Review round-up: Sophie Kinsella

twenties-girlRound-up of reviews of Sophie Kinsella’s brilliantly funny books, including Twenties Girl, Remember Me?, Can You Keep a Secret? and The Undomestic Goddess.

I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed several Sophie Kinsella books but for some reason I’ve never reviewed them. They’re not my usual YA, and I usually read them as a light-hearted break from some of the gritty, hard-hitting stories I often read.

I just finished reading Twenties Girl, but other Sophie Kinsella novels I’ve read are: Remember Me, The Undomestic Goddess and Can You Keep a Secret. I loved every one of them, and went on to lend my copies to friends and family. If you’re looking for an ideal holiday read, you can’t go far wrong with a Kinsella. Here’s a mini review of each of the four of Sophie’s books I’ve read.

I’ll start with my most recent read, Twenties Girl. I wasn’t sure whether I’d get on with this concept, as it involves the ghost of a relative, but Sophie Kinsella’s books aren’t meant to be taken seriously, so I just kept that in mind and delved in. I love the characters in Twenties Girl, particularly Sadie, the ghost of Lara’s 105-year-old great aunt. What’s interesting about her is that her ghost represents her younger self, a flamboyant, lively and fun-loving girl who grew up in the 1920s.

Remember Me?

I really enjoyed the story of Remember Me?, which stars Lexi Smart, a woman in her twenties who wakes up to discover that she’s lost three years worth of memories. As Lexi begins to get to know the person she’s become during those three years she’s unable to remember, she can’t help but feel as though she doesn’t actually like herself at all.

Despite being light-hearted and hilariously funny, Remember Me? is actually also rather thought-provoking, demonstrating just how much difference three years can make. It reminded me to stay true to myself in life, and to make sure I never become someone I don’t want to be.

The Undomestic Goddess

Another brilliantly funny Sophie Kinsella is The Undomestic Goddess, which had me hooked from the get-go but also made my stomach somersault on multiple occasions when Samantha managed to get herself into even more sticky situations thanks to her insane web of little white lies.

It’s another thought-provoker, actually, touching on the question of whether it’s right to have a ‘live to work’ lifestyle. It’s about finding true happiness without considering what’s expected of you – simply following your own heart instead.

What stuff do you like?

If you like quirky mysteries I would suggest anything by Janet Evanovich. You can read her stuff in any order technically, but it is better to read them in order (there are numbers in the titles, so start at One For The Money and continue through her newest one - Ten Big Ones). She also has some romance elements in the books as well.
For girly fiction, I recommend the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella. The 4th one just came out.
For romance I like anything by Jude Deveraux or Johanna Linsey.
Anything by Jennifer Crusie is good as well (some places have her in Fiction and some have her in Romance)

    Feb 17, 2009 by Books: Where the magic happens | Posted in Books & Authors

    For my literature class i have a choice between reading Frankenstein, The Scarlet Pimpernel, and another which i have already ruled out. Which do you think i should read and why?


    (Also isn't The Scarlet Pimpernel similar to Zorro? I seem to remember watching something with Daffy Duck called the Scarlet Pumpernickel. Are there any relations?)

    • I liked the Scarlet Pimpernel, but then I read a lot of books by Baroness Orckzy. They,re good if you like period, romantic fiction, rather on the light side.

      I have not read Frankenstein, but, from what I know of Mary Wolstenholme, I would imagine that the quality of the prose is very good.
