poor blair waldorf! this book is so tragic and alternately should be titled, 'revenge on blair waldorf for being brunette, short, academic, and not really a scheming bitch at all.'

in a mere 200 pages or so, here is what happens to poor, unfortunate blair: (1) her unfeeling, oblivious mother announces she is getting married to a cheesy perv she's known for 3 months, (2) said wedding is to take place on blair's 17th birthday, (3) oblivious mother asks blair's arch-nemesis serena van der woodsen t

Lifestyles of the rich and shameless should be full of partying and good times, but Serena, Blair, Nate, and the not so rich Dan, Jenny, and Vanessa are anything but. Sure, good times are had, but drama is the main course on the menu. Dan is stalkerishly in love with Serena, while she’s just looking for some friends. Nate and Blair are growing further apart with every passing minute as Nate’s eye begins to wander to…Jenny? And Vanessa is still hopelessly in love with the ever unaware Dan. Someon ...more

This series is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. Who can resist the lives of Manhattan's Elite? In all seriousness, for the age demographic that this is written for, and the information placed throughout the novel, its definitely a hit.
Much like I was when I read the first one again after years passing since my first experience with it, I was taken up with the lives of the main characters and instantly drawn in. Also being a fan of the show and certain couples, going back and seeing them pla

So, von Ziegesar is actually a terrible writer, and it's really annoying to be constantly reminded of the events that happened in the first book, but the experience of reading these books parallel to the TV is sort of an experiment in narrative that I'm getting off on-- the book characters are the hyperbolic dark "others" of the TV characters, both more menacing, empty, and one dimensional. There's a complete lack of moral centering in the book (whereas Rufus more and the characters themselves m ...more

I read this so I could continue to badmouth these books knowing what exactly the problems with them are. You know, with the amount of (cigarette) smoking in these books, especially indoors, these books could not take place now. But then there's Gossip Girl on the internet, but not all the characters appear to have or properly use their cell phones. The time period is a bit bizarre. And the characters are insane. Everyone sort of has the same collection of problems. I don't recommend these books ...more

The Gossip Girl books are a perfect escape from reality. When you read them, you leave your world And you sneak in in theirs.

Before I started reading This serie, I had wachted the serie on television. The books are different , in a lot of ways , but That doesn't make them bad. They are Totally insane!

The world of our most loved , rich friends is One big drama. There is always something (most of the time more than just something) That Goes wrong. In This book, Blair is getting a hard time. Her

Gossip Girl is an extrodinary novel about an annomynous person who knows everything about exclusive people in Manhattan. My favorite character would have to be Chuck Bass. Even though sometimes he can be a sneaky man whore,he has this sweet,mysterious,sexy side to him. My least favorite character is Vanessa Abrahms. Because at first she comes off as this nice,innocent person but underneath she is a horrible coniving skank. The part of the book that grabbed my attentio

"We all come from the sorts of families and go to the sorts of schools where not applying to the Ivy Leagues is not an option, and not getting into them would be a total embarassment."

College interviews, romantic troubles and a fancy wedding photographed for Vogue dominate this second installment of von Ziegesar's frothy but fun series about rich Manhattan prep school kids and the gossip web site tracking their lives.

Blair's mother is marrying her seriously tacky boyfriend on Blair's birthday a

When I picked up this book for the first time, I was examining the tittle. I was trying to make an inference on what this book was about. What I thought was completely different from what the actual book is about. I didn't want to put the book down after the first page. After reading the first sentence in the book I already had a visual image in my mind to what was going on.This book was magnificent and incredible! I liked how the author; Cecily von Ziegesar portrayed the characters. This book i ...more

Still reading the Gossip Girl series because of my GREAT LOVE for the show.

This is the book that introduces us to Aaron, Blair's laid-back step-brother. I totally and completely adore him, and I really hope that Josh Swartz & Co. add him to the show sometime in the future.

This was totally one of the more amusing installments in the series, though. Nate's weed-addled love for Jenny is hilarious, and Blair's meltdown after her mother announces her engagement to Cyrus Rose is even funnier. I

Varia entre 2 y 3 estrellas.
Ay, ay, ay el amor que le tengo a la serie hace que siga leyendo los libros pero son dos historias distintas y en parte es genial ya que vendría a ser como una historia nueva.
Como fan number one de Blair lo que sufrí con todo lo malo que le pasa me daban ganas de abrazarla y decirle aguanta que ya viene Chuck y vas a sufrir más jaja.

Unfortunately I picked up this one before the first one, but I've seen the show so I won't be too confused

Post reading:
It was so bad! By about 70 pages in, I decided I was going to hate every single second of it, so I live blogged my hate reading and deciding I'm going to read the whole series and live blog it. I just can't take it seriously, but at least I got to laugh at how much I hated it and complain about it on Tumblr?

On the plus side, it only took me one day to read so it's n

This book was good, but I don't think it was better than the first. Also, I feel like some parts of the book were too predictable, and at parts I wanted to fall asleep because it was very slow. The pace of the book was not my favorite. Plus, not a lot of exciting or read worthy parts were really in this book. All in all, the second book did not live up to the first book.
The book describes Serena, Blair, and Nates life's as they live very pampered in upstate New York. All of them can get whateve

This novel is the second book in the Gossip Girl series. Not being familiar with the series itself made me a bit hesitant to just start in on the second book because I did not know the plot and all of the characters yet. However, once I started to get into the book, I enjoyed it and knew more about the series.
Blair Waldorf is the overall protagonists, I would say, in the book. She comes off as a little spoiled and has some personal problems that she often overlooks to keep her "perfect" life a

You Know You Love Me by: Cecily von Ziegesar is the perfect escape from reality. This book has lots of drama and secrets... As any teenage girl has. When you first start to read this book you don't really see where its going but after you meet the Characters and find out dirty little secrets you are hooked! Blair Waldorf is the spoiled little brat that seems to have everything she wants. Don't trust anyone though! Nate (Blair's boyfriend) and Blair are growing further apart with every passing mi ...more

This is the second book in the Gossip Girls series. I rated the first book two stars, but I had this one on my shelf too. After several challenging reads, I thought it would be nice to read something simpler; brainless, really.

I am still shocked that young teens read this series. The characters are vapid and worry mostly about appearance, smoking, sex, and social status. Thankfully, I've already developed an identity and can shake my head at their behavior.

I was glad to finish this book in one d

Overall, I think that this book is pretty good. The book had lots of drama, and secrets. It was definitely a different view on how high school is, because all the characters are either very rich, or pretty poor. It was effective writing, with how you could really see the characters true colors through their thoughts and actions. The strengths of the book were how the author really thought deeply about how the character would feel and the dialogue. The weaknesses must have been the lack of descr ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone interested in High School lives of rich kids in New york
I really didn't like much of this book. From the swearing to the sex, the life these kids led seemed so stupid and useless, just another bunch of dumb superficial teens and their high school lives.
Arianna Woodberry
This book is a step inside of the head of a teenager's life. It goes beyond an ordinary teen-drama that one would expect in this day and age. It is a web of deception and misunderstanding that could never be copied the same exact way. Gossip girl books are an escape from one’s own reality into theirs. Everything is through the view of the anonymous narrator that knows everything about everything on specific people living in Manhattan that surprisingly know less than the narrator. At first, one w ...more

The Serena van der Woodsen remains uninvited by her old posy which causes her to find herself and find some new friends who don’t care what high end designer she is wearing that day, but they actually like her for her. Lucky little Dan Humphrey get to have Serena van der Woodsen his dream girl since he can remember, in his little ...more

The most intriguing thing about these books is where they differ from the tv series. They are quick "beach" reads with not much substance. All the characters are pretty unlikeable. As another reviewer mentioned, the time period is odd. The books hinge in the internet, but no one seems to use their cell phones. All of them are constantly smoking, and some of the products they use don't ring true for the supposedly filthy rich. This book was mostly about Blair and her struggles. She's still a b*tc ...more

"You know you love me",the second book in the gossip girl series is so more alluring.I so totally fell in love with the upper eastern side lifestyle,how many people would really kill to live like that!
Coming to the characters,I still intensely love dan Humphrey even if he is a guy who writes sad poetry and acts like a desperate idiot.Serena,I'm not really her fan but her optimism is what rules totally making every guy swoon for her. Blair,she is so into her life,I hope she takes a chill pill,lif

Už je to tak. Propadla jsem gossip girl a přečetla další díl. Doslova jsem ho přelouskala za jeden den, protože se to čte samo.

Je něco nového? Samozřejmě. Blair a Nate se stále nedočkali společně strávené noci, a ani nedočkají, protože Blair viděla Nata jak se líbá s Danovou mladší sestřičkou Jenny - vlastně teď Jennifer.

Serena si uvědomila, že Danova náklonost, kterou jí projevuje, je přinejmenším úchylná. Danovo srdíčko je zlomené, protože Serena ho nevi

Warning: SPOILERS!





















Hello Dear Readers! And Happy Lazy Sunday!

I'm at Scruff's this weekend but I thought I would break up the monotony of my weekend with one of the book reviews I promised you in this post. As most of you know, I was a huge fan of the Gossip Girl television series and I had been wanting to read the books. Well, I finally got a hold of them and started reading them at the end of January. I finished up book 11 recently and am finally ready to write out the review.

You Know You Love Me picks up right where we left off. Blair still hates Serena. Serena doesn't quite seem to understand why. Dan, or DANIEL (since he is THAT pretentious in the book) is still stalkery and obsessed with Serena. And Nate, my poor troubled rich boy, is still stoned all the time.

The majority of this book is about college visits, film contests, and Blair's mother getting married to some fat old guy who has a hot son with dreadlocks and a rastafarian attitude. Blair and Serena final

Nach einiger Einlesezeit konnte ich auch diesen Band schnell weglesen. Für die meisten Charactere habe ich mittlerweile Sympathie and Antipathie entwickelt.

Im zweiten Band der Gossip Girl Reihe geht es hauptsächlich um die Bewerbungsgespräche an den Universitäten. Aber natürlich darf die Portion Drama nicht fehlen:
Nicht nur, dass Blair und Nash bei ihrem zweiten Versuch, ihre Jungfräulichkeit zu verlieren, wieder gestört werden und Nash sie danach komplett ignoriert. Ihre Mutter heiratet Cyrus

In the second installment of the Gossip Girl series our favorite spoiled brats are back and at it again, and this time they are trying to get into college. As if the stress of college applications and interviews wasn't enough for Blair, she now also has to deal with the wedding of the year...her mother's (complete with cute but annoying step-brother and all) and the gnawing feeling something between her and Nate just isn't right. Poor Blair.
