Gossip Girl: #1
Gossip Girl: #1: A Novel by Cecily von Ziegesar | Cecily von Ziegesar
Welcome to New York City's Upper East Side, where my friends and I live, go to school, play, and sleep--sometimes with each other. S is back from boarding school, and if we aren't careful, she's going to win over our teachers, wear that dress we couldn't fit into, steal our boyfriends' hearts, and basically ruin our lives in a major way. I'll be watching closely... You know you love me, gossip girl

Definitely not as good as the show this had made me reminiscing though, mostly on Blair‘s outfits which meant apparently for some reason when I was searching it on Pinterest I kept typing Gossip Gorl by accident so I had to know if there‘s a Gru meme and of course there is it‘s the internet 😂

sudi Gossip Gorl would make a great show 😂😂😂 5mo

This book is not great so far but I needed a quick, fun read and this is basically the only thing I could think of doing to stop me rewatching the show when I‘m already watching too many things 😰

As a fan of the first couple seasons of the show it was fun to read this soapy book. A basic sort of trashy novel about the lives of the mostly spoiled teens on nyc‘s upper east side. Chuck comes off even creepier in the book if that‘s possible. S tries to return but has a harder time than she thought. Will be B and S reconcile...guess I‘ll have to keep reading. Xoxo. #socialmediafocused #booked2019 #canthelpmyself #guiltypleasure #sobaditsgood

Read this because it was mentioned in #PaperbackCrush. The girls in this book make Jessica Wakefield look like a saint! 😂😂 While it was interesting to ‘get away‘ to a different style of living, I don‘t think I‘ll be reading any more of the series. Maybe I‘ll catch and episode of the show on Netflix next...

Starting this one tonight after reading #PaperbackCrush. I think it would be really neat to try and read at least one book from each series mentioned in that book.

RavenclawPrincess913 @shammi.dc10 were still trying to find out which genre she likes shes asked for fallen which is my favorite series, than I got some at the library sale a few weeks ago and goodwill yesterday than figured I'd trade for the 5th wave set... she doesnt like the books my mom gets for her. If she likes Fallen it will be much easier to get her books since that is my favorite 😂😂😂 8mo
Shamzi @RavenclawPrincess913 I passed on a few of my favorites to my sister and I got mixed responses, she liked Eleanor and Park very much, she said she liked Perks of being a wallflower but I have my doubts if she understood it completely, I gave her 2 of the red queen series which she didn't read, she is influenced more by his classmates than me when it comes to books. 8mo
RavenclawPrincess913 @shammi.dc10 I love perks of being a wallflower 8mo
Shamzi @RavenclawPrincess913 me too, I thought the writer perfectly navigated the transition from adolescent to adulthood, the loss and the heart break. 8mo
RavenclawPrincess913 @shammi.dc10 it was super emotional 8mo

Whenever I think about rumors I think about Gossip Girl. I watched the first couple of seasons of the TV show before I lost interest, but I haven't ever tried the books. XOXO

?About über wealthy teen brats from NYC & their superficial drama. 1st in a series.
?Salacious, scandalous, sardonic, & shallow characters who are fun to make fun of.
?Doesn‘t take itself seriously at all (which is good).
?No real plot.
?Good for ppl who‘re wanting a trashy, non-sexually graphic read for wanton indulgence.
?Not for ppl who‘re wanting serious stories.
?Fast-paced.
?Average as fuck writing, maybe below even.
?2.75/5

A little indulgence for the sick human in bed today. I enjoyed the TV series so much for what it was & the book is making me want to re-watch it!!

About a bunch of über rich brats from NYC & their ridiculous drama. It‘s scandalous, salacious, hilarious, & a satirical delight.

Listened to my first audiobooks in what seemed like forever. My friend got a pretty bad concussion and can‘t read or look at screens for a while so we picked these two to entertain ourselves while she recuperated. All and all give both of these a 3/5⭐️ for how hilariously dramatic they were 🤣

QuietlyLaura I hope your friend has a swift recovery! 1y

I was one those that watched gossip girl. I haven't seen every single episode but I did follow it for about two seasons (the last two). I thought it was an alright show so when I got the chance to buy this book at a dirt cheap price, I took it because books are mostly better. In this case it wasnt so or maybe its because I grew up. Whatever the reason, I didnt enjoy it as much. Shallow despicable characters I expected. But (contd below)

kiks But they were all so band and boring. Maybe that was the theme. But the only reason I finished was because it was a quick light read and one less book unread book in my shelf. Good for nostalgia but im not going to read anymore books in this series. 1y

1) Black Panther or Infinity Wars which are pretty much the only movies I‘ve seen in 2018 (at a theater)
2) Food, couch, cuddles, movie/tv
3) 57
4) This thing was sooo damn boring.
5) I‘m on it!

This is so different from the show but yet similar. I should really stop comparing but I can‘t help myself.

Clwojick I feel like I need to reread these! I read them as a preteen before the show even came out, and I always come across them at the thrift stores. Thanks for putting them back on my radar! 2y

#junetunz i loved is serie when i was a teen and the tvshow as well. i don't think i have read all the books. #smellsliketeenspirit

katedensen When I was 16, I wrote an article about these books for my high school newspaper--I found Cecile von Ziegesar's number in the white pages and called her and did an interview 😶 3y
Evelien @katedensen no way! That's so bold of you to just pick up the phone and call her. I would never dare to do that. 3y
Cinfhen That's so awesome @katedensen 🙌🏻my daughter was OBSESSED with this series...I remember having to run to Borders every release day because she had to have the book first, before her nemesis (aka bff) got it!!!! 3y
See All 6 Comments
katedensen @Evelien @Cinfhen It remains one of the most badass things I've ever done. The article was more about how middle school girls at my school were emulating the behaviors depicted in the books...more relevant than it seems because I actually went to a GG-esque NYC high school (as did the author). I read only the first two in the series, but I know my school was mentioned on the TV show. 3y

I while I don't love these anymore I did have and read all of this series and The It Girl spin-off. I have fond memories of this series and I just recently watched the tv show because it bothered me that it was so different right from episode one! #HatetoLove #BookLove17

Captivatedbybooks That's what turned me off of the books that it was soo different from the tv show. I read book one, moved and left my books in storage so i watched the show. After season 2 i couldnt get into the books again 😔 3y
Smangela @Captivatedbybooks honestly... after rereading the books 3 years ago the show may have been better... 😳 3y
Captivatedbybooks @Smangela lol so ill keep them at the wayyyyy bottom of the TBR box 🙈 3y
Deebee It is one of those few instances where the show is better than the books. Also felt the same way about Sex and the City. 3y

An unexpected pain while we were at Disneyland, gave me almost 6 hours alone with the 2 books I brought but didn't expect to read. This book has been on my shelves for years. Since before there was a Gossip Girl show on television. I know there are kids like this. I'm glad my high school experience was nothing like it. Quick read. Somewhat enjoyable. I wanted to finish, so it had that. #LitsyAtoZ #V

SuperPunkNinja I hope you're feeling better!❤❤❤ 3y
