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

What am I doing with my life? Why am I reading these? But more importantly, why do I want to read more?
I liked this one slightly more than book 1, although Blair would really be better off without Nate (view spoiler) And I don't know what is going on with Dan and Serena, but she doesn't seem all that interested in him either. Hopefully Blair and Serena can be friends again though!

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

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

There's so much name-dropping in these books...
Lo mejor de este libro es lo interesante y entretenido que es. Es una historia sin pretensiones, que simplemente está para pasar el rato.
No soy fan ni de los personajes ni de las actitudes expuestas en este libro, pero como mínimo me sirve para pasar el rato.

this book was a car crash from start to finish. all the characters I'd grown to absolutely adore in the tv show were frustrating me to no end.
*Serena is walking perfection who can do no wrong
*Blair is an uptight bitch who can do no right
*Nate is a fucking arsehole who is stoned 99% of the time
*Dan is creepy as fuck
*Jenny is a royal bitch in the making
*Vanessa is pretty cool but her obsession with Dan made me dislike her
the only positive characters were Aaron and Erik who were reaallyy cool and I
I honestly don't know what I'm doing anymore. Like, these books aren't good (nor remotely close to that), and still I sort of need to keep reading. What for? I don't know either. Its shallow, selfish, vapid characters hold little interest for me. And the narrative style isn't any better, truth be told. As I said in my not-really-a-review of the previous book, this is just a trashy read. Nothing more.

The characters in this were the same as the last one. I didn't love them, and there were quite a few times where they annoyed me.

This wasn't a brilliant read, but it was better than the first one.

OMG!! So much drama...

I’m loving for the whole Blair Waldorf as a klepto storyline. Such a fun, easy, fast read. I’m hoping to finally finish this entire series of books this year and if they continue to be as camp and cheesy as this was I’m in for some fabulous reading.

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

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.

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.

Garbage, garbage, garbage, and I love it. Blair's increasingly desperate attempts to get Nate to pay attention to her; Nate and Jenny's sweet but probably ill-fated romance; Serena and Dan's weird relationship, where they each want very different things; the film festival, and the weekend at Brown, and the wedding. All so much fun, all so delicious, and all delightful to read about. I read almost all of this in one sitting, 2 and half hours, in the courtyard at my grandpa's assisted living facil ...more

2.5* These books are entertaining, and I'm gonna keep reading them because I don't have to think about them, but none of the characters have any depth at all. A lot of the writing seems like it could be meant to be ironic but I think it's just shallow and not done very well. Really, reading the books is just making me want to watch the show instead.

This book was actually really entertaining. It definitely was better than the first one! But the characters still were really spoiled and stupid, too, at some times. I don't know what I'm doing with my life reading these books, but what I do know is that I still want more ...!
Nepeta Leijon

You Know You Love Me is perhaps the biggest piece of garbage that I have ever read. It is not funny, it is disgusting, the characters are one dimensional. Shall I go on? Serena is a bitch. Yes, a big one. And yet, Cecily von Ziegesar is favoring her over Blair.

And why in the world is Blair born in November? You know, why is almost every main character in some books born in late November? I don't appreciate that. I was born in late November, too! OMG!!!

Seriously, this book is garbage.

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
"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.

I personally love the Gossip Girl books because they’re short, sweet and full of drama and outrageous events that keeps me hooked. This one did not disappoint. They are as addicting as junk food and they are so fun to read. The whole relationship between Nate and Serena is clearly not a very good one and if I’m honest I think it’s time Dan and Serena called it quits too. If you have seen the show as well (I saw the show before starting the books) it’s cool to see the similarities and differences ...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
