Aprile (aprileb) Did you like Gossip Girl? Plan on reading any of her other series or continuing this one?


message 10: by Jaymie (new)

Jaymie | 51 comments I haven't read any of her other series, so I'm not really sure about those. Gossip Girl was pretty good, but I'm not sure if I will continue the series. Although I might pick up another one if I need to read something fast and light.

I just led a discussion on this book in the You'll Love This One group here on Goodreads. If you enjoyed the book you might want to stop by and read our discussion. It is just about to wrap up.
