    This was an okay contemporary story, but it felt really long.The characters in this were all okay, and it was nice to see them before the events in the series, but the storyline just felt rehashed and kind of redundant We had Vanessa shaving her head and meeting Dan, Jenny growing massive boobs, and Blair s father announcing that he was gay, but as we already knew all this stuff, it seemed like there was nothing new going on at all We also got the start of the love triangle between Blair, Nate and Serena, and I did get a bit annoyed at the way Nate strung them both along just so that he d finally lose his virginity He really did come across as thinking that whoever was closest would do.6 out of 10

    I borrowed this from the local library because there s been a lot of talk about the Gossip Girl series, especially since the telly show came out Now, it is VERY rare that I won t finish a book if I start it, and even rarer that I won t at least give it a good chance, but this book I wouldn t want to waste another minute on it Seriously, the writing in here makes my beloved Sweet Valley High look like Shakespeare in comparison Want some examples Nate dove on top of her, all five foot eleven inches of his perfect, golden brown haired, glittering green eyed, fifteen year old boyness Nate s snow dampened, godlike curls He rolled onto his back and wriggled like Serena s long dead golden retriever, Guppy All from the very first page And it doesn t get any better Turn the page and you can read all about the time Serena kicked off her baby blue Uggs and scuffed her bare, Urban Decay Piggy Bank Pink toenailed feet down the long hall to the stately town house s enormous, barely used all white Italian Modern kitchen Better yet, you could just not bother I ve read some pretty bad YA Fiction in my time, but this Ugh.

    I really enjoyed this book because it is so unlike my life This is the prequel to the Gossip Girl series So its what happened before all the stuff in the series.I haven t read any other ones besides this one, and now I want to read the rest of them.But someone said that I shouldn t read the prequel before the whole series because it gives something awaybut I understood everything and stuff so I was finebut I guess it might ruin the rest of the series a littlebut probably not.I really liked this book and would recommend it Although there is a lot of sex and drugs in stuff in it

    This book is about how Serena van der Woodsen started falling for Nate and what led to their affair, and why she left Constance Billard School for Girls When Blair Waldorf began to like Audrey Hepburn and when her dad left her mom for another man, when she first fell in love with Nate, and what caused her to have bulimia How Nate Archibald came between Blair and Serena When Nate first learned how to do drugs How Vanessa got into film making and when she shaved her head to make sure she had little to do with the girls at her school Jenny, before her growth spurt kicked in And of course, when Dan started his caffeine and cigarettes addiction and when he wrote his first poem.My text to self connection is how me and Blair both love Audrey Hepburn and I just got the DVD for christmas I really love the movie Breakfast and Tiffany s I give this book 5 stars It was so great and entertaining and especially fun to read It s defiantly a must read after the series itself

    I read some of the Gossip Girl series when they first came out, and then stopped I ve completely forgotten everything about them, and when venturing to the library with my grandma, I saw the prequel decided I might as well read it, then begin to re read the series I have never seen a single episode of the show, and have no idea what has gone on But, I love the writing style the author brings to the table She gives a very objective, clear omniscient view, followed at the end of paragraphs by snippy remarks, saying what we re all thinking, or clarifying what should be gathered The spying Gossip Girl herself is just a way to be caught up on the boring, yet suggestive parts of all the lives you follow the story itself has substance, and tangled, surprising tales that keep your interest Serena, a golden hair goddess angel , who is trying to keep from leaving her home for boarding school Blair, a spunky, crazy pretty girl, who has always lived in her angelic friend s shadow, while now dealing with some daddy issues Both girls are in love with Nate, their strapping best friend, who discovers a new hobby, and with a twist, is in love with them both as well definitely not getting the short end of the stick But, it looks like he may be in love with one a little bit Then Vanessa, an off the wall artistic type who comes to find herself in love with a younger man, Dan, who is working on his struggling, tortured, bound to die young artist image Dan s younger sister is also a subject of the novel, who ends up feeling a little left behind, so she buys some supplements and has quite a big problem I m exciting to begin reading the series again, just to see where it all pans out.

    This was interesting as it was the first GG book I had read for the first time after seeing the tv show, so I kept seeing and hearing the characters as they are on TV which obviously does not work well for Rufus or Vanessa, for example, nor really for Jenny It s quite entertaining, and actually does tie pretty well into the rest of the series they make very few mistakes with events, chronology, etc., which is pretty impressive given that the quality of the ghostwriting or in some cases just with the editing in that series has not always been especially great.The one thing that is weird in this book, which is weird in all the Gossip Girl books, is that even though the books take place over the course of a year and in the case of this one, a year and a half before that year even , they came out over the course of seven years and everything from the clothes to the booze is always current with the year the book came out Thus in the prequel, the characters have access to advanced technology than they do a year and a half later in book one Now, I know I m a big nerd that I even think about stuff like this, but I do And since I ve always found the constant brands in the books distracting, when they also just seem wrong, they re doubly so.

    Annnd I m finally done Not going to read any of the series Nothing happens, I don t care about high school drama, and half the book is brand names.
