As a writer for Chick Habit, an increasingly popular women's website, Alex Lyons gets paid to be a bitch. She's churning out several posts a day, and she saves her juiciest ones for blog prime time, when working women eat their sad desk salads in their offices. Alex tells herself she's fulfilling her dream of being a professional writer; so what if it means being glued to her couch and her laptop from six a.m. to six p.m., scouring the web in search of the next big celebrity scandal? Since Chick Habit's parent company keeps close tabs on page views, Alex knows her job is always at risk.
So when an anonymous tipster sends her the year's most salacious story—a politico's squeaky-clean Ivy League daughter caught in a very R-rated activity—it's a no-brainer. But is Alex really willing to ruin the girl's life by igniting the next Internet feeding frenzy? And what she doesn't yet realize is how this big scoop is about to send her own life spiraling out of control.
This is a quick, light read. Gave me some insight into what the blogging world looks like, but without any real depth.Published 3 months ago by Danielle

This book was especially disappointing because it started out so well. I had hopes of an entertaining yet au courant read about the joys and terrors of internet publishing. Read morePublished 12 months ago by G. Maisano
This book took place over a week. It felt longer. Nothing too exciting happened. What little drama there was wasn't too dramatic. I didn't connect with Alex. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Pam
Had to read/push myself through this book for an English class in College. I didn't find it very funny (was a "satire/humor" writing class). Read morePublished 15 months ago by nick
I found Sad Desk Salad very interesting but also a bit stressful. I guess I must have been swept along with the rising tension of the main character. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Xinjun Wang
