    I was lucky to blurb this hilarious read. Pitched as a mix of PRIMATES OF PARK AVENUE and WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LULULEMONS, this certainly delivered. Here's what I wrote: Littlefield and Gershell have hatched a witty, wise romp through the lives of the status-seeking parents and would...

    What a book! This is certainly one of those novels where the main characters (well, really, all of the characters) are people that you love to hate. Offering a glimpse into what it's like to live with money in NYC, Littlefield and Gershall have created the rare book that makes you crin...

    All the laugh-out-loud, snarky, fun stars to That?s What Frenemies are For! Being a self-professed SoulCycle freak (there?s just no other way to describe it), when I heard a book was coming out centered around New York City boutique fitness (namely, spin), I knew I had to get m...

    So fun! It was tough to put this one down, and I understand all of the reviewers who said they didn't -- that they read it in a day. So much to love about this drop-in to Manhattan society and status warfare, mixed with the dialed-up ridiculous 'religion' of Soul Cycle. It's a well-dre...

    Once you start this book, be prepared to not want to put it down until the very last page. The pacing is quick, the twists and turns are plentiful, the road is unpredictable, and the drama is high. I have not been this invested in a book in a long time. While I initially disliked Julia...

    The authors artfully portray a cast of socialite, self-absorbed, vacuous, vicious, catty, pretentious, and superficial women. Julia is a wealthy mom who has the worst summer dilemma: she has to stay in NYC instead of retreating to the playgrounds of the wealthy. To amuse herself and en...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I'm so glad I finished this book as the first half felt a bit slow and by the halfway mark, I didn't care for any of the characters, however, the pace of the story elevated in the second half and you quickly understo...

    I had a love/hate relationship with this book; which is to say I HATED that I LOVED it! My favorite line "if people gossip to you, they will gossip about you" we all know is true. That being said, it's ironic that I found myself judging protagonist Julia as she is a socialite in the "i...

    I read this book in one night and I NEVER do that. With delicious twists and bendy turns, I enjoyed the shear fun of it. I happen to love satire on uppity people with status issues and this story slices pretense with surgical precision! I am grateful to the publisher for receiving a ...
