Author: Sophie Kinsella
My Short Review: Quick to read, very well written, very very entertaining!
My rating: 4 Stars( The highest I would give for a chick-lit book)
I read the Shopaholic Series a couple of years ago. It all started when I was browsing the library shelves and "The Undomestic Goddess" caught my eye. I loved the book. You can find my review here . I immediately googled Sophie Kinsella and realized that she'd written this whole series of Shopaholic books. I picked up "confessions of a shopaholic" and I was instantly addicted. My very brief review of the series can be found here .
It has been a while since I read the Kinsella books and I had "remember me" on my wishlist for a long time. I was browsing in the library yesterday and suddenly the bright yellow cover caught my eye. I immediately picked it up and as predicted, couldn't put it down!
Lexi Smart is out with her friends one night and it has not been a great day - she didnt get the much required bonus at work, her boyfriend stood her up, it is her dad's funeral the next day and just when she thinks things couldn't get worse, she falls down a flight a stairs and everything goes blank. She wakes up in the hospital all set to get back to the sucky life she's been leading only to realize that it is no longer 2004. It is 2007 and she's in the hospital because she's had an accident in her convertible mercedes. She finds herself slimmer (by two whole dress sizes), her dracula-teeth have been fixed, her bitten nails are manicured.. and in short, she's totally different.
Lexi is diagnosed with partial amnesia.. and she can't remember anything that happened after that fall in 2004. But one thing is for certain.. her life has completely transformed in the 3 years. She looks like a bombshell, drives a convertible mercedes, has a millionaire husband, and has also somehow becomes the boss of the department she used to works in!
Sophie Kinsella's writing is as addictive as ever in this book. It is a very light read and keeps you glued from the first page till the last. If you enjoy light reads I would totally recommend Kinsella's books to you..and this one for sure! If you've already read this one, I'd love to hear your comments!
