Are you looking for your next Young Adult Contemporary read? Why don’t you grab your Kindle and read Georgetown Academy by Alyssa Embree Schwartz & Jessica Koosed Etting. Georgetown Academy has been hailed by Gossip Girl producer, Josh Schwartz, as “Smart, sexy and insanely addictive.”
Georgetown Academy, Season One follows the story of Ellie Walker, the DC Sweetheart, Brinley Madison, the DC Princess, Evan Hartnett, the goody two shoes & Taryn Reyes, the new girl in town. They all atten
The Cover: True to Georgetown Academy standards, yet again a shapely pair of legs in front of yet another prominant US landmark, this time the Washington Monument and our beauty is wearing black and boots. I mean, makes sense if it is winter and you are going away on a ski vaca!
The Plot: Wow, this was my fav so far! The drama just keeps getting more and more intense. The plot continues to be awesome, full of surprises, with lots of drama and lots of romance, I tell you. Sometimes th ...more
Oh, my! The drama explodes in Georgetown Academy Book 3! This was a fun installment of the series, as most of the action takes place at a ski resort in Vermont. The major players all think that they are going to get a break from the rigors of DC, but guess again, guys! The microscope has followed you all to the slopes, and many of you are going to have the worst vacation ever!
It must be nice to attend a fancy private sch ...more
I also question how the authors are characterizing Brinley...she does some things I would not have expected, and frankly don't find be ...more
It’s Inaugeration Day and what better way to celebrate than with some fictional political drama. I don’t know about you but the fictional kind is much more palatable to me than the real life political drama these days. That being said, Georgetown Academy Book Three JUST came out on January 15th and this time, we’re hitting the slopes. A few weeks have lapsed since the end of Book Two and the Follow the Stars event and the ...more
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT
***spoilers if you haven't read the first two ***
This series just keeps getting better and better! The crew is headed for skiing in Vermont and a break from the media coverage that has worn down even the most hardcore Washington resident that crave that spotlight. Brinley and her parents have circumvented a disaster by going public with her drug abuse and cleaned her up in rapid time. Now with a therapist in her corner, she gains strength to break away from the stra ...more
By the third book the characters have really come to life and I feel like they blossomed in this third book. They were standing up for themselves and making slightly better choices not only for them but about their friends. I also liked the introduction of some new characters i ...more
Etting and Schwartz do an amazing job building completely believable characters and settings. I would say that havi ...more

The frosty chill that’s settled over Georgetown Academy isn’t just from the winter weather—growing up in the D.C. fishbowl isn’t for everyone, but a break from the Beltway might just restore some sanity.
Ellie Walker’s suffered through a lifetime of scandal in a few short weeks, and now must watch her true love fall for someone else. But will a dose of ...more
Whereas I read Books 1 and 2 straight after each other, I read a couple of different books in between Books 2 and 3. I was slightly worried that I might not remember the storyline as well, but the authors are ...more
I've been remiss in not reviewing this earlier, but with book four set to be published tomorrow, along with a Season One four book set to be made available, it's time to write this review. If you're not familiar with the series, Georgetown Academy follows the lives of students at an elite high school in Washington, D.C. where students of those involved in Washington politics attend classes. Told from multiple perspectives, the books provide a fascinating look at how the politics of h ...more
The four main girls are moving on with their lives. Ellie has met Weston and is trying to move on from Hunter and forget Gabe. Brinley has recovered from her collapse at Follow the Stars, but can she handle the pressure that led her to drugs in the first place? Tary ...more

I don’t like Taryn and how much she became lost in this relationship with Gabe, because came on can’t she see that it’s clear he likes Ellie and she’s just a fling, but Brooke that actually likes her it’ ...more

The Students of GA are at it again in this installment and are on a retreat in Vermont trying to leave the drama in D.C. fortunately for readers the drama a ...more
Book Three continues with all the drama except now it is mostly on the school ski trip. There is a new character, Weston, brought in and at first I thought Yay! But then as the story progressed it was a definite Nay! None of the characters really appeal to me, but I thought maybe for Brooks.
This series has an extreme amount of love triangles, but some of them have finally started to solve. There is also oodles of gossip and politics, whi ...more
One of the reasons I bought a Kindle was so I could read these books after all the hype they were given, and I was not let down.
I read books one and two straight after each other and practically counted down the days until Book 3 was released and as soon as it was I couldn't put it down.
I would really recommend this series.
*I received a free copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for this review.
