Reviews When Life Gives You Lululemons (The Devil Wears Prada, #3)

  • Melissa
    *4.5 stars*Truth be told I expect quite a bit from my women’s fiction picks. I’m looking for characters to (1) share a somewhat relatable story, (2) come across as likable, for the most part, and (3) present issues that hit me on an emotional level. Nothing unachievable by any means; yet, did I mention I also want the experience to feel light, almost easy breezy? Oh, and no cornball antics, please. I can’t handle it, nor be expected to refr...

    Good Snarky Fun! I needed an escape read and this book took me far from reality (but not too far).Emily Charlton from The Devil Wears Prada takes center stage in When Life Gives You Lululemons. When Emily finds herself in Greenwich, CT aka suburban hell, she reunites with two friends to help one (Karolina) rebrand her image and the other (Miriam) to adapt to suburban living.The story is told through the eyes of Emily, Karolina, and Miriam. Emily...

    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...

No worries, you’ll find it easy to pick up the characters and all their interesting little quirks. Life of the blue-blood wealthy in Greenwich Connecticut i...

    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...

    Lauren Weisberger brings back Emily Charlton, you know, the first assistant to Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada, who has since left and established herself as an in demand image consultant, married to Miles, who she barely sees, and living in LA. This is a delicious blackly humorous novel that skewers the well to do culture of the suburban housewives of Greenwich, Connecticut, and the manipulative black arts that lie behind the politics ...

    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.

  • Carol (Bookaria)
    This book is an engaging read full of scandal, drama, and humor featuring suburbanites and wealthy stay-at-home moms.Emily Charlton was Miranda Priestly's assistant in The Devil Wears Prada, in this book she has moved on from Runaway magazine life and into image consulting in Hollywood. Karolina, a former super model and now the wife of a senator gets in trouble and Emily heads to the suburbs to help. Miriam used to be a successful and overworke...
  • Lou
    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 ...
  • Kelly (and the Book Boar)
    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 ...
  • Elizabeth
    I...don’t even really know what to say about this book. It’s basically poolside trash. Over-the-top absolute trash. Everyone is a ridiculous stereotype. Soo much sex talk it’s obnoxious. One character has a one-night stand to make herself feel better about her husband’s betrayal. Another deliberately sexts both her husband and another guy she thinks is hot. Sex toy parties, self medicating with pills and alcohol, wandering eyes, mistrust,...
  • Ken
    Firstly I wasn’t aware that this was the third book in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ series.I’ve not seen film or read any of the previous books, whilst the U.K. editions of When Life Gives You Lulelemons are being marketed as The Wives I think I was expecting a completely different book!Nevertheless I thought I’d persevere and actually it was surprisingly fun!Even though I didn’t know the series main characters but as this story opens with...
  • Chandra Claypool (wherethereadergrows)
    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...
  • Amy
    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...
  • Melissa
    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...

    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...

    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...

    Let's just say if I were older I'd have liked this book very much.
  • Tammy
    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...
  • Sherri Thacker
    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.
  • Kathleen
    This is what gives ‘chick-lit’ a bad name. I admit I adored Emily in The Devil Wears Prada as played by actress Emily Blunt. This is Weisberger’s third offering in that series and I was looking forward to laughing at Emily’s antics once again. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. The characters were more like caricatures than actual human beings. They were superficial and very self-centered. Who wants to read about that—not me.
  • Lorilin
    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 ...

    What a fantastic book! I really thoroughly enjoyed this. Every single minute was pure joy! I really enjoyed the Devil Wears Prada series and I was looking forward to see what happened next in Emily’s life. It was totally worth the wait.This book is chick lit in the finest form, I laughed so much, it was an absolute pleasure to read. Emily is such a cutthroat character I love it, she has balls, does not give a hoot and is laugh out loud funny.Em...

    I don’t know that Weisberger will ever pull off another Devil Wears Prada, but like penny candy her books do satisfy with their predictable flavours, sweet plots and slightly tart finishes. I read her because she is a recognizable author when I need an escape, and for that purpose, she satisfied me again with her newest book.Great literature it ain’t, but it met my need for easy peasy light and lazy.
  • Mamta Valderrama
    This book left me feeling sad for humanity, irritated that this terrible book and author are so popular, and frustrated that it’s the kind of entertainment that people crave. I also resent that the author characterized LA so negatively when in fact she is rolling around in millions of dollars because of Hollywood. I hope this book doesn’t become a movie.
  • Sher❤ The Fabulous BookLover
    4.25 Stars!So engaging! Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know who Emily Charlton is (Miranda Priestley’s ex assistant from The Devil Wears Prada). ”Nothing’s changed! You’re still the same person. Still every bit as bitchy, unstoppable, and intimidating as the senior assistant I remember from Runway.”This is not so much of a romance read. Actually it follows the lives of 3 women who are very married. Emily..the fixer to the ...
