Done anddd Done:)

Title: Last Christmas
Author: Kate Brian 

Summary ( 
Ariana Osgood has everything an Easton Academy girl could want: straight A's, the perfect boyfriend, and a coveted spot in exclusive Billings House. But on the first night of Christmas vacation, a blizzard traps her on campus with irresistible bad-boy Thomas Pearson. Alone. Instead of snuggling with her boyfriend next to a cozy fire in Vermont, she's huddling for warmth with Thomas in Ketlar House.

As the snow transforms Easton into a winter wonderland, Ariana finds herself falling for Thomas. But someone is watching their clandestine romance unfold, someone intent on turning their holiday weekend into a nightmare...

Last Christmas reveals the secret of what really happened before Private began -- and the shocking truth will change everything for fans of Kate Brian's bestselling series. 


This book was actually really intriguing! You get a very good look inside Ariana's head. Previously, I was sure she was a physco. Although I still believe this, her mindset is now a little bit more justified in my head. It was touching, in a way, to see what happened to her. At some parts it was disturbing, but if I told more it would give it awayy:) 

Overall, I would recommend this book to any PRIVATE fan, but you need to read the series before you read this book! Otherwise, it will give stuff away in the other books, and events it won't be as surprising. Last Christmas was helpful with helping me understand the previous books, and it was cool how so many connections were made.

****SPOILER!***** (if you haven't read the private series)

Even though Ariana is cold-blooded and she tries to do away with Reed, at the end of this book you see why she felt this way. Even though I still don't think she was right, you start to sympathize with her. This story is heartbreaking, and you find yourself actually becoming  Ariana. Or, maybe I'm just weird, but I was starting to use her breathing techniques when I was trying to calm down...

(In two three... Out two three...)


At the end, I found myself craving more for this book. I got a bit confused at some parts, since I didn't pay attention to the chapter titles (my bad...), and I had to go back and reread some, which wasn't that bad. 

So, basically, read it!


I went to the library to get Pretties today, but I couldn't find it! Hopefully they have it tomorrow, or I'll just find another book.


I did nottt think another book was going to come out in the series! But I'm SOOOO ecstatic that there is, indeed, another book coming out! *CHEER!*

It is called; PARADISE LOST.

and, also, there is yet another book coming out about Ariana again! Which is cool!

Looking forward to reading:)
