Genre: Chick-Lit, Drama, Romance
Queen B has fallen off her throne and landed in Brooklyn (of all places!), where she's sharing an apartment with V. It's hell at first, but somehow they find a way to make it work - and B even discovers that she has some domestic talents she never knew existed! But now N and S are a couple, and heartbroken B's desperate attempts to maintain her reputation have put her on "sweet" little J's foul side. And when it comes to these girls, revenge is a dish best served HOT!
Can you take a little heat?
I loved the second novel, which is the second novel in HyeKyung Baek's hit new manga series of Gossip Girl: For Your Eyes Only! :) I loved it, and I especially loved Jenny hitting the scene. She stirred up trouble and got even with Blair, something I never expected. She stood up for herself - in a way you'll never imagine. She really shows she isn't innocent - and definitely not "Little J."
I mean, Blair did deserve it in a way, but she also didn't, too. I'm torn between that. She just has to learn she can't treat people that way to stay up at the top, and remain the "Queen Bee." She also has to stop competing with Serena, because she's unique in her own way. I mean, hello, she's Blair! :)
I loved Vanessa's quirkiness - and her sarcasm. She really can be herself - and I love her for that. She really loves Dan, too - and I hope he'll see that soon. I also loved Blair and Vanessa getting along. It really shows that Blair needs a taste of reality - and she did get it. She had to hit rock bottom before she can hit the high road.
I really enjoyed the novel. The emotions and feelings were real, with the comedic relief from Vanessa and Chuck. I'm also really glad she decided to take the first step in taking the high road towards her relationship with Blair. I can't wait to read the third novel - and wonder what revenge Blair will take towards Jenny?
Likes: Chuck + Blair, Dan + Vanessa, Vanessa's quirkiness, comedic relief from Vanessa and Chuck, Blair getting a sense of what's right and wrong
Dislikes: Blair's "so-called" friends, Jenny getting revenge (Blair did and didn't deserve it).
