Review: When Life Gives You Lululemons by Lauren Weisberger is the third book of The Devil Wears Prada series, but it’s the first book I’ve read from Lauren Weisberger. I tried to read The Devil Wears Prada before reading When Life Gives You Lululemons, but I couldn’t get myself to finish it because I despised Andy’s character even though I loved the movie. I skipped the second book, Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, due to the terrible reviews and that I couldn’t finish the first book. When Life Gives You Lululemons follows Emily, Miriam, and Karolina. Emily, the famous ex-assistant of Miranda Presley, is an image consultant, but finds herself losing business to a younger social media savvy competitor. Miriam, the link between Emily and Karolina, just quit her job as a lawyer in New York, moves out to the suburbs with her family, and finds herself trying to adjust to her new life as a stay home mom. While Karolina, a former supermodel and married to a U.S. Senator, suddenly gets arrested for a DYI while driving her son and his friends. She finds herself consulting her best friends, Miriam and Emily, trying to salvage her reputation. Overall, this was a decent read. I definitely preferred this over The Devil Wears Prada. I loved how different each of the main characters were yet it made sense why they are such close friends. I liked how this novel shows female friendship in a positive light and also shows women in different stages of their lives. It was an entertaining yet somewhat relatable read. I would definitely recommend if you’re looking for something lighthearted and fun to read this summer! The book debuts on Tue 6/5/18.
