Latest Read: Remember Me?
Remember Me?
By Sophie Kinsella
Summary:
When twenty-eight-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she’s in for a big surprise. Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident—in a Mercedes no less—Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she’s about to find out just how much things have changed.

My opinion:
I LOVE Sophie Kinsella. Ever since I discovered her books, I've enjoyed reading all of them. Remember Me? was published in 2008 in hardcover. The thing is-- I don't buy hardcovers. Unless they're in the bargain bin at Borders for 5 dollars. BUT I managed to find an "international" edition of the book in paperback at Walgreens. So I took the chance and bought the book. And I am so happy I did. Ever since I read the book summary I knew I wanted to read it. And I finally got my chance to do so. When I started reading the book I could not put it down. This led me to finish the book a couple of hours later. And when I did so, I finished with a happy sigh. This is the type of book I love.

Lexi Smart is a typical working young lady. She has an office job, a boyfriend and a normal life. Sure, it could be better. She didn't get a bonus, she got drunk with friends at a bar, her boyfriend stood her up, she got soaking wet and ended up falling off some stairs. But after this particular fall, she wakes up in a hospital to something she did not expect. Suddenly, she is the boss of her department at work. She has a rich husband, perfect teeth and gorgeous hair. Pretty much everything she could wish for. Until she discovers how many secrets this new life has and she begins to question where did she lose herself. This book was amazing!! Kinsella's writing kept me reading, questioning what really happened to Lexi Smart. How everything changed and who are these new people she knows. Especially, the way her personality changed all of a sudden. There is a nice detail of the love she finds in the story as well. But I'd consider that more as a side part of the plot. The main focus was finding herself. And this is what made me love this book so much. Lexi showed how strong she was throughout the entire book and how much she could do to not only discover herself, but to keep on going in life. In the end, Lexi made the right choices and proved herself. I definitely loved this book, the plot and the characters. Kudos to Kinsella. This is now one of my favorite books and my personal favorite book of hers.
