I have to thank Simon & Schuster for sending this book for review. As always, I only feature things on this blog that I love. All opinions are entirely my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support this blog!
Today is another installment of Rebecca Reads, the series of book reviews, recommendations, and book lists here on my blog. Today’s book is none other than When Life Gives You Lululemons by Lauren Weisberger.
I wanted to read this based on the title alone, never mind that it’s part of the A Devil Wears Prada world. A Devil Wears Prada was such a fave of mine back when it came out. I am definitely one of those types that prefer a book over a movie, but the movie was absolutely a close second to the book.
All that being said, this newest book is a standalone. You do not need to read the A Devil Wears Prada books to understand this one.
Written in Lauren Weisberger’s witty tone, this story brings together three unlikely ladies. Emily, Miranda Priestley’s first assistant, has made a name for herself in the consulting world. She does PR for celebrities, but she’s slowly losing clients because of her resistance to social media.
Emily’s friend from camp, Miranda, was once a lawyer for a larger firm. She has since traded in the city for the ‘burbs with her husband and their children.
Karolina, one of Miranda’s acquaintances and the former face of L’Oreal, has come under weird and hard times. She is framed in a DUI charge while driving her stepson and his friends home. It’s immediately obvious that it’s a set-up. She is married a presidential hopeful that is very reminiscent of the Kennedy era.
Miranda brings Emily and Karolina together to fix Karolina’s image, and along the way they uncover a more lies and deceit than they imagine. I hate to give anything away about the ending, of course!
This book is a page turner. Even if you aren’t familiar with the A Devil Wears Prada characters, you will easily fall in love with each lady in this story. Each one has resilience in the trials she faces, and they come together in solidarity to make things right.
Have you read this yet? It was just realized this summer & I’m so glad I was given the chance to read it. I don’t say this often, but this would definitely be a re-read for me!
