I had listened to my friends talk about the Gossip Girl series for awhile. They said they were great books and really interesting for teenagers to read. I have never really been much into reading but finally a book seemed appealing to me. Then, the television series came out and I was talking to my friends about it before I saw it. They said I had to read the books first, that the show just wasn¿t the same. I took their advice and picked up the first four books and haven¿t been able to stop reading them since. Although, I don¿t have a whole lot of time for reading, but I really enjoy Gossip Girl when I have the time. The book is very relatable to teenagers. Although, it is far from my lifestyle, it still focuses on situations that teenagers get into and how they deal with them. I would especially recommend this book to all of my teenager friends. Sometimes when I am reading it, I get so caught up in it that I really feel that I am with these characters and living their lifestyle. The way it is written is very realistic and entertaining. I really like that the books are easy to read and a fast page-turner. They keep you interested and wanting to know what is going to happen next. I have fallen in love with almost all of the characters. Some I wish were my best friends, some I wish I could party with, and some I wish I knew just to know. They all seem to live such fabulous, luxurious lifestyles, but then you keep reading and realize that they are normal people too. They get into some of the same situations and have the same problems as normal teenagers have. This is what I love most. It is an entertaining book that I can also relate to. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone and have started reading the second book, You Know You Love Me. I love it already and can¿t wait to read more!!

I love this book! It is absolutly amazing! I starting reading the Gossip Girl Seris a while ago, and I love them so much, I can re-read them over and over! The are definetly interesting. I very much like the way Cecily von Ziegesar wrote the book. I liked how each chapter was a different character's perspective, and I liked the humor, romance, and jealousy/ betrayal in it. It is definetly a book worth reading. :]

I watched the GG series on TV and have been dying to read the books! Only thing I don't really like is that here my Chuck has a brother! Other than that it is very good

This is THE worst YA book I have ever come across, full of sex, swearing, and shallow characters not worth anyone's time and who make immoral behavior seem glamorous. The writing is third-rate, as well. I cannot believe the high ratings on this book!

As a high school teacher I have noticed this book being passed from one student to another. After reading it myself, I can see why. The drama and lives of these uber wealthy New York City teens is not only exciting, but it is also addicting. The term "guilty pleasure" was invented for such a novel. If you don't want anyone to know that you are reading such a tale, listening to the cd of the book is a lot of fun. Actress Christina Ricci narrates the novel and she is perfect for the role. This book is pure fun.

Although the characters are teens, I (50 years+) found this very interesting. It gave some insight to that age group that I wouldn't otherwise have. My first thought after reading it was wow, I wouldn't want my young daughter reading this. But after thinking about it, it would be a great opportunity for discussion and insight into what goes on these days with young people and how they deal with life. It left me wanting to move on to #2!

It was not at all compelling. I only read it because it was my ambition to finish every book I owned. It wasn't romantic, it had no plot. None of the characters were particularly likable. I couldn't understand how someone would actually enjoy reading it. I weight 118 pounds and the book made me feel fat. I remember reading how the girl ate only a banana and orange for dinner and how the author made sure to mention she was a size 2. These details just make teens feel bad about themselves and want to behave in self destructive manners. I think books should be sort of like role models in a way. Guiding us, teaching us a lesson, or helping us face complications. This was completely pointless and addressed no issues. I do not reccomend anyone buy this-or read it for that matter.

These books are awesome and I'm going to read all of the series now. All of the characters have their own personalities which is great for different point of views.

I dont know whether to read these books. The TV show is the best thing in the world and i am beyond obsessed, but the books seem a little different. And also im wondering why they dont mention chuck in any of the summaries since he is one of my favorite characters. Anyways i LOVE the TV show sooooooo much so you should really watch it. You know you love me, XOXO Gossip Girl
