The Glamorous (Double) Life of Isabel Bookbinder
The Glamorous Life of Isabel Bookbinder - Double Author:Holly McQueen Isabel Bookbinder is a twenty-seven-year-old assistant at the Saturday Mercury newspaper in London. She has a disinterested boyfriend, a mother who loves clothes that match, and a father who always expects her to do better. — Although Isabel may spend most of her time measuring newspaper column inches, she's well on her way to becoming... more » a bestselling author. She's already perfected Her Look (cashmere track suit, lots of mascara), is working on her toned size eight figure, and gets up at dawn to work on her novel (well, sort of). She even has a fabulous mentor — a bestselling but increasingly eccentric author who takes her to glamorous book parties and introduces her to the dreamy literary agent Joe Madison. But when she inadvertently exposes a political sex scandal and her name becomes known for all the wrong reasons, her glamorous double life starts to spin out of control.
With her distinctive voice, penchant for getting in sticky situations, and blind confidence in her dream of becoming a famous novelist, Isabel Bookbinder is a heroine that you can't help but root for.« less

I've read other reviews of this book and decided to wait to read it because I was expecting it to be boring or awful. So I let it sit on my shelf for months until I decided to pick it up recently. I was extremely surprised that it was so good! Once I started I couldn't put it down and it had enough plot twists to keep me on my toes throughout. I'll admit that at a few points, Isabel's naive personality got a little tiring, as she keeps getting into more and more messes, but overall I really, really enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read the sequel!
I really enjoyed this book! I thought that Isabel was hilarious! I could relate to her in so many ways. She's the ultimate dreamer. She is so busy daydreaming about her life, that she isn't living it! She has such a fantastic imagination, that her brain can dream beyond her actual abilities! I would definitely recommend this book to others!
