Hey :), hola! Hello, what’s up! Guess what I did over spring break?? ‘Uh huh, that’s right, I spent it watching Barbie movies with my little sister!  But you know what’s better than watching Barbie movies, watching the Ellen DeGeneres show (that’s right Oprah).  Although, I did do some spring reading – just some and not a lot.  I’m proud to say none of the books I read were from Oprah’s Book Club (that’s right Oprah…again)

The book that I read was a best seller for 6, yes 6, months.  It was even turned into a major motion picture (kids younger than the age of 13 are not encouraged to watch this movie due to some use of profanity).  Anyways, it also had major actresses like Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway.  I bet you know which book it is! Yup, it’s Precious Wears Prada.  I mean…The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Wiesberger.  The book takes place in none other that the “Big Apple” – a.ka. New York City.  Our main character, Andrea, has always dreamt of being a writer.  There’s no doubt that she won’t become one since the girl has a P.H.D.  She doesn’t hide her interest of becoming a writer came from a magazine called the New Yorker, and, ever since, it’s been a dream of hers to work for The New Yorker (she’s even read and collected all their articles –CREEPY!). Anyway, one day, Andrea gets interested in a job that will guarantee her a seat writing for The New Yorker. Although, there are two major problems:

  1. The job requires Andrea to have fashion sense, and, between you and me, she barely knows what Gucci is.
  2. It’s simple her boss, Miranda, is CRAZY!

Yup that’s it though she does end up getting the job! After all, Andrea only has to stay in that job, and, after a year, she’s guaranteed to get the job she’s always wanted!  So starts the journey of Andrea and her overly crazy – meant to be in an asylum – boss.  Soon, many opportunities come to Andrea, and she turns into a true fashion know-it-all. She gets free clothes and a make-over.  Soon enough, she notices that her friends and even her boyfriend have come to be very distant. Andrea wonders what if “I really wasn’t one of the million girls who were craving this job.”  Soon, she starts to realize that not only is Miranda a devil, but maybe she’s turning into one too.

Called one of the best books for 6 months The Devil Wears Prada is surely to give you a laugh and maybe make you wonder if your boss is a devil.

(Call me Oprah!)
