I'm Reading... Sophie Kinsella
The first Shopaholic book - Confessions of a Shopaholic - had me in stitches. I'd be reading in bed at all hours and wake my poor sleeping husband with a snort or a bark or a raucous guffaw. Because it's so...damn...funny. Twenties Girl is just as good, and perhaps even stronger.
With CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET?, she just keeps on being ridiculously heavenly wonderful! As she does so beautifully well here she weaves a lovely romance between a regular girl and a fantasy hero in a way that's completely believable while being just a little nutty. Throw in a good dollop of family issues, winsome and odd friends, a smattering of true to life workmates and the story has a rich context that makes the story as much about the girl finding herself as the girl finding the one. And did I mention its funny? IT'S BLOODY HILARIOUS!
Can You Keep a Secret? is warm, lovable, clever, and laugh out loud funny, just like anything Sophie Kinsella writes, methinks. Keeper? Wish I'd written it? You bet!
