Review: London Prep series by Jillian Dodd

We came across this series on Instagram and knew we had to read it. It literally screamed YA Netflix show and gave us Gossip Girl vibes…but British. We love the series’ Instagram. It’s got killer promotional pics and we love seeing the actors in their characters. It helped us visualize the characters and made us love them even more. Now, onto the review! 

London Prep 1

London Prep (London Prep, #1) by Jillian Dodd

Mallory James is beyond pissed at her parents when they drop a bombshell on her: she’s being sent to London for a three week exchange during her Junior year. Mallory’s been to London already– it’s stuffy, rainy, and boring. What more is there to see? Her parents don’t seem to grasp what an utter nightmare this will be for Mallory’s perfect New York lifestyle.

Unfortunately, our September book club was cancelled. However, we still wanted to discuss Most Likely with you! We chose Most Likely because the author, Sarah Watson, is the creator of The Bold Type. Also, we loved the premise of four best friends and one of them is destined to be President. 

FYI, our next virtual book club is on October 26th. For more information, check out the Facebook event page.
