Book Club Friday-- Revenge Wears Prada.

GoodReads Synopsis: 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 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...

My Thoughts:  This was my fourth Lauren Weisberger book, and it is easily my favorite.  I thought this was even better than The Devil Wears Prada.  I didn't remember much of DWP when I started this bok since it had been years since I read it.  But it was easy to pick up anyway, and the author did a good job of reminding me of the important parts of DWP.  The story was a little predictable, but hey-- it's chick lit.  It was well written and easy to read.  It was the perfect book to read poolside!
