Book review: Remember me?

Title: Remember me?
Author: Sophie Kinsella
Genre: Chick lit

First sentence reads: Of all the crap, crap, crappy nights I've ever had in the whole of my life.

Rating: 4/5

This was one of the most fun book that I have read recently. It immediately perked me up and was such an entertainment.  Do you know how important is your memory?  You must read this book and it would leave you in stictches and at the same time would be a wake up call for taking things for granted.  Lexi wakes up in a private hospital thinking it was still year 2004 while it was already year 2007. All she could recall was having a good time with her friends in a pub and after that waiting for her then boyfriend, Loser Dave. Fed up with waiting for him, she tried to hail a taxi and in her rush had a nasty fall. Then she lost consciousness. She wakes up to a brand new her, perfect teeth, lovely straight hair and fuller lips and to Eric, her husband, which is news to her. She is tremendously upset that she missed her dad's funeral which was supposed to be the day after she went clubbing and also that she cant remember her wedding. Lexi is stumped that her life has taken a 360 degree turn as her best friends are not around anymore and a new guy is holding the keys to her previous life which she has no memories of. I absolutely adored Lexi and would say this is one book which doesn't disappoint in any way.  I am definitely going to read  other books by Sophie Kinsella. I am planning to read The Confession of a Shopaholic. I watched the movie and I loved it and now I'm eager to read it.

Favourite quotes:
I'm twenty-eight, I have perfect white teeth, a Louis Vuitton bag, a card saying director and a husband. how the hell did all that happen?
What if I never remember? I look around the room.What if all those memories are lost for good and I can never get them back?Ever?


  1. Remember Me? is a great book. I've read a bunch of Kinsella books and haven't been disappointed by any of them. They are a great laugh. The book, Confessions of a Shopaholic is very different from the movie.

  2. I loved this book. You MUST read Can you Keep a Secret by sophie kinsella. I think it is her best book. It is so funny but moving at the same time. I have read it countless times. Take a look at My Book Boyfriend post, I chose Jack from can you keep a secret.
