Hey Potterhearts, I have read some of Sophie Kinsella’s books and I loved them….. The stories are first-rate😃 This post contains the books I have read so far.
1. The Undomestic Goddess
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 a housekeeper by a rich couple. Her employers have no idea they’ve hired a lawyer(that too a famous one)–and Samantha has no idea about stitching, cooking or how to open the #@%# ironing board. She explores a new world….. Where she learns to stitch, cook, do the laundary and fall in love…. But when her old life catches with her, will she want it back?
This book’s plot was so different yet amazing. It is something you won’t even think about….. It took me 2 days to read it. One can experience Samantha’s world as it changes. Totally awesome….Unputdownable
2. I’ve Got Your Number
Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry the ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. In a hotel fire drill she loses her engagement ring which has been in Magnus’s family for 3 generations (and that too on the day when Magnus’s parents are coming ). Moreover in the panic her phone gets stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfectly perfect!
Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree and wants his phone back. He doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading his messages and wading into his personal life. Poppy is not too happy with it but has to act as his P.A.
What ensues is a rib-tickling and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other’s lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls, and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents . . . she soon realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.
This book was extremely chucklesome…😁 Poppy was trying to find her ring, working as Sam’s P.A, doing wedding preparations and trying hard that Magnus and his parents do not come to know that she has lost the precious ring….. It was killing.
3. Confessions Of A Shopaholic
Rebecca Bloomwood is a journalist. She spends her working life telling others how to manage their money, while her leisure time is spent in shopping.
Retail therapy is the answer to all her problems. She knows she should stop, but she can’t. She tries Cutting Back, she tries Making More Money but neither seems to work. The stories she concocts become more and more fantastic as she tries to untangle her increasingly dire financial difficulties. Her only comfort is to buy herself something – just a little something…
Can she ever escape from this financial crisis, find true love, and regain the use of her Switch card?
Rebecca has her closet full to the brim but still she can’t stop. When she feels happy or sad she wants to buy something. It was quite hilarious at reading and imagining her trying to cut back or save. It was a light read. Ok if you don’t have anything else to read or nothing to do.😏
Personally I loved the first two books but I am never going to read the shopaholic series until I am left with no option.
Do tell me which is your favourite Sophie Kinsella book? 😁
