    3.5 STARSDo you have a go to author for particular moods? Kinsella has been on my list of auto approved authors for dependable reads; she is the mashed potato of books in the sense that her stories always bring me comfort and a smile to my face. They aren’t anything ground breaking; typically these are your run of the mill chick lit that is predictable, but that is exactly why I pick them up, for their reliability. This particular read was a li...

    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 Bloomwoo...

    I read some Sophie Kinsella books back in the day and liked them so I thought I would get this one and give it a try. I was worried because the summary didn't sound like my cup of tea, but Lord, I'm glad I got it all because of Sophie Kinsella. I freaking loved it! Katie lives in London and she works at a job where she is trying to get noticed by her boss Demeter. Katie is hoping she will see her potential and give her a real job. Poor ole Katie ...

    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 v...

    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 w...

    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 the more disgruntled sort. People who seem like they have the best life ever rarely do behind closed doors. Let's face it...

    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 sh...

    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 one...Ohh, 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 love...Okay, now I'm really rambling!I won't bother you anymore, but just before I write my p...

    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 s...

    Oh Sophie Kinsella DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!I HIGHLY RECOMMEND listening to this book! The audiobook & narrator were fantastic!I loved how this was slightly different from other Kinsella books. It focused more on our main character, Katie & her coming to terms with her career and how people perceive her.FULL VIDEO REVIEW COMING SOON!
