About the Author
Meredith Schorr secures much inspiration from her day job as a hard-working trademark paralegal and her still single (but looking) status. Meredith is also the co-founder of BookBuzz, a live author/reader event held annually. She is a loyal New York Yankees fan and an avid runner.
It isn't often that I find a sequel to a book as good, if not better, than the first one. But I have to say, I do indeed think that Novelista Girl is better than Blogger Girl. And that is really saying something too because Blogger Girl is one of the best books I've read all year, if not the best until I read Novelista Girl.
I so relate to the main character Kim. She is all about her blog and now in the sequel, she is all about her novel. Reading her blogging adventures has really got me wanting to step up and broaden my blogging horizons for sure. But no, a novel isn't in my future. For now anyway!!
I love how Meredith Schorr makes sure she adds a little Sex In The City to her books. That is one of my favorite shows ever. And having Kim in the story compare Nicholas to Mr. Big and Petrovsky was awesome sauce!!
If you want a book where blogging meets Sex in the City, I highly recommend Novelista Girl. I'm sure all of you Carrie Bradshaw fans will agree, it is FANTASTIC!!
I'm a tried and true chick-lit fan, and Novelista is A-list. It's got all the ingredients that makes a great book, but I won't re-tell the story as I'm sure other reviewers have conveyed alot about the storyline and characters. The story is seamless, the writiing witty, the characters easy and fun to love... or disparage. I'm not a fan of sequels or serials, but I loved Blogger Girl and was thrilled to know it was being followed with this book. This is a story is about believing in yourself and following your dreams.The story is nothing if not funny with some -laugh -out loud moments . I really admire Kim's sass and spunk and think women will easily be able to identify with her. I'd love to meet her for lunch one day! She's assertive but not brash,caring but not cloying . This book is really a delightful and entertaining, and so easy to read you won't want to put it down.
I have read all of Meredith Schorr's books in order, starting with "Just Friends With Benefits" and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. Her growth as a writer impresses me with each subsequent novel, and "Novelista Girl" does not disappoint. Her characters were first introduced to us in "Blogger Girl", Kimberly Long being the titular character. Although "Novelista Girl" was written as a standalone novel, and the reader does not need to have read "Blogger Girl" to fully comprehend the plot or background, it would be a shame to miss out on how each character has developed from one novel to the next. That being said, I absolutely loved "Novelista Girl". I have very little time to read, and was prepared to read a couple of chapters a night. But I ended reading it in one sitting because I just could not put it down. Every time I got to the end of a chapter I just had to keep reading to see what happens next. Kimberly is adorable and so real and relatable. Her life seems perfect, with her close knit family (even annoying little sis, Erin), her lifelong BFF Bridget and ex boyfriend and past go-to booty call, Jonathan, and of course her handsome, successful, and devoted live-in boyfriend Nicholas. She also has a day job as a legal secretary and a boss who is demanding but supportive, and a side job as a Chick-Lit blogger (hence "Blogger Girl"), making one wonder "what more could she possibly want"? But she does want more. The end of "Blogger Girl" found Kimberly taking Nicholas' advice and deciding to fulfill her dream and write a novel. "Novelista Girl" follows Kimberly's journey as she tries to have her novel published, with the unexpected help of high school nemesis and resident "Mean Girl" Hannah Marshak (whose character is an absolute hoot) who has become a published author herself, much to Kimberly's chagrin in "Blogger Girl", and now knows her way around the publishing world. Kimberly is also feeling neglected by Nicholas, who has become totally engrossed in his career as a lawyer, in an attempt, as we learn in "Novelista Girl" to prove to his father that he can be a success even if it is as a lawyer and not as a doctor like his father had wanted and expected of him. There is also the recent coupling of Bridget and Jonathan, which has Kimberly slightly off kilter, for as much as she wants her two closest friends to be happy, there is the uneasy feeling of jealousy that we can all relate to, even if we no longer want to be with an ex. Throw in the gnawing questions of whether Hannah is being sincere in her claims to be trying to help Kimberly or is it just an attempt to see Kimberly humiliated, as she did all through high school, and you have a story that just keeps entertaining from the first page to the last. The ending is terrific, although I highly recommend reading "Blogger Girl" first to fully appreciate it. Five champagne flutes to Meredith Schorr!! Congratulations on another successful novel. I can't wait for the next one!!
