Totally exhausted your collection of Sex and the City DVD’s? Tired of waiting for its syndication to finally grace your channel of choice? As women do, we all crave that weekly dose of ‘girlie gossip’ and all things scandalous, so pour yourself a glass of champers (white or red) and take a peek at my new favourite read. Or as I like to call it, the culprit of this weeks madness.
Chasing Harry Winston is the new sinfully divine read by the same lovely lady who brought you The Devil Wears Prada (the book turned movie of the same name? Think Ugly Betty meets Meryl Streep). Lauren Weisberger, the international bestselling author sure knows what it takes to keep women glued to the couch on a rainy day: Fun, Friendship, and that ever present search for Love. And what would a great girlie book be without ever present staple drink of every girl’s choice, the Cosmo.
You’ll be taken on an awesome adventure (seriously the most fun I’ve had in ages) from the streets of NYC to the island of St. Tropez. I just know you’re going to fall in love with the three heroines of our story, our three best girlies! There’s Emmy, newly single, Adriana, a party girl about to turn the big 3-0 and Leigh, who has the dream life, boyfriend and job, or so it seems…
Each of our ladies find themselves at a crossroads in their lives, having to come to terms with those awful demons we all have to face onetime or another, all the while trying to keep that pact of friendship they made over raspberry mojitos and cosmos one night – that on this particular year everything would change, for the better!
Go grab yourself a copy just as soon as you possibly can, the holiday season is around the corner, and this read calls for sun, sand and fun! And if you aren’t going away, never fear, this bird has just the idea for you, whip up your own batch of Cosmo’s and invite your girls over for a little book club meet and give this one a try, it will get you talking and you wont want to put it down….
Ms. Weisberger, we hear Hollywood ‘a knocking once more, and to be honest, we just can’t wait!
