My Not So Perfect Life
"This is the trouble with meeting people in real life: They don't come with profiles attached." ~ 18%
Every now and again, I like to indulge in this little genre known as chick lit. Some argue it has no substance, that the stories are fluff. I disagree. The stories can be well written and quite entertaining. So whenever I see a new chick lit novel by author Sophie Kinsella, I do not think twice before picking it up. She's never let me down! And this new release is no exception.
Part love story, part workplace drama—My Not So Perfect Life is a look at how social media obsession paints a false judgment. Lives look perfect on Instagram and Facebook, but are they really? Katie "Cat" Brenner's life is a daily struggle. Odd flatmates that stock up on whey. No posh townhouse or glam job. Katie is so low on the professional totem pole, that her boss makes her dye roots in the office. Then out of nowhere, Katie is fired. Now what will she post on Instagram? Katie retreats to her family's farm giving London a break. But unexpected guests and a possible new romance may help Katie's real life match her social media posts.
"Well, my filter is the 'this is how I'd like it to be' filter." ~ 16%
My Not So Perfect Life is the perfect chick lit read this winter. Happy Pub Day, Sophie Kinsella.
