‘Bitter Is The New Black’ by Jen Lancaster..A Book Review

Okay, This is my opinion on this book. If you are the actual Author or know her, I am in no way trying to offend. I am only a small fish in a large pond with her own views, after reading.

That being said;

“Bitter Is The New Black” is supposed to be a Memoir. Supposedly, it is fact and fiction mixed regarding the Author and how she began her writing career.

However,

If you have ever read any of the books in the , Confessions Of A Shopaholic’ by Sophia Kinsella, you will know it is about a girl with a shopping problem who receives letters from creditors and her creative ways of dealing with them. The situations she gets in are quite amusing.

‘Bitter Is The New Black’ and Jen’s situations are not quite as amusing as they are pretty much copied from the Confessions series with the exception of using email instead of actual letter writing. The topics and situations are a tad different, but the writing style is almost exact, taking the humor away and making one wonder

Does Jen know Sophia Kinsella and did she get permission to write this way?

I may not have written a book series (but have written a book on a self-publishing site) but, I know what plagiarism is and also a fine line, when I read it.

I prefer books written written by oneself in their own style
