Blogger Girl By Meredith Schorr Review


About the book:

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.

My thoughts:

I loved this book because I am a blogger and to me books are precious I cannot imagine how I would feel if someone I strongly disliked published a book and let alone has the guts to ask you to review it. What would I have personally done? Would I turn down the offer? Would I give in to curiosity? This book was really engaging there were some parts of the book that felt like fillers but soon after it picked up and once it did it was irresistible and impossible to put down. I am not a big fan of chick lit I enjoy YA more but this book is a great exception and I adore the cover just look at Kim in her louboutin shoes and the ever growing pile of books a blogger has (it comes with the job). 

My rating: Four stars! ★★★★
