Waiting on Wendesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases we can’t wait to read.
This week I am eagerly anticipating:
My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella
Publisher: Bantam Press
Publication Date: February 9th, 2017
Caz Brenner is living the dream – she has a flat in London, a job in creative branding, and her Instagram feed is full of all the amazing things London has to offer: delicious food and beautiful sights and lots of fun. Ok, so the crappy truth is that she rents a tiny room in Catford with no space for a wardrobe, spends most of her days engaged in tedious admin on the other side of the city, and posts photos of food she could never ever afford to eat. But it’s all just about worth it.
Until her bright and shiny life comes crashing down: her demanding boss Demeter gives her sack, and with no means to live in London any more, Caz has to move home to Somerset. Now she’s plain old Katie Brenner again, helping out her dad and her stepmum as they attempt to launch a glamping business on their farm. (They think she’s on sabbatical from her job, and she can’t quite bear to tell them the truth…)
With Katie’s creative branding experience, the glamping is soon a big success. So much so that Demeter and her family book in on holiday – and Katie sees her chance to get revenge on the woman who ruined her dream. So long as Demeter doesn’t see beyond her disguise and give the game away to her parents, of course.
It’s time to see who’s the boss…
Why am I waiting?
If you follow this blog for a while, you probably know that Sophie Kinsella is the one who got me into reading for pleasure. Her book Can You Keep a Secret showed me that reading can be fun, and her Shopaholic series made me eagerly going into library in a search for the new book.
After I ran out of all Kinsella’s books, I simply countinued reading other british chick lits.
It has been years since Sophie released her last standalone adult novel, and I really need my Kinsella fix, so I simply can’t wait to read this new story by her, that sounds like a lot of fun!
