When Life Gives You Lululemons
When Life Gives You Lululemons | Lauren Weisberger
New York Times bestselling author Lauren Weisberger returns with a novel starring one of her favorite characters from The Devil Wears Prada—Emily Charlton, first assistant to Miranda Priestly, now a highly successful image consultant who’s just landed the client of a lifetime. Welcome to Greenwich, CT, where the lawns and the women are perfectly manicured, the Tito’s and sodas are extra strong, and everyone has something to say about the infamous new neighbor. Let’s be clear: Emily Charlton, Miranda Priestly’s ex-assistant, does not do the suburbs. She’s working in Hollywood as an image consultant to the stars, but recently, Emily’s lost a few clients. She’s hopeless with social media. The new guard is nipping at her heels. She needs a big opportunity, and she needs it now. Karolina Hartwell is as A-list as they come. She’s the former face of L’Oreal. A mega-supermodel recognized the world over. And now, the gorgeous wife of the newly elected senator from New York, Graham, who also has his eye on the presidency. It’s all very Kennedy-esque, right down to the public philandering and Karolina’s arrest for a DUI—with a Suburban full of other people’s children. Miriam is the link between them. Until recently she was a partner at one of Manhattan’s most prestigious law firms. But when Miriam moves to Greenwich and takes time off to spend with her children, she never could have predicted that being stay-at-home mom in an uber-wealthy town could have more pitfalls than a stressful legal career. Emily, Karolina, and Miriam make an unlikely trio, but they desperately need each other. Together, they’ll navigate the social landmines of life in America’s favorite suburb on steroids, revealing the truths—and the lies—that simmer just below the glittering surface. With her signature biting style, Lauren Weisberger offers a dazzling look into another sexy, over-the-top world, where nothing is as it appears.

This is a pretty funny read so far. There's some overused stereotypes of the skinny housewife, badly behaved rich people, etc. but it's a good mindless read if you need one of those. I just wish Target would stop putting the unnecessary stickers on the cover. #FirstWorldProblems

Also, I'm subbing at a STEM elementary today, and the kids are freaked out by my Zipfizz. They asked what experiment I did to turn my water orange. 🤣

Not my usual type of book but this was delightful. I can't help but wish for a movie sequel since Devil Wears Prada is... iconic.

Now what to read next... 🤔🤔🤔

Had to put #Becoming on hold because the cold I caught has my eyes too watery to read, so I listened to Lululemons instead. I worried that a name-brand book isn‘t for me, but I got into it & now I‘m not sick any more. Just kidding; I‘m still sick, but I have a new bottle of off-brand cold medicine & another audiobook on #Libby.

This is the perfect, salacious chick-lit novel when you need a mindless, funny read. There are laugh-out-loud, as well as plenty of omigod moments.

There are also plenty of vapid characters, but it's on brand with the image Weisberger tries to create.

Never before has a book made me question if my yoga pants needed an upgrade...more references to plastic surgery and philandering husbands than my average read, but entertaining nonetheless. I can't help but see Emily Charlton as Emily Blunt, and her bitchy sass is still satisfying. The end raises a few eyebrows with one trivial concern in the spoilers below. #mommyreads #chicklit #ebook

I kinda wanted to surprise myself & like this but there was just so much that I found problematic that I did well to finish it. Eye roll and cringe were my most frequent actions whilst reading it. I can see how it could be entertaining - it's easy reading, undemanding escapism, all sass & snark writing, but ... it's a No from me. And the sex toy party chapter was gratuitous titillation that brought nothing to the narrative - just cringe.

My train book for the week... other passengers must think I'm nuts, I've chuckled way too many times to only be 38 pages deep.

This was a fun book to listen to as summer reading season ends. Laura Benatti was a great narrator too; she really acted out the parts. Carolina, the model, was the character whose storyline most interested me. I couldn't really remember these characters from The Devil Wears Prada, but the book was good on its own.

I'm only about 10% into this audiobook. It has been so long since I've read or see The Devil Wears Prada that I can't really tell how this one fits in with the first book. But it seems like a good break from the heavier books I've been reading lately. #audiobooks

A "trendy" story for spring/summer '18. Not worth buying but definitely worth joining a long library waiting list. I don't think the storyline has the staying power of The Devils Wears Prada, but it was a fast and fun poolside read.

This is a fun, light read, a sort of spin off from “The Devil Wears Prada.” It‘s amusing and full of pop culture and luxury brand name-dropping. The three main characters are very likable, even though they‘re much thinner and richer than I‘ll ever be.

Break out you Lululemon yoga pants and call your plastic surgeons to tighten up those vajayjays, Miranda and Priestley's snarky assistant Emily is back and she is a big Hollywood PR Fixer now! Well, until she loses some high profile clients and ends up helping an ex-supermodel through a nasty divorce and custody battle with her politician husband in the suburbs of Connecticut. Aiding her is a former lawyer turned housewife in this third book.
