Not Shakespeare. C’mon, it’s summer! Time for crazy nail polish and sunning by the pool. There is nothing we love like some good beach trash in the sun. And until we write our own beach read (have a really strong first chapter…), all we have is to enjoy the antics of fellow fun loving, wine drinking, PR girls, just trying to find love and make an honest living in a crooked world.
This is what’s on the list for vaca:
Last Night at the Chateau Marmont, Lauren Weisberger
Not out until May 27 (this is a faux cover), the premise is that “Two college sweethearts are living a happy, rather ordinary life in New York, but the tables are turned when he’s discovered by a Sony exec and their worlds are turned upside down. Soon they are holidaying in the Hamptons and attending every glitzy party in town. But the trappings of this elite lifestyle mean our heroine must face the wrath of the US press….”
Why? Anything by Lauren Weisberger, we will read. Thank you Devil Wears Prada.
The Carrie Diaries, Candace Bushnell
We all know about a little lady called Carrie Bradshaw…”Before Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw was a small town girl who knew she wanted more. She’s ready for real life to start, but first she must navigate her senior year of high school”
Why? Can’t get enough SATC, and perhaps a little more innocent version will be a refreshing change.
Hush, Kate White
From the Editor-n-Chief of Cosmo, Aunt eDoll got us hooked on these murder mysteries. ”When fabulous New Yorker Lake Warren learns that her husband, Jack, is suing for full custody of their two kids four months after their separation, she’s pretty certain that things can’t get any worse. But the morning after a one-night stand, Lake discovers that things can indeed become worse—they can become deadly…”
Why? Have read every single Kate White mystery, the Bailey Weggins series is amaaaaaazing, and we’re exciting to meet Lake!
Total Waste of Makeup, Kim Gruenenfelder
From our FAVORITE beach read of last year, Misery Loves Cabernet, here is Kim Gruenenfelder’s first book. ”Charlize “Charlie” Edwards certainly knows, in theory, what it takes to lead a successful and happy life. She has glamorous and loyal friends who accompany her to the hottest clubs in town. And she works as the personal assistant to Drew Stanton, Hollywood’s sexiest movie star. But she’s also turning 30, chronically single, and faced with serving as maid of honor at her younger sister’s wedding.”
Why? LA + Career Woman + Failing Love Life = Too fun for words.
