To take the spot of ‘a trending book’ in my 2016 book bingo, I read The Knockoff by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza and I LOVED it!
The Knockoff is a story of old vs. new. Experience vs. ingenuity. Imogen vs. Eve. When Imogen (a mid-40s fashion magazine #girlboss) returns to work after a 6 month medical leave, she comes back to find things MUCH different than when she left. Her old assistant, Eve (mid-20s and ready to take over), is back and taking Glossy magazine in a completely new direction… all while trying to edge Imogen out and take her job. While giving an inside look at what life at a fashion magazine/app might be like, you can’t help but cringe at the evil, entitled Eve. Don’t worry- good wins in the end and this book will have you rooting for and relating to a middle-aged woman, no matter what age you currently are.
I really enjoyed reading this one! I heard of it from The Skimm (best daily email ever! Sign up here if you aren’t currently getting this in your inbox!) and I’m glad that it was available at my library! The whole time I was reading it, I kept seeing the story play out like a movie in my head. Complete with a stellar cast. Yes, I have picked out the perfect people to play these roles. I’ll share them with you!
I mean, that’s a good looking cast right there, amIright?!? If you’ve read the book already, what did you think? Did you like it as much as I did? If you haven’t read it yet, you should add it to your TBR (to be read) list ASAP!
