Chick Lit

I first heard of Sophie Kinsella at an interview I went for early last year. The interviewer’s office was full of books and I definitely had to take a good look around, she noticed this and asked if I liked to read,then asked if I had heard of Sophie Kinsella, I said no. I got home and decided to google her up, then I saw she wrote Confessions of a Shopaholic which is the film adaptation of two of her novels – The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Abroad. Of course, like every other normal person, I loved the movie. I downloaded the book and a few others of hers. I didn’t get the job tho, well, I didn’t like the job so I didn’t go for it.

Late last year, I bought a copy of The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic and Twenties Girl. Some time last week, I followed Joke to the mall to get a mouse, and we found ourselves in a bookstore and the books were on sale. Whhaaaattttttt??!!! I was going to just look around for a bit, and that was what I was doing till I started seeing books I had read. At that point, I knew I was in the right place. I walked around a bit and did some searching and got a wonderful deal, 3 books for 2k. Err, not so wonderful, but heyy, I finally found a paperback copy of The Undomestic Goddess.

 

joke un
Joke is The Undomestic Goddess personified!! 

Sophie Kinsella is the queen of chick lit, I’m serious, she is. The undomestic goddess is about a lawyer, Samantha Sweeting, making a huge career mistake that cost her her job. She mistakenly (well, not exactly) lands a job as a housekeeper in the countryside. As the title says, she’s extremely undomestic and has great difficulty keeping up, she eventually finds help and love along the way. I love how Sophie writes, she details the emotions and you can totally feel everything and picture each scenario.

and her dress made a wonderful background.

Sometimes I like to feel like I’m an undomestic goddess, I mean I can work an oven, boil rice, but then I have my limits.

And oh by the way, Sophie Kinsella is the pen name of Madeleine Sophie Wickham.

A New Beginning

Hollywood actor Dayne Matthews and Katy Hart are married and living in Bloomington, Indiana, where Dayne has found a solution to his on-camera love scenes – he wants Katy to star in his next film. Katy wins the part and is cast opposite her superstar husband. The story of a small-town girl’s dream come true is too much for the press to resist, and in an effort to appease them, the couple agrees to a twelve-episode reality show. It seems like the perfect compromise, but by the time Dayne and Katy finish filming the movie, they feel cracks around the edges of their marriage. Now they face an uncertain future and possible the end of everything that truly matters to them.
