At Waverly boarding school, no one could get enough drama in Cecily von Ziegesar's "Notorious", just one of the series. So when Jenny, a new student, ended up sharing a dorm room with Callie and Brett, two of the most popular girls in school, she knew she was in for a wild ride. Actually, she was bunking in the most popular and breathtaking girl's bed-Tinsley Carmichael, Callie and Brett's best friend. She heard rumors all the time about Tinsley and whether she was coming back after her suspens ...more

Cross-posted from my blog right here

My Review: The It-Girl series are fun, slightly leading towards trashy, guilty pleasures. Notorious in particular is a drama-packed sequel, that while in my opinion not as good as first, holds the promise for the series to get better.
When Hooked: Immediately. The cliff-hanger from the previous book draws you in and has you captured until the final page is turned.
Hookability: (8.5/10) I'll give the series props for it's hookability, when it hooks you it hooks y

Notorious is the second book in the series The It Girl (by Cecily Von Ziegesar.) I found this one much more interesting than the first novel, The It Girl, because it was really intense, and kept me on the edge. Jenny Humphrey is still recovering from the fact she was almost expelled from Waverly Academy her first night there when legendary Tinsley Carmichael, another student who was expelled last year, arrives. Tinsley is described to be beautifully intimidating, and she gives Jenny the cold sho ...more

Notorious is the second book in the It Girl Series. It picks up right where it left off in the first book, when the notorious Tinsley Carmichael is being readmitted into Waverly Academy. Everything about Tinsley is glamorous. In a matter of a week she has messed up Jenny's,Callie's and Brett's friendship, stolen Brett's boyfriend and regained her position as queen. After a very rocky patch, Callie and Easy have split. Leaving Callie heartbroken and Easy already with a new girl... Jenny. The book ...more

I read this book as my summer reading book. At the beginning of the book, I found it very boring. As I started to get into the book, it got interusting due to the fact that this whole book is most revolved around pointless teenage drama. Even though many people get sick of drama, no one can really say that it's boring. With drama there is always something new and it always keeps you on your toes with what will come next. Something that I liked about this book is that I could relate to the charac ...more

Notorious is one of the great The It Girl series. It is second in line to The It Girl. This book could potentially have a lot of controversy, looking up to stereotypical and cliche ideas of rich beautiful people at a boarding school. Very similar to Gossip Girl, there are a lot of scandalous scenes with Tinsley, who is now back from her suspension, and Jenny, the 'new girl'. Callie, the typical blonde, starts up her own drama, constantly comparing herself to Tinsley. Brett's affair with Mr. Dalt ...more

I hate how these basically plotless books manage to keep me interested somehow. They're such light readings and perfect for when you don't want to think too much about twisting plots or anything like that. It's just such a guilty pleasure for a lazy day.

Jenny Humphrey had reinvented herself as the 'New Jenny' in hopes of fitting more perfectly into the elite and admired society at Waverly Academy, pristine and privileged co-ed boarding school in upstate New York. Towards the end of the first novel, the It Girl, it seemed she had successfully done so. Until the devil in the latest yet-to-be-marketed

Although the sequel to The It Girl wasn't as intense and fast-paced as its predecessor, it still held the guilty charm that all of the It Girl books seem to hold (on second thought, that all gossipy, fashion books seem to hold). I didn't particularily like Tinsley's arrival or her attitude (but who does?) but I suppose that's the way we're supposed to see her. In that case, the author did a great job of portraying the Queen Bee as the self-centered, twisted girl she is.

NOTORIOUS contains more scandalous activity than a grocery store tabloid and is a far better read. Tinsley, Callie, and Brett were all best friends in room 303, living life at the top of the social food chain at Waverly Academy, until Tinsley is expelled and is replaced with another roommate, Jenny. Somehow Tinsley manages to gain re-admittance and quickly springs back into action, stirring things up with the new girl--and everyone else for that

This book is about Jenny Humphrey, a freshmen in college trying to fit in with everybody. she's not as fresh, nor is she as pretty but she does have abnormally large breasts that people DO seem to notice. She dorms with three rather popular girls on campus and only one is nice to her. Tinsley, the girl that just returned from suspension is an instigator, trying to make things worse between Jenny and Callie. Callie's a popular girl too, whom also lives in their dorm. She was going out with this ...more

After a long summer, Tinsley Carmichael has returned to Waverly Academy to regain her place as the "It Girl". She struts onto the campus, expecting everyone to worship her, but instead, finds a curly haired brunette with gigantic boobs in her old bed. Jenny introduces herself and Tinsley immediately dislikes her. Despite her hopes, she no longer has her two best friends. When they lay eyes on Tinsley again, things between them are awkward, to say the least, and Tinsley starts thinking that she's ...more

a spin-off from the Gossip Girl series, which i didn't know when i picked it up. like the gossip girl books, took me a while to get into the rhythm of all the people mentioned that all seem the same to me. but this book takes place at a boarding school instead of The City.

i kind of liked these characters better then in GG, because they seemed more real and didn't do crazy stupid adult things, which i find really annoying. maybe because they were at a boarding school and had more rules? but you w

Has to be my favorite in the series. Jenny is a fresh freckled face at Waverly, and she's caught the attention of the guy everyone wants, Easy Walsh. So how does Easy's girlfriend feel about this? Cat fight to the DEATH, or atleast until the other girl's extentions fall out.

Some situations in this book are just laughable when I think the author was trying to take a more serious approach, it really didn't work. I enjoyed the book none the less. I believe I read it in 6th grade so most of the "try

Jenny Humphrey is much more annoying in the Gossip Girl series, but here she's quite tolerable, compared to the company she keeps. Callie Vernon is old money; her mother is Atlanta's governor. Brett Messerschmidt's parents are Jersey gauche; her dad a cosmetic surgeon, and her mum a big fan of animal print-leggings. And Tinsley Carmichael is the biggest bitch of all, but we're supposed to hate her.

In this instalment, Brett's been having a sexless affair with her adviser, and Tinsley decides to b

First things first, the second book is better than the first. This is a quick read to pass a couple hours by so decided today was the day. I usually have a hard time reading this style of writing but I actually enjoyed this one.

I liked it I guess. But that's it for me. I tried reading the next one but I just hate these kids too much. They are so fucking annoying that I'm not going to torture myself.

I re-read this series often because I love the ton of characters and the consistent drama. I love the youthfulness of the young characters's voices and how nostalgic it makes me for teenagehood while at the same time reminding me how awful it was to only just stop being a child. This series is fun and quick and sometimes even has a cool wise message but overall it's a guilty pleasure series. The events are cliche, the descriptions of clothing are lost on me, and the lack of characterization for

I thought It was mainly your typical clique of girls, I like that it gives you sort of an outside-in perspective.
from reading this book, i was really able to enjoy reading again. i haven't been able to raed a enjoyable book in so long. i remembered reading the first book in 9th grade, however never knew there was a sequel to the whole story. Anyways, i found this book a couple of days ago, and to find out from my friends that it was a sequel. So, i said why not give it a try. well, it's not that bad.
