I have to admit, I've never read a Gossip Girl novel, but I am a fan of the television series. When I saw this book on NetGalley, I had to give it a shot. It sounded like a fun and interesting twist.

In Gossip Girl, Psycho Killer Blair and Serena give brand new meaning to the word "frenemies". The book follows the first few episodes of Gossip Girl (and I am assuming the first book in the series) very closely. When the book begins, Serena mysteriously shows up after being away for a year. Her return to Manhattan elicits all sorts of speculation amongst her peers. The only difference is that instead of having a drinking problem, Serena has a killing problem. She can't seem to control her murderess desires. When she returns, Blair is less than thrilled. Serena coming back to town means Blair could lose her queen bee crown and she is having none of that. Blair knows that Serena is behind the murders that have taken place, and she isn't about to let Serena steal her thunder. For every murder Serena commits, Blair plans to one up her, which spells bad news for their unsuspecting private school classmates.

All of the bratty, snarky dialogue that we expect from Gossip Girl is here, and the story is entertaining, though slightly contrived. At times I felt as if it went a little too far without having a real good payoff. From what I've read in other reviews, the text is only slightly updated from the original to add in the body count. All in all, the story is fun, and doesn't take itself too seriously, though I did feel it got a little unwieldy the further into the book I got.

It's a fun read, especially if you are a fan of Gossip Girl.
