Read full description of the books:
Ugh, you couldn't pay me enough to be married to a musician, let alone a successful one.
I had a few qualms with this book. The biggest one being how completely clueless this couple was about Julian's success. I understand that it happened quickly, and no one knows what fame is like until they have it, but this wasn't exactly overnight stardom. Brooke and Julian had worked tirelessly every day for years to achieve this. Brooke had two jobs to make up for the fact that her husband was working full time on his music career. It's not like it was something he did just in his spare time. And yet they never considered what success would mean. They never thought about the travelling, or the fact that Julian would have to spend late nights at the studio. This was a goal they had been striving to reach FOREVER and when it finally happened Brooke was like "wait, you have to go on tour?" Hello!! Do you even know what a musician is!?
But despite that, I actually liked Brooke, that is, when she wasn't being completely self-deprecating - okay, you're not a size 2, I get it! She was completely oblivious her husband was pursuing celebritydom, but otherwise she was pretty relatable. It was Julian I couldn't stand. His character completely changed. He accepted his celebrity status much too eagerly - this should have been prevalent in his personality way earlier on. But he was introduced to us as a seemingly humble, unassuming dude who I imagined as rather small and kind of smelly (the part where Brooke described how much it thrilled her to be one of the few people to see Julian without his wool cap on grossed me out. Burn that thing, it must be rank!) So it was kind of unbelievable that he turned into such a chauvinistic jerk.
Anyway, it was solid three-star fluff with a rather sweet ending. I saw it coming a mile away but that's chick-lit for you. Good summertime read, or something light for a plane ride.

Read information about the authorLauren Weisberger was born March 28, 1977, in Scranton, Pennsylvania, a locale recently made even more chic, if possible, by The Office. She was joined four years later by sister Dana, a.k.a. The Family Favorite, and moved to Allentown, Pennsylvania, at age eleven. At Parkland High School, Lauren participated in all sorts of projects, activities, and organizations for the sole purpose of padding her college application, although she did genuinely enjoy playing varsity tennis (especially when the girl who should have played first singles incurred a season-ending injury and Lauren had no choice but to step in for the team).
Once matriculated at Cornell University, all civic-minded extracurriculars fell by the wayside. There, she focused her energy on securing a steady stream of fake IDs and dating boys from the right fraternities. After graduating in 1999 with a BA in English, Lauren moved home for the summer to save money and then traveled all over Europe, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Thailand, India, Nepal, and Hong Kong. She carried a single small backpack and stayed in questionable places, further enriching her authentic cultural experiences by eating only Nutella and drinking Coca-Cola Light.
Lauren's first job after returning to the U.S. and moving to Manhattan was the Assistant to the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour. Lauren became proficient in the language of stilettos and Starbucks before moving to Departures magazine, where she wrote 100-word reviews by day and took writing classes at night. The Devil Wears Prada, begun at the Writer's Voice, was published in April 2003, and spent six months on The New York Times Bestseller List. It was sold in thirty-one foreign countries and made into a major motion picture by Fox 2000 starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. Lauren has a half-second cameo in the film that even she is hard-pressed to locate after several viewings. Her second novel, Everyone Worth Knowing, was published in October 2005 and is also a New York Times Bestseller.
