Living The Dream! by Lauren Berry out 6th July 2017
Happy Publication Day!
I’m almost finished this book and have to admit I am enjoying it very much, it’s one of those books that you don’t want to end.
My review will follow very soon, but here is the synopsis for your information;
Emma Derringer is an assistant at an advertising agency in London. Most days Emma wears a mask of indifference that disguises either her boredom, her hangover or both. When her overbearing boss isn’t looking she pursues her career as a writer, sending articles, posting blogs and trying to get noticed for her talent, instead of mistakes on her PowerPoint presentations.
Clementine Twist arrives home from a stint in New York with a hefty overdraft, a crushed heart and a waning confidence in her budding career as a screenwriter. She moves in with her mum, gets a job in a bar and spends her days composing emails to agents, producers and anyone who might help her onto the slippery ladder of the film industry.
As their 30s loom and the freedom and fun of their 20s gives way to the adult pressures of job satisfaction and perceived success, Emma and Clem realise it’s time to ramp up their efforts, and think about quitting the day job.
I highly recommend this book, if you like humour, strong female characters and real life situations all wrapped up together.
