Review of The Wives by Lauren Weisberger.

This book is the third instalment in The Devil Wears Prada series. Although I’ve watched The Devil Wears Prada movie, I haven’t read any of the books prior to this one. I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to get into the story or keep up with what was going on with any of the characters.

My worry was unfounded, the story flowed beautifully and the characters weren’t complicated at all.

This particular book is set in Greenwich, Connecticut, and revolves around Emily, Miriam, and Karolina.

Emily turns up in Manhattan during the New Year festivities with the hope of saving the career of a celeb gone bad. This particular bad boy shuns her assistance, preferring the help of a rival of Emily.

Emily decides to spend some time with Miriam and it’s whilst at her house that she gets drawn into helping Karolina fight a DUI that she didn’t even commit, but her politician husband and his would-be new wife are stopping at nothing to get rid of Karolina.

This story is hilarious and full of scandal. It is told from the perspective of all three women and each different point of view reflects upon the issues these women are facing, showing us readers that even the rich and famous have issues and hang-ups just like the rest of us.

I absolutely loved Thais book and highly recommend it.

Review of Big Booty.

Big Booty a novel by Cairo.

I should have suspected this book was going to be full of over the top sex scenes when I read the title and the synopsis.  Having read Fifty Shades last year and other such novels I didn’t think it could be any worse than that.
I wouldn’t say it was a bad novel, I just couldn’t take it seriously.  But then I don’t actually think I was supposed to.  The main character, Cass, or Booty, was just ridiculous.  I kept on muttering away to myself at how stupid and awful and downright nasty Cass is, but then she would do something that made me think, “OK, maybe she isn’t so bad.”
In the write up the book gets described as being like an episode of Jeremy Kyle.  I’d say Jeremy Kyle meets Oprah meets The Osbournes!!!!!  I was determined that I couldn’t say a positive thing about this book, but then a plot twist grabbed me by the throat and almost choked me half to death!!!!
All I am going to say is, bring on the sequel.
If you like your characters trashy then this book is a must read.  You will laugh yourself silly at them all, with their ghetto talk.  And the huge amounts of sex scenes really can’t be taken that seriously, surely?
It’s quite a long book and you may be rolling your eyes with all of the trashy characters and over the top sex by the end of it, but I have to say you really do need to stick with it, because you will be wanting more by the end – not glad to see the back of it like I expected to be!!!!!

**** 4 stars because I did laugh quite a lot and loved the cliff hanger!
