A long marriage is still a desire of my heart. It‘s not a life sentence unless you are Sophie and Dan! Healthy middle class couple with a possible 68 years of marital what!!?? The idea makes them panic. The audio is enjoyable. #2021readingchallenge

Book 48 I listened to the majority of this book in one go as I was cleaning out my classroom for the year. The story vacillates between almost-romantic comedy and almost-thriller; not doing either well. It was okay for a listen, but not well-written.

This was not my favorite Kinsella, but I did enjoy it. There were several parts where I laughed out loud, and thanks to #bookspin, I finally got it read and off my #TBR!

TheAromaofBooks I've had mixed results with Kinsella, but this one does sound like a fun premise. 3y
Cpg This is my first of hers to read- what others do you recommend? TIA 1y
OriginalCyn620 @Cpg My favorites of hers are Confessions of a Shopaholic, Can You Keep a Secret, and Undomestic Goddess. All are pretty cute and funny! 1y

Another fun, witty read from Sophie Kinsella. I liked the characters in this one, found the twins quite amusing. Story was abit of a cliche but I sort of expect that with chit lit. I am enjoying reading her books inbetween my usual genre 😊
Book 1 of 20 for #bfcr4

Princess Sylvie emerges from her childlike self to a strong feminist woman in this laugh-out-loud book. What is shown as a perfect marriage quickly unravels in the midst of too many secrets and not enough communication. Some dark family secrets emerge which paints things in an entirely different light but allow for healing and a rebonding ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #mbcreadathon #mbcfrogsread11

With life expectancy increasing, the idea of being married to someone FOREVER can seem.... Daunting.... So Sylvie and Dan start coming up with surprises for each other to keep things interesting. The biggest surprise though, is something that has been affecting their marriage from almost the very beginning.... Not what I was expecting, but a very pleasing, light read. But once you know the twist, I don't think you could enjoy a re-read as much...

I feel like all of Sophie Kinsella's female characters are the same, and each book is just a different point in their life or like an alternate reality. In to it though.

Though I usually have a lot of fun with Kinsella‘s books, this one just wasn‘t one of my favorites of hers... the premise just kind of kicked off strangely to me with a husband & wife being horrified to learn they have 68 more years of married life ahead of them... so they start surprising each other to spice up their marriage with some predictably disastrous results. There are a few funny moments but it just wasn‘t my favorite for #AudioColoring

I thought “Surprise Me” was going to be the fun popcorn read I was craving. I thought it was going to be about a husband and wife trying to put some spark in their marriage and hijinks ensuing. Although the book started that way, it morphed into a boring melodrama (is her husband cheating??? What‘s his secret????) that was infuriatingly predictable.

Oh, there are gonna be spoilers.

First, it starts off as one book and ends up as another. Very annoying. You think it‘s going to be a light-hearted romp with a husband and wife trying to put a spark in their marriage.

Hijinks half heartedly ensue. Our plucky heroine is thrown into many embarrassing situations, very few of which are funny. Of course things get out of hand what follows are several chapters where wife thinks husband is cheating.

LazyLimaLife Cont‘d: Rather than confront the situation we are treated to several far reaching jumps to conclusions. By this time the reader knows exactly what‘s coming. Of course the husband isn‘t having an affair! He‘s nobly trying to protect his wife from finding out her beloved late father is a selfish cad. Finally, armed with the truth, the wife pulls herself together and is filled with both moxie and gumption enough to become a career success. Please. 4y
Hooked_on_books Ugh, that sounds dreadful! Thanks for reading this one so that I don‘t have to. 😉 4y
LazyLimaLife @Hooked__on__books I read other reviews and most people enjoyed it. I usually do like Sophie Kinsella but this on eluded me. It is, however, the perfect audiobook if you have trouble sleeping...🤷🏾‍♀️ 4y

"If love is easy, you're not doing it right."
"Love is finding one person infinitely fascinating."
"I am a person, and I want to commit to another person."
"Nothing changes if nothing changes."

Sylvie and Dan have a happy marriage and believe they know everything there is to know about each other. Until it's mentioned to them that they could be together another sixty-eight years... and panic sets in.

I fully admit to loving me some Sophie Kinsella! I always know I‘m going to laugh a lot and end up loving her characters. What I didn‘t think of before this novel was how much more I could appreciate her stories with an excellent audiobook narrator. Surprise Me ended up....well surprising me! This one had everything I typically love while also being touching and multi-layered. Now I want to go back and listen to her other novels! 🌟🌟🌟🌟 1/2

I still think we need something between "Pick" and "So-So" but I'll be generous with "Pick". It's wasn't great but it was interesting and entertaining. It definitely picked up the last half. I saw a few reviews around where readers gave up on it. So, my advice is stick it out if we might give up, it does get better.

Boooooks You‘re definitely right on the need for an option between pick and so-so, it makes me inclined towards pick even if I thought it was okay because otherwise it seems as though I disliked it when that‘s not always the case. 4y

#currentlyreading Most of the reviews of this book seem rather "Eh" but I'm giving it a shot. I picked it up for literally a quarter at a thift store. I have other books on the shelf I'm more excited to read but if I put this one off any longer I'll probably never read it. So, giving it a shot.

#BookHaul Went thift store shopping today and snagged this pile for about $8. There are a couple for my daughter and one I've read but don't own (Angela's Ashes). The tagged book was only 25 cents and I remembered thinking it sounded good so I got it. Same for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? It was a quarter so I got it.

bookandcat Great haul! And how did you snag Westaway for that cheap? It just came out!! 4y
wanderinglynn I love thrift stores! Great haul! 👍🏻❤️ 4y
kristincatastrophic @bookandcat I know! It took all my self control not to jump up and down. They had The Woman In Cabin 10 right next to it. So, somebody probably very recently cleaned up their collection. 4y

Honestly I have been a bit disappointed. It took me a bit to get into the story and I much prefer when she writes about single girls with a bit of bad luck..
