My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella; release date February 7, 2017; published by Random House; ISBN 9780812998269
Katie ‘Cat’ Brenner is living her dream life in London, or at least that’s what she wants her family and friends to believe when they see her Instagram photos. Everyone else’s life is perfect so why would they want to know about her excruciatingly long commute, horrible roommates and underwhelming job? When an unexpected change at work forces her to return to her family home in the countryside, Katie is forced to reevaluate her life, her priorities and along the way learns an important life lesson: not everything is as perfect as it seems.
Sophie Kinsella has such a knack for creating lighthearted and fun stories, with relatable and likeable characters. It’s one of the main reasons I come back to her books every time. With My Not So Perfect Life, Sophie Kinsella has captured perfectly the society we live in today, where the appearance of happiness, success and perfection is so much more important than the messiness and unglamorous reality of everyday life.
A fun, entertaining and (surprisingly) thought provoking read. I absolutely recommend to pick this one up from your local library or bookstore.
