Almost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job “a million girls would die for” working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine—a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a high end bridal magazine, The Plunge, which has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her heart’s content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro.
Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple. Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma’s a bitch.
The morning of her wedding, Andy can’t shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread. Andy realizes that nothing—not her husband, nor her beloved career—is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago—and directly into the path of the devil herself...
I’m back again with yet another book review. I know that I am unintentionally turning this into a book blog, but I swear that there are more real life posts coming soon. I’m even going to be changing up my youtube channel, but more on that in another post.
Let’s get back to the topic at hand. This book review in case you haven’t noticed is about the book Revenge wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger. I will be honest and tell you that I received this book as part of an Pop Sugar Box which I previously subscribed to.
This book sat on my TBR shelf for a number of years and I just couldn’t get into it. I recently decided that this was finally the year that I’m going to clear my TBR shelf and read all the books that I have been hoarding for so long. I had read the Devil wears Prada right around when the movie came out and I loved it. I even loved the movie based on the book, however I found this book long and winded in getting to the conclusion that it has already drawn 1/3 of the way into the book.
I will try and keep my promise to not spoil the ending of the book too much, though I’m pretty sure that you can take a stab in the dark and probably guess correctly as to what happens in the end. Lauren Weisberger has also written another book in this series that is now dedicated to Emily Charlton I’m also contemplating reading that. I wouldn’t say that this book is completely predictable but if you can guess from the synopsis I gave you the writing is clearly marked on the wall what happens next. I had wished a bit more for the book and had hoped to see more from Andy Sachs.
Let me know if you have read this book and what you thought or if you just saw the movie and were interested in the book. I also added a Currently Reading section in my sidebar instead of the usual books I’ve read. If you have any recommendations for books I should read this year, let me know 🙂 I’ll see you soon with another post.
