Now that summer has arrived, most of us have a lot of time on our hands. I certainly do. Normally, I’m the type to read two books per month but due to the craziness of last school year, I haven’t read that much. I figured other people can relate to that, so i made a list of my favorite fashion fiction books that we can read to get back into reading.
Most of these books I have read but here are some I haven’t but I plan to.
1. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
The Shopaholic series is one of my favorites. It’s about a girl named Rebecca Bloomwood who has a writing job at Successful Savings and a shopping addiction at the same time. To pay off her debts she comes up with a ton of funny and charming schemes.
2. Gossip Girl by Cecily Von Ziegesar
Technically this isn’t a fashion related as the show, but I know a lot of people who like fashion love Gossip girl, so I figured I should add it. In case you don’t know, Gossip Girl is about a group of kids (Blair, Serena, Nate, Chuck, Dan, and Jenny) that go to a rich schools on the upper east side of New York.
3. The It Girl by Cecily Von Ziegesar
It’s the spin off of the Gossip Girl book series. In this book series, Jenny Humphrey got kicked out of Constance Billard and s determined to reinvent herself as an It Girl at her new school. She meets a new group of rich, spoiled classmates that slowly become her friends. If you like Jenny Humphrey or the story of girl who tries to fit in constantly, this book is for you.
4. The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weissberger
The book is about a woman who gets hired as a assistant to a mean but powerful fashion magazine editor, and she struggles the whole book to keep up with the demands of her job. It’s allegedly about the author’s time as Anna Wintour’s assistant which is so funny to think about.
5. Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes
The book is about the rich and extravagant life of a heroine known as Moi and her search for love in New York. It’s a witty, funny book that isn’t meant to be taken seriously. Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City, even called it “haute couture chick lit.”
6. Holly Would Dream by Karen Quinn
