ARC BOOK REVIEW...Georgetown Academy Book Four by Alyssa Embree Schwartz, Jessica Koosed Etting
The Georgetown Academy Series will always be in my eyes, "Gossip Girl" with politics. In the fourth addition of the series, tensions are up, stakes are raised, and hearts are at risk.
Even though my bias is Evan, my attention did go a lot to Ellie. There's a lot more going on for Ellie in this installment and I found myself gravitating to her, her issues, and also her relationship with male hottie Gabe. Their relationship to me was so platonic that I found myself 'shipping' them. lol.
I did find some of the topics though a little boring every so often. More so when I would involve the characters having some sort of identity kind of crisis moment. I mean, we all get those but once in a while I found how they handled it a little annoying.
I also found the love portions of the book interesting but stagnant at times. I felt as if there could have been more but ultimately I was satisfied.
Over all though, intriguing book. You can tell the authors put a lot of thought into it as the political side of the story is especially complex. Now add in familial and love and kin relationships and you have some major drama! lol ;)
