(128)Last Night At Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger

What would you do if your husband of five years became a rock star over night. Not just a rock star, but a mega star. We are talking concert tours and Grammy performances. I can't even begin to fathom what that would be like. Lauren Weisberger tries to explain in her new book, Last Night At Chateau Marmont.

Brooke Alter has been married to Julian for five years. She has worked to jobs as a nutritionist to help support them so Julian can focus on his music. Well, it paid off. Someone at Sony noticed and one lucky performance on Leno is all it takes to catapult Julian to super stardom. Brooke is not ready, nor prepared for the negative and positive attention that is given to Julian and their marriage. Will they survive? Or will they become one of those cliche marriages you read about in the tabloid magazines?

I really, really liked this book. I think it was Lauren Weisberger's best book yet. It is a fun read in a "dishy" sort of way. There are a lot of name droppings and backstage insights to what is life as a Rockstar's wife, including the crushing pain Brooke feels as she watches her marriage start to crumble. I admit it, I cried like a baby, but that could have been PMS. LOL.

Bottom line, Last Night At Chateau Marmont is what "Chick Lit" is supposed to be. It is about love, friendship, heartache, and survival. Everything a "Chick" could want in a book!

Good to hear! This will be my first book by the author (even though I saw The Devil Wears Prada and loved it, it's really hard for me to read the book after seeing the movie). Unfortunately the wait is pretty long at my library. Thanks for the review!

I was surprised that I got it as fast as I did from the library, but no complaints from me!

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
