the mean girl with a heart. The story picks right up where the first one ended and Brinley is quickly loosing control of her dark, deep secret. I am not going to divulge that since it would ruin the plot. She does try to help her bestie, Ellie, track down who leaked a picture of her with her mother's worst enemy's son. The backstory to that relationship will have you reeling. Evan, the good girl is trying really hard to get in good with su

This book is grittier. We have betrayal, drugs, new friendships, lost friendships, family drama, more politics, a party, ending on a cliffhanger. I think Taryn is becoming my favorite character. She seems to be staying truest to herself although sometimes by luck. Ellie I can't decide what I think. Brinley is too political. Evan keeps hurting herself and others. Each of them are very like kids I knew in school. I probably would have hung out with Evan as I was a bit of a wallflower/loser in scho ...more

My Thoughts:

The Cover: The cover to Book 2 was similar to Book 1. Only it's daytime, the Lincoln Memorial is used and we see a white dress, not red. Can't decide which cover I like the best, but the way these books are going, the covers are really starting to fit.

The Plot: Wow, things are really starting to heat up at Georgetown Academy! The plot really does get better and better. I was a bit worried going into Book 2 as Book 1 took so long to really get going, but without a doubt, I am hooked

NOTE: This review is for Season One, a collection of the first four titles in the Georgetown Academy series. This review is for all four titles, but does not contain spoilers and each title has been given appropriate star rating on it's own merits.

Digital ARC provided by publisher for honest and thoughtful review.

From the start, I loved the idea of these books and jumped at the chance to review them - with their backdrop of Washington DC politics (I'm a political junkie and I love vacationing

Ellie Walker, the daughter of a single mom and senator, is the subject of media scrutiny after a photo of her kissing the son of her political arch nemesis makes the rounds. Even though she has feelings for Gabe, she can't be with him because of what his father did to her mother's marriage and career several years earlier. Ellie has also just been dumped by her boyfriend of two years, Hunter, and she has little hope he'll accept her apologies and take her back.

There is something about Georgetown Academy that is immersive. When I’m in the fast paced world of politics and high school with Ellie, Taryn, Brinley and Evan, nothing else matters out in “real life.” I consumed this book in record time, and who could blame me? We have relationship drama, potential romance, secrets, alliances, politics, parental problems, forbidden loves, and frenemies. There’s something for everyone!

Georgetown Academy: Book Two by Jessica Koosed Etting and Alyssa Embree Schwartz picks up just a few minutes after Book One ends. With the new bombshell dropped into Ellie's lap, or more precisely onto her phone, the world of GA is shifting for all of the characters. Love, loyalty, friendship. They're all on the line in the second book of this amazingly addictive series.

Everything's starting to develop more in this second book. The relationships, the drama, and the characters. You can feel the n

I can honestly say this series just keeps getting better and better. The further I read, the more entangled I became in Ellie, Brinley, Evan and Taryn’s lives. These are four spectacular young women who each with their own complex personalities bring intrigue and excitement to a gripping story with heaps of twists and surprises.

The story picks up exactly where it left off in the previous book. New alliances are formed, secrets are spilled, and a couple of interesting discoveries change the cours

I really enjoyed reading this sequel. I thought Georgetown Academy Book 1 was very good but in my opinion Book 2 is even better.

Book 2 starts immediately at the point Book 1 ended, leaving Ellie to deal with an extremely “sticky” situation. In fact, all four main characters (Ellie, Brinley, Evan and Taryn) are involved in more scandal, drama and love triangles I ever thought possible. Ellie needs to decide between two boys (Hunter and Gabe), Brinley is battling with her pill addiction, Evan hel

Wow...after the dramatic ending of the first book I should have been expecting the drama in this one...but it was even more intense than I expected!!!

This one was full of scandal, and showed the behind-the-scenes aspects of politics where various stories are leaked to the press...either by political opponents or by individuals themselves to save face. I'll admit, that little dirty secret aspect was really interesting and was one of my favourite parts. I liked seeing how different individuals spu
I took the plunge into teen angst on steroids with Georgetown Academy: Book One and it ended with a cliff hanger to die for! Enter book two-aptly named: Georgetown Academy: Book Two, picking up immediately for poor Ellie, caught in a photo gone viral of her passionately kissing Gabe. Oops, her boyfriend’s name is Hunter, so instantly we have a national scandal! Why? Gabe is the son of Ellie’s mother’s worst nightmare in the political arena and it could cost her a coveted position of power, not t ...more

this series does keep getting better and better. i still love the fact that i get to choose my own adventure..(yes, i am a nerd)

in this book, Elle's scandal is more than what she thought was going to happen with Gabe. Her mother totally stopped talking to her and her boyfriend of two years, hunter also called it quits. She has to spend the rest of the week trying to do damage control at the school. Everyone stopped talking to

Originally posted on Book Reviews:

It is really interesting how Georgetown Academy doesn't have any clubs or anything because if they did the students club choice could be used against them in the future ( for example say your involved with animal activists club and then you become a senator and don't care about animal's). That would certainty hurt your voters if they discovered that you weren't pro animal or something like that. Also at Georgetown Academy

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I must admit this series has not been my favorite. I should know better than to read books about politics. But I did enjoy book two a little more than book one, and I think that certain readers would enjoy this series much more than I am. It is just not my style.

I still do not like any of the characters. They all just seem so fake to me. I had nothing like this in high school. None of the drama, none of the trying

The second Georgetown Academy is very similar to the first. There are lies, backstabbing, and politics. But in this installment Ellie is left reeling after what happened at the end of book one.

Ellie's scandal is the main issue that is present in the book. I liked seeing ho different people manipulated the situation, and I have to say I was surprised to find out who took the picture. The way Brinley's situation screamed Gossip Girl to me. So if you are a fan of that type of drama this is the se

This series is great if you're looking for a quick, light read. There aren't any annoying characters in my opinion, and I like how you can choose to 'follow' the stories of different girls. Oh, and I love how it's somewhat politically oriented since politics is kinda my thing haha. :)

These books are fun reads.
Book two picks up right where book one left off. Love, scandal, hatred, politics, everything you expect from the world of Washington D.C. fills these books.
Each character is unique and has a distinctive voice. Ellie is my favorite, but I do enjoy the other points of view. One of the hardest things about writing in multiple POV is keeping the voices fresh and distinct. These books don’t have that issue.
The plot is fast paced and intertwining. Even though it doesn’t ap

Georgetown Academy Book Two is the second book in this teenage drama series. I was not impressed with the first book but I stuck with this series and I am so glad that I did. The second book redeemed this series for me.

Fluff read. The writing's not fantastic, nor are the characters amazing, but it's okay for a read where you want your brain to check out. But, I did get invested in the potential of Taryn and Brooks.
