Book Description

In You Know You Love Me, the sequel to Gossip Girl, it's brunette vixen Blair Waldorf's seventeenth birthday, and she knows exactly what she wants--Nate, her studly troubles boyfriend of three years. But Blair's been too busy filling out Ivy League college applications to notice that Nate has found himself another playmate.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

College interviews, romantic troubles and a fancy wedding photographed for Vogue dominate this second installment of von Ziegesar's frothy but fun series about rich Manhattan prep school kids and the gossip Web site tracking their lives. Blair Waldorf's mother is marrying her "seriously tacky" boyfriend on Blair's birthday and has chosen the bulimic overachiever's former best friend Serena as a bridesmaid (Blair will be maid of honor). Meanwhile, "hunky" Nate avoids Blair (he's secretly seeing chesty Jenny Humphrey), and the compounded stress makes her act like a "freakshow" during her Yale interview. Blonde bombshell Serena is disturbed by poet Dan's intense affections, struggles through her own interview at Brown and scores first prize in a school film contest. The plot culminates at the wedding, where the girls' boy troubles come to a head. As with her Gossip Girl, von Ziegesar creates a complete world: the characters get drunk, shop and indulge in spa treatments plus, the film contest prize is two tickets to Cannes. While this is still strictly a guilty pleasure, the story lines are better developed in this volume and the characters show more growth. But it's their outrageous lifestyles and antics and the snide omniscient narrator that will keep readers turning the pages. Ages 15-up.

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up-In the spirit of Gossip Girl (Little, Brown, 2002) comes You Know You Love Me, which deals with the same New York City friends. The novel runs much like a soap opera, except that the main characters are all rich and snobby chic 17-year-olds who want what they want and let nothing get in the way. Blair's mother has just announced that she will marry a short, stubby man of high society, Cyrus Rose, after a two-month courtship, and Blair must deal with a whole new family life, including Aaron, a dreadlocked hippie stepbrother. She has disowned her best friend, Serena, who slept with her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend, Nate. He has begun to return the affections of ninth-grader Jennifer, whose brother, a hopeless romantic, is pining over Serena. Gossip Girl is a chat room for relaying information to and about the group. A great read for those who like romance and drama related in a sassy manner, complete with obscenities and some alcohol, drugs, and sex.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Fun October 2, 2003
"You Know You Love Me" is a continuation of the last book in the "Gossip Girl" series entitled "Gossip Girl." Ziegesar brings back Blair and Serena's scandalous, yet enticing, affairs, and their minor problems.
"You Know You Love Me" begins with the characters of "Gossip Girl" applying to Ivy League Colleges, and Blair planning not only her seventeenth birthday, but also helping her mother get ready for her wedding, which is being photographed for Vogue. Yes, the magazine. Then there's Serena, who is being constantly pursued by Dan, a disturbed poet with intense affections.
But, although these kids are rich, obviously money can't buy you everything. At least it can't buy Blair Waldorf everything. For Blair's seventeenth birthday bash is coming up, and she knows that the only thing that she can possibly wish for is Nate Archibald, her troubled, yet gorgeous, boyfriend, of course. But little does she know that while she's sending out college applications, Nate is fooling around with Jenny Humphrey, a ninth-grader!!
This book is set for people 15 & over, due to bad language and racy content. Fans of "Sex and the City" and "Cruel Intentions" will relish in the likeness of this book, and the characters rich and scandalous lifestyles. A great read when you're looking for some...gossip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first one! June 15, 2006
By meewee4
This book is about Blair and problems that are starting to occur in her life. She finds out that her mom is getting married to her boyfriend and that soon Blair will have a new stepbrother name Aaron. Nate dumps Blair for Jennifer, a freshman and Blair is upset. One good thing that happens, though, is that Serena and Blair fix their friendship and everything is back to normal. Aaron and Blair end up going to Yale together for Blair's interview. They decide to leave a day early and they stay up all night. Blair oversleeps and she has no time to get ready for her interview. She is so stressed that she ends up kissing her interviewer and spilling the problems she is having in her life.

Personally, I thought that this was better than the first one. It had a better plot and got into more detail. After reading this book I couldn't wait to start reading the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A complete guilty pleasure! September 11, 2002
After a stressful junior year full of books like The Scarlet Letter, The Great Gatsby, and The Grapes of Wrath, I was eager to fill my summer with some lighter literature. I found the first Gossip Girl book (...)and read it about five times. After what seemed like an endless wait, the second novel came out, and I ate it up. Although you may not want to do your AP English 4 book report on it, You Know You Love Me is an awesome book if you're into gossip, money, shopping, scandal, and relationships (and who isn't???). The storyline, about a group of devious high society New York kids, may not relate to many people, but that's why we love it so much! However, I WAS able to relate to some of the things the characters are going through, especially their college applications and interviews (...). I would definitely reccomend this book, and the first Gossip Girl, to any teenage girl who's looking for a book that will make you smile but not make you think too hard.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's Not to Love? March 20, 2003
By A Customer
Gossip Girl is back with another deliciously addictive, rumor filled novel. Serena, Blair, Nate, and Dan are all applying for college. Blair has her heart set on Yale but, well, let's just say her interview doesn't go as well as she would have liked. Serena's desperatly trying to get it together so she can get excepted to anywhere other than South East New York U (FACT: Colleges with more than one compass point in their name aren't very good colleges.) Dan is still hopelessly infatuated with Serena, but she thinks he bordering on stalker. Nate ditches Blair for the most unlikely person. Oh, don't you just love a good scandal? Heads up social butterflies, you gotta read this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first October 4, 2002
Although I can't say that I was expecting too much, I think this book definitely exceeded my expectations. It was a lot better than the first for sure, and the story line seemed to be much more interesting. Basically it builds on the main ideas from last time: Dan's stalker-like obsessions with Serena, Blair wanting to go all the way with Nate, Blair's mother getting married, Serena's movie, etc etc. The focus of the book is that everyone is getting ready to head off to university, so you read about a lot of them on road trips going to interviews with potential schools. This book had such a surprise ending, with some relationships breaking apart, and some new relationships developing too (there's especially one bizarre relationship between two people you'd never expect to get together). I guess that's what I like about this book, it's not predictable. It leaves you guessing right up to the last few pages. A great overall read. Make sure you've read the first book if you're new to the series, because I don't think you'd be able to keep up with this one if you haven't. If you've read the first, make sure to snatch up this second one!

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Trash! June 3, 2008
This entire book series and the accompanying television show are a prime example of everything that is wrong with the United States today. I work in a library and I couldn't help but notice that all the teenage girls seem absolutely enraptured with these books. Being in my mid-twenties, I was curious to know what the big deal about them was. I assumed they must be akin to the Sweet Valley High books from my teen years.

I checked out the second book in the Gossip Girl Series "You Know You Love Me" because it was the only one even REMOTELY available--the rest had hold request after hold request after hold request. Anyway, I eagerly opened the book anticipating something special. Instead, I had to read no further than the second page to get the gist of what these books are about.

In the first chapter, we meet, or get reaquainted with (depending on how many of these things a person has read) Blair, one of the main characters. It is immediately apparent that Blair is condencsending and shallow. The first chapter makes it clear to us that her number one priority is to have the best of everything no matter WHAT the cost and to throw her virginity away as fast as possible. I was sickened.

As I read on, I met the other cast of characters and was equally unimpressed. We have the glorified druggie/god that every girl wants but who is boyfriend to Blair, the queen. We have the rival beauty who makes misbehavior her middle name. We have the adolescent who is seduced by the druggie/god because of the size of her breasts.

Basically, this book (and I imagine the rest of the series) glorifies promiscuity, drugs, maliciousness, and selfishness.

who do you?
I don't think its Blair, whoever the blogger is is way too harsh on her, being harsh on others is easy but on yourself is hard. Personally I think it's Jenny, Kati, or Isabel.
