      I wanted to like this, but just couldn't get past the amateurish writing. I enjoy the escape of chic-lit and realize I'm not reading a Pulitzer Prize winning novel. That said, this read like the diary of a 13 year old imagining what it would be like to grow up and have a job with a big, bad boss. There was no development of anything, story or characters, and many of the scenes and descriptors were painfully awkward to read. It gave the impression of the first story written for a creative writing [...]

      I don't understand the glowing reviews. This is poorly written, with a messy story that includes repeated and/or out of place lines and ridiculous conflict ("she wants her coffee Beyonce colored? Is my boss racist?" then later, "by the way, thanks for the coffee but I said Beyonce and this is Halle Berry.") and terrible, borderline hurtjful and ignorant descriptions (a size 8 is written as curvy and in need of watching for back fat). I actually cannot think of a single good thing to say about th [...]

      Right, so I felt mentally violated by page 10, and had to stop half a chapter later because I was seriously contemplating whether to throw myself or my computer out of the window.

      What Pretty Girls Are Made Of is reminiscent of The Devil Wears Prada. Alison is an out of work actress always looking for a gig. She finds a job as an admin assistant to Sally Steele, owner of Sally Steele Cosmetics. In short, the woman is a b!tch from hell and made me want to slap her. Often. Almost every woman I’ve ever known has worked with a “mean girl” at work, but the premise for this book is that the mean girl is the owner and belittles everyone below her. Alison is determined to m [...]

      This is "Devil Wears Prada" for the cosmetics industry, but taken to the next level: it's substantive. The thing I loved most about "WPGAMO" is that it's more than a fun beach read. The smart protagonist serves up a road map for young women in navigating their early professional lives. You learn not only that the makeup world can be just as catty as the fashion world, but also how to deal with that and come out on top. Great reading for anybody beginning her career, with practical examples of wh [...]

      4.5 StarsYou know those rainy Sundays that make you want to stay in bed, in your pajamas all day and read a good book? Well today was one of those days and I just really needed a good chick lit book to brighten up my dreary day. I decided to read What Pretty Girls are Made Of by Lindsey Jill Roth. Touted as a book that if you like the Devil wears Prada you will enjoy this read, I decided to give it a chance and let me tell you 6 hours later I am still in bed, still in my pajamas with a huge smil [...]

      What Pretty Girls Are Made Of was my first foray into chick lit. And I loved it. The book grabbed me right from the start and didn't let go. Alison Kraft is a gutsy, dynamic young woman who learns -- often, the hard way -- what it's like to work for a boss who is an absolute nightmare. Alison perseveres, and we are able to watch her cope with work-related trials and tribulations that would crush many other women. Lindsay Roth also takes us into Alison's personal life, and the reader is completel [...]

      loved this bookminded me so much of my boss it's not even funny!!!

    9. ChrisCarroll on said:

      I love a great chick lit book that tackles the in and out day in the life of a working girl. This book is a perfect example. The life and times of Alison, with actor turned executive assistant for a crazy, whacked out boss, is a humorous look at some of the things people have to put up with at work. This is a lighthearted read with plenty of reason to not work for anyone at all! Who knew the beauty industry could be that way? But it is not only about work. Also included is some love interest, fa [...]

      I really enjoyed this book! And the blurbs are right, it's like working for The Devil Wears Prada. Although I'm pretty sure this boss was much harder to work for. You never really knew which one of her moods would show up or when. I would not have been able to work for that woman, she is cray, cray!!I really enjoyed the story though. I thought it was very well written and I liked most of the characters. And even though Allison was single and looking for a guy, every moment of everyday was not fo [...]

      Could not put this book down! Alison was so relatable, and reminded me of myself. The author articulately addresses what it's like to grow up as a modern women, in a warm way that leaves you laughing until tears. This is the perfect book for my two daughters and their friends. I could totally relate to the situations and stories. I recommended this book to all my friends, because I know they'll all love it. --Highly recommended, can't wait for the next book!!--Great summer read--Looking forward [...]

      I was really excited to read this after hearing about it in The Skimm. The Devil Wears Prada comparison was what excited me the most, as I still watch that movie with embarrassing frequency and have reread the book several times. That said, I found the writing in this book wanting. It was full of wobbly transitions and inadequate descriptions. The author did however do a great job of making you hate Sally Steele and putting you right in Alison's shoes. Definitely a good "beach read", but could h [...]

      For a guy that likes science fiction, I was surprised at how much this book affected me. There was a ton of adventure that kept me reading and made me feel good with every page. Obviously the author/publisher put enormous effort into making every page a pleasure to read. It was a quick read, but I can honestly say it helped me think about a lot of stuff in my life on a deeper level. Thanks for the great work!

    15. Carrie on said:

      When I was in full-throttle holiday stress season, this was a great book to read. Gossipy, fun, not too heavy like all the reviews say, it's just like The Devil Wears Prada in the makeup industry. (Is Sally Steele suppposed to be Bobbi Brown? I looked everywhere I could on the internet but never found where Lindsay Jill Roth worked in the cosmetics industry. Have to assume that is on purpose.) Easy fun read.

    16. Jenn Ballmann on said:

      I was sent a copy of the book for review through Net Galley, as always, all opinions are my own.Chick-lit normally isn’t my thing, but I did enjoy this book. Alison Kraft is a girl with guts and determination and it was fun watching her grow as a person. Granted, there were times I wanted to hit her upside the head and ask her why she was putting up which such a nut for a boss, but in the end her determination to stick with such a lousy job paid off.

    17. Rachel on said:

      I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book and I'm just sad I finished it so quickly! It is such a fun read - I loved the peak behind the scenes of the makeup world. I was completely on the ride with the main character. VERY relatable for anyone who is struggling/struggled to find themselves in their twenties and certainly for anyone who's ever dealt with a crazy boss. I strongly recommend this book. Perfect summer read!

    18. Marci Weisler on said:

      I had the good fortune to get an advanced copy of What Pretty Girls Are Made Of and LOVED IT! What a fun and funny read. Perfect for summer! Loved the insider beauty biz dirt and wanted to be friends with Alison and saw both reality and absurdity in her situation. Really showed beauty inside and out. Wish I had it to read again at the beach this weekend!

    19. CR on said:

      I loved this book! It's perfect for enjoyable summer reading and is an entertaining portrayal of the cosmetics industry (I had no idea what went on behind the scenes!) and the struggles to figure out ones place in life and love. Highly recommend to anyone who likes a fun and poignant read.

    20. Lindsay B on said:

      I read this book in 3 evenings. The main character is easy to relate to and the book is a lot of fun. It's a perfect beach read. Gotta love the shout out to Point O Pines camp too! Congratulations Lindsay!

      Refreshing read in the new year! Devil wears Prada only this book is about a make up company in NYC. Upbeat writing! I enjoyed it!

      Well it wasn't so bad that I couldn't finish it. But so poorly written that I am a bit mad at myself for investing the time.

    24. Leslie on said:

      I received this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.I love good chick lit and this is one of the best. must read for everyone.

      Better than I expected. It started out cute, if not a little shaky, but it got better as it went on and by the last half, I was enjoying it a lot more.
