This would usually be the time when I would ask the largely rhetorical and semi-pathetic question, “Why do I keep reading Sophie Kinsella books?” Well, this time the answer is blatantly obvious—the plot of this one involves amnesia, yo, and I can never resist amnesia—and the question is kind of unfair. Because this wasn’t so bad—far less annoying than the last few Shopaholic books. Kinsella’s strength has always been her ability to create an amusing, fast-paced narrative, and coupled with the a ...more

Sophie Kinsella's books follow a formula that's as simple and delicious as my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Start with a twenty-something heroine who's slogging away at her career in London. She's far from perfect. Neither an Oxbridge graduate, cover girl, or WAG of a world-class footballer, our girl's best quality is that she's a true-blue friend. She's a pretty hard worker, decent and well-meaning. She hasn't a mean bone in her body. Her flaws tend to run in the direction of materiali

This book represents every reason why I do not just pick up adult novels and read them without getting a trusted opinion. But, I'd heard of this author from her previous work (even though I've never read them), it's been well received, and the description sounded interesting, so I thought I'd try it. The fact that every other page contained the f-word (not an exaggeration) was enough to turn me off to the book. Add in the fact that the characters discussion of sex made it sound more like a boys ...more

My First Sophie Kinsella Book
Lexie Smart. Was she or was she not Ghandi in a previous life? The fun and farcical story of Lexie Smart has the heroine in this tale, Remember Me?, wondering how she got to a completely different station in life between the years 2004 and 2007. She believes she's stumbled into a dream life, but soon steps into a hornet's nest of complications, including finding out she's married to a "guy she just met," Eric, who is so rigid you have to sit up straighter just readin

I really enjoyed this one! My favorite Kinsella book to date. I'm still not a fan of the relationship storyline that I get from this book and the other two adult SK books I've read... I don't know if it's the chick lit genre or just Kinsella, but I'm hoping some of her other books have something different to offer. But aside from that, the story was so funny and crazy but it just worked. I was laughing out loud and cringing all the way! Is it just me or does Sophie know ho

Sophie Kinsella é Sophie Kinsella...a rainha do chick-lit! Os seus livros divertem-me como ninguém se bem que entre todos os livros únicos da autora, este é capaz de ser o mais fraquinho (Agora lembrei-me do "És capaz de guarda um segredo? esse sim é o mais fraco dela!) Ainda assim foi uma boa leitura de entretenimento.

A sinopse lança basicamente a premissa do livro, temos a Lexi que numa noite de farra com as amigas, cai ao tentar apanhar um táxi. Na manhã seguinte, acorda numa cama de hospital

The idea behind this book is thought provoking - Ladies, what would you do if you suddenly woke up in the hospital to find out that not only have you no memory of the last three years of your life, but that everything you do remember has changed? This would include your appearance (for the Better!), your career (you've been Promoted!), your love life (You're Married!! & to a really good-looking guy), your lifestyle (Fantastic! Your husband is rich and you make three times as much as you used ...more

Lexi Smart has the most ironic name in literature. I think there must be houseplants smarter than she is. Pages and pages and chapters and chapters of her trying to digest the fact that she doesn't remember the last three years. And it's like each new thing she learns is this totally amazing, unexpected event. "I'll send your sister in, then, shall I" and she spends two pages wondering who the sullen teen is who enters the room. What, you can't add three to 12 and come up with teen? She seriousl ...more
Opening Line: “How long have I been awake? Is it morning yet? I feel so rough. What happened last night? God my head hurts.”

This was a super fun read as all of Kinsella’s books are. Not too much brain-power needed, just a good time so if you’re in the mood for chick-lit it doesn’t get much better than this.

REMEMBER ME was addictively hard to put down as well as LOL funny in places and I got sucked right into the chaos of the heroine’s life and the double romance. Imagine not remembering that yo

I was very disappointed in this book. I felt like the author was spending more time trying to use every swear word she had ever heard than developing a good story. The concept intrigued me -- who isn't interested in amnesia? But the story was really about unhappiness and unfaithfulness. It was uninspired. That being said, if any of my friends still want to read it I read it with a black marker in my hand and now at least the bad language and some scenes are edited out!

I'm not sure I can quite write down the reasons why I love Sophie Kinsella so much.
But these books... they're so refreshing - the absolute best solution to cure reading slumps - so full of life, hilarious just to think about...
Sure, they do have their faults. Our main characters are somewhat uninteresting at times and the situations they get themselves into are utterly ridiculous. But it's all... SO MUCH FUN! That's how I can describe Kinsella's work best.
In Remember Me we have the amnesia facto

Oke. Buku ini selesai gue baca hanya dalam waktu beberapa jam saja.
Sebenernya bukan karena ceritanya yang menarik banget, tapi karena emang gue ngga bisa tidur aja.

Untuk ukuran buku yang menceritakan tentang tokoh utama yang kena amnesia, buku ini ngga terlalu rumit untuk diikutin jalan ceritanya.

*catatan: bukan tipe-tipe amnesia yang seperti di sinetron Indonesia yah. Yang jatuh terguling-guling dari tangga, terus pas buka mata udah ada di rumah sakit dengan kepala diperban, dan bertanya-tanya

I love Sophie Kinsella. Whenever I read her novels, I can't help but think she seems like the kind of woman I'd be friends with. She writes the way I think, and I can relate to at least one aspect of every single one of her characters. I AM her demographic.

I also love Kinsella's imaginitive plots. In Remember Me?, Lexi wakes up in hospital with a head injury and quickly realizes she's lost three years of her memory. In her mind, it's 2004 and she's your typical, underpaid twenty-something with a

Feb 27, 2008 Keris rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
It's not the waking up in hospital that freaks out Lexi Smart. It's the fact that she's got nails to die for, porcelain veneers, a glossy mane of hair, a Louis Vuitton handbag, she's Manager of a whole department ... and, oh yes, she's married to a drop-dead gorgeous millionaire husband.

The only drawback she can see is that she's aged three years. But then so has her mother and (not-so-now) little sister.

How the hell did all that happen?

And what happened to the last three years?

Nov 11, 2015 Nawal rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
It's official, I love Sophie Kinsella. Her writing has everything, romance, humour, quirks and drama. Everything is perfectly balanced. I thought I would never read chick-lit again (thanks to horrible experiences prompted by Sarah Dessen). And honestly I thought this would be really basic and cliche, but it's heartfelt and absolutely adorable. Mont Blanc had me laughing so hard. Loved it.
Really good chick lit/women's fiction about what drives a person to change their life around...and the repercussions one then regrets.

The main character, Lexi, suffers amnesia after a car accident and can't remember the last three years. Her last memory was of her self as a loser with a loser life...but she wakes up to a hunk of a husband, a promotion at work, and a new look. Seems perfect, right, but she soon discovers it's not and has to figure out what made her change before she can make it b

Sorry Ms. Kinsella, but this book did not live up to my expectations based on the Shopaholic series. The characters were not at all likable and the plot never meshed. Like a good meal that's been eaten too many times, the chick-lit recipe of "kooky single girl has life fall apart, meets boy of her dreams, loses him, gets him back and lives happily ever after" is getting worn out and stale. Authors of this genre need to bring some aspect to the story that's unique in order to make the book intere ...more

I can always count on Sophie Kinsella's books for a delightful escape, and this one is no exception. Her newest heroine, Lexi, is just as lovable as her others, and she has retained the knack of making me laugh out loud and tear up at the same time. When you finally learn about the sunflower reference on the cover, I hope it takes your breath away as it did for me. Enjoy this charming story!

This book was so satisfying, I actually closed the book and sighed when it was over. I love Sophie Kinsella. She's just a guilty pleasure. I know this is not great literature, some of her characters are one-dimensional (Eric, the husband) and I can always see the end coming a mile away, but I just feel so good after reading one of her books.

Tinha bastante curiosidade em ler alguma coisa da Sophie Kinsella e o resultado é que me diverti imenso :DD é um livro leve, descontraído, não dá vontade de o largar, pois estava super curiosa com a vida da Lexi que aterrou amnésica num conto de fadas e as reviravoltas que se iam suceder ....e fartei-me de rir, rir e rir :DD

Although this book wasn't as funny nor as romantic as her other books I have read I really enjoyed reading this. I was really cheering for Lexi because after she wakes up and realizes she lost three years of her life she has a pretty hard time adjusting to this seemingly perfect life. I just knew something had to be wrong with Eric. He was just too perfect. His perfect image slowly faded away through the book and we were left with this empty, shallow, uncompassionate moron. What was also sad was ...more

Quando Lexi acorda no hospital, não tem qualquer memória dos últimos três anos da sua vida. Assim, intrigadíssimas, transitamos com ela das suas recordações de 2004 para o desconhecido, em 2007. Como é que Lexi passou de uma miúda com uns quilinhos as mais, cabelo mortiço, dentes a precisar urgentemente de correcção e um namorado misógino - uma Lexi que, digamos de uma vez por todas, velejava a velocidade desastrosa num mar de azar - para uma autêntica Barbie morena e bem sucedida?!

Until I started book blogging, I used to refer to some books as guilty pleasures. I've tried to stop doing this because I don't think anyone should feel like anything they enjoy is less worthy just because it isn't Shakespeare or a prize-winning bestseller. Sophie Kinsella's books were previously filed under "guilty pleasure", so when I saw Remember Me? in a charity shop for a bargainous 50p, I dived back in.

No it's not a challenging read, and yes it's fairly predictable, but I absolutely love i
Well, sadly this book was NOT up to Kinsella's standards, in my opinion. I made it about half way through and decided that it just was not picking-up, was not that amusing or entertaining or enjoyable, and really not worth my time to finish it. The plot seemed rather predictable, the humor stilted, and I couldn't get into the characters. Sigh. Annie and I were so looking forward to it, too. Oh well, this will give us more time to read other books together, like the sequel to "Larklight" which we ...more
