Giveaway: “Revenge Wears Prada”

The Devil returns…

ok_060413_news_revenge-wears-prada-news

Last week, Lauren Weisberger–author of The Devil Wears Prada and creator of the greatest villain of the modern age, Miranda Priestly–released the much-anticipated sequel, Revenge Wears Prada.  The plot is summarized thusly:

Almost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job “a million girls would die for” working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine—a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a highend bridal magazine. The Plunge has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her heart’s content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro.

Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple. Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma’s a bitch. The morning of her wedding, Andy can’t shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread. Andy realizes that nothing—not her husband, nor her beloved career—is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago—and directly into the path of the devil herself…

Well, doesn’t that just sound like the perfect summer read?

I, of course, purchased my Kindle copy as soon as the release date was announced.  Then, the fine people at Simon & Schuster and BrandlinkPR each sent me a copy.  So I thought I would share the wealth and give them away.

If you would like a chance a copy of Revenge Wears Prada, leave a comment answering the following question:  Which job do you consider the one that “a million girls would kill for”?

Winners will be chosen on Saturday, please don’t forget to leave your real email addresses when you sign in to leave a comment so I can contact you.

P.S. Here’s hoping they make a sequel to the movie as well.  “By all means, move at a glacial pace.  You know how it thrills me.”

    Well, if we’re watching romantic comedies, obviously that job is Art Gallery Assistant/Assistant Curator.

    But honestly, how can anyone say “all women want job X?” I have a cousin whose dream is to be a model. I wanted to run for Congress when I was 17 (a dream shared by most of my female friends at GW when we were freshmen) and now I want to be a doctor. Maybe travel writer? I can’t think of many people who would turn that down.

    I’m in need of a good summer read- This would definitely fit the bill!

    I think the kind of job you’d kill for depends on your state of mind. Normally I’d say West Wing… but in my current over-worked frame of mind, the job I’d kill for is to be a travel writer with an unlimited budget. Stay at the best hotels, eat at the best restaurants, and always have a new beach waiting to be visited.

    I want to go to there.
