Book Club Friday-- Chasing Harry Winston.

GoodReads Synopsis {edited}: Three very different girls have been best friends for a decade in the greatest city on earth. As they near thirty, they're looking toward their future...but despite all they've earned -- first-class travel, career promotions, invites to all the right parties, and luxuries small and large -- they're not quite sure they like what they see. One Saturday night, Adriana and Emmy make a pact: within a single year, each will drastically change her life. Leigh watches from the sidelines, not making any promises, but she'll soon discover she has the most to lose. Their friendship is forever, but everything else is on the table. Three best friends. Two resolutions. One year to pull it off.

My Thoughts: I pulled this off my shelf where it had been living for several years. After a long string of suspenseful or intense books, I wanted to give my brain a little break with some good ol' chick lit. And this book definitely did the trick. It was fun, it was lighthearted, the setting was in NYC (ps-- does chick lit ever take place in any other city??), and it was a quick read. The characters were fun and loveable. The ending was not entirely predictable, which I appreciated. All in all, it wasn't Lauren Weisberger's best work, but it was definitely worth reading.
Who's your favorite chick lit author (other than Emily Giffin...)?

  1. I really enjoyed this book when I read it but for the same reason you said - it's a light, fluffy, by the pool kind of a read. A nice break between my usual choices.

  3. I read this book about a year ago or so and I loved it. I thought it was super cute. I agree with Rachel, one of my favorite authors is Sophie Kinsella.

  5. I've never read this, or anything else by Lauren Weisberger's. Although I probably should at some point. As for my favorite chick lit author, I'm going to have to be somewhat of a follower and say Sophie Kinsella, although I've still yet to read her last two books.

  6. Yeah, this one was okay. My fave chick lit author is Marian Keyes. Her books are a bit longer but that means her characters are more developed, and I like that.
