5/5 for this one! This book took “mean boss” to the next level! The things our poor main character, Andi, has to go through are just awful! Andi gets the job that a million girls would die for, but once she has it she discovers it‘s not everything she hopes it will be. I loved her journey in this book. She is not a perfect character, but I liked her for her imperfections. I got to see a side of the fashion industry that I‘ve never seen before.

Weisberger has a fun sense of humor throughout, but I think it‘s just not meant to be my type of book. I enjoyed the movie quite a bit, but I could probably attribute that to my entire lack of fashion knowledge, and all the name dropping in the book meant literally nothing to me. It worked better as a visual story for me, but still well-written and worth my actually wanting to pick it up again to finish.
My first book for #TBRDeckofCards!

Soubhiville I‘ve had this on my TBR forever, a gift from a friend. But I‘m pretty certain I‘d feel the same as you- the movie was fun but I‘m not sure there‘s any reason for me to read the book. 2y
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Soubhiville I think Streep and Hathaway definitely improved the depth of the characters, especially Streep‘s Miranda. In the movie I feel like you see a glimpse of a human side of her, which just makes her a sadder and even more despicable character in the long run than the two-dimensional super-bitch depicted in the book. If you haven‘t felt an overpowering urge to read it by now, I think it‘s safe to say it‘s not worth it. 😅 2y

Here‘s hoping I actually get some reading in. 🤪 Work is in upheaval, I don‘t know up from down anymore. I haven‘t read at all the last day or two. I‘m definitely looking forward to the weekend but I‘ll be sticking with the modest goal of finishing the tagged book and getting as far in Forces of Nature as I can.

Funny, sassy, and a lot of sarcasm, the Devil Wears Prada follows a young optimistic college grad who is dying for a start in New York journalism career but finds herself the personal assistant to the editor in chief of Runway Magazine. Hopefully from what everyone has told her, if she makes it through one year working for Miranda Priestly, she'll be able to snag one of the jobs she really wants thanks to the name and reputation of her boss.

1. This sounds very sad but never ever got dressed up for Halloween, wasn‘t such a big think in the U.K. when I was growing up but my favourite fancy dress was when I went as a devil as a young adult?

2. Not particularly Halloween but love Which Witch by Eva Ibbotson.

I did not like Andy. At all. I thought she was passive aggressive when she would do mean, obnoxious things to get back at Runway and Miranda Priestly. She was always defensive when her parents, Alex, and the best friend tried to talk to her.

However, I know I will read the sequel Revenge Wears Prada. Thank goodness, I love Anne Hathaway. I'm watching the movie on my day off.

I‘m somehow weirdly entertained when I like the movie better than the book maybe because it seldom happens for me. In the movie Meryl, Anne, and Emily embodied both comedy and empathy for their Miranda, Andrea, and Emily. In the book, Andrea‘s constant whining got old way before the book resolved.

This book was just the ticket. It has the same fun vibe as Crazy Rich Asians with the right hint of drama to prevent it from being complete fluff. I imagine it would make a good beach read.

🎶 Stairway to Heaven because of the first verse.
There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
Oh oh oh oh and she's buying a stairway to heaven

I kept waiting for this book to get better but the same scenario kept playing out over and over with slightly different details. This is a rare day when I say the movie was better.
Book 11 for 2019

Happy Saturday! It's 5 o'clock somewhere, right? 😏🍷

I just started this book since Lucas bought me When Life Gives you Lulu Lemons... and I'm not sure how I feel about book Andrea. This is one of my favorite movies of all time (literally wrote a college essay on it), and in the movie Andrea was a strong, independent person. So far in the book she seems like a fumbling idiot. 😕 Has anyone else read this & seen the movie? Thoughts?

Tera0707 This is one of those rare cases where the movie is better than the book, in my opinion. (It‘s one of my and my daughter‘s favorite movies too!) 4y

Andy isn't ready for the hustle & bustle of the fashion industry when she goes to work for the devil herself, Miranda, at prestigious Runway Magazine. She runs all over #NewYorkCity doing more & more crazy errands for Miranda as her assistant, all in the hopes of someday becoming a published writer. Can she take the pressure? Will she ever become an established writer?

Whilst I have seen the movie a number of times, this is the first time I‘ve gotten round to reading the book and it did not disappoint. Witty and clever, a very enjoyable read. You really sympathise for Andrea and although she isn‘t perfect, you can understand why she is so tolerant.

Finally read this book after dragging a used copy across three countries. I've a soft spot for the movie (Tucci 💘) but put off the book as it's not my genre. But it's actually quite fun! I do think the plot points that were altered for the movie actually helped, especially regarding Andy's final interactions with Miranda but the relationships she had with small side characters in the book are nice. #mommyreads #booksonthebigscreen

I pushed through because I hate not finishing after a certain point but this is one of those unexpected cases where the movie was better. Andrea is an insufferable protagonist. Miranda‘s demands were at times unreasonable, but not taking personal calls while at work? That‘s called reality. She was so annoying
