Book review: Younger, Thinner, Blonder by Sue Watson
Tanya Travis seems to have everything. She is a Daytime TV Show star, has a gorgeous boyfriend and a designer’s kitchen. But being over 40 in show business is not easy. The TV set decides to replace her for a younger host, her boyfriend, music-star-to-be, is accused of being a father of young starlet’s unborn baby, and she loses her house. Her last chance is winning the reality show Celebrity Spa Trek where former stars are climbing the mountains in Nepal. So, how can someone like her survive in Nepal’s wild?
OMG! Tanya Travis is my new favorite character. She is so funny and always gets herself in so many ridiculous situations. Poor Tanya, always misunderstood by the paparazzi, she made me laugh out loud. One moment she has everything, a gorgeous house with a cook from Sweden, her own TV Show, a boyfriend that she loves, designer’s clothes. But do all these things really matter? So, when she loses everything, she grabs the very last chance to come back. Celebrity Spa Trek is not what she wants in life, but seems she has no choice. But, deep in the jungles of Nepal, high in the mountains, she starts to change herself. She realizes there’s more to life than designer’s shoes and dresses.
Another character that I loved is Astrid, Tanya’s cook. She has a really dirty mouth, but that’s because she learns English from the movies. Astrid is that BFF that you always need. So funny, so hilarious, so naive. I adored her.
Nathan is Tanya’s boyfriend. The tabloids say that he is just a boy-toy, that he is with her just for her money and fame.
So, reality TV fans, tabloid fans, good book fans, get ready. Climb the mountains of Nepal with Tanya Travis and don’t worry about cellulite. Having wrinkles is not the biggest problem in the world. Hope you’ll enjoy this hilarious book as much as I did.
My rating: 4.5/5
