I was looking for a light read when I picked up this book from a used bookstore. With all the intense and deep analysis I work on all day, I need something that is very easy and relaxing to read. I recently stumbled upon the Shopaholic series and really enjoy Sophie Kinsella’s style of writing. I pick up a few of her books at a time to give me a few months of light reading material.
As with most of Kinsella’s writings, there is a ditzy but lovable heroine, Emma. She tells all her secrets to a stranger she meets on a plane. Only to find that he isn’t a stranger after all. Kinsella weaves an interesting story where you always want the heroine to come out on top and of course she does. This is a great light read for the beach or vacation or just to clear your mind. Its quite humorous and entertaining and will keep you smiling.
I would recommend this book if you enjoy Mary Kay Andrews writings and other chick lit books. If you enjoyed watching Bridget Jones Diary or Love Actually, I think you’ll enjoy this one. I usually buy paperback copies of my chick-lit and save my audible listenings for the self help and inspirational material.
This book was first published in 2003, the paperback version has about 300 pages. You can order a copy from here.
