Good for a beach read I read this on the beach and loved it because it was simple and was a guilty pleasure I also always enjoy reading about the bizarre lives of wealthy Manhattans I just can t understand their lifestyle This book was fun and uplifting It was very humorous and a quick read.The book focuses on a woman in her mid forties struggling with getting older she was a preteen daughter and an adulterous best friend. Love it I am a huge chick lit fan love happy endings and far fetched stories This one was great and so far, the most believable story Maybe because the characters are my age, so it was from my point of view so to speak A great read for these hot summer days.

track and away from her lustrous affair while trying to find a good man for herself.The reason I say this is so much like a lot of the books I ve read lately is because much like One Fifth Avenue, we re dealing with wealthy people who live in NY and have affairs And they re in their 40s I don t know why I m attracted to these books, well, yes I do They have pretty colors and titles I absolutely hate infidelity but I m draw to the drama of them in books.I wrote down a lot of things while reading this book, including what I used Tuesday as my teaser.Pg 1 Champagne corks are popping and it s only five a.m That line just struck a cord with me Who wouldn t love to live this life I mean, I don t like 5 a.m at all and recently that what time I ve been getting up even though my alarm is set for 9 30 Maybe my mind keeps thinking about this and hoping I ll wake up to champagne good luck with that.As I get older, I realize that no matter how old you are, there will always be cliques And this book proved it with the Alpha Moms and the line that reads Pg 26 Cliquey girls don t go away they just get older This is so true I don t notice it is as much as I did in school, but they re still there I see it on Facebook and when we go out.I have never really thought much of Botox 1 I am 23 2 I can t imagine spending money on something like yet Yes, I already am noticing wrinkles, but I m stingy with money Maybe if I look like an English Bulldog in a few years, I ll change my mind But until then I ll laugh at quotes like this Pg 184 A little Botox on the forehead Some Cymetra under the cheekbone A couple of shots of Restylane around the lips And CosmoDerm to fill in the laugh lines around your eyes You re lucky, not too much damage yet Two, three dozen injections tops and we re done Cracks me up That is A LOT of injections I guess for a Botox doctor though, theyou pump into a face, theyou get to add to your fund for a new weekend house.I love, love, loved that there was a parent sex ed class in this book There is nothing like that at the school where I went We barely had sex ed, let alone did our parents attend a class and learn how to properly condom a banana.This book was pretty cute and had a lot of great characters from Boulder, the want to be famous surfer, to Jaques, the French ex who is always will be a tool.I have read a couple of Janice Kaplan books before, and I really like her style She s fun, hip and I love that she uses real things She uses real stores, real cars, and real people It s fiction that I can relate to.I didn t however crave this book Yes, I know I just told you some amazing things that would make you think I absolutely loved it, but I didn t It may be once again that I am in wedding mode and am not really focusing But this book was just ok I give it 3 bookmarks `KINDLE ↛ The Botox Diaries ✘ In a world where plastic surgery is as popular as a pair of sexy Manolo Blahniks, suburban single mom Jessica Taylor is trying to make it past
