I notice that I trend towards books that take place in modern-day "happening" cities, where the characters are largely upper middle class/filthy rich, and the main protagonist(s) is/are in their twenties.

Some examples:

1. Free Food For Millionaires by Min Jin Lee

2. Everyone Worth Knowing and The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

3. The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

4. Super Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan (newer)

Does anyone have any books that have the same sort of setting that they'd recommend for myself (and others that also like this 'environment')?


Bret Easton Ellis' bread and butter is hip, rich twenty-somethings with too much free time. He wrote Less Than Zero and Rules Of Attraction, as well as American Psycho. Right up your alley if you felt at all cynical while reading The Devil Wears Prada.
