Glamour~On The Runway
This review is for the fifth book in the 'On The Runway' series, "Glamour" by Melody Carlson.
Melody is a bestselling author as advertised on the front of the book and I can easily see why she is by reading her novels. I love the way this series takes you somewhat inside the fashion world but also has several other stories going on in the same book. You have so many diverse personalities and things happening that you never get bored. I find that I read these books within a day of picking them up. I love that because I'm eager to find out what happens but hate it cause they are ending so quickly!
I like the way that Melody continues to address what could be delicate subject matter with a practical point of view. For instance, Paige has her fiance stay for the week in their apartment and Erin is less than thrilled and lets her sister know it. While her sister views it as okay since they are engaged, Erin has a different set of standards by which she lives her life.
We saw Paige get engaged to Dylan Marceau, the clothing designer in the last book and this one continues with that story. Their engagement has shocked the fashion world and Ben, Paige's previous boyfriend, didn't take it so great either. One has to wonder, however, if Paige and Dylan are in it for the right reasons.
Meanwhile Erin is struggling on where she stands with Blake. Could you have broken up when you aren't really together in the first place? And why is he so standoffish?
I am a fan of the fact that Erin has so much going on for her. She isn't just stuck in boy mode. She has work, helping a friend through something awful, a pregnant best friend etc...
There is a good balance when you put Erin with Paige. Paige is more flighty and irrational and Erin just has a good head on her shoulders. Don't get me wrong I can see where she stumbles and loses herself sometimes but she always picks herself back up and keeps right on going.
I am really looking forward to reading the final book in this series and sharing my opinions with you guys!
Hope your weekend is amazing!
