Book Review: Remember Me? By Sophie Kinsella
My coworker and friend Ashlie and I are both young English teachers who love a fantastic beach read. We love to walk around bookstores and create never-ending lists of books we want to read, but after a long year of teaching and analyzing, all we wanted was a quick, mindless, yet interesting read. Sophie Kinsella's Remember Me? fit the bill completely.
I spent my entire Friday evening soaking up this book from start to finish. It felt so incredibly refreshing to read for fun and to dive into Lexie Smart's story. The book opens with Lexie and her group of friends out on the town on a rainy night after a difficult day; the evening, as predicted, ends in a bit of an accident. When Lexie wakes up, she finds herself three years later: married, wealthy, and fit--without any recollection of how she got there. The novel is her journey to figure out who she really is, how she got there, and who she wants to be in the future. Of course, there's a mystery man, a corporate job, and obnoxious friends and family members that make Lexie's life more complicated and more fascinating.
Perhaps it was because I was craving such a read, but I can't find any fault with this book. Having read a novel from her Shopaholic series and loving it, I knew I was in for a great experience and I was right. I would highly recommend you add this to your summer reading lists!
