Cringey, predictable and dragged on. ( )

Summer is a time when I inevitably turn to reading books from the chick-lit genre as a refresher from Fall (which is a time for classic literature), Winter (high fantasy), and Spring (teen/urban fantasy and graphic novels). It's been a few years since I read anything by Weisberger, so I'm a few novels behind, so I was glad to step back into the glamourous world of (semi) fabulous New York women. Since the protagonist (Brooke Alter) is married and the plot revolves around marital issues I found this novel hard to get into initially, but I was definitely hooked by the halfway point! ( )

Not too bad. Perfect quick read in between heavier choices.... ( )

Another quick read! I read this one in less than two days. It really made me stop and think about the way I feel towards celebrities and gossip magazines. ( )

I hate giving a book I've read a one star rating, mostly because if it wasn't a book for school, there is obviously a reason why I decided to finish the book. I still don't understand why I never put this book down (well, stopped listening to the audiobook).

I usually don't read books that can mainly be described as "chick-lit" but for some reason this book caught my eye so I thought, why not go out of your comfort zone and give it a try. I regret EVERYTHING!! I feel horrible, I really do because this is the first time I have ever read anything written by Weisberger and I hated it so much! A lot of people on the site say The Devil Wears Prada is a lot better but I have no desire reading the book after watching the film (I know shame on me).

My main problem with the book is how negative the author views being married to someone famous when you yourself are not. I think the story would have been just a little bit more relatable to me if Brooke actually enjoyed and experienced some of the perks of fame because no matter what, Brooke had a negative view on things.

I also couldn't stand Julian. We barely get an idea of who he actually is besides this amazing musician and how handsome he is. Oh, also that he comes from rich parents who aren't supportive of his career UNTIL he makes it big. I felt like this was such a stereotype of people with rich parents. I was almost expecting Will Smith to drop in and sing "Parent's just don't understand" during the scenes involving his parents.

There are like multiple plots in the story, none I can really keep track of and characters just seem to pop up and just vanish. I found Brooke's best friend really annoying. A lot of the people Brooke talks to at parties or award shows start to run together and I can't remember names. I got really confused when Kaylee (is that her name?), who seemed like she was going to be an important character because she's mentioned a lot in the first half of the book just disappears along with Brooke's job there. Brooke states several times how important she is to her yet once she stops working at the school, she doesn't anymore? I felt that way through the whole book about everything. The book had a way of contradicting itself that it got so boring.

The last thing that bothered me was Brooke and Julian's relationship. He cheats and she throws him out, yet she realizes she loves him and he decides he will be able to balance his career and marriage. Yup, sounds so realistic. I felt the author didn't know if she wanted Brooke to be a strong independent woman or one who always stands by her man. Either way, I was bored with the split personality and wish I could get these hours back I spent while reading (actually listening to) this book.

Weisberger has obviously written better books but I now realize I need to stay away from anything she writes because it's not for me. If you want to test the waters of chick-lit, leave this book on the self. I hate saying it, but this is for readers who don't mind the typical chick lit stereotypes and predictable plots.
