Series: Blogger Girl #1

Genres: Chick Lit
What happens when your high school nemesis becomes the shining star in a universe you pretty much saved? Book blogger Kimberly Long is about to find out.
A chick lit enthusiast since the first time she read Bridget Jones’s Diary, Kim, with her blog, "Pastel is the New Black," has worked tirelessly by night to keep the genre alive, and help squash the claim that "chick lit is dead" once and for all. Not bad for a woman who by day ekes out a meager living as a pretty, and pretty-much-nameless, legal secretary in a Manhattan law firm.
While Kim's day job holds no passion for her, the handsome (and shaving challenged) associate down the hall is another story. Yet another story is that Hannah Marshak, one of her most hated high school classmates, has now popped onto the chick lit scene with a hot new book that's turning heads--and pages--across the land. It's also popped into Kim's inbox--for review. With their ten-year high school reunion drawing near, Kim's coming close to combustion over the hype about Hannah’s book. And as everyone around her seems to be moving on and up, she begins to question whether being a “blogger girl” makes the grade in her off-line life.
Super pleased to share my first Meredith Schorr book with you today! I had the pleasure of reading BLOGGER GIRL on New Years Eve (BIG party girl here) and am disappointed that I didn’t read it earlier. I absolutely LOVED it.
There were so many ways that I was able to relate to the fabulous Kimberly Long. Blogger, reviewer, bookworm, single girl, not so single girl (ok, I can’t relate to that, but a girl can dream, right?), wannabe writer. All of that made it very easy to get caught up in Kim’s life and feel what she did. I remember shedding a few tears and cursing Meredith because one should not cry on NYE. 😉
If you’re looking for a quick read that will suck you in immediately and leave you wanting more, this is it. AND if you’re a blogger/reviewer who has known the struggles of trying to keep up (like me), this is more than a must read. You will definitely feel better knowing that even fictional characters are just like us. HUGE thanks to Meredith for writing a book that is so real. My friend Jess, at Everyday Jess, read BLOGGER GIRL right after I did and said the same thing in one of our Facebook groups! I’d say that’s proof enough.
BLOGGER GIRL is full of Chick Lit goodness and truly deserves to be on my “Top Chick Lit Reads” list. Fortunately, Meredith just released Kim’s second book, NOVELISTA GIRL, so I’m off to catch up with Kim and the crew again. I’ll be back with more of her story next week!!
