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 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 offline life.
Ok, I am going to come across really judgemental now because when I started Blogger Girl by Meredith Schorr I made a snap decision that it wasn’t going to be up to much. It was going to be a light bit of fluff that will keep me mildly entertained for 200+ pages.
Boy, was I wrong?
Meredith Schorr’s book was bloody brilliant. It was engaging and addictive. For anyone who is a fan of the modern day romance novel.
The story focuses on Kimmie, a legal assistant with no aspirations to further her career. She has a boss who allows her to use her free time in work to pursue her passion – reading books and writing about them (hands in the bucket who loves doing this too). Kimmie harbours a secret crush for office man-candy Nicholas and much to her surprise he likes her as well. But as we all know, the course of true love never runs smoothly. If Kimmie wants to keep her man she is going to have to fight for him.
I hold my hands up and fully apologise for my negative first impression of Blogger Girl. I should have known better. All praise sent to Meredith Schorr because I really loved Blogger Girl, so much so that I bought the sequel as soon as I finished the book.
Blogger Girl by Meredith Schorr is available now.
