"Meredith Schorr writes novels that pull you in, with characters you want to hang out with for real." Eileen Goudge, New York Times bestselling author
"A great chick lit book: a strong and confident heroine, a sexy boyfriend you can crush on, supportive friends, and plenty of conflict leading to comical results, culminating in a very satisfying ending." - Erin Brady, Bestselling Author of The Shopping Swap
"Even when mean girls sidle up to be frenemies while throwing obstacles in her way--both professionally and personally--Kimmie more than holds her own in these battles of wit and this true journey of the heart." - Josie Brown, Author of The Housewife Assassin's Handbook Series
About the Author
A born-and-bred New Yorker, Meredith Schorr discovered her passion for writing when she began to enjoy drafting work-related emails way more than she was probably supposed to. After trying her hand penning children’s stories and blogging her personal experiences, Meredith found her calling writing chick lit and humorous women’s fiction. She secures much inspiration from her day job as a hardworking trademark paralegal and her still-single (but looking) status. Meredith is a loyal New York Yankees fan, an avid runner, and an unashamed television addict.
After finishing this book I have one question. Will there be a "Publisher Girl"? I have to guess that there will be. It would be a shame not to round out at three as I now feel invested in these characters. Nicholas and Kimmie in particular. Surprisingly Hannah as well. I really enjoyed Blogger Girl as it gave you the background and shares how Nicholas and Kimmie began. Novelista Girl I enjoyed more because I already knew my characters. I was able to relax and enjoy the ride not knowing exactly where it would go.
Blogger Girl was my first experience with reading Meredith Schorr. Obviously I came back for more. I love that she brought the New York scene too. Always a plus for me. I am looking forward to reading future novels by this author. Specifically, "The Boyfriend Swap" which I have preordered.
Kim is quickly realizing that her happily ever after from book 1 isn't going so well. She's written two novels, but can't get an agent to save her life. She's moving in with Nicholas, but he's turned distant and focused on his job. Horrible Hannah is getting another book published, and now Bridget isn't talking to her! Things are unraveling fast, and it's looking like HEA is not going to last.
One of the things I love about chick lit is that they tend to be quick and breezy, even when tearing out your feelings and disintegrating your cares of the outside world. Despite the reputation for being on the fluffy side of life, good chick lit often puts their plucky heroines through the literal wringer, and Novelista Girl is no exception.
It's cute and light, and while I was glad the author toned down all of the emphasis on Kim's, *ahem* assets, I found the pacing to be a little slow and uneven. There were gaps in time that weren't well laid out, leading me to realize that a month or two had gone by instead of days or weeks. This is a small critique, however, as I really enjoyed the rest of the story and am incredibly excited for book 3!
What can I say about how awesome this book is? The further adventures of Kim Long are laugh-out-loud hilarious, her sexy boyfriend, Nicholas seems even hotter in this sequel, and I legit want to claw the eyes out of coworker/nemesis Daneen. I love books that give me strong emotions and really make me feel for and root for the characters. [author:Meredith Schorr|4355520] does just that. She can write characters and situations that hook you in the heart and take you for a ride. In the first book, [book:Blogger Girl|33002919], just when you thought the nemesis was going to be high school queen Bee Hannah Marshak, we're introduced to the adult equivalent in Daneen, a lawyer with a severe personality disorder.
I seriously think I hated this antagonist more in the second go-round if that's possible. She was just so vicious, but in a way that only women can be. Ladies, be nice, mmmkay? Her plotting, her scheming, and her straight up holier-than-thou attitude against aspiring writers is just obnoxious. Isn't that what we want in an antagonist, though?
Despite Daneen, Kim's journey from blogger to novelist had so many ups and downs it made me wonder if her dreams would ever come true, both professionally and personally, and I enjoyed the roller coaster. This rollercoaster almost made me happy cry when I finished.
Such a great book and I highly recommend it! Please read it! So good!
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.
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!!
Meredith Schorr did it again....but even better this time! I couldn't put it down.
Ever have one of those embarrassing moments where you're crying over a book in public? This was me, reading the end of Novelista Girl, on an airplane. I LOVE this book! As a big fan of Blogger Gilrl, I was so excited to be able to follow Kimmy and Nicholas into the next chapter of their lives. Meredith's writing style had me laughing, cheering and sometimes cringing (hotel room in Miami!) over Kimmy's antics. She makes her characters relatable and realistic. Kim and Bridget's friendship is fun and sincere and I got sucked in feeling like a friend of theirs and relating to their different issues (and wanting to intervene in their argument!).
If you're looking for a fun, romantic, funny story, look no further! It will have you cheering all the way!
