Reviews When Life Gives You Lululemons (The Devil Wears Prada, #3)

  • Mackenzie - Traveling Sister
    Everyone’s favorite ex-assistant Emily Charlton is back and just as sassy as ever!!If any character deserved their own book, Emily would be among the top on my list! This book is positively delightful, and introduces two new co-leading ladies who are the perfect complement to Emily. Lauren Weisberger sure knows how to write a trendy book with surprisingly deep social commentary on the insecurity underlying all of the glitz, glamour, and money w...

    4.5 hilarious laugh out loud stars🎉This was a seriously funny, and slightly irreverent look motherhood, the suburbs, and how life changes with age. Throw in a juicy scandal and it’s all good fun! Full of slapstick moments with a dash of serious topics, it has the perfect balance for a great beach read. Emily is back and funnier than ever - I love her and her seriously snarky, blunt personality. And who can’t love a cameo from The Devil, Mi...

    Sometimes you need the perfect, lighthearted and hilarious read to cleanse that thriller palate and this book does the job! I haven't read The Devil Wears Prada but I have seen the movie and it's one of my favorites. I DID read Weisberger's The Singles Game back in 2016 and absolutely loved it so was THRILLED when this copy came in the mail for me!This book brings in Emily, Miranda Priestley's ex-assistant, as an image consultant to the stars who...

    This is my first book by Lauren Weisberger. These housewives are over the top!! But it was a fun read and let’s you see how the “other side” lives! Lol I really loved Emily’s character - she was witty and had some great off the top statements to make!! She didn’t care who heard it - she just told it like it was! I received this ARC from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.

    I have to say that so far the summer books I’ve had the pleasure of reading have really been outstanding, I think there’s always a small group of amazing books released each summer but this year I feel like the stakes have been raised, and Weisberger took things to a whole new level with this one. If you’re a fan of The Devil Wears Prada (and seriously, who isn’t?!) you’ll gobble this one up. If you’re new to this series you’ll stil...

    Emily Charlton---the same Emily who worked for Miranda Priestly (in The Devil Wears Prada)---is now a publicity manager to the stars. She's a pro at smoothing over delicate situations for Hollywood elite, but, unfortunately, lately she's losing customers to a younger, hipper version of herself. Frustrated and in a rut, she jumps at the chance to help Connecticut-based Karolina Hartwell, a former supermodel turned senator's wife, who's just been ...

  • Marla
    When Life Gives You Lululemons is a great continuation of Emily’s story after Runway and Miranda Priestly. I enjoyed this so much better than book two in this series. Emily is as snarky and rude as ever and her life professional life is falling apart. Then there is Karolina, a supermodel married to a senator. Karolina gets arrested and charged with a DUI that seems super fishy. All aspects of her life are falling apart. Then there is Miriam, a ...

    4.5/5 starsWhen Life Gives You Lululemons is Chick Lit. It is a Devil Wears Prada novel. This is a charming book that will make you laugh and smile. I really liked it!I have read all of Lauren Weisberger's previous books. So I was excited to see that she had a new book coming out. I absolutely love the title of this book. And it is actually relevant to the story.I think that many people will wonder whether this book can be read as a standalone. I...

    I've got to say, I'm loving this current trend of bringing beloved characters back to life! I absolutely loved being reacquainted with Emily Charlton from The Devil Wears Prada. And, I'm happy to say, she has not lost her spunk! In When Life Gives You Lululemons, Emily is a high-powered image consultant to the stars. After losing a few clients, she travels to Greenwich, CT for a visit with her best friend and some downtime to lick her wounds. Her...
  • Callie (BeverageandBook)
    When Life Gives you Lululemons is the third installment in the Devil Wears Prada Series. I haven’t read the previous novels, but I’m a big fan of the movie and I was all about trying this out.The book follows three points of view:1. Emily, Miranda Priestley’s former assistant, years down the road after she’s established a career as a publicity manager to celebrities. 2. Miriam, an excellent friend, who has given up her law career to settl...

    The author via NetGalley provided a copy of the ePub in exchange for an honest review.When Life Gives You Lululemons is a truly entertaining Chick Lit by Lauren Weisberger. Emily Charlton is back. She was Miranda Priestly’s assistant in the novel The Devil Wears Prada and she is currently married, living in Hollywood and an image consultant. Circumstances change everything and she is transported to Connecticut where she is reconnected with her ...

    I loved “Devil Wears Prada” so much I was a little nervous to read this book but I loved it. It was hilarious and a little bitchy, just as I like it. Also, now I want a mini and impractical Chloé fur vest.
  • 3 no 7
    “When life gives you Lululemons” by Lauren Weisberger is part of “The Devil Wears Prada” series, but I had no trouble following it without having read any of the previous books. The book details the trials of living high-profile lives while trying to keep sanity and sense of humor. 2018 is not starting out on a good note for friends Emily, Karolina, and Miriam. Emily works in Hollywood as an image consultant to the stars; in reality, she ...

    Thank you to Simon & Schuster and Netgalley for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved, loved the Devil Wears Prada. I liked the followup. I enjoyed this one. Emily was my favorite character in Devil Wears Prada even though she is insufferable. She is snarky, quick witted, and blunt. In this installment, Emily is called in to do damage control for Karolina-- a Senator's wife arrested for a DUI she didn't actually ...
  • Meredith Schorr
    Lauren Weisberger is back in top form with her newest book. It's witty, smart, sharp, and edgy, but packed with heart. I was hesitant to read it because I'd been underwhelmed by Revenge Wears Prada and hated to be disappointed by a favorite author. I'm so happy to report that I thoroughly enjoyed this read. I adored all three of the main characters and while I cringed at some of the "activities" the Connecticut couples engaged in, I was beyond sa...

    When Life Gives You Lululemons is a follow-up to Lauren Weisberger’s The Devil Wears Prada. I've been a fan of Weisberger's novels and really enjoyed this one. Emily, which we've known in TDWP, is back in new adventures.A good easy-to-read.Thank you Net Galley and Simon and Schuster Canada for providing me with this ARC.
  • Lindsay Williams (Bibbidi Bobbidi Bookworm)
    When I first read The Devil Wears Prada by Laura Weisberger several years ago, I loved Andy Sachs…and kind of hated Emily Charlton. For those who have read The Devil Wears Prada, you probably understand. For those of you who haven’t, just imagine the most condescending, hateful coworker you have ever had…and multiply the negativity of their attitude by a thousand…and you have Emily Charlton. By the end of the book, she had grown on me, bu...

    I was provided with a free e-copy of this novel though Netgalley by the publisher in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts expressed below are my own!Synopsis:I'm sure you've heard of A Devil Wears Prada and either read the book, seen the movie, or both. When Life Gives You Lululemons is written in the Devil Wears Prada universe and reintroducing yourself to those characters (or at least Miranda and Emily) will definitely help you enjoy thi...

    Also published at Desert Island Book Reviews.I’ve read most of Lauren Weisberger’s books, and I generally enjoy them. They’re light and fluffy, and they’re almost always super quick reads. They’re brain candy, the kind of books I need to read in the middle of more serious ones so I don’t go crazy. This one is no different, though it wasn’t entirely what I expected.When Life Gives You Lululemons is a follow-up to Weisberger’s hit n...

    ** A copy of When Life Gives You Lululemons was provided by the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review **RATING: 3.5 starsI have to admit that my expectations weren’t very high for this one. I’ve been following Lauren Weisberger’s career since the beginning. The Devil Wears Prada is one of those iconic, everyone can quote it (if not from the book then certainly from the movie) pop culture phenoms. It’s the book/movie tha...
  • Kaylie (shihtzus.and.book.reviews)
    Have you ever read a book that was exactly what you needed at the time that you needed it? That’s exactly what this book was. It was fun, it was superficially entertaining, it was an amazing example of a rom com movie, in book form.I didn’t actually read The Devil Wears Prada (I watched the movie - Meryl Strep is the greatest of all), so I can say that this book can be read as a stand-alone with minimal confusion. I have added The Devil Wears...

    It's like Beverly housewives meet the real world.Three women with 3 different sets of circumstances who navigate their way as best they can in the rocky road of "old tobacco road" drama.Everyone seems to have an opinion and everyone seems to try to solve the complexities whether it's career change after job loss, marriage, child rearing, infidelity, pregnancy , or those darn pesky dui issues.Remember when as a mother you used to say," I wish ther...

    I truly enjoyed this spin off of Devil Wears Prada, where Emily Charlton is now a publicity manager to celebrities. Lately though, a competitor has been stealing her business causing her to have somewhat of a midlife crisis. Fortunately, her longtime friend, Miriam introduces her to Karolina, a previous model who has been blackmailed by her senator husband, and needs Emily's help. Together, the 3 ladies, learn about life in Greenwhich, CT, suppor...

    I feel like I should bow my head in shame. I've never read any of the Devil Wears Prada books. But I have watched the movie more times than I can count, and can recite chunks of dialog. Even though I missed out on the first two books of the series, I LOVED When Life Gives You Lululemons. I was hooked from the very first page snarky page until the last. I couldn't put the book down. I loved the characters - some, like Miriam, were so relatable, an...
  • Michelle
    This was a fun book and should go on your reading list for the summer! It's light and funny while it tells a story of three women who circle the wagons when one of them gets wronged. While they are all a little different, they exemplify a true friendship and don't give up on each other. And the parties in Greenwich are hysterical. Every neighborhood has its share of craziness but surely none like this one!Thank you to NetGalley and Simon and Schu...

    Amazing! Loved it! Can't say enough great things! I won't lie, I am a HUGE Devil Wears Prada fan and when I heard about this book I was dying to read it! When my wish was granted I stopped everything and read it morning, noon and night. Emily is nasty, mean and I LOVE it! She tells it like it is and she doesn't care if she makes you cry. She'll just tell you to toughen up. HAHAIn this book we meet Karolina and Miriam and learn about their issues ...

    Emily is back again and she is better than ever! I love the Devil Wears Prada books, and this book is a great continuation of that series. This is a quick, fun beach read, with just enough intrigue and just enough characters you will love.... and love to hate. If you are a fan of Emily, and who isn't??, you need to pick up this book this summer! I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
