I can never resist a novel about witches. There's just something about 'em that calls out to me. *Shrugs* So, when I happened upon 666 Park Avenue while perusing the shelves of my local library one day, I just knew I would have to give it a try.
This is an extremely fun, fast-paced read. The plot definitely sucked me in, and the references to magic were, of course, extremely satisfying. The only aspect of the story that bothered me was the pacing. Pierce wrote wonderful scenes, filled with excitement, drama, and romance, but her descriptions of them seemed somewhat rushed. It felt as though she was in a terrible hurry to just "get on with" the story.
Being as this is a trilogy, I will, of course, be reading the other two novels in the series. I just hope that, in her continued divulgence of the saga of Jane Boyle, Pierce is able to slow down a bit. ( )

Well, I decided to give this book a try mainly because of the TV show, except that the two are completely different. I'm not bothered by that too much, it was a nice surprise. It took me quite a while to get into the book. By chapters 10-12 I was ready to give up but I kept going. It wasn't necessarily that bad, it was just not interesting and I didn't care for all the labels and fancy things Jane wears.
About halfway into the book I couldn't stop reading, mainly because of the relationship between Jane and her future mother in law. As much as Lynne's character frustrated me, I was more frustrated with Jane's lack of a backbone and I wanted Jane to do something about it. There was so much going on that by the time the wedding came, I was ready for it to be over.
With that said, it wasn't that bad of a book. It took me far too long to get into it, but I don't really regret reading it. ( )

I picked this book up because I enjoyed the television series. It was obvious that the book was nothing like the series, but I tried to give it a chance. I found the plot uninteresting, and the main character boring. I gave the book two stars instead of one though, because somehow it kept me reading to the end. ( )

Shallow and mindless, yet surprisingly addictive. 666 Park Avenue reads like one of those sappy teen dramas aired on the CWTV. It's like a blend of Gossip Girl and The Secret Circle, but with a slightly older cast. You can't help but get sucked in by all the pretty people and their pointless drama.

What drew me into reading this book is its stunning cover. The stark contrast between black and green upon a pearlescent shimmering background enticed me. I know, I know. By now I really should have learned my lesson about pretty [b:covers|6068551|Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)|Maggie Stiefvater|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1328839272s/6068551.jpg|6244926] and the crappy content they usually contain, but I couldn't resist.

I have to admit, I nearly tossed the book when I opened it to the first page and it read:
"TWIRL." I immediately rolled my eyes and thought "Ugh. It's going to be one of those girly books." Gabriella Pierce's writing style is very simplistic and she name drops high-end fashion labels as if her life depended on it. But this is a book about socialite witches, so materialism should be expected.

As I read on, Pierce's frequent use of golden to describe Malcolm started nagging at my brain and this feeling of revulsion started creeping over me. Why does this feel so familiar? Ah, yes! It reminded me of our other favorite golden boy, [b:Jace|256683|City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)|Cassandra Clare|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1309277410s/256683.jpg|2267189]. *dry heaves* What does "liquid gold" sound like exactly?

In spite of a banal beginning, the book soon had me completely engrossed in all its superficial glory. It went fast and I had a lot of fun reading it. Don't let the 666 in the title fool you. This doesn't even register on the scary scale. I enjoyed this so much it left me very curious to read the next book in the series. I actually can't wait to read it. ( )

Book description
Ever since fabulously wealthy Malcolm Doran walked into her life and swept her off her feet, fledgling architect Jane Boyle’s world has become an absolute fairy tale. When he proposes with a stunning 5-carat diamond to seal the deal, Jane can’t believe her incredible fortune and decides to leave her Paris-based job and make a new start with Malcolm in New York.

But when Malcolm introduces Jane to the esteemed Doran clan, one of the most feared and revered families of the New York City upper crust, Jane’s fairy tale takes a darker turn. Soon everything she thought she knew about the world and herself is upended, and Jane is left to struggle with newfound magical abilities and the threat of those who will stop at nothing to get them. Bringing together the dual fascinations of high society and black magic, 666 Park Avenue is a story of a young woman’s discovery and survival when her mother-in-law to-be turns out to be a horrible, grasping witch…literally.
