Waiting On Wednesday: LAST NIGHT AT CHATEAU MARMONT

I got back from Sardinia a couple of days ago (ooh, it was lovely), but I've been so busy with real life ever since that I've hardly had time to be online! I feel completely out of the loop and I really must catch up this weekend!

Anyway, this week I'm waiting on Lauren Weisberger's next book and I've been waiting to post about it ever since I first heard about it ages ago, but I was just waiting for the cover to be released, which it was a few days ago. I don't find the cover particularly mindblowing (I mean, it's alright), but I looove the sound of the book and cannot wait to read it - it's out in paperback (yay!) in May in the US and in June in the UK!

LAST NIGHT AT CHATEAU MARMONT
by Lauren Weisberger
Two college sweethearts are living a happy, rather ordinary life in New York but there's a slight twist – she's the breadwinner, supporting her musician boyfriend. Until the tables are turned when he's discovered by a Sony exec and their worlds are turned upside down.
Soon they are holidaying in the Hamptons, adorning the cover of Vanity Fair and attending every glitzy party in town – all the while his career is reaching new, dizzying heights. But the trappings of this elite lifestyle mean our heroine must face the wrath of the US press. Scorned for having a less-than-perfectly-honed LA body and brutalised for being 'ordinary' things couldn't get any worse…
Then news erupts that her best friend, who's been her confidante through these months of misery, has sold her innermost secrets to the press and her life spirals out of control.
She finds solace in a secret support group: The Civilian Ex-Wives and Girlfriends of Celebrities Group – a place to gossip, lubricated with lashings of shared experiences and strong cocktails. As this sassy group right the wrongs of their past relationships, our heroine must decide if she's going to sink or swim.

hehe! I saw the cover of this last night and added it on librarything. I'm saving it for a future WoW. Should be a fun summer read! The cover is pretty tacky, though.

I love her covers, they're so cute. This book sounds like a lot of fun. I really enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada. I should try more of her stuff.

I can't wait for this book! I've had a hold placed on it at the library for a month now (I think I was the first person!)

Spoilers...
Just a couple of points of accuracy - the couple are not college sweethearts, they met in a pub at one of Julian's gigs. Also, it's not her best friend who sold her out. And she only goes to one meeting of the 'exs' group, and walks out halfway through.
