GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: Almost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job “a million girls would die for” working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine—a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a high end bridal magazine, The Plunge, which has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her heart’s content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro.
Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple. Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma’s a bitch.
The morning of her wedding, Andy can’t shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread. Andy realizes that nothing—not her husband, nor her beloved career—is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago—and directly into the path of the devil herself…
It’s always nice when there’s a sequel to a great book, but sometimes it can better if the original is left alone aswell.
I think The Devil Wears Prada was a great stand alone novel but this sequel to it was also a good way to show us readers what Andy ended up doing with her life after Runway magazine.
The twists that incurred in the 10 years that had passed since her Runway days were quite ironic but were appropriate to make this sequel interesting.
The ending was very ‘happily ever after’ and predictable throughout the whole novel – it was simply a matter of how and when will it happen.
This sequel hasn’t had too many good reviews but I found it an enjoyable, easy read – just like The Devil Wears Prada really. They were quite similar.
For those who enjoyed both these books aswell as the movie adaptation of The Devil wears Prada, you might be interested to know that there is talk to turn this sequel novel into a movie soon too, which I think should definitely be done!
I would love to hear what you thought of these books or even the movie!
