Remember Me? – Sophie Kinsella

15 Nov

Synopsis – Lexi wakes up in a hospital bed after a car accident, thinking it’s 2004 and she’s a twenty-five-year old with crooked teeth and a disastrous love life.But, to her disbelief, she learns it’s actually 2007 – she’s twenty-eight, her teeth are straight, she’s the boss of her department – and she’s married! To a good-looking millionaire! How on earth did she land the dream life??!

She can’t believe her luck – especially when she sees her stunning new home. She’s sure she’ll have a fantastic marriage once she gets to know her husband again. He’s drawn up a ‘manual of our marriage’, which should help.

But as she learns more about her new self, chinks start to appear in the perfect life. All her old colleagues hate her. A rival is after her job. Then a dishevelled, sexy guy turns up… and lands a new bombshell.

What the **** happened to her? Will she ever remember? And what will happen if she does?

My Thoughts – This book sounded really good from the synopsis, i couldnt wait to get started reading it, and Sophie Kinsella is meant to be a highly enjoyed author, so what could be wrong with this book?

It started off very well. Lexi wakes up in hospital following an accident and thinks its 2004. In fact, its 2007. She has lost three years of her life to amnesia and her life has totally changed. To start with, i thought how terrible, loose your memory and three years, have no idea who your husband is, and loose your old friends in the process.

Then i got a bit samey. It is chick lit, and i have read an awful lot of this genre, so its no wonder that i got a bit bored, but i was expecting spectacular things from this book. I have read that the Shoppaholic series is so much better, and I’m hoping so as i have the first two books already to read!

Dont get me wrong, it was enjoyable, but it wasnt one that stuck out from the crowd,, or will stick in my mind for much longer i would think. It is a good cosy read but not at all challenging.

Rating – 3/5
