I’m going to let you in on a little secret—I love the bargain bin at Barnes & Noble.
I should be better about borrowing books from the library, but instead I find myself in my local store sorting through my options there. I like being able to read without the pressure of a due date, and at about $5 a pop, the price is hard to beat. Everything that ends up in the bargain bin used to be a best seller, so you’re guaranteed a good beach read. This is what I picked up on my latest haul.
Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns:I was a sucker for Lauren Weisberger novels long before the movie The Devil Wears Prada hit the big screen, and even though this one got slammed by the critics it’s still an awesome read in my book. I love how Wesiberger revives both Emily and Andrea in this book, and puts them right into Miranda’s path again—I can just see Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt acting it out in my head.
Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger: Not going to lie, ladies—I picked this one up because I was intrigued by the title. I knew I had to buy it when I realized the protagonist worked at a bridal shop in Middleburg, Virginia, which is about half an hour from where I currently live. Highlighting a love triangle between her and two brothers, this is definitely a wonderful read to bring to the pool near you.
Family Pictures: I have been meaning to pick up a Jane Green book for a long time. I mean, hello, I am a sucker for chick lit, and Jane Green basically is reigning queen. This one was sitting front and center in the bargain bin, and the story line seemed very Liane Moriarty to me—which you know I love. Following the story of two almost-empty-nester women on opposite coasts, this novel didn’t disappoint which a few plot twists that connect these two protagonists.
Ladies’ Night: You guys. This is a novel about a lifestyle blogger. This book could have been 300 pages of complete crap and I still would have paid $5.98 plus tax for it. Luckily for me, it was not. The story follows, Grace, who finds out her husband has been cheating and ends up moving in with her widowed mother. Hilarity ensues, and this light-hearted read is a good testament to the curve balls life can throw your way.
I’d love to know—what’s been on your nightstand as of late?
