I received a review copy
Readers first met sassy Kimberly Long in Blogger Girl, and now the feisty New Yorker is back in a standalone sequel packed with quick wit, friendship, heartache, and, of course, romance.
Kim runs the most popular chick lit book blog on the web, loves playing house with her sexy lawyer boyfriend, Nicholas, and is finally pursuing her life-long dream to become a published author. At first glance, her life is five-pink-champagne-flutes worthy.
But is there more to the story than meets the eye?
After hearing the phrase “chick lit is dead” more times than she’s read Bridget Jones’s Diary, Kim is driven to desperate measures, seeking advice from up-and-coming chick lit author, Hannah Marshak, her high school nemesis and resident “mean girl.” As if Kim doesn’t have enough on her plate balancing her secretarial duties with her blog Pastel is the New Black, shrugging off the growing pile of agent rejections, and keeping her best friend from turning green over Kim’s budding friendship with Hannah, Nicholas is so blinded by his career ambitions, he doesn’t see that their home sweet home could use more than a dash of sugar.
This is the year when all of Kim’s dreams—professional and romantic—are supposed to come true, but will the story have a happily ever after or will Kim end up unpublished and all alone?
This novel can be read as a sequel or as a standalone and is best accompanied by a cocktail, preferably a pink one.
I can’t even tell you how excited I was to read this! I absolutely adore Meredith Schorr and loved Blogger Girl, so when she contacted me about reviewing Novelista Girl, I was incredibly happy! And man, I was not disappointed. I mentioned in my review for Blogger Girl that if you are a blogger, especially book blogger, you need to read this! I still feel the same way, but I know a lot of book bloggers who are authors (raises hand) or who aspire to be, and this book will really be relatable to you. Not only do we follow Kimberly’s journey to become a published author, but of course we get plenty of romance and turbulence with Nicholas, eye-rolling moments with the self-centered Hannah, and plenty of drama yet touching moments with her friend Bridget. Absolutely brilliant chick lit, I couldn’t put it down, and I highly, highly recommend. If you couldn’t tell.
