I recently started reading the gossip girl series and finished the first 6 books in 1 week!
Niki Chick
I think the reason I liked these books was because it was so easy to relate, in some type of way this goes on with my friends and life all the time.

I will keep reading the story, but after this book I just wonder what else can be done with these characters.

Welcome to New York's Upper East Side. The sun is always shining, which makes it another perfect day to shop. Not that any other day would be a bad one. You're The One That I Want, a Gossip Girls novel by Cecily von Ziegesar, is an incredibly well written book that tells the life stories of a high school senior, Blair Waldorf, and all of her Upper East Side friends.

As college applications start to arrive, and the word gets around, gossip builds up as the stakes are raised and friendships are put to the test. For example, the friendship between the threesome that's been together forever, Blair, Serena, and Nate. Ever since the 4th grade Blair has had her heart set on Yale, and even named her new baby sister after the university. Despite these wishes, she completely blew both of her chances to get in, and is losing sleep at night from her nerves. Without her knowing, her on and off boyfriend Nate decided what the heck, and applied to Yale too. Also not even thinking about it was her best friend Serena when she decided to apply. College application day arrives, and Blair and Serena decide to open theirs together. Big mistake. Soon after their friendship will go downhill, but now, once again will they be able to pull it back up?

But hey, who cares about college when you have a love life to look after? Nate and Blair have been dating on and off since anyone can remember, and if you don't think they'll end up married, you're in the minority.

One part of the book that really stuck out to me was when Blair was at Georgetown checking out the college and getting a tour from a girl named Rebecca and her little posse of three other bleached blonde girls that do EVERYTHING together.

I had jumped right into Gossip Girl #6, after finishing #5 "i like it like that". I had high expectations after the hard-to-put-down last book in the series.

It started off at a good pace, with Vanessa starting her new movie, Blair, Serena and Nate going through the troubles of college. Dan being his emo self, trying to win V back while enjoying his college acceptance. Then Jenny, who is off trying to become a model. Then the book started to fall, about half way through.

Blair had acted not quite as I would have expected, moping around because of her wait listing into Yale. While I felt like von Ziegesar had lost what she had with the characters V and D. They seemed to of acted out of character with how they had been written before. Doing things I didn't feel quite comfortable seeing them do. Jenny was just running around wanting to be a model, while Nate and Serena seemed like the only characters to really stay in character. By the end, it seemed like V's movie had lost it's purpose and the characters had no where else to go.

Overall, it was an enjoyable read. I will keep reading the story, but after this book I just wonder what else can be done with these characters. Nate and Blair have finally done -it- and the final college decisions need to be made. I'm interested to see where von Ziegesar takes these characters next, and hope she reclaims herself with book #7.

I recently started reading the gossip girl series and finished the first 6 books in 1 week!

I really enjoyed this book as I did all the others.

The best thing about this book is Nate and Blair finally "do it" but i couldn't help but feel sorry for Blair because no matter how hard she tries she always comes in second best to Serena. She and Serena both apply to a number of Colleges and Serena gets into all of them (including Yale) despite her bad grades and the fact that she got kicked out of boarding school where as Blair gets into one school and is waitlisted at Yale which totally breaks her heart. Nate gets into Yale as well and sleeps with Brigid his Brown interviewer so as you can see Blair is not the lucky one in this book.

I would definetly recomend this book to girls who are just above twelve but I suggest you read the first five books first.

I've been reading Gossip Girl novels since I was about twelve years old, and I have to admit that they're my guilty pleasure. Some feels that the books might be a bad influence on younger kids, and I agree to an certain degree. Parents should know how their child might be able to handle certain books. I had been reading books by V.C. Andrews that are worse then this. My mom bought me a book and said that this looked more interesting. For me the Gossip Girl books take me away from my simple lifestyle into something more extravagent and the author is not encouraging their behavior. The things written about are basically realistic and really happening, maybe not in the exact way, but lots of people you wouldn't expect are getting involved in the same things. Personally I love it, but I know that I can handle reading it without being influenced by the "negative things."

Format: Paperback
This sixth installment in Cecily von Ziegesar's Gossip Girl series wraps up a lot of storylines for Blair. Finally we learn which schools all the prepsters get into, Blair and Nate get together, and her new half-sister is born. Can life among New York's wealthiest teens get any better?

Actually, yes --- at least for Blair. She does NOT get into Yale. Readers will not be surprised at this after sitting in on two disastrous interviews for that esteemed institution in previous books, but Blair is crushed at being wait-listed. Her "safety" school, Georgetown, seems tacky during her visit there. Serena, of course, gets accepted everywhere and now has to decide among Harvard, Yale, Brown and a host of other places, or if she wants to take a year off and try to act or model. She also picks up admirers at each place when she visits. Clearly, these books are more fantasy than reality for readers.

Nate gets into Yale as well, and is courted by a few schools for their lacrosse teams. Blair stops speaking to him and Serena for a while because of their acceptances. Meanwhile, Daniel decides to move in with Vanessa (only to have another roomie join them and drive them crazy) and Jenny tries modeling --- with mixed results.

While it may seem that plots from previous books in the series are being revisited, the designer details of clothing and New York life will continue to lure in readers.
