There's something about Sophie Kinsella's books that keep drawing me back in.
Its just fun, easy reading that is at its core, pure escapism.

I hear they're making this into a movie and i'm very intrigued to see how it turns out! ( )

I need to get better at rating things honestly. 2 stars on GR is "it was okay" and this was just okay. It was a fun listen. Entertainment for the commute if nothing else. It was told strictly from the main characters POV which was sometimes hilarious and sometimes really annoying. There was too much judgement in this story, which maybe I should have expected from a book about secrets. ( )

Rereading this one for the zillionth time. Maybe my favourite Sophie Kinsella book (either this one, the first Shopaholic or I've Got Your Number). Just such a good mix of heart, humour, romance and the sparkly bubbliness I've come to expect from her. ( )

I don't know who came up with the idea that chick-lit was equal to scatterbrained female characters, shallow personalities, bitchy co-workers and an outlandish fascination with lipsticks. But whoever it was, he/she/it was wrong. As a woman, I think I am feeling even a tad insulted here.

The only reason for not rating it with one lousy star is because, at times, I was slightly interested in the story.

Total mindless chicklit hilarity. Fun! ( )

Emma (± 21) werkt in Londen als marketing-assistente bij Panther NV, wat haar familie te min vindt, zodat ze haar werk aandikt. Ook tegen haar nieuwe vriend, de knappe maar saaie Connor, maakt ze dingen mooier. Als tijdens een zakenreisje haar vliegtuig in turbulentie terechtkomt, raakt ze in paniek en biecht haar onbekende buurman haar geheimen op. Bij aankomst is ze zo in de war dat ze Connors voorstel om samen te wonen accepteert. Haar biechtvader blijkt echter Jack, haar hoogste baas te zijn die alles heeft onthouden wat ze zei en belangstelling voor haar heeft. [...]. Van de Engelse financieel journaliste verschenen enkele bestsellers. Ook deze luchtige roman, die vooral werkende jonge vrouwen van ± 18 tot 32 zal aanspreken, leest lekker weg. Een herkenbaar verhaal, waarin heel veel in hoog tempo gebeurt, met vaak komische misverstanden, romantiek en veel Engelse humor.
