Just like watching your favourite rom com, all snuggled up on the sofa, with a big mug of hot choc (or ice cream, if you're like me) after a looong working week.

Take someone who has accidentally put odd shoes on a mannequin off to work as an assistant stylist the stars for a couple of weeks and get ready for Hollywood craziness, stroppy stars, all the award ceremon...

    The cover of this book is absolutely gorgeous, I would love a T-shirt in the exactly the same design. The Stylist is a must-read for The Devil Wears Prada and Shopaholic fans. I loved reading this novel, which Hello Editor Rosie Nixon debut novel draws upon her own experience of the fashion world to create this fast-paced ,fun-loving book about fame, love and style. In less than five minutes Amber Green had gone from shop girl in an exclusive Lon...

    This was a really fun read set in the glitzy world of styling celebrities and the awards ceremonies- with plenty of humour. Plenty of mishaps happen to Amber as she helps Mona in the new job she fell into accidentally. Can she pull it off- who else could attend an awards ceremony in a Onesie???? A lovely book that combines friendships, romance, working relationships and dream destinations with a fascinating job that keeps you on your toes working...

    4 and 1/2 StarsWhen Amber Green (!) becomes an assistant to stylist extraordinaire Mona Armstrong for the approaching and highly-publicized award season she can’t believe her luck. The stars, the glitz, the glamour, what more can a girl working at a trendy boutique in London want? A lot, as it turns out. Before she even has time...http://sleaze-factor.blogspot.ca/2017...

    Loved this book! I read it slowly to eek out the pleasure for as long as possible. I love sit down in the evenings, put my phone on silent and get lost in the world of celebrity stylist. Amber is thrown into this world by a happy accident (although she'll never admit the accident part) after Mona Armstrong visits the boutique she works at. One minute shes a shop assitant and the next she's thrust into her dream jobs (the one that a million girls ...

    A fun and often light-hearted story about Amber Green, a simple shop girl in a London boutique, with her chance at grabbing for the stars. Celebrity stylist Mona Armstrong is needing an ‘assistant’ to style her stable full of stars ahead of the Golden Globes, Oscars and BAFTAs. What Mona doesn’t realize is that Amber is a ‘newbie’ to the styling gig, and perhaps isn’t quite the person she was expecting. But like much of Mona’s behav...

It was easy to digest which allowed me to easily find myself drawn into the story whilst allowing the novel itself to continuously flow.The Stylist is everything I loved about Devil Wears Prada and MORE, a difference between the two is The Stylist's sett...

    2 stars or 4/10 from me. Sorry to say I found this a chore to read. I lost interest in it and felt that it could've been much shorter to be honest.I was expecting great things from it with it being compared in some ways to The Devil Wears Prada, but I felt that it didn't deliver.I don't like giving up on books, as I feel that the author has taken the time to write it and the least we as readers can do is read it all. I also, often feel that if I ...

    The first thing that I'd like to say is that I - truly - haven't expected "The Stylist" to be so damn great read! Yes, it somehow reminded me of "The Devil Wears Prada" but this book has its own distinctive voice and its own brilliant characters, and I adored that it focused around award season in Hollywood and London, such as Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and, of course, the Oscars - ha, who doesn't like some celebrity spotting?This book was truly f...

    The cover of The Stylist is gorgeous and is what initially caught me eye, and then once I’d read the synopsis I knew I had to read this book. I have absolutely no idea about fashion but this book just called to me!Amber Green is working in a boutique in London and is coasting along in life until one day she attracts the attention of stylist Mona Armstrong and before she knows it she is being whisked away to LA to style the stars during awards s...

    A chic-lit style of book, I have missed those. The humour, the lightness, all fun you know.Amber does have a good eye, but she is not super into everything. I guess she is more the artistic type of person. She does like fashion, and gossip. And I did like her, she was normal.And who could say no when a famous stylist asks you to help out! Money, glitz, glamour and Hollywood! Nope, even I could not say no, I know nothing about fashion. Amber at le...

    Book: The StylistAuthor: Rosie NixonPublisher: William MorrowStars: ****Rosie Nixon's debut novel The Stylist is a humorous look into the fast paced world of Celebrity Stylist and their Uber famous clientele. Rosie drew on her knowledge as editor of Hello Magazine to draw you into the world of glitz and glam. I never would have been able to tell this was Rosie's debut novel; it was that well put together. Her character development was really on p...

    If any book needs to be opted for a rom com, its The Stylist. This book was so fun and amazing and just what I needed, right now after I've read some heavier material.Amber was a Stylist by accident. She worked hard, but most of her opportunities came to her by accident, which makes things even more hilarious at times.She's a good person, but she's getting caught up in the craziness that is Hollywood, and Stylist to the stars Mona, is pretty much...

    Ok story (In the end) but it dragged. The book had big sections where nothing significant happened. I felt like giving up between pages 150-320 so I took a break but stuck with it and towards the end things began to happen. It turned out to be an ok read. The name dropping and other elements of the story felt very shallow and too materialistic (in my opinion) which got really annoying and added to the lack of substance. Some of the characters wer...

    It was an interesting look into the world of fashion and stylists but a lot of the time I spent wishing Amber would grow a backbone and tell Mona to eff-off and that there weren’t so many name drop moments especially as some of the references were extremely outdated even though the book only came out a couple of years ago I.e. Brangelina, Weinstein etc...I am looking forward to reading the sequel though.

    Si vous aviez aimé Meryl Streep, alias Miranda Priestley, dans le Diable s’habille en Prada, vous apprécierez énormément Mona. Je n’ai pas pu m'empêcher de faire le parallèle entre les deux personnages aux caractères semblables : une patronne ignoble toujours habillée chiquement et qui prend tout le monde de haut derrière ses verres teintés. La ressemblance est plus que troublante, car la styliste...http://www.sariahlit.com/2017/09/...

    One thing that I learnt is, to live by your own mean. Is it okay to have a wardrobe full of designers when you struggle to pay rent?

    This is a similar read, following in the footsteps of “The Devil Wears Prada.” I don’t want to give anything away before it’s pub date. It’s a silly, light-hearted read looking into the world of the stylist behind the stars during award season. Just one question... can someone explain the Amber Green -Traffic light connection? Is that a purely British thing?Full review here: https://thenovelworld.com/2018/08/09/...

    The Stylist by Rosie Nixon for me was a good read though I have to admit it did take me a while to really get into the story of Amber Green as she lands her so-called dream job, not realising what she really was going to get into when she signed the deal with Mona a celebrity stylist who certainly is one character who I will not forget in a hurry.Amber Green was a very likable character who I could not fail to like as she tries her best to work f...
