Readers first met sassy Kimberly Long in Blogger Girl, and now the feisty New Yorker is back in a sequel packed with quick wit, friendship, heartache, and, of course, romance.
Kim runs the most popular chick lit book blog on the web, loves playing house with her sexy lawyer boyfriend, Nicholas, and is finally pursuing her lifelong dream to become a published author. At first glance, her life is five-pink-champagne-flutes worthy.
But is there more to the story than meets the eye?
After hearing the phrase “chick lit is dead” more times than she’s read Bridget Jones’s Diary, Kim is driven to desperate measures, seeking advice from up-and-coming chick lit author, Hannah Marshak, her high school nemesis and resident “mean girl.” As if Kim doesn’t have enough on her plate balancing her secretarial duties with her blog Pastel Is the New Black, shrugging off the growing pile of agent rejections, and keeping her best friend from turning green over Kim’s budding friendship with Hannah, Nicholas is so blinded by his career ambitions, he doesn’t see that their home sweet home could use more than a dash of sugar.
This is the year when all of Kim’s dreams—professional and romantic—are supposed to come true, but will the story have a happily ever after, or will Kim end up unpublished and all alone?
This novel can be read as a sequel or as a standalone and is best accompanied by a cocktail, preferably a pink one.
(Blurb from Goodreads)
It was easy to fall right back into book blogger Kimmie Long’s life. Kim has decided to go with her dream and pursue her writing. She wrote a book and is on the search for an agent to accept it. Her fingers are crossed that her dream agent will say yes, but she submits to others just in case. Big changes happen with Nicholas; he wants her to move in with him! But soon after she does, they seem to drift apart.
Again, it was easy to lose myself in Kim’s fictional world. I love how the story is about a book blogger turned author; and I think many other book bloggers will enjoy that aspect too. I know of a few, and bet there are more book bloggers that dream that one day they will be best selling authors themselves.
I like the struggles that Kim has in this book and not just with Nicholas but with her friends and co workers too. I know it may seem strange that I liked the conflict, but without conflict there is no book, you know? So all of the challenges that Kim had to face in the novel made it that much better.
Overall, Novelista Girl is a great chick lit novel to cuddle up with this winter.
