Nothing surprising here, except I love it when a character in an otherwise fluffy book has serious literary pretensions. Especially poetic ones. Because then every now and again I get surprised by a great big genuine belly laugh:

[By Daniel, a dolorous high school poet. This poem magically gets accepted for publication in the New Yorker. The New Yorker! Because, yeah, that could totally happen. Totally. I mean, it's Just So Profound.]

Shitty book.

If I had to pick three words to describe this book, these would be it. The amount of name dropping in this book ridiculous. I've never seen so much name dropping. Not even in My Immortal.

Also, Waldorf getting pregnant? Not a plot twist. Everyone knows that since they got married in the last book. I'm a genius, aren't I?

So, let's begin with this review, shall we?

This book was mediocre, with little plot, and I wanted to kill all the characters. I have a bit of a violent strea...more
Pretty much every sentence goes something like this: "Blair put on her Gucci dress, checked her Nokia cell phone for a text message, and then went shopping at Prada, with her Hermes bag tucked under the arm and a Merit Light cigarette in the other hand." I felt like I was reading an advertisement campaign, one in which everyone smokes and has one dimensional personalities. Which may, actually, be fairly representative of life on the Upper East Side. But it does not make for a very compelling rea...more
- I didn't care for this one as much as the last two. Seemed like being on break from school made everything less interesting.


- Everyone goes to the Black and White Ball, where Flow (rock star du jour) is performing. He sees Serena and falls for her immediately. Serena has fun with him for a sec, but then gets bored of him like always. Leaves him begging for more at the end of the book. Starts hooking up with Aaron, Blair's stepbrother, who is trying to get over his incestuous crush on B...more
I liked this book because it sort of made me hooked in a way that I wonder what will happen next. Some characters were amusing esp. B and S. I think N is just one rich, handsome, stupid and spineless boy. Maybe B just liked him initially because of looks and looks and looks but there's nothing else. B must just felt attached to N because of so much time they had together. She built every fairytale in her mind w/ him as a prince so she found it hard to let go. Character? I wouldn't want a boy tha...more

This is another one of the funnier books in the Gossip Girl series. I especially enjoyed the inevitable disintegration of Jenny and Nate's relationship, and Dan writing Vanessa the "Sluts" poem was great. (This is another one of the plots they incorporated into the show; Vanessa gets Dan published in The New Yorker during "Roman Holiday," only instead of "Sluts" it's a short story about Serena.)

I also enjoyed Aaron's cute, unrequited crush on Blair and the continuing hijinks related to the ongoi...more
These books really are a great break from the more morbid, intense, or fact-laden books I like to read. It's nice to slip into a world where the only problems are superficial and none are deeply and utterly important or life changing. I guess that's what reading is great for though: escape from reality into all kinds of worlds.

The novel All I Want is Everything, by Cecily von Ziegesar, is a story that is centered around two wealthy and fashionable girls Serena and Blair. The other characters, including a filmmaker, a poet, Blair’s ex boyfriend,a young girl desperate for love, and Nate’s friends- add drama to the story, leaving the reader wanting to read more.

The setting and the plot of this story is very interesting and realistic. Blair’s ex boyfriend, Nate, is stuck in a love triangle. He and Blair had dated for so

Jag tycker att boken håller sig i ungefär samma mått som de andra böckerna i serien. Om man tänker efter inser man att det inte är så himla mycket som händer i böckerna, och det är egentligen roligast att läsa när Gossip Girl skriver.

Blair är en av mina favoritkaraktärer, hon känns så äkta på något sätt eftersom hon vågar säga vad hon tycker. Hon är inte rädd för någon, och även om hon ibland verkar ganska kall är hon väldigt varm inombords. Jag kan inte säga att jag tycker om Serena lika mycke...more

All i want is everything by Cecliy von Ziegesar is a good book. I Recomend this book to people who like gossip book and also teenagers. In this book there is a girl named serena. She has her own advice website. On this website she talks to people and they don't know who she is. This website is a secret thing. It is for people who need advice on their peoblems. Serena is the type of girl that likes to hangout with her friends and get into all the gossip that is going around.
Serena has a big cru...more
Two of the main characters, Blair and Serena becomes freinds, once again. As Blair is trying to remember what she admires about her role model, her ex-boyfreind Nate is in relationship with a busty fourteen year old girl named Jenny. Everything seems perfect until unexpected crushes appear and sex tape exploits one of the main character causing major embarrsement and months worth of being grounded . Uh oh! Their Christmas may not be jolly after all but who knows. Nothing is free in this world ,...more
I was curious about these books because I saw lots of students reading these. I decided to pick on up to read it and see what the big deal was. In the first 70 pages I read about blow jobs, sex, and drugs. I noticed that unlike most teenage books, there were no consequences for these actions. The students were spoiled and rich and were able to do whatever they wanted with whoever they wanted. One of the main character is none for her loose behavior and yet she is very popular.

It was an interest...more
Blair and Serena are back to being besties, Nate and Jenny are still the worst, Aaron has the hots for his stepsister, and Dan and Vanessa are in love.

All I Want Is Everything kicks off after Blairs mother gets married. With the addition of a creepy stalker rock star and yet again NO CHUCK BASS this book was just meh for me. I know Chuck isn't a recurring character in the books but still there truly isn't enough of him. And if I have to deal with Jenny Humphrey and her annoying teenage woes muc...more

Blair a Serena jsou znovu nejlepší kamarádky a odjely spolu - a pro ně bohužel - i s rodinou na St. Barts. Eleanor a Cyrus tam strávili své líbanky, a také měli jedno malé překvapení pro svou rodinku. Paní Elanor Waldorf-Rose je těhotná! Blair je v šoku a není schopna se vyjádřit jinak, než že si dojde na toalety a udělá jedinou věc, kterou má pod kontrolou. Vyzvrací se.

I thought this book was okay for a gossip girl book. I don't know I like Gossip Girl books But, after a while of reading Gossip Girl. I just feel like a snob. I mean I know its supposed to be snobby because, It's about girl's who live on the Upper East side and all But, I don't want to feel that way when I'm reading a book.I really like the way some of the characters in this book change. They are less bratty in this book compared to before. Well there is only one character who never changes and...more

While I was reading the book I watched the TV show, and I had to do a work about it.
I think it was a really great book. :)

I read the reviews for this and instantly was nervous about this book. I read the it girl series by fib ziegesar and loved them then the first two books strung me along but wasn't as interesting by far as the the it girl series (which actually follows Jenny Humphrey after this series). This book really surprised me and I finished it in two days.. it was.a little slow starting but much better then the first two. My ebook version of this was screwed up so I actually had to buy the physical copy.....more
All I want is to be obsessed about you!!!

my title says it all....Ill Jenny and Dan are way overly obsessed with people they like.
Serena is a one of a kind slut.
Blair is an over achiever looking to STILL drop her V card on someone.
Nat needs to make up his mind on weed, jenny, serena, or Blair...otherwise he's the man slut of New York.

other than that great story can't believe Blair's mom is pregnant hmmm I wonder if she was pregnant BEFORE the wedding....

you know you love me...Gossip Girl haha

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.

Estos libros nunca dejan de sorprenderme...
Serena es un cielo de persona en este libro... oh ella es esa tipica amiga dulce que siempre ayuda a todos. A veces se equivoca pero... bueh. Cuando Blair queria vomitar y Serena lo evito. Y cuando Aaron estaba deprimido por motivos que despues dire y Serena hizo de todo para ponerle una sonrisa en su cara de ecologista chachi...
Blair cambio, aunque sigue adorando a Audrey como un icono de la moda, B se volvio mas fria, mas como la Blair de la serie...more
I reviewed this back in 2007 and 2014 me is confused about how I could have possibly read THREE books in this series?! I confess, I did love the show, it was campy and over the top and the fashion was fabulous but the With that said, here is my 2007 review:

In this third installment in the GOSSIP GIRL series S & B have finally reconciled and the island of Manhattan will never be the same! Serena is being courted by a famous musician whose advances quickly become unwelcome and Blai...more

I'm going to make this a short review, because it was a pretty short book and a chick-lit(and the third book in this series).

After reading this I actually liked the series a little more. There was way more humor in this one, which made it funny to read.

I actually enjoyed reading this one in stead of being annoyed by the things they say every 5 minutes. Sometimes I actually laughed out loud!

It was nice to see the girls as friends again and they showed tha...more

S and B and J and N are back, along with A, D, V, and assorted other rich, catty Manhattan teenagers in this third installment of the Gossip Girl series. An omniscient and anonymous narrator keeps track of the scene in (now an actual site), where the rumors fly, backs are stabbed, and celebrity sightings are dutifully reported. Serena (S) and Blair (B) are best friends again, shoring each other up as Blair faces life without her ex, Nate, who has hooked up with
Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books)
With midterms approaching and Christmas just around the corner, the Upper East Side is full of stressful rich kids in their expensive coats and stylish hats and scarves. Jenny got the boy and Nate’s not really sure if that’s a good thing. Dan and Vanessa are living the blissful life, or are they? Blair is freaking out over her disastrous Yale interview and the possibility that she may not make it into the only school she ever wanted to attend, but at least she has Serena again. The besties recon...more
In All I Want Is Everything, Jenny and Nate are still "friends" Blair is being haunted by her interview to Yale. Dan and Vanessa are getting closer and yet farther apart. Jenny is now the star of a poem by her brother called "sluts." Blair and Aaron are getting more serious, even though he is her stepbrother. Blair's internal conflict is that she is wondering is she should say to Nate that she wants him to come back of if she should just forget about him. Her external conflict is with Aaron. Sh...more

“She closed Dan's door and walked down the hall to her room. He makes a good boyfriend, she repeated to herself. What the hell was that suppose to mean? She didn't just want a good boyfriend. She wanted that thing Gustav Klimt had captured so perfectly in The Kiss. That radiant, electric, hold-me-tight-so-I don't-fall-from-up-here-in-the-sky feeling of being in love.
Well, don't we all, sweetie?”
