Blogger Girl by Meredith Schorr

Blogger Girl by Meredith Schorr
Paperback, 249 pages
Published: August 28th 2013 by Booktrope Editions
Genre: Chick Lit

What happens when your high school nemesis becomes the shining star in a universe you pretty much saved? Book blogger Kimberly Long is about to find out.

A chick lit enthusiast since the first time she read Bridget Jones’s Diary, Kim, with her blog, "Pastel is the New Black," has worked tirelessly by night to keep the genre alive, and help squash the claim that "chick lit is dead" once and for all. Not bad for a woman who by day ekes out a meager living as a pretty, and pretty-much-nameless, legal secretary in a Manhattan law firm.

While Kim's day job holds no passion for her, the handsome (and shaving challenged) associate down the hall is another story. Yet another story is that Hannah Marshak, one of her most hated high school classmates, has now popped onto the chick lit scene with a hot new book that's turning heads--and pages--across the land. It's also popped into Kim's inbox--for review.

With their ten-year high school reunion drawing near, Kim's coming close to combustion over the hype about Hannah’s book. And as everyone around her seems to be moving on and up, she begins to question whether being a “blogger girl” makes the grade in her off-line life. ~~ synopsis from Goodreads

My thoughts about Blogger Girl ~~

Loved it! I could really relate to the main character, book blogger Kimberly Long since, well, I am a book blogger too. So I loved that part of the story. And I loved the way that Meredith portrayed the hard work that goes into being a successful blogger. But I loved the overall story-line too.
'Rob's recent takeover of a high-profile litigation was definitely getting in the way of my blogging.' 
Boy, I know how that feels. It's rough when the 'real' job gets in the way of blogging!

Blogger Girl is chick-lit at it's best. There's the high school popular girl, who was a sworn enemy, and who is now trying to be friends, mainly because she wants something; the potential romantic involvement and all that that entails; and the best friends who are always there for each other, no matter what. 
"What do most chick lit books have in common?" she asked. Raising her hand, Bridget said, "I know! I know! Designer shoes, lots of cocktails and dating stories from hell."
I loved being a part of Kim's world. She is a spunky gal who thinks she is content with her life until Nicholas starts to notice her. She is rather insecure and doesn't understand what he could ever see in her. And then there is the 'enemy' from high school, Hannah. She wants something from Kim but Kim can't forget about the clashes they had in school.

And I loved the ending of the story. Kim does what any chick-lit character would do. And why not? (no spoiler here, you will have to read Blogger Girl to find out what I am talking about, but it is great!)

This was a wonderful, well written story that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was fun! It was easy to read! It was the first book I have read by Meredith but it won't be my last.

And then, one last quote that really spoke to me. Since I am short too, I loved this line! 
'I would be the first to admit that I drew attention to my chest since, being so short, I needed to give people a reason to look down far enough to see me.'
