I have wanted to read something by Candace Bushnell for ages. This was the first one of her books I grabbed off the bookshelf. And boy am I glad I did.
Lipstick Jungle is about three strong and powerful New York women. Nico is a magazine executive who is in the process for lining herself up to be CEO. Victory is fashion designer at the helm of a globally successful design house. And Wendy is the president of a top movie production company. Lipstick Jungle takes you inside the personal and professional lives of these three self-made moguls as they navigate through some of the most pivotal and life changing events of their entire careers.
I read Lipstick Jungle in two days. I could not put it down. I lost sleep, but it was worth it. This fast-paced novel was much fun to read. These women came alive on the pages, and watching them persevere with strength and grace was not just entertaining, but also empowering.
Hands down one of the better books I've read in a while. Read this one.
Note: As naturalnchicmakeup pointed out there was also a show. The show stunk. I think I watched one episode. So bad I erased it from my memory. But I'm glad I forgot about that show or I would not have picked up the book. The book was better. For sure.
