With humour, savvy and grace, Techbitch is The Devil Wears Prada for the digital age

When Imogen Tate returns from a sabbatical to her post as editor-in-chief of Glossy magazine, she finds her former assistant Eve Morton sitting comfortably in her very own office. Fresh out of Harvard Business School, Eve plans to overhaul Glossy completely, with herself at the helm.

Imogen may have Calvin Klein and Diane Von Furstenberg on speed dial, but she can't tell a Tweet from an Instagram snap and isn't sure how an app differs from a website. Imogen's livelihood is in danger and if she wants to keep her job, she has to get on the tech bandwagon, fast.

This Summer's Best Books in Sun on Sunday

Techbitch is relatable to all women, it shows the depths of ferocity of which some women are willing to go in order to succeed, whilst teaching the lesson that playing nice and keeping cool also has its benefits and rewards. I loved the style of writing and felt that all the storylines progressed at the right pace and the outcomes were satisfying, I almost punched my fist in the air in style of Judd Nelson at the end of Breakfast Club when I finished the book. Humorous, touching and about as addictive as shoe shopping, Techbitch is one book that you should stick on your to read list

Belle About Town

This describes the frantic process of taking a Vogue-like magazine from paper to app. . . When Imogen left, she was Queen. When she comes back, she's lost her front-row Fashion week seat to a-What? What are these?-fashion bloggers! Naturally, Imogen regrows her claws. And the book does its share of meowing about the entitled young women who now flood the magazine offices, living large because they still live rent-free at their parents' apartments
