What happens when your high school nemesis becomes the shining star in a universe you pretty much saved? Book blogger Kimberly Long is about to ﬁnd out. A chick lit enthusiast since the ﬁrst time she read “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” Kim, with her blog, “Pastel is the New Black,” has worked tirelessly by night to keep the genre alive, and help squash the claim that “chick lit is dead” once and for all. Not bad for a woman who by day ekes out a meager living as a pretty, and pretty-much-nameless, legal secretary in a Manhattan law ﬁrm. While Kim’s day job holds no passion for her, the handsome (and shaving-challenged) associate down the hall is another story. Yet another story is that Hannah Marshak, one of her most-hated high school classmates, has now popped onto the chick lit scene with a hot new book that’s turning heads—and pages—across the land. It’s also popped into Kim’s inbox – for review. With their ten-year high school reunion drawing near, Kim’s coming close to combustion over the hype about Hannah’s book. And as everyone around her seems to be moving on and up, she begins to question whether being a “blogger girl” makes the grade in her off-line life.
Blurb from Goodreads
When I saw the title of this book I knew I had to read it. I mean, come on, I’m a blogger girl myself. I was never really into chick lit, but I find myself being drawn to it lately. Or maybe it’s just because the chick lit books I’m reading lately are better books. Either way, this was the second Meredith Schorr book I’ve read (I still need to write a review for the 1st) and I really enjoyed it.
Besides being a blogger myself, I didn’t really relate to Kim, the main character, at all. But that didn’t bother me. After all, I like to read to escape, not to read about myself. And Kim was a confident, likeable character to read about.
Schorr pulled me into the story with ease, a story in which I read in two nights. I have a five year old and one year old twins, so take that into consideration. I don’t waste my limited free time. Honestly, the last thing I thought after reading this book was contacting her book manager to say send me all of Schorr’s books for review. 🙂
