Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar

So the first thing you should know is that I love the TV series (I know, I know, underage drinking, bad behavior, blah blah). While the TV series is not exactly the same as the story, it was similar enough that I felt like I was watching reruns. It had the same flippant tone, catch-phrases (“you know you love me”), high fashion, and overly mature teenagers. I wish I had read the book first, because I pretty much knew all of the characters and pictured the actresses/actors while reading even when the written descriptions did not match. All of the plot twists were ruined and any shock or awe I was supposed to feel was nonexistent. Though I can usually tolerate watching a movie/TV show after reading the book, I’m not sure it works so well the other way around.
