Oh. My. Gosh! I LOVED this book.

First of all, this cover is gorgeous!

Second of all, the first chapter / prelude grabs the readers by revealing one girl is falling off the thousandth floor. Holy opening!

The front flap lists all the main characters and I had my husband guess who he thought was the one who died. I’m pretty sure he guessed correctly…. And throughout the book I was being swayed as to who it was and why. Needless to say, The Thousandth Floor kept me entertained and on my toes.

Many others have said The Thousandth Floor is a book for lovers of Gossip Girl. They are absolutely correct! (I was a huge Gossip Girl fan. I also was a huge Clique fan.) The Thousandth Floor is filled with the extremely wealthy, class divides, drugs and alcohol in arms reach, family secrets, a ‘lonely boy’, and twists among every chapter.

I picked up this book for AdventuresInYA quarterly book club. You can listen to their thoughts here.

The Thousandth Floor Book Review

There is one thing that threw me off and made me wrinkle my nose with a twinge of disgust. I won’t reveal much since it is such an important part of the story. Even so, it didn’t make me NOT want me read the rest of the story.

The book ends with a great close, making you wanting to pick up the second book!


I cannot wait until the second book comes out in a few months. The Thousandth Floor is a great guilty pleasure for all the Gossip Girl fans out there!
