(46)Hunchback of Neiman Marcus by Sonya Sones

There is one thing that all Ladies have in common. We are inevitably going to get older. It is a fact of life. We will all have to deal with Menopause, we will all have to deal with wrinkles, sagging boobs, and empty nest syndrome. It is HOW we deal with those harsh realities that separates us from the beasts. Ladies - you are going to LOVE this book!

Our Heroine, Holly, is really struggling with turning 50. Her only child is about to graduate from high school and go off thousands of miles away to college. She suspects that her husband is having an affair, and her elderly mother is having major medical issues clear across the country. Not to mention her hot flashes and thinning hair do NOT make up for the fact that she no longer needs a diaphragm. And worst of all her boobs are sagging to an all new low. Holly is really having a hard time coming to grip with life after 50. Will she really have to start her life completely over at 50 or can she pull herself and her life together to enjoy everything that she has to be thankful for?

Ladies - seriously - you are going to LOVE this book. The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus is written in a unique poetry style. I had an e-book copy of the ARC so the style might be skewed a little, but it appears as if each page is it's own unique poem. Read individually they have an interesting message, but read collectively they tell a hilarious, yet poignant story of a woman who is not aging as gracefully as she had hoped. Think Shopaholic meets Nora Ephron. Absolutely perfect. You and your friends will laugh with Holly, you will cry with Holly, and you will be glad to know you are not the only one fighting gravity with everything you've got. The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus is on sale today - I can not wait to hear what you think!

I have been tangled in the web of words for a very long time. I remember being a child and riding my bike to the local library, only needing help getting home because I had checked out so many books.~~ My love of the written word has grown over the years. I recently left my dream job at Barnes & Noble to marry the man of my dreams. I am writing this blog to share with you the books I have read throughout the years. Please feel free to comment and discuss.
