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

There's so much name-dropping in these books...
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
Heerlijk om dit boek 's avonds te luisteren. Soms schrik ik van de woorden die gebruikt worden, aangezien ik nog maar 14 was toen ik het eerste deel las.
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
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.

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.
Jenny me parece demasiado infantil creo que leí 10 veces la frase "Nate no es como Chuck, quien nisiquiera me preguntó mi nombre" me abur

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

The Upper East Side of New York is where all the fun happens. From gossip about each other, to the cut throat competitions they do, and finally their university examinations. Where the Ivy League colleges’ only want the best, they are sadly forced into taking not just the best, but also the rich and who parents’ will donate more money if you let their child in. That’s the fun part of being wealthy! The downside is everyone expects you to make it, without even breaking a sweat.

The people who go to the private schools have a lot of problems. Even their money cannot fix them. Blaire wants to apply to Yale but finds herself in a catastrophe with her stepdad and stepbrother. Her mom had recently gotten married and Blaire refused to give them a chance. When her stepbrother Aaron decides to drive her to Yale she goes with him.
Her ex-best friend Serena is going to a Brown interview with Blaire's boyfriend Nate, Dan, and Nate's friends. Serena, Nate, and Nate's friends are
I can honestly say that I thought this book was super fun to read. You Know You Love Me is a sequel to the first Gossip Girl book, so it is packed with drama and romance. In this sequel all of the characters are rushing to apply for college, and of course only Ivy League ones. There are failed interviews, characters who oversleep and to say the least, stress. This book was extremely entertaining because of all of the mentions of college and getting in and not getting in. Just like always, this G ...more

Pernah nonton serial gossip girl ? Aku pernah, dulu pas masih SMP berkunjung ke rumah nenek yang punya TV kabel. Yang ku tonton nomor pertama pula. Yang paling ku ingat tuh naratornya memperkenalkan kedatangan kembali Serena Van der Woodsen ke New York.

Buku kedua seri Gossip Girl ini adalah buku pertama yang ku beli, buku yang jadi penghuni awal perpustakaan pribadi kecil-kecilanku.

Tokoh utama novel ini adalah dua orang cewek kelas 3 SMA bernama Blair Waldorf & Serena Van der Woodsen. Sesua

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
The second novel in the Gossip Girl series. This novel obviously continues where the first one left off. In this novel, more drama happens then the reader knows what to do with. The main characters, Blair, Serena, Dan, Nate, Jenny, and Vanessa all live in New York City, and whether they realize it or not, they’re all striving for the same thing, acceptance and figuring out where they fit in. College applications are coming up and the characters have their interviews. Add on top of that a massive ...more

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

I really enjoyed this book because I've watched the Gossip Girl series, but reading it was nice because you knew what each of the characters were thinking in their mind. This series takes place in the Upper East side of Manhattan and is about the lives of rich teenagers with the anonymous Gossip Girl who makes posts about the teens and their lives. In this book, many difficult things happen to the main characters like cheating on each other, parents getting married, friendship issues, and bad in ...more

Slightly better writing than the first one. But still, no real plot line.

And wait a moment! Chuck and Blair never get together in the book serie?! Fucking hell. I wasted my time, big time. I am so disappointed!!
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
