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.

#dangerouslyinlove

A captivating read is a must have while trying to catch a tan (or in my case a burn). Poolside, by the beach, or in your room, a book is the perfect way to get lost in another world.

This was the first one off of my summer list and I could not put it down until it was finished! The Pact by Jodi Picoult is a novel about a possible suicide pact between two teenagers and the scary depth of their love. A slightly frightening, young love story that makes us question how well we understand relationships, especially amongst teenagers, and just how much stress is needed to break bonds that had seemed to be infinite.

I usually hate love stories. Anything that ends so perfectly just never seems real to me. With The Pact, it was exactly the opposite; a story that started perfect goes on to crumble. I feel like we all know a couple that is this connected or at least seems this perfect, and for me I definitely had a few people in mind while reading. It amazed me to think that two people can love each other to such an extent that it is dangerous. To see how their families deal with the tragedy that unfolds was the moving part, leaving me dying to find out answers.

Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult always gets an A+  in my book, but her fifth novel takes you on an emotional roller coaster of a life time. She creates suspense and tension on sensitive, but real life topics. It’s amazing that she can understand what a seventeen year old male would be thinking as a women in her 40′s. I highly recommend her novels as they are fiction but not so far fetched from our own experiences. And for those who aren’t so big on reading…. four of her books have been made into television movies!

 

 Just don’t forget the sunblock ;)
