All I Want Is Everything
Cecily von Ziegesar
Synopsis by Barnes and Noble:
It's Christmastime and Blair and Serena are best friends again and up to their old tricks -- partying hard and breaking hearts from Park Avenue to the Caribbean. Blair's mom and Cyrus are having their honeymoon in Salt Key. And when school lets out for the holiday, Blair, Serena, Aaron, and company head down there to blow off steam after their midterm exams. In between Piña Coladas and topless sunbathing, Blair and Serena plot revenge on super-jerk Chuck Bass. Everyone jets back to NYC for Serena's New Year's party, during which Nate and Blair may or may not finally go all the way, and Serena may or may not be discovered to be the secret fling of Hollywood's hottest young leading man.
I think I am beginning to sound redundant... I LOVE Gossip Girl, this book was amazing. Cecily von Ziegesar is able to create new ideas that work well in each story. I enjoyed the premise of this book. Blare and Serena are friends again and that was a major delight for me! These characters are very likeable but also very hateable at the same time. I felt myself constantly getting caught up in the emotions of the characters, I also found myself feeling embarassed for them and sometimes even ashamed of them. I enjoy the lightness of these books, they are fun to read and do not revolve around extremely serious issues. The plot flowed smoothly but always kept you wanting more and on the edge of your seat. The book is a must read for anyone who is anyone!
I would recommend this book to anyone who has read Gossip Girl. It would make a fun vacation read or even a fun Christmas read!
