Undomestic Goddess
Undomestic Goddess | Sophie Kinsella
Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. She s made a mistake so huge, it ll wreck any chance of a partnership. Going into utter meltdown, she walks out of her London office, gets on a train, and ends up in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she s mistaken for an interviewee and finds herself being offered a job as housekeeper. Her employers have no idea they ve hired a lawyer and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven. She can t sew on a button, bake a potato, or get the #@%# ironing board to open. How she takes a deep breath and begins to cope and finds love is a story as delicious as the bread she learns to bake. But will her old life ever catch up with her? And if it does will she want it back?"

Started and got lost in the book do far this evening. A quarter of a way through it already. It's light hearted and funny and a refreshing change from the graphic books I've read recently ❤ Samantha is the complete opposite to me 😂

The best kind of Chick Lit there is- a hilarious story with a bunch of awkward moments as well as sexual tension.

It's #Hour18 on the #24in48 #readathon.

#romancelovechallenge

The first English language romance I read was Outlander. A friend had talked me into it. That was 20+ years ago. I used to read a lot of crime/thriller/murder mystery, but have gradually shifted towards romance and historical romance over those two decades.

Nowadays I seem to read more romance than any other genre. Guess I like to see/read other people falling in love.

@24in48

BooknerdsLife I seem to be reading more Romance these days too😁 I found them very relaxing 😌💖 4mo
CarolynM I'm another one who is enjoying romance more as I get older. These days I like to feel confident of a happy ending. (edited) 4mo

A cute book. Nothing heavy and nothing serious. I wasn‘t crazy about the ending- it was a bit too unrealistic and self centered. But a good listen while I worked in my first paint by number.

At 24.5 miles this week, I met my #BFC fitness goal of walking/running a combined minimum of 20 miles each week. Bitsy walked/ran all of these miles with me. ❤️

I‘m killing my sleep goal! 😂

I listened to the tagged audiobook while walking.

The Fool

I took a picture of the German edition of the tagged book, I gave away the English edition some years ago.

The MC of this Kinsella rom-com is a perfect example of the fool. She runs away from her life as a lawyer, starting work as a housekeeper without knowing anything about housekeeping. But she's a fast learner. She also meets the right guy for a passionate new start.

julesG BTW that's the sunrise in Germany at 6.30am. 13mo

Unfortunately, I disliked this book. I‘ve read a few other Kinsella books and enjoyed them. This one had its moments and made me laugh. But I thought the premise was highly unbelievable and the ending was myopic. Not for me.

As usual with Kinsella, I had a hard time putting this one down. I found it amusing and perfectly entertaining but also a bit tedious. I wish it hadn‘t dragged on quite so long.

I love all of Sophie Kinsella's books, but this might be my favorite.
The first scene introducing the main character is the funny description of the main character texting while getting a massage. She is a total overachiever who gets fired and through a series of misunderstandings gets hired as someone's housekeeper. Has one of the hottest, sex scenes without being gratuitously graphic. Great ending too.

Comic Relief for the Soul (And the ebooks are on sale atm! $1.99 down from $11.99).

It‘s not sci-fi or fantasy, but there‘s a method to the madness. We‘ve all gone through reading slumps. When it happens to me, I take it as a sign that I need something different. Maybe I don‘t need another tense, harrowing plot. Maybe I need some old-fashioned comedy relief.

I caved with the Book Riot deals on Kindle today, then proceeded to download other Kindle Daily Deals. I had previously purchased Circe, but the other “new” titles are today‘s impulse buys.

For someone who doesn‘t really like eBook reading, I‘ve been buying a lot of eBooks lately. And NetGalley stalking. Perhaps #BlameItOnLitsy ?

I don't normally have insomnia. Just one more chapter "causes" insomnia.

My guilty pleasure for such #InsomniaReads is romance, I want to find out whether they get their HEA, more than I would want to find out who'd done it, in a murder mystery.

This book gave me a few laughs overall, and I felt the protagonist was well defined, but there were some inconsistencies that went beyond the silly and became frustrating and contradicting. I also felt the ending was a HUGE cliche, and very abrupt.
