The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational #1 bestseller The Devil Wears Prada.Eight years have passed since Andrea “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. Now Andy’s on the top of the world: she’s writing and reporting to her heart’s content; running The Plunge, her wildly successful high fashion bridal magazine with Miranda’s other ex-assistant, Emily; and most importantly, getting married to the scion of a storied media family and the love of her life. But the night before her wedding, Andy can’t sleep. As happy as she is—as happy as she should be—she’s still haunted by the specter of her former boss. Maybe it’s survivor syndrome? Or maybe it’s justifiable, self-inflicted, paranoia. From the start, Andy and Emily have felt entitled to use their rolodex of contacts—Miranda’s contacts—from Runway as they make their way in the magazine world. As The Plunge succeeds, Andy and Emily realize they’ll soon come face to face with their former tormenter at industry functions, award ceremonies, and even weddings. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching—a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more. Karma’s a bitch. And Andy’s efforts to build a bright new life have led her directly to the one she fled—and into the path of the Devil herself.

Meh. This story was just okay. Yeah, it picks up where Devil Wears Prada left off but it isn't all that exciting. It's just a story. Miranda's snark just turned into weird passive aggressive behavior in this one. Andy got soft(er) and kinda boring, and Emily reverted back to her bitchy ways. There r...
Here's a conversation I had with a friend regarding the first 30% of this book: “Andy, you’re overreacting—” NO SHIT YOU'RE OVERREACTING. It is one thing to read about a self-absorbed rhymes-with-itch when it comes to YA fiction, it is another thing entirely to encounter such a pitiful, sorry exc...
I will hide my whole review because I've been told I have a tendency of dropping spoilers without intending to and I wouldn't want to do so. So, here goes...I hated this book. I really just did. It was the most poorly written thing I have ever picked up, as well as the most pointless. As I have writ...
2.8 starsToo many flashbacks which weren't done well. A very disappointing sequel to a very good book. Looks like it was hastily written as the characters' personalities were.. off. The changes after ten years were also not believable.Oh well, at least Max was sweet. Nevermind that he's one-dimensio...
If you've seen the film version of The Devil Wears Prada, you'll be unable to read its sequel Revenge Wears Prada without having Meryl Streep acting all of Miranda Priestly's scenes in your head. The same goes with Anne Hathaway as Andy Sachs and Emily Blunt as Emily. And therein, for me, lies the b...
