First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #23 and Tuesday Teaser

First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. It's an opportunity to share the first paragraphs of a book I am currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

This week I'm featuring the opening paragraph from Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger, which I borrowed from the library.

Read on after the intro for my Tuesday Teaser.

 Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Publication Date: June 4, 2013
Chapter 1
 as long as she lived
The rain fell in sideways sheets, cold and relentless, the winds whipping it in every direction, making an umbrella, slicker, and rain boots nearly useless.  Not that Andy had any of those things.  Her two-hundred-dollar Burberry umbrella had refused to open and finally snapped when she tried to force it; the cropped rabbit jacket with the oversize collar and no hood cinched fabulously around her waist but did nothing to stop the bone-chilling cold; and the brand-new stacked suede Prada pumps cheered her with their poppy fuchsia color but left the better part of her foot exposed.  Even her skinny leggings left her legs feeling naked, the wind making the leather feel as protective as a pair of silk stockings.  Already the fifteen inches that had blanketed New York were beginning to melt into a slushy gray mess, and Andy wished for the thousandth time that she lived anywhere but here.
What do you think?  Would you continue reading?  For me, this book is one of those guilty pleasures that continues the enjoyment from the first book, The Devil Wears Prada and the movie.
Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, is a weekly event where bloggers open to a random page and share a teaser from somewhere on that page--no spoilers allowed.
Here's my teaser from Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger:
"Nevermind that Max was riding a white horse in midtown Manhattan in the middle of a blizzard--Andy was so ecstatic to see him, she didn't even think to question it." ~p. 4
