Copygirl by Anna Mitchael and Michelle Sassa

I really enjoyed this book. I thought they were right when they described it as Mad Men meets The Devil Wears Prada. I mean, I haven’t watched too much of Mad Men, but I’ve seen The Devil Wears Prada and read the book countless times. Kay is just like Andy if Andy had more females friends and a family.
I thought the book was a perfect mix of empowerment for women going after what they want and believing in themselves mixed with the nonmagical reality of reality. Although I knew how the book was going to end early on in the book, I enjoyed it anyway. I thought the dialogue was great. I love how Kay talks to a lot of the secondary characters and that each secondary character has a purpose to her life and the life of the novel.
Overall, I thought the story was so creative. Kay’s hobbies are different and unique and I loved that. Her best friend, Kell, is so supportive of her and her dreams while embarking on her own in Paris. I just couldn’t put this book down and I totally recommend picking it up. Right now, the book is on sale for $11.64!
Favorite Quotes:
  • “I like to look at the buildings and wonder who’s still in them and who’s like me – trying to prove that she deserves a place here.”
  • “‘Tonight, you are going to get your sexy on, a little eyeliner, some blush, perfume, and for the love of all that is good and inspired by Vogue, take down that ponytail and brush that mess.'”
  • “For as long as I can remember, it’s been my go-to medium for getting out the words I would warble if I tried to say them out loud.”
  • “The last thing I want to see is the chrome reflection of a silly, silly girl who makes a living off words but refuses to see the writing on the wall.”
  • “‘Whatever it is you’re looking for, you won’t find it here.’ She gestures toward Canal Street, to the activity all around us. ‘You’ve got to find it in you.'”
  • “I want to tell him I don’t belong in this city. That the buildings are too tall, the people are too determined, the pace is too relentless. That no one notices me here – not just strangers, but people who matter, like Ben.”
  • “Every time I make eye contact with Peyton I’m amazed all over again at how perfect her liquid eyeliner is.”
  • “They just remind me of the girl I was and the men I knew.”
