SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS:
With the college applications complete and summer in full bloom, Serena, Dan, Vanessa, Blair, and Jenny have got an interesting vacation ahead in New York City before heading off to college where they plan to fulfill all of their dreams.MY TAKE:
I've read this book before, but it's still fun to read the second time around.
In Because I'm Worth It, Blair flirts with a married man, Nate finds himself a new princess, Dan gets involved with another writer despite still being with Vanessa, and Serena lives her life to the fullest.
The thing I enjoy most about these books is being able to live vicariously through these teens. I mean, I don't want to have their lives exactly, but some of the things they get to experience are pretty cool. Besides the obvious stuff like living in New York, there's also things like Serena's surprise job and Dan's writing fame.
Is the book realistic? Well, it's a little far-fetched at times, but that's what's fun about it for me. I may also not like all the characters, and I might like some characters more in the show than in the books, but I did like this book enough for me to finish it pretty quickly.
- It's a fun, quick read.
- Their lives seem like a lot of fun.
- Blair gets more likable as the series goes on.
- It can be a little far-fetched sometimes.
READ IT IF:
- You love the show.
- You are a Blair Waldorf fan.
- You wish you lived in New York.
