A quick fun read was exactly what I needed after all of these WWII books. I really liked the main characters and their bonds. Nobody‘s life is ever perfect.
This was cute. Fluff but fun. If you need a nice easy fun read, this is it!
I was looking for a fun read and this totally fit the bill!
I picked it as my #socialmediafocus read for #booked2019 and as the title suggests it asks what ripple effects come from the image we project online, so it really got me thinking about my own accounts and how comfortable I actually am with transparency online vs in irl interactions.
I really enjoyed this book! Sophie Kinsella is always a good choice when I need something light and sweet after reading a few heavy books and this one did not disappoint!

2. Beach (although lately I prefer to be in the shade on the beach!)
3. Sitting around a bon fire. I don‘t get outside much in the Winter 😒
5. The main character helps her family run a glamping business
One more day until #fridaynightbookclub 😍
1. Suburban! ?
2. I'd die to live by the sea, and I love scubadiving... which is a great adventure every time!!! ??
3. I'm not a sporty person... at all! Does sunbathing count as "outdoor activity"?!☀️
4. Hoteling, but I'd like to try glamping at least once!
5. "My Not So Perfect Life" by Sophie Kinsella! It's such a fun read about well... living outdoor!
Delayed post from yesterday! Katie‘s dreams are not as profound as the famed #IHaveADream speech, but this Somerset girl does have a strong desire to build the perfect London life... thus light hearted book that follows is more than just Katie following her dream but also opening her heart and learning about herself. A fast-paced and fun listen, I thoroughly enjoyed this- and it‘s great for #AudioColoring #ANewChapter
My final total for #25inFive is 30 hours and 49 minutes, only managed 3 1/2 hours today. Finished 4 books during the 5 days. Thanks everyone who played along, it was a great experience and I loved everyone‘s contributions. Great to see so many people having fun, the most important aim! 🙌🙌🙌🙌😍😊👍
Only my second Sophie Kinsella book but it will most definitely not be my last. This was an excellent read and a good palette cleanser from many of the mystery and Suspense books I read. Loved the central character and the eventual feel good factor of the book, but there were many funny moments in the book that lead up to this point. Certainly recommend this book if you enjoy this style of books.
End of day 3 of the #25inFive Readathon. Read 8 hrs 5 mins today finishing two books : Lillian Boxfish Takes A Walk and the tagged book. Altogether now read 18 hrs 33 minutes and finished 3 books. Read part of these 4 books today.
Too tired to physically read, so started listening to this one.
Sophie Kinsella I adore you! You make me smile as I'm reading. In fact, if you haven't listened to a Sophie Kinsella audiobook, I highly recommend it, especially if narrated by Jayne Entwistle. Sorry, I digress... All is not what it appears and Kinsella will have you hooked until the last page. What a fun ride.
You know that voice in your head that narrates your life, with its incessant questions and observations? When I read a Sophie Kinsella, I feel I‘ve been given access to someone‘s internal voice, and it always has a British accent!
Katie Brenner is talented and witty, and wants the perfect Londoner life. All around her, others live in ways she can only dream of. She has to get back to her roots to find her own truths. Engaging and funny book!
Katie, a young women living London, tries to navigate the waters of balancing a dream job, parents who miss her, and a possible romantic relationship. When life throws a wrench in her plans, Katie returns home to the family business and begins to realize the toll that accompanies you if you pretend to have the perfect life, learning that the grass is never really greener on the other side- for we all pretend on social media.
Even though I was enjoying this I want pretty slow through the first half but flew through the second half in a day, as an intro to Sophie Kinsella it was a pretty solid start. I found it funny, relatable and even though this will make no sense, it gave me more Bridget Jones feels than actually reading Bridget Jones did🤷🏻♀️, it‘s one I could imagine being made into a similar sort of film at least that‘s how it played out in my head 👍5/5⭐️
Really unsure what to read next, picked out these four think I might read a chapter or so of each see if any stand out to me I hate when you can‘t tell what you‘re in the mood to read. 🤷🏻♀️
I listened to the audiobook for this one and the reader had a delightful accent and cadence. A fun story about a London girl named Katie and her struggle to live the perfect life in London. Office politics, family drama, and a little romance too. At times so funny I laughed out loud.
I rather liked this book. It was cheeky and Katie and her dad and Biddy make for a fine trio. I'm sure it helps that I have an affinity for books set in the UK. Anyway, this book was lighthearted and witty. There was a bit of a plot but nothing major. This book was more about Katie and her good friend Karma
First morning back at home after a week in hospital. So heavenly to have my own coffee in my own space again 😇
My sweet man put flowers everywhere & I‘m wrapping up this book that helped get me through those tough days, that and The Bookshop On The Corner by Jenny Colgan.
☀️Books really are good friends 💓
