You could opt with jewelry or headbands from the show for your favorite Gossip Girl fan, but what we’re secretly hoping for is the original books. Specifically the Gossip Girl Boxed Set
of the first three in the Gossip Girl series: Gossip Girl, You Know You Love Me and All I Want is Everything. What’s better than reading about the characters we have known and loved for two seasons? There are a few key differences in the book versus the series (no spoilers here. This is off the back of the books):
1. Nate is a major stoner, which makes a whole lot of sense, now that we think about it. Guess some things just don’t play well on TV.
2. The Humphreys live on the Upper West Side, not in Dumbo. What would the show be like if instead of all those sweeping views of the Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan it had shots of Zabar’s and Fairway? Good call on the director’s part.
3. Jenny is described as “busty.” Seriously? Can you imagine little Taylor Momsen with a set of double D’s?
