About Cecily von Ziegesar

Cecily von Zeigesar attended herself one of the smart private schools in Manhatten, New York, and much of the tales told in 'Gossip Girl' as a result ring with great authenticity. She is currently writing further titles in the Gossip Girl series. Bloomsbury will be publishing the series at regular intervals throughout 2003 with a high profile, energetic and suitably cutting-edge marketing campaign. This deliciously catty and engrossing series will be the spicy vanguard for Bloomsbury pushing the boundaries into young adult fiction.

Our customer reviews

Also reviewed on my blog, The Vintage Bookworm. (www.vintagebookworm.blogspot.com) This is going to be a hard review to write! I started getting on Netflix about a month or two ago and I saw that the Gossip Girl TV show was on there and I got excited! I hadn't watched the show since the second season and had never seen the first season and I really wanted to catch up. So I started watching from the beginning and got majorly hooked. SERIOUSLY hooked. It's all I could think about and I'd devour at least six episodes a night. Most of the time more! I got caught up before it came back on, but when I was caught up and was waiting around for it to come back on I decided I wanted to read the books. I couldn't find the first book in my library, but last week I finally did and was so very happy. I heard that there are a lot of things different between the show and book, but I really had no idea what I was in for! There is so much that is different, but at the same time you see small or big parts taken out of the book and thrown into the show. Which is awesome. I'm still getting used to the differences, so that's why I gave it three starts. Don't get me wrong, I really did enjoy reading this book. I am definitely going to pick up the second book soon, but it's just so weird. Do you know what I mean? And at times I got annoyed at the writing, it's hard to explain. Overall, this is one of my new guilty pleasures. It really was an enjoyable, fast read. I do hope it gets better soon though. Not really sure what else to say about this book. But if you are a Gossip Girl fanatic, I would definitely read them. But beware of the differences! At times its HUGE.show more
