Friday Reads Book Club: Jen Lancaster


If this is your first time joining us, we are a weekly book review link up. This is the place for people to go when they are searching for a new book or want to share one that they recently read. I’m collaborating with three other amazing Arizona bloggers: Sarah at Neroli Blossoms and Megan and Joann at  A Whimsicle Life, to bring you a full review of a different book every week.

As a reminder, this “book club” is intended to create a community where we can all share fantastic books that we read and want to recommend to others. Each week, one of the blogger hosts will write a review of an outstanding book. We will also have a linkup each week where fellow bloggers can post book reviews and recommendations.

We encourage you to:

  • Visit the host’s blog, check out each week’s book review, and leave a comment with your thoughts.
  • Post your own book review in our linkup. (Please link back to us on your own post when you do!!
  • Also, grab our Friday Reads badge to let everyone know you are participating!)


  • Visit other blogger’s reviews that are posted in the linkup and leave a comment on their post.

Books By: Jen Lancaster

This is the story of what happens when you bring a Prada bag into an unemployment office.

Jen Lancaster had it all – a chic penthouse in Chicago, a six figure salary, closets full of designer clothing and accessories, weekly manicures and pedicures, a great guy, and a snarky wit. But after getting laid off in the post September 11 recession, she suddenly finds herself in a whole new arena. She goes from daily shopping sprees to suddenly not having health insurance and moving into an apartment in the ghetto. From there it gets worse when her boyfriend (who becomes her husband during this time) loses his job, they lose their car, and they almost are evicted from their ghetto apartment and have to move back in with her parents. And yes, there is a point where she actually goes to the unemployment office while carrying a Prada handbag. Needless to say, the encounter does not go well.

Be sure to check out the rest of Sarah’s review by visiting Neroli Blossoms……..These books look AWESOME! I will be reading one!
