My Not So Perfect Life - Sophie Kinsella

I've been under a lot of stress because of graduate work so I tend to gravitate towards lighthearted books that won't make my heart (or soul) feel sick. This book is one of them.


I enjoyed it enough, but as an avid Kinsella reader, something was missing. A spark, perhaps? I didn't care for Katie/Cat Brenner that much. I couldn't really say I have a grasp on her person after finishing. Her love interest and the entire romance plot felt tacked on and hollow. Her "love" for Alex happened way too quickly.


I did enjoy her relationship with Demeter, which I'm surprised to say.

I loved how they became friends in the end. Also, like other reviewers have pointed out, if you read the blurb you basically read 50% of the book. It's rather mindnumbing. 

(show spoiler)

Overall, the entire story felt too superficial and it made me sad because I really wanted to care.
