How to Be a Grown-Up by Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus

How to Be a Grown-Up: a novel is coauthored by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus and reads like the perfect mix of The Devil Wears Prada and Sex and the City. Definitely considered chick-lit, the novel gives the reader a glimpse into the reality of a woman having to reenter the workforce after sacrificing a successful career for home and family. To make matters worse, her new bosses are half her age and full of themselves, and have no experience beyond their sheltered, posh upbringing.

Madam President by Nicolle Wallace

Madam President by Nicolle Wallace is the perfect book for those who never miss an episode of the ever popular ABC television series Scandal. Filled with strong women characters, it follows Charlotte Kramer, the forty-fifth president of the United States, as she faces a day of five major terrorist attacks on the US. Mix in a little behind the scenes underhanded goings on, and you won't want to put this one down.
