    Everyone’s favorite ex-assistant Emily Charlton is back and just as sassy as ever!! See my full review here!If any character deserved their own book, Emily would be among the top on my list! This book is positively delightful, and introduces two new co-leading ladies who are the perfect complement to Emily. Lauren Weisberger sure knows how to write a trendy book with surprisingly deep social commentary on the insecurity underlying all of the gl...

    4.5 hilarious laugh out loud stars🎉This was a seriously funny, and slightly irreverent look motherhood, the suburbs, and how life changes with age. Throw in a juicy scandal and it’s all good fun! Full of slapstick moments with a dash of serious topics, it has the perfect balance for a great beach read. Emily is back and funnier than ever - I love her and her seriously snarky, blunt personality. And who can’t love a cameo from The Devil, Mi...

    4 limoncello* stars to When Life Gives You Lululemons! 🍋 🍋 🍋 🍋 *Limoncello has little to do with this book, but I happen to love limoncello and all things lemon-based! Enter Emily Charlton, a character from The Devil Wars Prada, and former first assistant to the Miranda Priestly. A successful image consultant in her own right, and set in perfectly coifed Greenwich, Connecticut, everyone is talking about the new neighbor, Emily. Howeve...

    4 Sassy Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟She’s baaack... Love when I get to revisit a favorite character and Emily definitely tops my list of all-time favorite characters... “The Devil Wears Prada” is a favorite of mine! Loved all the Snark, laugh out loud moments, and of course the fashion.... oh and I mustn’t forget Maranda, who makes an appearance in this book and is still as vapid as ever....”that’s all...”Emily is now an image consultant ...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/I had ZERO intentions on ever reading this when it kept appearing on both my GR and Instagram feeds. While I’ll give props where they are due admit that title is über catchy and 5-Star worthy all by its lonesome, merely the mention of the word “Lululemon” tends to make me a little . . . . . But then I saw that it was a DWP follow-up and featured EMILY no less. God how I loved bi...

    This really isn't my genre but I fancied something fun and relaxing as a change and this turned out to be a quick and easy read that didn't tax my brain. I find that sometimes it works well to give a different genre a go even if you find you cannot wait to return to your usual type of book."The Wives" is perfect for the beach or a summer holiday. I found it wasn't too twee that I couldn't bear it unlike some chick lit. All in all, an amusing and ...

    Sometimes you need the perfect, lighthearted and hilarious read to cleanse that thriller palate and this book does the job! I haven't read The Devil Wears Prada but I have seen the movie and it's one of my favorites. I DID read Weisberger's The Singles Game back in 2016 and absolutely loved it so was THRILLED when this copy came in the mail for me!This book brings in Emily, Miranda Priestley's ex-assistant, as an image consultant to the stars who...

    I have to say that so far the summer books I’ve had the pleasure of reading have really been outstanding, I think there’s always a small group of amazing books released each summer but this year I feel like the stakes have been raised, and Weisberger took things to a whole new level with this one. If you’re a fan of The Devil Wears Prada (and seriously, who isn’t?!) you’ll gobble this one up. If you’re new to this series you’ll stil...

    This was my first book by Lauren Weisberger and I enjoyed every minute of reading it! I laughed and I cursed with Emily, Miriam and Karolina, like a was their friend. I loved how the story is told from their different perspectives. I have the two first books of the series somewhere in my house, and I need to find them, I don’t want to leave these characters for too long, I loved them too much! Thanks to the publisher for my e-copy through NetGa...

    4 starsThe Devil Wears Prada has to be one of my all-time favorite “chick lit” books, so when I saw that Weisberger put out a book featuring the one and only Emily Charlton, I knew I had to have it. And I am glad that I did.This was the perfect “break” from my usual genre and was just what I needed. I had been in a reading slump, reading several books in a row that I just did not enjoy. The timing of reading When Life Gives You Lululemons...

    This is my first book by Lauren Weisberger. These housewives are over the top!! But it was a fun read and let’s you see how the “other side” lives! Lol I really loved Emily’s character - she was witty and had some great off the top statements to make!! She didn’t care who heard it - she just told it like it was! I received this ARC from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.

    5 JUICY stars!! 🍋 This was fabulous, it had me LOL’ing from all it’s snark and humor throughout the book - loved it! Even so this is a total women empowerment book and I loved every page of this summer sizzler about Emily, Miriam and Karolina on motherhood, the suburbs and it’s smart take on how life changes with age. And let’s also not forget the juicy scandals rockin’ around Greenwich. Chick Lit isn’t my usual genre but very happ...

    Have you ever finished a string of dark and emotional reads and felt like a book that is lighter - one that will make you laugh rather than cry? When Life Gives You Lululemons is the PERFECT book in this instance! This was a delightful read and just what I needed. And although it is from the series The Devil Wears Prada, it is stand alone so doesn't require familiarity with the other plots and characters. The book has a lot of girl power and is s...

    Emily Charlton---the same Emily who worked for Miranda Priestly (in The Devil Wears Prada)---is now a publicity manager to the stars. She's a pro at smoothing over delicate situations for Hollywood elite, but, unfortunately, lately she's losing customers to a younger, hipper version of herself. Frustrated and in a rut, she jumps at the chance to help Connecticut-based Karolina Hartwell, a former supermodel turned senator's wife, who's just been ...

    Thanks to the publisher for this review copy!I have been a Weisberger fan since I first read THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA way back in the day (2003!!!), and have eagerly read everything she has written since. This latest title in the DEVIL series can definitely be read as a stand-alone, but for those devoted series readers like me, there are welcome cameos by and references to characters in the previous books - yay! This book is straight up SNARKY and h...

    3.5 Stars - An entertaining addition to the Devil Wears Prada series that doesn't quite live up to the charm of the first book. I listened to this on audiobook, which certainly influenced my opinion. The narrator did a decent job tackling the voices of Karolina, Miriam, and Emily, but I might have enjoyed it more if I had read without that influence. The three women are entertaining characters and it was hilarious hearing about the lives of the G...

    Not really even 3= a little less than meh. I was very much looking forward to this one, but ... Maybe I have ODed on "Mom Com", but I felt "Oh come on already" during several parts of this novel. There were also several parts I enjoyed, but not quite enough.

    I've got to say, I'm loving this current trend of bringing beloved characters back to life! I absolutely loved being reacquainted with Emily Charlton from The Devil Wears Prada. And, I'm happy to say, she has not lost her spunk! In When Life Gives You Lululemons, Emily is a high-powered image consultant to the stars. After losing a few clients, she travels to Greenwich, CT for a visit with her best friend and some downtime to lick her wounds. Her...

    When Life Gives You Lululemons is a great continuation of Emily’s story after Runway and Miranda Priestly. I enjoyed this so much better than book two in this series. Emily is as snarky and rude as ever and her life professional life is falling apart. Then there is Karolina, a supermodel married to a senator. Karolina gets arrested and charged with a DUI that seems super fishy. All aspects of her life are falling apart. Then there is Miriam, a ...

    4.5/5 starsWhen Life Gives You Lululemons is Chick Lit. It is a Devil Wears Prada novel. This is a charming book that will make you laugh and smile. I really liked it!I have read all of Lauren Weisberger's previous books. So I was excited to see that she had a new book coming out. I absolutely love the title of this book.

    I got to admit that I have yet to read REVENGE WEARS PRADA, the sequel to 2003 THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA. I had planned on doing so but life threw me a couple of curveballs I just couldn’t ignore. Nonetheless, I was certain that I would still enjoy the third book...http://sleaze-factor.blogspot.com/201...

    So I LOVED The Devil Wears Prada and read the book and have watched the movie like 100 times. Seeing that Weisberger had a sequel about Emily, the beloved first assistant that you wanted to hate yet LOVED, I could not wait to jump right in and devour this book.Money can't buy you happiness and you see that as the story unfolds of three friends... in their thirties, with or without children, working or stay at home moms on their journey of life in...

    Since Lululemon is one of my favourite brands, the title of this book totally grabbed my eye. This is chick-lit at it's finest. This book is told in third person from the point of views of three women, Emily, Miriam and Karolina. Emily works as a celebrity image consultant and is fired even before she can start a job in New York so she travels out to the suburbs to visit her friend, Miriam. In Greenwich, CT the juiciest scandal of the year falls ...

    When Life Gives you Lululemons is the third installment in the Devil Wears Prada Series. I haven’t read the previous novels, but I’m a big fan of the movie and I was all about trying this out.The book follows three points of view:1. Emily, Miranda Priestley’s former assistant, years down the road after she’s established a career as a publicity manager to celebrities. 2. Miriam, an excellent friend, who has given up her law career to settl...
