Waiting on Wednesday

Wednesday, April 7, 2010


Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Here's my pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:


Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger
Release date: May 25, 2010


From chicklitreviews.com:

Two college sweethearts are living a happy, rather ordinary life in New York but there’s a slight twist — she’s the breadwinner, supporting her musician boyfriend. Until the tables are turned when he’s discovered by a Sony exec and their worlds are turned upside down. Soon they are holidaying in the Hamptons, adorning the cover of Vanity Fair and attending every glitzy party in town — all the while his career is reaching new, dizzying heights. But the trappings of this elite lifestyle mean our heroine must face the wrath of the US press.

Scorned for having a less-than-perfectly-honed LA body and brutalised for being ‘ordinary’ things couldn’t get any worse! Then news erupts that her best friend, who’s been her confidante through these months of misery, has sold her innermost secrets to the press and her life spirals out of control. She finds solace in a secret support group: The Civilian Ex-Wives and Girlfriends of Celebrities Group — a place to gossip, lubricated with lashings of shared experiences and strong cocktails. As this sassy group right the wrongs of their past relationships, our heroine must decide if she’s going to sink or swim.

Fun pick :)

Oh, this sounds appealing...I loved The Devil Wears Prada, but I was disappointed in Chasing Harry Winston. This one sounds more like a relationship story, which is more fun than just shopping.

Here's mine:

Holy cow...that's one exceptionally high high-heel on the cover!

Sounds great. She has been a hit or miss author for me, though this looks promising.

This sounds really fun! I really enjoyed the movie of The Devil Wears Prada. I don't think I've actually read any the books by this author, though!! I think I need to change that! :)

Good pick!

Juju -- I thought so. =)

Laurel -- Yeah, her last one wasn't he greatest, but I think I'll still enjoy this one!

Jill -- LOL, true!

Melissa -- I agree, but it's usually at least fun if nothing else for me. =)

Jennifer -- They're making a movie out of Chasing Harry Winston too!
