Everyone maybe worth knowing

On our trip back from Kentucky, I started reading a book I had picked up a few months ago, Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger.

Let me go ahead and throw it out there that I'm a speed reader. I had 3/4 of the book done in about 4 hours... and I LOVED it. I was totally into the book, wanted the characters to be real life best friends, you know all that good stuff. With that being said, once I got back I didn't have as much free time and didn't get to finish the book until last night.

Maybe it's just me, but honestly I was a little bit disappointed. I was hooked on the book, but the last like two chapters just kinda let me down. I feel like lots of details were left out and the end was hurried. Has anyone else read this? Did you have the same feeling?

All in all, I would totally recommend this book, it's a great chick lit beach read and that's exactly what I was looking for! I absolutely loved the author's other book, Chasing Harry Winston, and adore the movie The Devil Wears Prada (although I haven't read the book). I can definitely see the similarities between DWPrada and Everyone Worth Knowing though, they seem to have very similar main characters!

Next up I'm going to move along to something recommended by you guys!

I felt the same way - it felt like the author was like - oh it's long enough, let's just end it.

I agree... it was highly entertaining until the end.

I read this one a couple years ago and wasn't thrilled. I guess after "the Devil wears Prada" my expectations were too high.

I loved all three of those books!! She's a great author. Have you read Emily Giffin's books? They are fantastic too.

I totally agree! The ending was horrible. And I felt like Everyone Worth Knowing and The Devil Wears Prada were the exact same book, only the girls worked different jobs.

I liked all three books as well. I read them so long ago, I don't remember how I felt about the ending. Overall a great book!
