The Devil Wears Prada x2

There’s something about reading chick-lit on the beach that is just oh-so-sweet. If you’re
like me, you’ve been trading and recommending books that your friends and co-workers “just have to read” during their vacation. Here’s another book to add to your summer reading list…

Nearly ten years ago Lauren Weisberger released her best-selling book, The Devil Wears Prada which was later turned into the blockbuster hit with the same name, starring Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep. Shortly after the movie’s release, girls everywhere (or maybe that was just me…) began imagining themselves in the world of fashion magazines.

Well, in case you missed it, yesterday the sequel was released. Was I the only one who didn’t realize there was even going to be a sequel? Revenge Wears Prada meets back up with Andy ten years after she quit her job at Runway magazine.

So, where is she now?

(From the book description on Amazon)
bookAlmost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job “a million girls would die for” working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine—a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a high-end bridal magazine. The Plunge has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her
heart’s content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro. Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple. Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma’s a bitch. The morning of her wedding, Andy can’t shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread. Andy realizes that nothing—not her husband, nor her beloved career—is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago—and directly into the path of the devil herself. . .

Personally, I can’t wait to check out Weisberger’s newest novel, but if you’re still not sure you can check out an excerpt of the book, here.

    There were some really bad reviews out there on this one. I got a backup with this one just to make sure I got my chick lit fix, turns out I got 2 gems! Loved this one, and my other was by Christina George, The Publicist, thepublicistnovel.com. They were both perfect reads to get into summer!
