Spotlight and Giveaway: Park Avenue Summer

For the past couple of years, The Bold Type has been a hit summer series on Freeform and Hulu. The magazine on the show is modeled after Cosmopolitan, so fans of The Bold Type will appreciate Renee Rosen's latest novel, Park Avenue Summer. Then again, fans of historical and women's fiction will also appreciate it. You can learn more about it here today and thanks to Berkley, we have a copy to give away!

It’s 1965 and Cosmopolitan magazine’s brazen new editor-in-chief—Helen Gurley Brown—shocks America and saves a dying publication by daring to talk to women about all things off-limits...

New York City is filled with opportunities for single girls like Alice Weiss, who leaves her small Midwestern town to chase her big-city dreams and unexpectedly lands the job of a lifetime working for the first female editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, Helen Gurley Brown.

Nothing could have prepared Alice for the world she enters as editors and writers resign on the spot, refusing to work for the woman who wrote the scandalous bestseller Sex and the Single Girl, and confidential memos, article ideas, and cover designs keep finding their way into the wrong hands. When someone tries to pull Alice into a scheme to sabotage her boss, she is more determined than ever to help Helen succeed. While pressure mounts at the magazine and Alice struggles to make her way in New York, she quickly learns that in Helen Gurley Brown's world, a woman can demand to have it all.

I know I'm dating myself saying this but I love Good Housekeeping. When I was in my 20's and 30's I couldn't live without Cosmo. Oh how things change.

I’m a magazine junkie! I subscribe to about 12. (What can I say, I love paper.) I’d have to pick ELLE as my favorite Women’s Magazine.
