The Devil wears Prada and Everyone worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger

The Devil Wears Prada explores the Fashion World from the perspective of the PA of the Editor of Fashion Magazine, Andrea Sachs and Everyone worth Knowing is all about Parties and Celebs where Bette Robinson is an event manager. Both the novels showcases naive and unfashionable ladies who are dropped in the midst of glamour and stardom. They are blinded by the "Lights and Glitter" but they truly never embrace the fabulous but empty life. 

The narrator of both the novels is torn between the Fantasy of her job and the Reality of her previous life and this division is personified by two Hot guys in their life.

The Devil Wears Prada:

Andrea Sachs 

Christian Collinsworth                                     Alex
Hot and Famous writer              an inner-city school teacher

Everyone Worth Knowing:

Bette Robinson
Philip Weston                                                           Sammy
Wealthy, Attractive British Playboy
 Lawyer                                              a bouncer and an aspiring chef

In the whole novel they keep on bouncing from one guy to another and in the end they are left with none!

Personally, I really can't relate with either Andrea or Bette when it comes to guys. Why the hell Andrea leaves Christian? and Why the hell Bette is so obsessed with Sammy? I guess we will never know. 

But aside from stupid Guy choices, the novels are fun, sexy and sassy. Just don't think and don't try to rationalize and you will be fine. It's kinda like reading a bunch of gossip columns.
