2.5

I came into this book so excited and hyped up. When I finished Blacklist I was so pumped for the Next book. Blacklist was intriguing and full of twists and turns. This book? Not so much.

At the end of this book I was just like "eh." I felt like the other two books were much better. (lol i just checked my review and I basically said the same thing for the last one. oops.) The person behind everything was such a disappointment. When the big reveal happened, I was just really disappointed. There

Club promoters Layla, Aster, and Tommy never imagined that entering the Unrivaled competition would land them in the middle of a celebrity murder investigation, but sometimes fate can be as nasty as the anonymous comments on a Hollywood gossip blog.

Infamous is the final book in the Young Adult Beautiful Idols trilogy.

This is a continuing story, so you must read all the books in order.

This series is about Layla, Aster, Tommy, Ryan and Madison.

This book had a definite Pretty Little Liars feel to it as someone was leaving mysterious notes and messages.

There was a big mystery throughout all of the books about what happened to Madison. This mystery was finally solved. And we finally found out the guilty party.

The last part of the book was the

There’s no shortage of suspense, glitz, or scandal in the gripping conclusion to #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël’s Beautiful Idols trilogy.

Layla Harrison never imagined she’d see the inside of a jail cell, but sometimes fate can be as nasty as a commenter on her celebrity gossip blog. Luckily, she wasn’t alone—fellow promoters Aster Amirpour and Tommy Phillips were also detained when Hollywood It Girl Madison Brooks’s dead body turned up at an Unrivaled nightclub.

Pretty good series finale! Not quite as captivating as the other books and I’m probably rounding up because of how much I enjoyed the series overall? It was one I thought about a lot in between books and highly anticipated each release, even if they never blew me away. I predicted bits of the ending for sure (whodunnit) but the reasons were a good twist. (Probably should have guessed though...) I like her writing style; super easy (I mean that in a good way!) and addicting.

A really great ending to the series! Madison's past is finally revealed, and I love how all the characters are forced to work together even as their blackmailer tries to separate them. As for the identity of that individual... I definitely wasn't expecting the twist there! I think Madison got off a bit too easy for my taste, surely there'd be repercussions but hey I get the desire for happy endings. It was cool that the focus expanded from the main characters to Mateo, Heather, Trina, Ira and Ja ...more

All along I thought it was him the culprit. But the true suspect was someone I never thought they would.

Overall the series was enjoyable. I was so curious I finished the series in less than two weeks.

A little cheesy and immature. I could so see this being a CW show. And I don't like CW shows. I enjoyed the Evermore series when I was younger, so I didnt hesitate to buy this entire series. But I think this was my last Alyson Noel novel. I'm just not as into her as I used to be.

I am kinda disappointed with this last book. I feel like the author build up all this tension but released in a terrible way. The villain was very predictable and cliche. It just didn't do it for me

LIVE LIKE YOU WON'T BE FORGOTTEN.
Reading this book was quite the journey. I originally read the first book in this series, "Unrivaled", the year it came out. I was super excited to read it and it did not disappoint. Although I bought the second book, "Blacklisted", the following year, for some reason I waited until last year to read it and it also was very good. I had fully planned on reading the sequel and the third book back-to-back, but when I picked up the third and final book, that plan wa

2.5 Stars, but rounding up for reasons that I will be discussing.

And so I have come to the end of the BEAUTIFUL IDOLS Series, a series I started because the first book, UNRIVALED sounded like some good sudsy fun. Because every once in awhile you need a wholly unrealistic book about teenagers in L.A. who are somehow hired to be club promoters for clubs that they couldn't even get into due to age restrictions. I had initially jumped in because I had liked the Lauren Conrad books about Madison Park

A WORTHY SUCCESSOR

What an ending! To be honest, "Blacklist" had really discouraged me, but fortunately its successor reconfirmed the good opinion that "Unrivaled" had given me.
I usually wait for sequels to be translated into Italian, but Alyson Noël intrigued me from the start, I had to know what was going to happen. I couldn't put it down and, although I discovered I had guessed the culprit since the second book, the last scenes gave me chills and left me spechless, also because the motive behi

Instead of calling this the Beautiful Idols series I should just call it Pretty Little Liars: Celebrity Edition. I mean, sheesh. This book series went from intriguing to boring, to almost a copycat real fast. I mean, seriously, look at this: you have Layla, Aster, and Tommy three people who have become friends thanks to a competition over the summer promoted to change their lives. Their lives have changed but at a really hi

It was pretty great, but can we talk about that endinggg!!! It was such an intense ending, even though the Heather reveal was a little predictable. In terms of the entire Beautiful Idols series, I like Unrivalled the best, then Infamous, then Blacklist. Blacklist kinda just connected the other two.

Perfect Poolside trash, the final installment of this series from Alyson Noel does a decent though far fetched job of wrapping up the series with a bang. Nothing new and earth shattering here, just four amoral teens trying to extricate themselves from a messy reality TV show, but fun mind candy nonetheless!

That's all folks!😢

This book was an amazing culmination of epic story telling. There were times I slowed my reading down because I didn't want it to end. Definitely a good read!

This book really had me guessing. I kept thinking I knew who the kidnapper was and then boom I was thrown for a loop. Definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. Couldn't put it down!

This book wraps up the mystery that began in the first two books quite nicely. I would say this is one that you cannot read as a stand-alone book. I'd recommend this series be read all together, but I do recommend it. There were not as many issues in this book surrounding the unrealistic treatment and behavior of teens, or maybe I was just used to it by this book. I liked the ending, I didn't see it coming at all.

Overall, four stars for this one. Give the series a shot if you like YA and/or mys
