With the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism that have made her Shopaholic novels beloved international bestsellers, Sophie Kinsella delivers a hilarious new novel and an unforgettable new character. Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets:Secrets from her mother:I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur.Sammy the goldfish in my parents’ kitchen is not the same goldfish that Mum gave me to look after when she and Dad were in Egypt.Secrets from her boyfriend:I weigh one hundred and twenty-eight pounds. Not one eighteen, like Connor thinks.I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.From her colleagues:When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.) It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times.Secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone in the world:My G-string is hurting me.I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is.Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger.But come Monday morning, Emma’s office is abuzz about the arrival of Jack Harper, the company’s elusive CEO. Suddenly Emma is face-to-face with the stranger from the plane, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her. Things couldn’t possibly get worse—Until they do.

0.0 Can You Keep A Secret? (DNF/Not Rated)
I was able to get through enough of this book to see that this could have been a fun read, but I was so annoyed by the first-person-present-tense that I couldn’t force myself to continue beyond the first few chapters.

0.0 Can You Keep a Secret?
Ugh, how can so many people adore this book? I made it to 11% before I remembered life is way too short to read about such a depressing character. Emma is a self-deluding door mat with an honesty problem. Her panicked confession of secrets on a bumpy flight was amusing, but that's really all I could...

2.5 Review: Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
I was looking for a lighthearted fluffy kind of romance and in certain respects, this book delivered. Emma Corrigan is a heroine who makes endless blunders and has socially awkward moments that made me smile and laugh. She is basically an airhead times one hundred, which I initially didn't mind bu...

2.0 Can You Keep a Secret?
Initial thoughts: Maybe I should've read Can You Keep A Secret? before I've Got Your Number because the latter was published much later in Sophie Kinsella's writing career and was way funnier. A lot of the times I wanted to smack the protagonist's head because she was so incredibly naive and shallow...
