Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gossip Girl: Only In Your Dreams Another very good book of the Gossip Girl Series. Its fulll of drama, but some of it is clearing up, which is good. more questions are answered and more questions are brought up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gossip Girl: Only In Your Dreams This was a pretty dramatic and crazy book like the others. It was well worth the read, but it was different, and shows the characters are growing up!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some things never change... The ninth book in the Gossip Girls series continues following everyone’s favourite spoiled characters around some new locations. Serena is stuck in the city filming her first movie, but Nate is in the Hamptons working for his lacrosse coach, and Blair is off in London chasing around her boyfriend, Lord Marcus. As is usually the case, the characters can’t stay away from each other and of course end up meeting each other along the way. It makes the reader wonder whether the characters will be able to separate for college, which will come in the next few books. At the same time, this book is more of what readers love about the Gossip Girl series: it is catty, and childish, and completely self indulgent, just like the characters it follows. It is a guilty pleasure, something everyone needs once in awhile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Darn Good!! Since this is the ninth novel, I was anxiously waiting for it to come out. After reading it, I thought there were a bit too many conflicts, and Blair was still plotting out revenge on Nate. Come on! A cheater's a cheater, no matter what you do to or with them, even if they are oober-cute! Already anxious and impatient for the tenth novel!! Hope to read it soon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gossip Girl - You Know You Love It! Cecily von Ziegesar is back with another juicy addition to the widely popular Gossip Girl series. We follow the young and beautiful around New York and London, hanging on their every move. Blair spends time with her new love, Lord Marcus, across the Atlantic, but is there trouble in her picture-perfect movie fantasy? If not, then who is Camilla? Vanessa works hard for a hot filmmaker, hoping to bring a different side to his rendition of Breakfast at Tiffany's .. titled Breakfast at Fred's, after everyone’s beloved diner in the world's favourite upscale department store. The big movie is starring first time film star Serena, who we learn isn't so good at everything after all. Dan gets a job at a bookstore where he meets a certain blonde-haired beauty who takes his eyes off of his own girlfriend, getting him in way over his head. And Nate, ooh Nate. In the Hamptons working for his Lacrosse coach. While his dad was furious that he was not getting his diploma in June, this forced, outdoor labour has given him the most wonderful tan. Year-round Hamptons girl Tawny has noticed. Has Nate finally found a girl that’s not too clingy but not too carefree? Read and see! Gossip Girl - you know you love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I think I am completely able to say that this was an amazing book. But lets face it all of Ceicly von Ziegesar's books are just down right fabulous. When I get these books I am entranced, I cannot put the thing down. Now this is no winning entry or anything I just wanted everyone to know what an extremly great read these are. These books give you a chance to escape from your own reality to the reality of someone else without all the flying people and things. They are great and I love the scandel adn betrayel because that is so much like real life for girls.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not her best When I began to read this book I thought, this is kinda boring for one of her books, but it will get better. This was the only case that I have ever encountered in a book when it didn't get better. There was absolutely no climax. I love the rest of her books..they are amongst my favourites, but this didn't even come close. It was a big let from Cecily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from “Absolutely Great!” OMG!!!! I love this book and of course the entire series. I recomend to anyone who hasn't read these books yet to read them, and i'de start from the first otherwise you'll miss important stuff!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointment Was I the only one who thought that this Gossip Girl was a bust? I mean, what attracted us to this addictive series in the first place? Was it the memorably selfish and remarkably unintelligent characters or the mystery of who is gossip girl and the drama of keeping up with so many protaginists? The glitz and glam works for a while, but then you tire of it and you're left with some very selfish characters who can't keep the plot going for more than a chapter. Very saddening, but i will not give up hope that this author will remember the core and mystery of Gossip Girl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Book Oh gosh, this book is ah-mazing. This book is about Blair going to England and then coming bak cuz it seems like her lord was not giving enough attetion to herr. (awwww poor babyy) On the other hand, Serena is starring in a movie (as if she needs to be a star) and i heard she's having some difficulties in memorizing lines... Now Dahlin' Nate, he got punished and had to work for his coach..and still manages to find a gf!!! I dont wanna spoil ur ending, so buy this book and find out, cuz its totally worth it!!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OMG! I WAS SO WRONG!!!! I am the Kayla who wrote the very first review for this book, I have to eat my words. This book was the best in the series....so far!

I cannot wait for the next book, and I cannot wait to find out who Gossip Girl is......Execellent work Cecily, keep it up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have not yet read... The new gossip girl book....i cannot say i am overly eager too either. The last 4 gossip girl Novels have been terrible. The author writes about the same thing OVER and OVER again and i am getting very tired of it. I hope to god this book is different or i will drop this series. I also hope this is either the last or second to last book. It's not all bad though, i can't wait to find out what happens to Blair and her new BF.... I hope this book changes my mind about the series....but i am not keeping my hopes up.
