In the short amount of beach time I was able to squeeze in this weekend while on the Jersey shore, aside from obtaining too many unwanted freckles, I managed to get through quite a bit of this fabulous sequel. If you’ve read or seen the movie “The Devil Wears Prada,” I’ve personally seen it more times than I can count on two hands, than “Revenge Wears Prada,” is something you have to read to find out what happens to those beloved characters.
It is not very complex writing and doesn’t take much to read, making it the perfect light beach book. I always find the whole out-of-reach hottie becoming true love theme to be enticing, and I love to hear some good monster-in-law gossip, so I’d say this is some chick-lit worth reading!
It takes place a decade later from when Andy left Runway, and shows how she, along with her BFF Emily (yes the crazy neurotic assistant from “Devil”, ironic right!?) now have their own high end wedding magazine. While trying to kick-start the business, Andy falls for Max, a man who’s known to be a womanizer and finds him to be quite charming. Everything seems golden until Andy reads a letter from Max’s mother on the morning of their wedding day written to him about her. It sends her world flying out of place and makes her question everything up until then….
The gal behind the series : Lauren Weisberger
Lauren Weisberger wrote her first novel, “The Devil Wears Prada”, in 2003 from her own experiences assisting editor-in-chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour. She is 36 years old and currently lives in NYC with her husband and 2 dogs. Lauren has written 3 more novels after that, 2 being New York times best-sellers, and her most recent one “Revenge wears Prada” being a best seller as well. I think her ability to pick topics for fiction novels that she has significant real life experiences with make her writing so successful.
