Book Review: Chasing Harry Winston

  Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger

Summary: These three very different girls have been best friends for a decade in the greatest city on earth. As they near thirty, they're looking toward their future...but despite all they've earned — first-class travel, career promotions, invites to all the right parties, and luxuries small and large — they're not quite sure they like what they see...
One Saturday night at the Waverly Inn, Adriana and Emmy make a pact: within a single year, each will drastically change her life. Leigh watches from the sidelines, not making any promises, but she'll soon discover she has the most to lose. Their friendship is forever, but everything else is on the table. Three best friends. Two resolutions. One year to pull it off.  {via Goodreads}

Review:  I found this book entertaining. It definitely was not a challenging read, would be perfect as a beach read. I had a difficult time relating to the characters who almost all have the "perfect" life. I thought the characters were a little ridiculous and over the top.  Especially the way Adriana became annoyed when her parents would visit their penthouse when they paid for all her bills, the apartment she lived in and all her other expenses. It took me awhile to get pulled in to the book, and I had to concentrate to finish it. I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.  I think I would have enjoyed it more if I read it on the beach and had gotten a tan out of it. ;)
