I need to update booklikes shelves for the ebooks I've wishlisted at my public library (uses overdrive) before it grows completely out of control.
I'll be spacing out some posts for my wishlist from oldest to newest in the process.
Some are available now but not fitting my mood (or needing more research because not sure if read).
(Last books on page 17 of my wishlist)
I Picked Up This Book Because: I’ve been a fan of Sophie Kinsella’s work for years. I pick up everything she puts out.
I am practically in tears as I type this. Katie has bored me into DNF-ing this book. I’ve never DNF’d a Sophie Kinsella book. I can usually slog through and find the good in even my least favorite book (looking at you Twenties Girl). Considering I found Finding Audrey to be one of the best books I read in 2016 I’m really disappointed that I could not move any further in this book. Seriously I was cleaning to avoid reading it. Oh well, it won’t stop me from picking up the next book published by Ms Kinsella.
The Random Thoughts:
*DNF so no rating
Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. She’s made a mistake so huge, it’ll wreck any chance of a partnership.
Going into utter meltdown, she walks out of her London office, gets on a train, and ends up in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she’s mistaken for an interviewee and finds herself being offered a job as housekeeper. Her employers have no idea they’ve hired a lawyer–and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven. She can’t sew on a button, bake a potato, or get the #@%# ironing board to open. How she takes a deep breath and begins to cope–and finds love–is a story as delicious as the bread she learns to bake.
But will her old life ever catch up with her? And if it does…will she want it back?
I found this to be an enjoyable fun light read with many laugh out loud moments. Easy to relate to story and a wonderful cast of side characters. Predictable storyline sure, but filled with a lot of little surprising moments. Sophia Kinsella, never fails to leave me with a smile on my face after finishing one of her books.
Katie the main character is a working woman at the bottom of the ladder in a difficult job situation. She has a nightmare boss, low pay and feels the need to lie to all about her life. She was born and raised in the country but works hard to not be that country girl. She wants to be a London Girl, chic and entertaining. Everything goes wrong, from her lovely flat, to her job and then the mud starts flying.
