Summary: Everyone who's anyone in New York City is suffering from post-college-application cabin fever and it's time to run a little wild! Could it be that Serena is smitten with Blair's stepbrother or will the Fashion Week parties pull her away from any attempt at true love? Dan and Vanessa are mad about each other and pursuing their creative dreams -- but be careful of what you wish for. Nate hits an all-time low as Blair's Yale interview with a tall, handsome alum takes an unexpected turn and Jenny makes a new friend who gets a little too close for comfort. And just who is going to get into college early acceptance? Wintertime has never been hotter in NYC as things steam up all over Fifth Avenue. (Taken from Goodreads)
Thoughts: I read the first three books in the series a long time ago and I still had this one sitting around so I thought I’d read it for completions sake. I have to say that I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the first three. I thought it was alright but I wasn’t overly thrilled with it.
I would put it down to my changing tastes in books. It was about 2 years ago that I read the other three books so my taste in books has definitely changed.
At this point, I’m not sure I’ll carry on with the rest of the series, but this one was alright.
