Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella

Published in 2008. 389 pages.


Sophie Kinsella's latest novel, Remember Me?, was the perfect thing for me to read while sick in bed earlier this week!

This is what Kinsella had to say in "Behind the Book" on the amazon website:

All my books involve some kind of wish-fulfillment; some kind of escapism - whether it's shopping, or a whirlwind romance, or stepping off the career treadmill - and Remember Me? is maybe the ultimate form of wish-fulfillment. What if you didn't recognize your life ... because it had become so perfect? The image that kept coming to me was of a girl, blinking up at her Greek god of a husband, whom she doesn't recognize. It made me giggle every time I thought about it. And so I created my amnesiac heroine Lexi, and her perfect new glossy, unrecognizable life - from the new shiny teeth to the designer handbag, to the perfect millionaire husband. The potential for comedy was irresistible.

  4. I think this is going to win as next month's read in my ChickLitCafe book group. I really like Kinsella's stand-alone books.

  6. Wasn't it cute? I think this is her strongest book yet, and the main character's dilemma was very well done. It would be perfect for someone sick, hope you are feeling better.
