My Two Cents – My *Not so* Perfect Life {Review}

My Not So Perfect Life

Everywhere Katie Brenner looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie’s life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle—from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she’s trying to negotiate. No wonder Katie takes refuge in not-quite-true Instagram posts, especially as she’s desperate to make her dad proud.
Then, just as she’s finding her feet—not to mention a possible new romance—the worst happens. Demeter fires Katie. Shattered but determined to stay positive, Katie retreats to her family’s farm in Somerset to help them set up a vacation business. London has never seemed so far away—until Demeter unexpectedly turns up as a guest.

Hello Friends!

I read My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella recently. I borrowed it from the library and I am glad that I did.

While the book was cute,  it was just like every other Sophie Kinsella adult contemporary. Girl meets boy, something happens, girl goes through something t hat changes her outlook on  life, girl gets boy. There wasn’t anything new to it, that being said I did still enjoy it for what it was and it was a very quick read. I used it as a palate cleanse between YA themed fantasy novels. I’d say it did the trick.

I really don’t have a lot to say about this book. If you’ve read one Kinsella book, you’ve pretty much read them all. If you enjoy Sophie’s work, then definitely give it a read. If you just think they are ok, you’re probably good to pass this one up unless you can borrow it like I did or get it free some other way.
