If the shoe fits…. Her books will “wear” it!

By Tiffany Schlarman

In July, I had the opportunity to review an ARC of “Last Night at Chateau Marmont” by Lauren Weisberger. The book was wonderful and, as expected, the cover had a killer pair of shoes that fit the book perfectly!

Lauren Weisberger seems to have a knack for fitting the perfect shoe to her novels. In “The Devil Wears Prada,” Lauren matches a simple red stiletto, whose heel is a pitchfork. The shoe is stylish, hot, sexy and RED! Everything about it screams “devilish, beware”. Once you finish reading the book, you can’t imagine a better shoe for the cover. The same principle follows suit for “Everyone Worth Knowing,” which pairs itself with a sexy party heel suitable for events of glamour and for “Chasing Harry Winston,” which pairs itself with a white fur heel adorned with three large diamonds. It is classic, expensive and intriguing.

It seems that Lauren completely understands her fans and readers. Aside from the shoes, fashion, events and every day life the stories hold, each of her books have a quality that makes them uniquely Lauren, but also differ in regards to the story line. This keeps the reader intrigued and unsure of what to expect next from her. From the moment I picked up “The Devil Wears Prada” I have been a fan of Lauren Weisberger's. Each novel is new and exciting to me. I am never sure what to expect next, but I do know I will always find an awesome shoe on the cover with a story to match! That’s pretty much enough for this reading-writing-shopping-shoe fanatic.

I hope to soon meet Lauren on tour, but until then I’ll just have to focus on the shoes and spreading the word about her newest novel, “Last Night at Chateau Marmont” which was a wonderful read! I highly recommend it to chick-lit readers and Lauren’s fans. Just as I am unable to pick a single favorite pair of shoes, I cannot pick a single favorite book from Lauren. It’s part of what makes her a great author and a favorite of mine to read!

She is one of my all-time favorite authors...I always can take a break in my day by reading her books and smile every time. :-)

I'm waiting for the new one to come in paperback...her books are a staple for me when I travel for work. I just read them over and over again and the stories never get old. :-)
