by Meredith Schorr
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 lifelong 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and romantic—are supposed to come true, but will the story have a happily ever after, or will Kim end up unpublished and all alone?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.
OMG… OMG.. OMG!
I think, I found myself in Kimberly Long’s shoes! The way she thinks about her blog, the reviews she does for the authors, the cover reveals and blog tours, the way she feels guilty over 3-pink champagne flute reviews.. Gosh, Kim Long is basically.. ME. (except for Nicholas and being a novelista part.) After reading this book, I think, I can safely say, WE are kindred spirits.
This isn’t my first Meredith Schorr book. A few months ago, I enjoyed her hearty “nearing milestone age” book, How Do You Know and I told myself I will read the next books that she’s gonna write. And I’m so glad I had this opportunity with Novelista Girl. (Too bad, I wasn’t able to read the first book Blogger Girl)
Kim is a blogger and a budding, promising writer, whose current main goal is to have her book published. She’s sent her book to literary publishers for review and she’s being rejected all the time. Her high school nemesis Hannah is back with a new bestseller book in tow and asks her to put a spotlight on her book in her blog, Pastel is the New Black. And then her co-worker Daneen bitches about her work as a blogger, legal secretary and a writer. And then there’s her boyfriend lawyer hottie Nicholas, who seems to be taking her for granted lately ever since his father suggested he take up higher positions as a lawyer, like being a Director General or maybe a Senator for example.
Despite all the dilemma she’s been having, her loyal friend Bridget is always there for her. Although, Kim thinks her friend also got some issues in the “should I get married or not” department.
Meredith scored another great hit from Kim Long. Novelista Girl is a delectable read, sassy, fun, sweet and hot – all rolled into one! Miss Schorr always keeps me interested with her characters. They were quite real and they remind me of some people I know. I couldn’t help myself chuckling from time to time. Highly recommended to everyone who wants to have a good laugh and a good time. Looking forward to reading more of her books soon!
