Read This Now: The Index
What if there were an army of indie booksellers enthusiastically reading and reviewing practically every new book coming out in the next year, and what if the books they were the most excited about, the books they couldn't wait to push into their customers' hands with a breathless "You've GOT to read this!" (virtually or otherwise), the ones with all the nine- and ten-star ratings were carefully curated and collected in a handy list? Well, all we can say is...KEEP READING!
There are several obvious ties to the preceding The Devil Wears Prada, but this sequel stands firmly on its own. With female friendships and independence as the backbone, it's a fun story perfect for summer reading.
When Life Gives You Lululemons by Lauren Weisberger ($26.99*, Simon & Schuster), recommended by Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC.
