Summary: Welcome to New York City’s Upper East Side, where my friends and I live in luxe Fifth Avenue apartments and attend Manhattan’s most exclusive private schools. We’re smart, we’ve inherited classic good looks, we wear fantastic clothes, and we know how to party. We can’t help it-we were born this way. (Goodreads)
I know what you are thinking. Why the hell I read Gossip Girls books when I could just binge-watching the TV Show? And you know what? I did binge-watching the show, but then I just can’t stop thinking about it. So here we are, 416 pages later.
It Had To Be You took place before Serena went to the boarding school. We got to know the full story how Nate cheated on Blair. Or why Chuck acted the way he was with Serena in the earlier season 1 in the TV Show.
It’s nice to see those blank being filled.
There are so many details that were different from the TV Show. But I guess that’s alright. It wasn’t major or anything.
Also book-Blair is lot nicer than TV-Blair. I’m still not used to that.
