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.
I can't believe that I haven't read this book sooner!
MUST READ Chick Lit book for everyone!
Let me first state that this book, in some ways, is close to my life! I am a paralegal in a law firm and I have my own up and coming book blog!
Kimberly Long is obsessed with Chick Lit, so much so that a few years back she created an amazing blog dedicated to it, Pastel is the New Black! She is constantly in contact with authors and publishers who are dying to work with her and have their book be the next that she reviews.
She has an amazing boss, Rob, who allows her to review, read and write book reviews while on the job as long as her work is taken care of! (I do the same as well, I am currently half way done with my Monday at work and blogging away).
Then he joins the firm...
She can't get him out of her mind and hopes that each and every day they have some reason to converse. Does he have a girlfriend? Would he ever be interested in dating her?
As if her life wasn't crazy enough, then her high school reunion rolls around. And so does - Hannah Marshak, the evil girl who used to torment her in high school.
And if that was bad enough, Hannah is releasing a chick lit novel and wants Kimberly to review it!
So many twists and turns and ups and downs, Blogger Girl will have you wanting to read until the early hours of each morning till you are done!
I would pair this amazing book with Girly Girl Merlot!
MY RATINGI give Blogger Girl a five wine glasses rating! It had me coming back for more around each and every twist and turn.
