Book Review: Where's Karl? by Stacey Caldwell

Where's Karl?: A Fashion-Forward ParodyWhere's Karl?: A Fashion-Forward Parody by Stacey Caldwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There are a few things I like more than reading a basic book.

One is a book that engages you past your initial reading. Something that will keep you coming back time again either to reread or to find something new.  This book promises to keep you entertained through multiple 'readings'. I sat down and read the book and managed to find Karl at each stop on the journey. There is a list in the back of the book of other things to find and I only glanced at it and tried to find a few. I will be going back because - Nina Garcia fighting a pirate - eluded me and now I must find that scene!

The second thing I like more than reading a basic book is fashion. I, personally, may not have the best fashion sense, but I have my own style. I love watching fashion shows and red carpets to see what everyone is wearing. I also love to see pictures from the fashion weeks and the outlandish things they send down the runways.  This book was a little bit of all of that, each stop showed fashion and the characters that make fashion great.

If these two things appeal to you then I highly suggest checking out this book.  Also if you spot Nina let me know!

I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
