MINI-REVIEW: I received an advance copy, and I have to tell you–this is by far one of the best how-to makeup books I have ever had the pleasure to read and drool over. It’s formatted in such an easy-to-use way, and there are tips and tricks a’plenty. I’m so glad to have this book in my beauty arsenal! If you want to purchase yours, head on over to your favorite book retailer; notable ones like Amazon and Barnes & Noble have this book at a steal (just over $20!).
Jodi Wing debuts her first novel today, The Art of Social War ($13.95). It’s a guilty-pleasure novel about Hollywood high society. The premise centers around 35 year old Stacey Knight, who lives and breathes New York who wants to marry her fiance, Jamey while succeeding in her career. A change in Stacey’s company requires her and Jamey to relocate to Los Angeles, and so begins their foray into the “social war.”
I’m only a few chapters into the novel so far, but I’m liking Jodi’s writing style and the premise of the book. The perspective does remind me a little of USA’s The Starter Wife–just in the sense that it’s mature enough for a broad audience, but still interspersed with good humor and anecdotes. I always feel revitalized after reading a good story, ready to jump back into my regular, everyday routines.
Witty, smart, and brimming with behind-the-scene intrigue, THE ART OF SOCIAL WAR is both a cautionary tale of what goes on inside the gates of Hollywood and a fiercely entertaining portrayal of what happens when “East meets West.”
And guess what? Two lucky readers will win their own copies of The Art of Social War! Just leave a comment, and two random winners will be chosen on November 19, 2008 11:59 PST!
