Twenties Girl - Sophie Kinsella
I bought this book in the Edmonton Airport on my way to my excellent vacation in Las Vegas. I started reading it a bit on the way to Vegas but never really got into it until my flight home. I couldn't out it down after I started. I laughed out loud soooo many times that I think I scared the guy next to me (I was also pretty sick so that might have scared him as well).
Amazon.ca says "Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women don’t get visited by ghosts. Or do they?
When the spirit of Lara’s great-aunt Sadie–a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance–mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions. Her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, her start-up company is floundering, and she’s just been dumped by the “perfect” man."
This was a really fun, girly book. I always love Sophie Kinsella's books but I always tend to forget how much I love them until I read the newest one. They make me feel happy and make me feel like perhaps some sort of true love is out there - even if you have to go through many bad relationships to find it.
Lara would be my favorite character. She was very much like some woman that I know - especially when it came to her craziness surrounding trying to get her boyfriend back. I know tons of women who would easily make their man come back to them if they could - even if it wasn't real feelings on their part. I just loved how this book was written and how Lara changed throughout the novel. This could be one of my favorite Sophie Kinsella books. I could see this making an excellent movie and I hope that we see some more Sophie Kinsella books turned into movies!!
