is fame really that fabulous?

If you enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada you will absolutely LOVE Lauren Weisberger's latest novel, Last Night at Chateau Marmont.

I love our married couple main characters Brooke and Julian. There story is not unlike many others. New York City, musician Julian trying to break into the music industry in the big bad city. Brooke, trying to be supportive of her husbands dreams financially and emotionally. It's not hard to relate to even if their dreams are different than yours. Dreams are dreams.

Everything changes when Julian lands a record deal and before they know it, the seemingly normal New York City couple are thrown into a world of celebrities and fame. It happens so fast, that it takes Brooke a while to look over the fame, and into a life that is not what she expected. Fame comes with consequences. Now it is Julian that she sees when she reads her guilty pleasure tabloids. Will this new found fame ruin her marriage like so many other famous couples? (I am still not over Brad and Jen, fyi).
