Review: "Everyone Worth Knowing" by Lauren Weisberger

From Goodreads:  Soon after Bette Robinson quits her horrendous Manhattan banking job like the impulsive girl she's never been, the novelty of walking her four-pound dog around the unglamorous Murray Hill neighborhood wears as thin as the "What are you going to do with your life?" phone calls from her parents. Then Bette meets Kelly, head of Manhattan's hottest PR firm, and suddenly she has a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and be seen inside the VIP rooms of the city's most exclusive nightclubs. But when Bette begins appearing in a vicious new gossip column, she realizes that the line between her personal life and her professional life is...invisible.

My Thoughts:  I received this book in a book exchange; it didn't seem like something I would like but I figured I should give it a chance.  It turned out be something I didn't like.  It moved slow, the characters were shallow and not super likable and it seemed about a hundred pages too long.  Bette started to get on my nerves after a while; she made a lot of dumb decisions and then couldn't seem to figure out why her life was a disaster and everyone was mad at her.  Sammy was about the only enjoyable character and even he was annoying at times.  The story was fairly predictable and overall it was just a silly, not very enjoyable book.  2 stars.
