I'd seen the book around, thought seriously about getting it, but decided against it since I usually don't like a lot of chick lit. It was on sale one day though, so I just got it for the heck of it and finally read it. I am thankful I did. Even though its just as cheesy as most other chick lit books, I loved it. Probably because the element of gossip. It was addicting, and as the jacket said, it has the effect of gossip itself. You can get involved in the world guilt-free. Following the lives of the Upper East Siders and all the scandalous situations they find themselves in, this book is sure to entertain. It's hilarious and the anonymous gossip girl herself is a treat.
Blair and Vanessa are probably my favorite characters throughout the book. To be honest, I think - and this is my only complaint - that the other characters are pretty dull, airhead types, that are lacking personality.
