Now she is Briana Leigh Covington, a sixteen-year-old brunette entering for the first time at Atherton-Pryce Hall, more exclusive than the Easton Academy, her former boarding school. She has to make a fresh start and undergo new and disconcerting experiences firsthand: now she's the new girl, the outs ...more

A lot. I actually enjoyed this a lot. Would have gotten a four, if the storyline wasn't basically Billings 2.0, but I digress. Despite Ariana being a serial killer, I am enjoying this much more than I ever did Private. But Ariana has to be careful, lest Palmer ends up being Thomas Pearson 2.0
My Review: Oh how my love grows for Kate Brian! Only she could make me love a serial killer, (well if were not counting Dexter.) The plot was so different from the previous, yet just as amazing, this book has confirmed that this series shall be deemed an official favorite of mine.
When Hooked. Immediately. Surprisingly, the previous novel didn't end with that "Kate Brian cliff-hanger" I'm accustomed too. Having said that, I was still just as eager to read ...more

OK. So Ariana is still an unreliable character to have her pov shown, she is still a murderer in her mind thinking the number one solution is killing the other. When I star pinning for her, she's like "let's kill my problems off", it's pretty surreal to be in her mind. There are some things you relate to and I love her evil self and overachiever aptitude but not exactly her psycho stuff.
Below is my review for the entire Privilege series. This review doesn't contain any spoilers!!
Kate Brian’s Privilege series is a nail-biting spin-off of the Private series. This series is built around Ariana Osgood, who in the Private series murdered her ex-boyfriend (Thomas Pearson) for falling for another girl (Reed Brennan). Subsequently, Ariana attempts, but fails, to kill Reed Brennan, landing her in the Brenda T. Trumbull ...more

So Arianna is back.... And so is Kaitlynn.
This second installment is as exciting as the first one. Kate Brian did not fail us with her twists and turns. At some points though I feel like the idea that "one can always get away with wrong doings" is being blatantly implied. I have not seen a good side of Ariana yet (or am I just simply missing it?). I find that when she finally does something that leads to "good" results, chances are she'd done it by compromising another person's feelings. Is he ...more

While the storyline of this series seems totally far-fetched, Kate Brian does a wonderful job of making it seem so realistic. There's a bunch of action, adventure, and suspense ...more
As soon as I finished Privilege I knew I was going to have to rush out and find this book. I absolutely love Ariana's character in such a twisted way. I know that I shouldn't like her because she is crazy and manipulative and psychotic but the stories are just so good, and I really can't wait to continue the series.
When I first saw the cover art and what not I thought it was going to be snobby and pretentious but it's not. This is definitely not what I thought these books wer ...more
