Don't hate me because I'm beautiful...
Call me V. I used to be a nobody, just a girl from New Jersey who was probably going to hell anyway -- or worse, mediocrity and a size 14. Now I get whatever I desire just by casting a little spell....a flawless body, a luxury penthouse, and a Fifth Avenue shop where rich women clamor for my overpriced handbags. Even better, I have p

Bought on a whim at a thrift shop, this book was pointedly funny at times but then grew a bit sactimonious. Still a good recommendation for a light read, and a great barbed description of New York and vapid conniving people--with and without a soul.

Eh, not so much. It had great potential, but I just couldn't make myself enjoy it. I literally made myself finish it, then kicked myself for wasting such time. Bleh.

The premise...girl sells her soul to the devil...could have been funny. The actual book...crap.

Not funny, not interesting, not much of anything.

This sounded like a cute story, and I'm sure it is, but I'm just not into reading about shallow women so I never finished it.

Even for chick lit, this book just didn't do it for me.

When I first met Kathleen O’Reilly at an industry luncheon, she was delicately picking her way through a portobello mushroom the size of a Frisbee.


I’d always been a fan of her romance novels (eight Harlequins) but was intrigued to learn that she had just written a fabulous breakout novel for Pocket. When she told me the premise, it was so fresh and unusual, I immediately rushed out to buy it.
The title says it all: THE DIVA’S GUIDE TO SELLING YOUR SOUL.

Okay, I know you’re dying to hear the

The book is a little schizophrenic. Part hot, cool girl in the city and part moral lecture.

V sold her soul to the devil to escape Jersey and a cheating ex-husband. Now is is the hot handbag vendor of fifth avenue; her name on every woman's lips. But she's finding being evil isn't what she wanted and some how people keep asking her for favors. When she chases a dog that stole her scarf she inadvertently becomes the hero that saves a girl from drowning and meets a hot normal guy.

There are more une

Like seriously, I couldn't understand this entirely. Really,You walked into selling your soul but then you talk as if you were forced to the whole thing,purposely disobeying the rules,not even bringing in more souls as supposed.....and then you whine a lot wanting to be in Level 4, wanting your tight thighs, and to read people's mind....well i guess I won't know if that is really gonna happen cause am not going to actually be there(finishing the book)to know whether the hell u did after ...more

At first, I wondered a bit why I kept reading. Lucy's big gossip columns didn't quite make a difference and the narrator felt very self-absorbed. That was on purpose, however, and through the book the narrator changed in a way she didn't expect. Of course, not many people sell their soul to the devil and then stomp on her metaphorical tail.

I liked the end, partly because it appealed to the romantic in me (however hidden) and that it made sense in the universe of the book. It did stretch my imag

Audrey and Chrisana are calling me Lucy...I cannot wait to see what lable they have pinned on me in this book...I guess it will be a bit of a mirror to my face! or... I quote "And when she find out, there will be hell to pay..." You here that Audrey????????

Okay, finished the book...wow, the language was intense and I had to wade through the NYC references, but the plot to overthrow the devil was a good one. I like the ending. Audrey and Shauna can live without the 'hell to pay' ;-)

Spawned from that Sex-In-the-City genre. Also reminds me of the movie, "The Devil Wears Prada."

Decently entertaining. The main character was quite likeable.

The sex scenes are good - hot and realistic.

The jokes were so current, that they will probably be outmoded in a year or so – i.e. Paris Hilton, the “priceless” Mastercard commercial motif.

A very fun book with a twist on the chic-lit genre. I particularly liked the concept of the different level of rewards you get for the more souls you sign up! But the characters weren't that great and the ending kind of threw me off.

It's magical realism meets chic lit. Started off okay, got a little confusing, ended suddenly in a neat, cheesy (and kind of juvenile) little predictable package as if the author had used up her allotted number of pages. Disappointing/boring ending.

I had no clue what this book was about prior to reading it, so it took a while to figure out what was happening. It was a fun, quirky read.

No, tak kdybych byla o něco starší a řešila svůj nedokonalý život plný strachu z gramu navíc a toho, že si nemůžu koupit značkovou kabelku, možná by se mi to líbilo. Tohle ale fakt není můj styl.

Reading this book was pretty much a waste of time. Interesting premise but it just didn't live up to my expectations.
