FULL VIDEO REVIEW COMING SOON The last few books I read were dark, one of them was particularly dark GR friend Larry suggested that perhaps I needed a palate cleanser , and, yup, that s what I needed and I found it in Sophie Kinsella s My Not So Perfect Life I used to read Kinsella s Shopaholic books, but then I got tired of the formula and the rom com literary genre generally But it sure felt nice to revisit Kinsella when looking for something lighter Katie is a young woman from the British countryside who tries to make it in the London advertising world But life sucks in London she has difficult flat mates, no money, and what seems like an impossible boss True to the genre, things unravel, things start turning around, and then things work out While somewhat predictable, Kinsella is good at the genre Katie is a great character a bit naive, but mostly smart, stro NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Part Love Story, Part Workplace Drama, This Sharply Observed Novel Is A Witty Critique Of The False Judgments We Make In A Social Media Obsessed World New York Times Bestselling Author Sophie Kinsella Has Written Her Most Timely Novel YetEverywhere Katie Brenner Looks, Someone Else Is Living The Life She Longs For, Particularly Her Boss, Demeter Farlowe Demeter Is Brilliant And Creative, Lives With Her Perfect Family In A Posh Townhouse, And Wears The Coolest Clothes Katie S Life, Meanwhile, Is A Daily Struggle From Her Dismal Rental To Her Oddball Flatmates To The Tense Office Politics She S Trying To Negotiate No Wonder Katie Takes Refuge In Not Quite True Instagram Posts, Especially As She S Desperate To Make Her Dad ProudThen, Just As She S Finding Her Feet Not To Mention A Possible New Romance The Worst Happens Demeter Fires Katie Shattered But Determined To Stay Positive, Katie Retreats To Her Family S Farm In Somerset To Help Them Set Up A Vacation Business London Has Never Seemed So Far Away Until Demeter Unexpectedly Turns Up As A Guest Secrets Are Spilled And Relationships Rejiggered, And As The Stakes For Katie S Future Get Higher, She Must Question Her Own Assumptions About What Makes For A Truly Meaningful LifeSophie Kinsella Is Celebrated For Her Vibrant, Relatable Characters And Her Great Storytelling Gifts Now She Returns With All Of The Wit, Warmth, And Wisdom That Are The Hallmarks Of Her Bestsellers To Spin This Fresh, Modern Story About Presenting The Perfect Life When The Reality Is Far From The Truth It s no wonder Sophie Kinsella s books are so widely acclaimed She speaks of real contemporary issues in ways usually with humour that make the reader want to listen to what she says.
She doesn t try to brainwash you She s not saying life is perfect, she s saying it s going to shit on you a good hundred times, and then maybe if you keep your head high you might just be fine probably.
Kinsella s heroines all have the same voice I do wonder if I m the only one who s picked up on that That doesn t mean they re unoriginal Kinsella s women are witty and smart in surprising ways, but they re all a little lost in life and charmingly innocent They re also true working women who have ups and downs and with whom an important part of you will be able to connect Katie is no exception She s a twenty six year old trying to make it in this hard world Sa My Not So Perfect Life is such a fun escape There s something about Sophie Kinsella s books that not only draw me in, but also make me laugh and smile Her characters are usually flawed but likable, and the main character in this book, Katie Brenner, follows suit Katie Cat Brenner is living her dream life It s not perfect, but she is willing to overlook her hour and half painful commute to work, her crazy boss, her tiny room in a shared flat, and her lack of a social life because she gets to live in London She is envious of her friends and her boss, who use social media to portray that they live the perfect lives Katie uses Instagram to make it seem as she is living a muchglamorous life than she is living She believes so much in what others portray, that she doesn t realize that what s posted online isn Working in the behavioral health field, I see how people present themselves while in the waiting room and then I see the real deal once in my office The difference can be as extreme as night and day Lesson Everything ain t always as it seems It s just as easy to pass flattering judgments on people as it is to pass those of thedisgruntled sort People who seem like they have the best life ever rarely do behind closed doors Let s face it, no one has a perfect anything My Not So Perfect Life is a prime example of this train of thought It was light, funny, heartfelt, unfair, revengeful, a little bit mysterious, redemptive, and real This book was a joy to read via audio and I would highly recommend it if you re a fan of chick lit Kinsella groupie or not, check it out My favorite quoteI think I ve finally wo So I am in a serious debate now.
I can t decide if this is my new all time favorite book by Sophie Kinsella or if Twenties Girl is still my number oneOhh, this is so hard, it shouldn t be this hard Anyway, this book is perfect The end was a bit cheezy but not too cheezy, but still cheezy enough to spice everything up with flavour of loveOkay, now I m really rambling I won t bother you any, but just before I write my proper review I ll just tell you that YOU NEED THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIFE While reading I m so happy I m reading this right now
It s Monday morning.
You wake up early, determined to get to work on time.
You leave behind your crappy apartment and your crazy roommates.
You run to catch the bus, but your high heels are killing you, so you miss the bus and you re forced to reach the metro station on foot, while the bypassing cars keep splashing you and your only trench coat with mud.
Your feet are sore and your hair resembles a bird nest when you finally get in the train It is so crowded, though, that you end up accidentally eating the breakfast of the incredulous woman next to you.
In the end you get to work, and commence your boring tasks while you day dream that one day they ll recognize your talent and promote you.
And then she arrives D Kinsella is my go to for fun, feel good reads that demand very little of me After all these years, since the very first shopaholic book, I know exactly what I m going to get from her and I m totally good with that Unfortunately, though, a huge chunk of My Not So Perfect Life bored the pants off me.
The author s books may be shallow and silly, but I have also always found them charming, funny and charismatic I couldn t help liking Becky Bloomwood I especially liked Audrey and her family from 2015 s Finding Audrey But I felt zero spark from Katie Brenner Or this book s love interest Or the story.
Others have noted the similarities between this and The Devil Wears Prada, and that is especially true of the book s opening I would say it is practically identical Ka
