The Vanity Fair Diaries is the story of an Englishwoman barely out of her 20s who arrives in New York City with a dream. Summoned from London in hopes that she can save Condé Nast's troubled new flagship Vanity Fair, Tina Brown is immediately plunged into the maelstrom of the competitive New York media world and the backstabbing rivalries at the court of the planet's slickest, most glamour-focused magazine company.

Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season. When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry.

What made the experience of listening to Crazy Rich Asians the most enjoyable?

The narrator is just amazing, she does so many accents, keeps up with the various characters and even sings at one point!

In this practical and liberating audiobook, Jessica Turner empowers women to take back pockets of time they already have in their day in order to practice self-care and do the things they love. Turner uses her own experiences and those of women across the country to teach listeners how to balance their many responsibilities while still taking time to invest in themselves.

What would have made The Fringe Hours better?

Less talk about God, it was constant and not what I expect from a self help book. Had to stop listening.

What character would you cut from The Fringe Hours?

God!
