I’m a huge fan of chick lit, but I particularly enjoy reading them in the summer. They are perfect to read on the plane or on vacation because of their light and breezy nature.
I just finished reading Last Night at Chateau Marmont. It is the follow up novel by Lauren Weisberger, who wrote The Devil Wears Prada (another one of my favorites).
Last Night tells the story of a young, married couple dealing with the husband’s skyrocket into fame (he’s a singer). They are having trouble adjusting to his newfound fame and the constant travel he is doing.
I would probably rate the book at 3 out of 5. It fell flat at some times and you could predict the ending from a mile away. I did however enjoy the pop culture references (ie Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood), the peek into the glamorous life of a celebrity, and a reference to the TV show Friday Night Lights.
My chick lit must reads would be: The Confessions of a Shopaholic series (especially books 1 through 3) by Sophie Kinsella, Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes, The Devil Wears Prada, and the Something Borrowed/Something Blue series by Emily Griffin.
What have you been reading this summer? What are your favorite chick lit books? I’d be interested to hear about them, as I’m always looking for good books to read!
Hope you all had a happy Monday!
