    3.5 STARSDo you have a go to author for particular moods Kinsella has been on my list of auto approved authors for dependable reads she is the mashed potato of books in the sense that her stories always bring me comfort and a smile to my face They aren t anything ground breaking typically these are your run of the mill chick lit that is predictable, but that is exactly why I pick them up, for their reliability This particular read was a little bit different than her previous books while she is heavily known for her Shopaholic series and other fluffy chick lit, this book was a little serious and less ditzy Sure, it still had all the makings of a light, palate cleansing read, but this one didn t have as much self deprecating humor and cheesy one liners that are found in her other reads.You pretty much know everything regarding the plot from the summary barring a couple of minor surprises along the way , but I think what surprised me deeply was how much realistic and developed her characters were in this book I liked picking up a new Kinsella with no ties to another series and I applaud her for taking a leap and trying something a bit out of her comfort zone I m pleased that she kept to a tradi...

    Kinsella is my go to for fun, feel good reads that demand very little of me After all these years, since the very first shopaholic book, I know exactly what I m going to get from her and I m totally good with that Unfortunately, though, a huge chunk of My Not So Perfect Life bored the pants off me.The author s books may be shallow and silly, but I have also always found them charming, funny and charismatic I couldn t help liking Becky Bloomwood I especially liked Audrey and her family from 2015 s Finding Audrey But I felt zero spark from Katie Brenner Or this book s love interest Or the story.Others have noted the similarities between this and The Devil Wears Prada, and that is especially true of the book s opening I would say it is practically identical Katie Brenner is starting her new job at a trendy marketing branding agency in London It all seems very glamourous, but her reality is running errands and filling out spreadsheets for her boss Demeter who also happens to be selfish and insensitive Demeter has the dream life, it seems, and everyone hates her.Then things take a turn for the worse when Katie is fired and must return to her family in the English countryside and settle into her new job helping out with their glamping business Until Demeter show...

    I read some Sophie Kinsella books back in the day and liked them so I thought I would get this one and give it a try I was worried because the summary didn t sound like my cup of tea, but Lord, I m glad I got it all because of Sophie Kinsella I freaking loved it Katie lives in London and she works at a job where she is trying to get noticed by her boss Demeter Katie is hoping she will see her potential and give her a real job Poor ole Katie is working check to check and living with some mates in a flat Katie also has a crush on her other boss, Alex She thinks something is going on with him and Demeter though She has this hate relationship with Demeter because she acts like she s better than anyone else She has the perfect life, the husband, the kids, the job, the house, the everything But, as we all know things aren t always what they seem Katie ends up losing her job and she moves out to the farm where her dad and stepmom live She gets all of these things set up for them to run a BB and for people to have a farm experience She does a great job and they start making money Then Demeter and her family show up Katie is about to freak because she didn t tell her dad that she lost her job, but ole Demeter doesn t recognize Katie because she has gone back to her ...

    It s no wonder Sophie Kinsella s books are so widely acclaimed She speaks of real contemporary issues in ways usually with humour that make the reader want to listen to what she says.She doesn t try to brainwash you She s not saying life is perfect, she s saying it s going to shit on you a good hundred times, and then maybe if you keep your head high you might just be fine probably.Kinsella s heroines all have the same voice I do wonder if I m the only one who s picked up on that That doesn t mean they re unoriginal Kinsella s women are witty and smart in surprising ways, but they re all a little lost in life and charmingly innocent They re also true working women who have ups and downs and with whom an important part of you will be able to connect Katie is no exception She s a twenty six year old trying to make it in this hard world Sadly, she realizes the guy she s falling for will never go out with her And she gets fired And her roommates are the worst And she s short on money and can afford close to nothing at all But does she pity her own situation Is she crying in a corner I mean, there...

    The last few books I read were dark, one of them was particularly dark GR friend Larry suggested that perhaps I needed a palate cleanser , and, yup, that s what I needed and I found it in Sophie Kinsella s My Not So Perfect Life I used to read Kinsella s Shopaholic books, but then I got tired of the formula and the rom com literary genre generally But it sure felt nice to revisit Kinsella when looking for something lighter Katie is a young woman from the British countryside who tries to make it in the London advertising world But life sucks in London she has difficult flat mates, no money, and what seems like an impossible boss True to the genre, things unravel, things start turning around, and then things work out While somewhat predictable, Kinsella is good at the genre Katie is a great character a bit naive, but mostly smart, strong and sporting a solid moral compass Kinsella mocks pretence and privilege, but still manages to make the people involved human than mere caricatures There s a decent underlying message about how people feel compelled to make their lives look better than they are especially on social media and how that makes it harder for people to deal with the real ups and downs of their lives There s some humour, there s some roma...

    Working in the behavioral health field, I see how people present themselves while in the waiting room and then I see the real deal once in my office The difference can be as extreme as night and day Lesson Everything ain t always as it seems It s just as easy to pass flattering judgments on people as it is to pass those of the disgruntled sort People who seem like they have the best life ever rarely do behind closed doors Let s face it, no one has a perfect anything My Not So Perfect Life is a prime example of this train of thought It was light, funny, heartfelt, unfair, revengeful, a little bit mysterious, redemptive, and real This book was a joy to read via audio and I would highly recommend it if you re a fan of chick lit Kinsella groupie or not, check it out My favorite quote I think I ve finally worked out how to feel good about l...

    My Not So Perfect Life is such a fun escape There s something about Sophie Kinsella s books that not only draw me in, but also make me laugh and smile Her characters are usually flawed but likable, and the main character in this book, Katie Brenner, follows suit Katie Cat Brenner is living her dream life It s not perfect, but she is willing to overlook her hour and half painful commute to work, her crazy boss, her tiny room in a shared flat, and her lack of a social life because she gets to live in London She is envious of her friends and her boss, who use social media to portray that they live the perfect lives Katie uses Instagram to make it seem as she is living a much glamorous life than she is living She believes so much in what others portray, that she doesn t realize that what s posted online isn t reality Things start to look up for Katie She is invited to socialize with some her coworkers, her crazy boss allows her to attend and important meeting, and she catches the eye of one of the partners in the ...

    So I am in a serious debate now.I can t decide if this is my new all time favorite book by Sophie Kinsella or if Twenties Girl is still my number oneOhh, this is so hard, it shouldn t be this hard Anyway, this book is perfect The end was a bit cheezy but not too cheezy, but still cheezy enough to spice everything up with flavour of loveOkay, now I m really rambling I won t bother you any, but just before...

    It s Monday morning.You wake up early, determined to get to work on time.You leave behind your crappy apartment and your crazy roommates.You run to catch the bus, but your high heels are killing you, so you miss the bus and you re forced to reach the metro station on foot, while the bypassing cars keep splashing you and your only trench coat with mud.Your feet are sore and your hair resembles a bird nest when you finally get in the train It is so crowded, though, that you end up accidentally eating the breakfast of the incredulous woman next to you.In the end you get to work, and commence your boring tasks while you day dream that one day they ll recognize your talent and promote you.And then she arrives Demeter Your boss The woman who inspires you with her brilliant ideas, her glossy hair and designer clothes, the woman who can t even remember your name But wait, she asks you to join her in her office This is it, you think and your chest is ready to explode This is your chance. And so, you enter her office, nervous but overly excited, preparing your thank you speach, until the moment she asks you to dye her hair.This is or less Katie s life, presented by Sophie Kinsella in a hilarious and refreshing manner Ambitious and devoted to her dreams, Katie left her family farm and her heavy accent in Somerset in order to pursuit her career in branding and promotion in h...
