Book Club Friday

If you know me, you know I have a bad habit of reading more than one book at a time (I may or may not be currently reading about four books). BUT, I did start and finish the following book this past week. 

When 28-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she is in for a big surprise. Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident- in a Mercedes no less- Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she's about to find out just how much things have changed. Somehow Lexi went from a 25-year-old working girl to a corporate big shot with a sleek new loft, a personal assistant, a carb-free diet, and a set of glamorous new friends. And who is this gorgeous husband-who also happens to be a multimillionaire? With her mind stuck three years in reverse, Lexi greets this brave new world determined to be the person she...well, seems to be. That is, until an adorable disheveled architect drops the biggest bombshell of all. Suddenly Lexi is scrambling to catch her balance. Her new life, it turns out, comes complete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue. How on earth did all this happen? Will she ever remember? And what will happen when she does?

This was the first book by Sophie Kinsella that I've read and I LOVED it. I read a review on one of her other books (actually found it on a Book Club Friday blog hop), so when I saw this one at Half Price Books, I thought I'd give her a try. First of all- I like her writing style. It was very easy to read, I probably read about half of the book in one sitting. The author is from England, so there were some British terms I had to look up (like a quid- which is a slang term for their currency). But that wasn't a distraction (and I learned something new!)

I actually have another book by Sophie that I plan to read soon. If the writing is anything like this novel, I won't be disappointed.

Has anyone else ever read Sophie Kinsella? What do you think of her?

Happy weekend!!



  1. This sounds good! I've read some of the Shopaholic books, and they kind of annoyed me. Of course, that didn't keep me from reading two or three sequels... Lol.

  2. I've read Shopoholics and the Undomesticated Goddess with mixed reviews. This one sounds good though! Thanks, twin!

  3. This one sounds like a good one!

  4. Yeah, I always have more than one book going too! But have never heard of this author. Have a great weekend!

  5. I've loved all of Kinsella's books, although was one of my favorites. But still for me, nothing tops her shopaholic books.

  6. I just finished my first Sophie book, Can you Keep A Secret, and LOVED it! I cant wait to read more and just picked up this one as well!
