This prompt made me think of Fashion industry novels.... and this one that‘s been on my radar for a little while...
Added it to my #tbr after seeing a great review by @LauraBeth and I think I‘ll read it for #pop19 for a book by two female authors...

LauraBeth They nailed what it‘s like to work in the magazine industry! ❤️ 11mo

We Millennials are not all this abysmal. Eve's behavior is not a millennial problem, it's an entitled, privileged person problem and they come in all age ranges. I didn't hate it, but my god was she irritating.

This book is close to being too true about ageism & technology in today‘s world. It was super funny at times & heart breaking at others. It‘s a good read! #LitsyAtoZ #LetterK

“Have we all become so desperate to share everything that we‘ve stopped enjoying our lives?”

I enjoy a good satire. This didn‘t have me LOLing quite as much as their other collaboration, Fitness Junkie, but it was still smart and clever. This pokes fun at techie millennials, social media, and ageism but also hits a lot of positive notes. It‘s a good palate cleanser (and lord knows I needed one after those couple of Manson books).

Scarlett_ohara Sounds like a great read! 2y

Combining prompts with my current ebook. 👍🏻 Fashion magazine editor Imogen Tate goes on medical leave only to return to an office filled with millennial techies and an app-based, completely online magazine. She‘s not ready to bow out yet. Cute and funny so far.

World renowned fashion editor Imogene Tate finds her job in danger because her conniving former assistant is coming for her! Not only does she want her job, she wants to turn Imogene's precious magazine into an app as well. An epic battle between Generation X and Generation Y that will have you 😁😂🤣

This was a cute story. Being young and willing to work all day everyday won‘t necessarily get you anywhere, you have to also manage to be a decent person. Work isn‘t everything!

Saw an ad on the Subway today about a FREE audiobook through Penguin Random House! Still trying to figure out the format of the download, looks like you might not be able to listen to it offline. But I'm not gonna pass up on a free audiobook and this one sounds good, with great reviews on Audible! Sort of a "Devil Wears Prada for the digital age".

Tryaudiobooks.com/bookclub and click "Try a free download" if you want it too! ♥️ #audiobook

Kaylamburson Thanks for the tip!! I tried to listen, but I had to stop since you can't adjust the speed. I always need my audiobooks on 1.5x or more speed because I'm inpatient lol 2y
swishandflick @Kaylamburson Bummer! I'm a wimp, I haven't been able to listen to anything faster than 1.25x without it feeling too frantic, haha (edited) 2y
Kaylamburson lol anything slower and it sounds like everyone has been sedated lol. Gentleman in Moscow was 1.75 because that was sooooo slow, but Anna Kendrick's book I had to keep at 1.25 because she is a fast talker lol 2y

swishandflick @Kaylamburson sedated 😂😂😂. That makes sense, how it differs a lot from book to book. I'm listening to the Outlander books now and if it's faster than 1.25x I have a hard time with the different accents. Really great on audio, though!! 2y
Ms_T Thanks for the heads up! Everyone loves a freebie 👍🏻 2y
Kaylamburson Totally makes sense @swishandflick. I can definitely see that for Outlander. 2y

Thought this would be good for reading by the pool. And that is my youngest daughter looking back at me, not a random kid. And, this is my book for #LitsyAtoZ for letter K.

MaleficentBookDragon Looks heavenly. I need to update my #LitsyAtoZ list. 2y

??????? #FeistyFeb #WorkplaceSetting

This was a very fun & charming read that takes place in the hectic high stressed and glitzy magazine world. It's basically "The Devil Wears Prada" for the digital tech-savvy age of today but with a much more sinister villain in my opinion-- Miranda has nothing on Eve Morton!??

Couldn't put it down once I started! Literally witty and hilarious from the very first page. So much better than any fashion novel you have read before.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of a print magazine editor and chief wading her way through the digital world. Loved the hilarious accounts of social media "over sharing" and a glance at how assertive can easily become bat sh*t crazy. Love!

You gotta want to hang in there with a truly heinous human for a while, but she gets her comeuppance. Not my favorite.

Loved this one so much more than I thought I would! A great mix of Devil Wears Prada and Sex and the City. It moved quickly and was fun, even if a few points of the age differences were a bit exaggerated.

Fun, light, fast-paced and vicious, in the tradition of The Devil Wears Prada, with great descriptions of the flaws and foibles of a tech-obsessed workplace. Any non-digital native who ever finds herself confused and just trying to keep up will recognize herself -- and be cheering by the last page.
