‘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.’

 

What we say – review by Noemie T. Verlan:

I started Blogger Girl with great enthusiasm based on it being about a book reviewer, but after a sitting reading for a while I was a little bored with the amount of product placement and name dropping. I persevered and I am so, so glad that I did, because after Ms Schorr got that out of the way at the beginning the book developed quickly into a brilliantly warm and funny read.
The set of characters, each of whom has a well thought out back story, are a well written bunch of friends and colleagues and the interactions amongst them are honest and open with well written and realistic dialogue and feelings, which I found completely refreshing.
My thorough enjoyment grew as I made my way quickly through the book. I really liked the engaging main character because she was completely likeable and believable to the point where I wanted to tap her on the shoulder and tell her to get a grip. She makes totally human and believable decisions (both good and bad) and the relationships between all the characters are wonderfully depicted. I was completely drawn in by the way the writer left breadcrumbs throughout the story and neatly dovetailed everything together in the last chapter and by doing this she really nailed the ending.

This book has been easy to recommend to family, friends and you because it’s such a great read, so everyone get your copy quick!
