This leaves Blair extremely angry, not only at h [...]
Why am I still reading "Gossip Girl" when I no longer write a column about trashy teen books? A short lecture for anyone who may be listening: Not only is "Gossip Girl" trash, it's addictive trash, and you must not ever read it.If you do choose to read such tripe, please don't blame me if mermen fall out of the sky and land on your head, or if your toenails begin to curve at the edges, or if you suddenly find yourself driven to fondle packets of "granulated peanuts." These are the sorts of terri [...]

2.5 / 5 stars ratingThis review is posted at cabezadecrecre.wordpress/And the rest is history, repeating itself.Could this series become any more monotonous? I’m honestly curious to see what the last novel will hold. For eleven novels we’ve focused on the same group of people and the same relationships: Dan/Vanessa, Vanessa/Aaron, Serena/Nate, Blair/Nate, etc. etc. Nothing ever gets resolved! For some reason, these guys and gals always end up trying to come back to each other – even though [...]
Surprisingly, Blair didn't kill Nate while they were alone together for a month, sailing the seven seas in the Archibald yacht. They return to the city happy, tanned and ready to start their life at Yale together because Nate still hasn't told Blair that he didn't graduate. Because even though he loves her, he's also half-terrified of her.Serena also won't be going to Yale, since her career as an actress is taking off (no, seriously), and she doesn't think she can stand watching Blair and Nate b [...]
I'm not giving this book three stars because of the plot. The plot is absolutely fine, and continues on from the last book exactly as I expected. It's fun and it's shallow, and I liked it. I'm giving this book three stars because I realised some things whilst reading it.1) This is book number eleven and absolutely nothing has changed. The characters haven't grown at all, they are still all in the same situations as they were in book one, and when I really think about it, I wonder what the point [...]
I think Nate is probably my least favorite character. I mean, sure, he's hot. But basically he jerks around Serena and Blair for the entire series. Like, come on. I see the appeal, but if I were one of the girls I would have backed the fuck off around book 2 or so. The so-called 'ending' to the series really wasn't unexpected. Serena becomes a movie star. Blair goes to Yale like she always wanted, and I assume she becomes the most popular girl on campus the first day. Nate sails around the world [...]
Being the last book in the series about Dan, Serena, Blair, Nate & Chuck I was rather disapointed with the way it ended. Nate just leaving the girls, never really finding out who his heart belonged to. After reading about the Nate/Serena/Blair triangle for 11 books I would have liked it to have a definite ending. (for me Nate&Serena would have been the best). I guess all in all the book is good, but it leaves more things opened that close and I think it would have been better to end the [...]
This was another okay book, but I did find it quite boring in places, and also a little unbelievable, I mean, did Dan really think he was gay?6 out of 10
Tenth and last of the first Gossip Girl series. Blair goes off to Yale, Serena becomes a movie star, and nate sails around the world. A prequel is coming out this year and a new GG series about the Carlyle triplets begins in May, 2008.

In just ten short days the kids of New York City will be packing up their convertible and driving off into the sunset, awaiting, well they do not even know themselves. Everything in their life is changing, after all it is the end of summer and instead of another year at the school they went to since they could walk, it is something different. In just ten little letters the word University opens a whole world of mystery and the unknown. Dan heads East, our trio [...]
In 'Don't You Forget About Me', the first day of college is just around the corner. Amidst the excitement and anticipation, there's just enough drama to make time fly. Nate and Blair return from their blissful one-month vacation but of course their happiness is short-lived because Nate, Serena and Blair in the same place at the same time is recipe for disasterThe love triangle was incredibly frustrating and annoying because the content was similar to the previous installments. As usual, Blair go [...]

My Original Post 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. A [...]
I can't believe I got to the 11th one and was like, I want more?? I'm pretty satisfied with the ending though. BUT I wouldn't be mad if CvZ did a Sweet Valley style comeback about them as adults. BRING IT ON.

Upon returning home, Blair finds out that her mother is throwing her and Aaron, her stepbrother, a graduation party at the Metropolitan Museum. She also finds out that their family is moving to Los Angeles, because of Cyrus' work and her father and his partner Giles adopted two Cambodian twins named Ping and Pong.

How I Came To Read This Book: A few years ago I dived into the prequel of Gossip Girl, reminisced for the days when the series was entertaining, and bought the final two books in the series to finish things off.The Plot: It’s a month after the previous book, and our heroes are about to head off to college. The point of this book is to (predictably) unravel much of the past plot developments. Blair’s mom is throwing her a goodbye party, but really it feels like a farewell to the life she’s [...]
The final few chapters are well-written and very believable - and quite remarkable, I thought, for a teen novel. In spite of the overt snobbery and emphasis on material wealth, the "Gossip Girl" books are not all bad: for all their enthusiasm for popularity and fashionable clothes, the heroines encourage readers to grab life by both hands and turn situations around to their own advantage. Blair and Serena may be shallow and manipulative, but if young girls use them as role models to boost self-c [...]
I first read the Gossip Girl series a few years ago and I wouldn't have read this one since I was at least fifteen years old. However, I decided to re-read the whole series this year. I am still so fond of this series, as it was one of my favourites throughout my adolescence, but I just can't shake how awful this one book was. It's probably my least favourite of the entire series.First of all, where was Jenny???? I understand that she was away in Prague for the summer, but that hasn't stopped Ce [...]
Acest volum se învârte în jurul alegerii lui Nate, între Blair și Serena. Tot acum, personajele principale pleacă la facultate (sau nu!).Nu se pot spune foarte multe lucruri despre acțiune căci este destul de statică, dar modul de scriere e cu adevărat impresionant, nu am observat detaliile până acum, fie că vorbim despre descrierea sentimentelor fie despre descrierea naturii. Cartea, bineînțeles, nu duce deloc lipsă de umor și am reușit să-mi traduc în minte mai multe replic [...]
Fantastic! So much drama in so little time. Everyone is heading off to college and only Vanessa and Serena are staying behind in NYC. Blair and Nate got back from their 1 month cruise together. Nate comes back confused as every, because he figures out he is in love with both Serena and Blair. He tells both of them that he didn't get his diploma and is not heading off to Yale with them. Blair is pissed off and throws a pair of shows at him. Serena is okay with that because apparently is staying i [...]
Although I enjoy the TV series based on these novels, I don't actually like the books as much. Let's face it--people read Gossip Girls just for entertainment. You won't get much out of it except lessons about backstabbing and crazy love triangles that never seem to end. It just isn't a book that makes you think about the important things in life, like the A-List and the other series by Melissa de la Cruz. Don't You Forget About Me is the last book that talks about Blair, Serena, Nate, Dan, and V [...]
This book has a great finality to it because it was supposed to be the last book until they wrote a book showing the college years. Blair and Nate return from their trip. Nate finds out that he has to repeat his senior year of college. Blair freaks out and he sleeps with Serena. Blair gets her dad to get Nate back into Yale. Blair's family is moving to L.A. and her mother throws her a fabulous party. Serena's movies comes out, and she deals with her feelings for Nate. Dan breaks up with Greg, an [...]
It took me three years to read the whole series and finally i am done. I love the series so much and i am really sad that is over. At least i have The Carlyles, The It Girl and the Manga series to read. I've went through so much throughout the series and i remember how much i wanted to read all books and how happy i was when i got the first book and couldn't wait to show it to my best friend. I guess since i started reading the series I've always had a book from the series to read and now i just [...]
I just started reading this book. Its the 11th book of the Gossip Girl series. I dont really have much to say because im only 30 pages into the book, but i'll say what has happened. Ending the 10th book starting the 11th, Serena, Nate, and Blair were all in the Hamptons. And they all decided to take a road trip (spur of the moment). After their breakup, it felt kind of awkward for Blair to be around Nate , but being in the backseat together, they started to rekindle. And seeing, Serena did get a [...]
After the increasingly surreal direction that the previous few books were taking, it was a relief to see this one heading back to the core characters and giving them all an ending of sorts (though obviously Cecily Von Zig-A-Zig-Ah has since written/given permission to ghost another book), and I think it was much improved as a result.I actually thought Dan's sexuality crisis was resolved quite well in the end - he never convinced as being gay or bi, so it was satisfying that he eventually just re [...]
At last, summer is coming to an end for our kids but their exploits are far from over. Drama boils over as love triangles grow and decisions are made. We’re reunited for one final party in the city before everyone departs for college. Dan’s sexuality is explored and his mother makes a surprise appearance.Don't You Forget About Me is Gossip Girl in all its glory: pure fun and sarcasm and romance and fashion.Although university is just around the corner; their changes are only just beginning a [...]
