Goodreads:  What happens when your high school nemesis becomes the shining star in a universe you pretty much saved? Book blogger Kimberly Long is about to find out. 

A chick lit enthusiast since the first time she read Bridget Jones’s Diary, Kim, with her blog, "Pastel is the New Black," has worked tirelessly by night to keep the genre alive, and help squash the claim that "chick lit is dead" once and for all. Not bad for a woman who by day ekes out a meager living as a pretty, and pretty-much-nameless, legal secretary in a Manhattan law firm. 

While Kim's day job holds no passion for her, the handsome (and shaving challenged) associate down the hall is another story. Yet another story is that Hannah Marshak, one of her most hated high school classmates, has now popped onto the chick lit scene with a hot new book that's turning heads--and pages--across the land. It's also popped into Kim's inbox--for review. With their ten-year high school reunion drawing near, Kim's coming close to combustion over the hype about Hannah’s book. And as everyone around her seems to be moving on and up, she begins to question whether being a “blogger girl” makes the grade in her off-line life.


Kritters Thoughts:  Every blogger who does this as a side hobby and loves to read books of the chick lit variety, must run and pick up this book and read it.

Ok, now that you have read it.  We can all agree that this book made you chuckle, nod in utter agreement and actually made you sigh once or twice!  For a book to hit close to home, this happens, but to feel so close to the main character, this only rarely happens and from the very beginning I wanted to find out where Kim would end up.

I myself am an Executive Assistant to an amazing CEO and love the value - both monetary and emotional, that I get from my full time job.  BUT nothing gives me the joy (minus the husband and the dogs) that blogging has given me and for a character to share this with me was fantastic.  

I think an added bonus was that this blogger also reads chick lit and has a hard time talking about this "guilty pleasure" to others.  I don't know if bloggers who read other genres feel the same kind of embarrassment to divulge that not only that they have a blog, but at the heart it is a book blog - anyone?  So props to the author who made a book that reminded me why I have a book blog and that I am not the only one to enjoy this side hobby/passion.


Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
