Diamonds can be a girls best friend, and if you really decide to take it upon yourself to embrace such an attitude, I say go right ahead. I won't present you with directions to the nearest Tiffany's or Zales, but I will advise you to check out a book that will take you on an unbelievable ride. Bling from the author Erica Kennedy tells a fictitious story of the in's and outs of the music business. Take a look at what you should be looking for if you haven't already finished this page turner.

An easy read especially if you love music or well developed characters. My intention is not to spill too many details because that would take away from the fun, and I certainly would not want to spoil the revelation for you. I had never heard of Erica Kennedy or Bling for that matter until late September back in 2008 when I was doing some shopping at my local Thrift Store. Some beautiful person likely donated the book, and it ended up in my hands. What a treat for me. I started reading it on 09-19-08 and soon finished it on 09-27-08. Why the precise dates? Well sometimes I write the date I start a book inside its front cover, and then I write the date I finish it inside its back cover. That's how I get the dates down to a T. Like I said earlier, this book is a page turner. You won't be able to put it down. The characters come to life and the language is down to earth, entertaining, and sweet. As the characters go through real life ups and downs, trying to find their way in careers, relationships, and friendships, you will go along for the journey like a spectator on inquest. Through it all, the lessons are unavoidable for the characters. The reader also stands to take away a lesson or two on the business side of the music industry and how to make it in the famous lane.  One decision can make or break these characters and the comeback could be within reach or a far cry away from where they thought they would end up creatively or otherwise. This is what Russel Simmons had to say about Erica Kennedy's book, Bling.

"With her first novel, Erica Kennedy knocks it out of the park. Bling is a funny sexy, and engaging story that grabs hold and never lets go. All these characters feel like people I know. But, for the record, the mogul is not based on me!

Reading Bling with anticipation? You will not be able to help yourself.
