Het is voorjaarsvakantie en tijd voor S en B om naar Sun Valley te vliegen, voor heerlijk après-skiën en dikke pret in de hot-tub. Jammer voor de paar arme zielen die in New York moeten blijven en stage lopen bij de aller-, aller-, allerhipste lui van de stad. In de sneeuw is N intussen helemaal de weg kwijt, en wie slaapt eigenlijk waar in dat enorme huis van G? Dus trek ...more

This was another okay read in the series, but at times it dragged slightly for me.

Halfway trough the book I didn't see any progress in the story-line as well as the development of the main characters. The writing style is really annoying to me at this point, as well as the overall thoughts of the main characters. To me this book showed even more the lack of character-development and stayed with stereotype personalities then the previous ones in the series.
The quote below is an example. Serena just met a Dutch snowboarding team on holida
In the book, “I like it like that a Gossip girl novel”, what kept me reading was the interesting, catty, back stapping, teenage stories. I picked this book because I started watching the series on TV. And it got me interested and I wanted to see the differences. The portion of the book that was my favorite was the part where Jordy and Vanessa were on a date. The book interested me with the sneaky, evil planning, and back stapping things girls do behind even their own friend’s backs. This book ma ...more

Blair is my favorite character in the books, and close to my favorite character in the TV show. What's weird about reading these is that I can't tell if they're actually being written better as the series progressive, or if I'm just more accustomed to it and it doesn't strike me as being as shitty. It has now been a week sense I read this and all I really remember happening in this, in particular, is that Blair almost fucks Serena's brother, who is described as hot. I like that Blair keeps almos ...more

I heard so many people talking about Gossip Girl and how cool it was that I wanted to check it out, after being immensely disappointed by the series.
Well... The books are, at least this one, are not better! The plot was absent and uneventful. The characters boring and annoying. I found nothing positive to say about it and I will absolutely not read any others.
At first it's kind of confusing cause each chapter is about different characters, and some of the characters doesn't even have a communication with each other, so it's like two different stories in the same book.

About the story, at first I thought it's about two girls finding their love but it's actually about a lot of girls and also some boys finding love. And there wasn't really any problems that needs to be fixed, the last book I read "A Wrinkle in Time" the problem of the book is to find Mr

I Like It Like That is about a group of friends that live in the Upper East side in Manhattan. The group of friends have been on and off on liking each other and getting in fights. Blair and Serena were planning a ski trip that they have always wanted to go on since they were young. Before they all went on the trip they had to help Blair's maid decorate the babies room for the new baby that is on the way. This takes them a while to finish because the room they are decorating is very large. after ...more

I mean I honestly don't know why I'm still reading these, hoping they'll get better. None of the characters have any redeeming qualities. Blair is still my favorite even though she's referred to as a bitch. However she never actually does anything bitchy except think bitchy thoughts about all of the ignoramuses around her. Somehow all of these amazing things happen to Serena even though she could quite possibly be the most blissfully self absorbed characters in the book. I will finish this serie ...more

Danova rychle nabytá sláva upadá jako řezané kytky, které vydrží nejvíce týden. A kdo by se tomu divil? Jeho tvorba, kterou tak hrdě nazývá literárním dílem avantgardním, no nic moc. Bohužel existuje důvod, proč jeho tvorbu pozná jen pár lidí. Vzpomene si někdo na tvorbu Baudelaira nebo Verlaina? Asi těžko. Verše podobného kalibru nikdy nemají dlouhého trvání, zvlášť pokud se jedná o pouhé nechutnosti bez špetky kouzla, které by donutily si je pamatovat.

My Original Post

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.

It's funny. Usually, I read the book before I see the movie, but there haven't been too many book series that TV shows have been based on that I've watched. Bones is one of them, but those books are so different it's really only the Temperance Brennan character who is the same. When I do read a book and see the movie I'm inevitably disappointed in how the movie portrayed a character or changed something. I hardly ever think the movie change was for the better, but in the case of Gossip Girl the ...more
Senior year, spring break. What other four words do you need to sum up the drama in this book?

This book is full of drinking (as always), drugs (as always), and relationships. As I've said before, I really like that Nate is beginning to mature into an adult. I'm also glad that he finally realized that Georgie is totally not even worth it. She's crazy and not the good kind. Serena on the other hand, she is constantly striving for attention. It's almost to the point where I wish I could slap her a

I would like to recommend this book my close friend Selena Frei. Because I always talk to her about the series and we both love gossip girl. I think the author wrote this book with the intention that this book would be great to young teens. My favorite character would have to be Jenny Humphrey because she is appealing but doesn’t let people walk over her. In the book she is caught between her relationship with Leo and her friendship with Elise Wells. I think every girl has been through that. My ...more

My expectations for "I Like It Like That" weren't very high considering I had no idea what would be brought up next. But I was impressed with how, for the most part, all of the characters matured in their own ways (and how certain people are beginning to get closer in relationships-- teehee!)

Anyway, in reference to my last review, where I had begun to speculate who Gossip Girl really might be and Chuck's (view spoiler), I can now confirm the fact that Chuck is

“Not that she didn't love almost every boy she'd ever met, and not that every boy in the world didn't totally love her. It was impossible not to. But she wanted someone to love her and shower her with attention the way only a boy who was completely in love with her could. The rare sort of love. True love. The kind of love she'd never had.” 323 likes
