I love to read. Do you? My favorite books to read are chick lit, YA, mysteries, memoirs, and fantasies, but I will give almost anything a try. Over the past few years, I haven’t been able to read as much as I used to due to the lovely demands of college. I’ve mostly worked on my ridiculously long to-read list on breaks, and this past winter break was no exception. I read Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger (borrowed from my fellow book-loving friend, Elizabeth!).
Everyone Worth Knowing was actually the first book of Weisberger’s that I have read, and it definitely has encouraged me to bump her other books to the top of my to-read list. A brief summary: the heroine of the book is Bette Robinson, a twenty-something living in NYC. One day she becomes frustrated with her banking job and quits. After a couple of weeks of enjoying unemployment, she agrees to take on a public relations job her uncle put her up for. She struggles to fit in with the ultra-hip crowd at her new job, which essentially consists of planning huge parties, going to parties, making celebrities happy, and getting the PR firm press in any way possible. The book tells the story of Bette attempting to succeed at her new job while also not sacrificing her friends, her family, her love life, and what will make her truly happy. I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would, and I definitely recommend it for a fun and charming read. Overall: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
