Book – I’ve been reading a lot of Sophie Kinsella recently. The Summer season always puts me in the mood for lighthearted comedies, and Kinsella’s books really hit the spot.
Remember Me? (not to be confused with the emotionally moving film featuring Robert Pattinson, although also worth a gander), by Sophie Kinsella , is a great choice for anyone who loves a good mystery with their comedy. The novel follows Lexi sMART, a spunky young woman nicknamed “Snaggletooth,” who’s having a pretty crappy time in life. It’s 2004, and her boyfriend, Loser Dave, is always a no show, she was the only one who didn’t get a bonus at work, and then she’s in an accident to top it off.
When Lexi wakes up from her accident, she can’t remember anything. It’s suddenly 2007, and she has no memory of the past three years. She can’t recognize the tan, slim, flawless woman in the mirror. Life seems perfect: she’s married to a drop-dead gorgeous man, lives in a million dollar penthouse and is head of the company! Things couldn’t be better, or so it would appear. But things start to fall through when Lexi learns what kind of person she’s become, and just how imperfect her life really is. Is it too late to rewind and change those last three years? Is the past really lost for good? Dive in to find out what happens!
With a quirky cast, drama, and secrets, Remember Me? makes a splash as a beachside read! If you fancy some more Kinsella books, I highly recommend checking out Can You Keep a Secret? and The Undomestic Goddess.
