Much more Gossip Girl-esque than I remember. I took a issue with who is murdered as it falls into that "kill the minority" trope that I cannot stand being used. The world and tech is school and a lot of grey yet likeable characters.

Time to binge. I've only read this book of the trilogy but that was so long ago that I need to reread it

This book took me a while to finish. I honestly was expecting something different and I normally am not interested in something so Gossip Girl-esque. That said, I did enjoy this book and the idea of a massive tower city was quite interesting. There was a bit too much drama for my liking but for what it was, it was well written.

I have just started this and I am very intrigued by the prologue!

AutumnRLS I really like this cover. Very pretty. 5mo
emilyrose_x @AutumnRLS I think that is what made me pick it up in the library! 5mo
limada I've just picked up this series, but haven't read them yet. I'd love to know your end verdict. 4mo

emilyrose_x @limada I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either (very helpful I know...) I think the overall idea of the book was really good, but I felt some sections were maybe a little forced. A good read though, but I would definitely class it as YA! 4mo
limada @emilyrose_x Thanks. That's about what I expect when I pick up a book based on the cover. ☺ I figure if nothing else it should be a quick-ish read. 4mo
emilyrose_x @limada Let me know what you think of it! 4mo

I've waited a long time for this trilogy, wanting to read them back to back once they were all written. I was so disappointed in the first one I'm not even continuing on in the series. Everyone I spoke to loved it and I thought it just fell short.

LibrarianRyan Finally someone else who thought as I did. I was expecting so much more. Not a gossip girl wanna be. The building would have made for incredible world building if it was explored better. If it had truly been the mystery/thriller it proclaimed to be rather than a high society snob fest. 6mo
MaggieCarr @LibrarianRyan yes! Yes! Yes! 6mo

November 2118

The sounds of laughter and music were dying down on the thousandth floor, the party breaking up by bits and pieces as even the rowdiest guests finally stumbled into the elevators and down to their homes.

Maybe I‘m just kinda getting burned out from these types of books. I just didn‘t find this to be super original. It reminded me a little bit of The Uglies series and the characters weren‘t very likable which made it hard to care about. Not terrible, but not my fave in this genre.

I had heard about this series awhile back, but never had interest in it. Subsequently, a booktuber reviewed it, liked it, and I decided to give it a go. It‘s the type of book that‘s a forgettable read, yet while you‘re reading it, you‘re engaged. I‘m not sure if I will continue on, although I do have the second book from the library already. It‘s between a So-So and Pick, but closer to a So-So.

JanuarieTimewalker13 It takes place in Manhattan in about 100 years in future. All of Manhattan resides in this one tower. It is intriguing, in an entitled teenage mystery way. It‘s definitely different from anything I‘ve ever read before. 8mo

Basically, this book is exactly what it says it is. Lies, drama, parties - a true mix of GG and LPL :)

One of those petty dramas where privileged rich kids sleeps with everyone and everyone betrays everyone, do lots of drugs and you are not required to think too hard.

But I was interested to read to the end - to find out who falls from the tower

1st book for 2019 done❤️ I am a little torn with this book..not sure if it‘s a pick or so so. It took me quite awhile to get into. Some of the futuristic items in the beginning confused me a little, and made me a little disinterested. With that being said, once I started to catch on and get to know the characters it started getting pretty interesting. I‘m curious as to what will happen next in the series....

This book is like the ultimate reality tv show meets dark drama meets, like, the most over the top, angsty, rich high-life story you‘ve ever seen. In fact, this story was SO heavy with the drama that it dropped to so-so for me. Don‘t get me wrong, I picked up this book expecting to see some privileged kids make fools of themselves, but it was just a bit too much for me. BUT I also don‘t tend to love this sort of story anyway, so it may just be me.

I very much enjoyed reading this book. The chapters switch between 5 different characters. Their stories all start off very seperate but as you continue reading the stories soon start to merge. Youll just have to read it for your self to find out just how much. #Happyreading

That one time I tried to have a photoshoot with my dogs when they were napping. I had just gone to the library and checked out too many books. I only stuck it out with The Physician. I wasn't really in the mood for the others...Thats the cool thing about libraries. Books are free and you can always take them back if you're not interested!

Our book is tagged and the "society" girls are all about having fun and getting everything they want. Kind of like Gossip Girl.

If you want a deep meaningful book, this isn't for you. But if you want a ridiculously trashy soap opera of a book... well, you've come to the right place. Sex, drugs, betrayal, incest, and murder... This was a totally guilty pleasure of an audio book and I'm starting the sequel immediately!

Zelma That is a great review. And totally sold me on reading this. 👍 2y
mellissimo Yeah, that sums it up very well! I bought it as an dystopian novel. But even though it does play in the future that's just really not important for the entire story 😅 2y

January wrap-up. Since I was in Mexico for 2 weeks, I read a bunch of things that had been languishing on my kindle app. I loved the tagged book and can‘t wait to read the next in the series, The Dazzling Heights. I‘ve only got 150 pages left in Shantaram, but won‘t make it tonight. 3 books going currently, so starting February off in good shape.

@bookwrm526 Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your thoughtful gift truly blew me away! I absolutely love every single bit of this- the stunning kitty card, the amazing books, those adorable penguin socks(ps. Penguins are my favorites!!), the mug... oh my gosh the mug (I squealed a bit... my boyfriend always gifted me HP so it felt like you even captured a bit of “us” which is so special), the beautiful bookmark and the treats. ❤️❤️❤️👇🏼👇🏼

Megnogged And the bath salts...I‘ll definitely be having a self care Christmas weekend. Thank you again, so, so much! @bookwrm526 did you make the bookmark? It‘s so stunning!! #secretsantagoespostal #wintersolsticebookexchange 2y

This was very Gossip Girlish but with a little more depth. I mostly enjoyed the book but the female characters were not that distinctive. It was hard to remember who was who in some parts of the book. I enjoyed the concept of the tower. I am wavering so hard between and pick and so so.

I love Gossip Girl. Binge watch that show all the time. This book is a page-turner. And if you love the thought of a technological future, this book is for you. It's basically Gossip Girl in the very future. Can't wait for the second book.
