My Not So Perfect Life

My Not So Perfect Life - Sophie Kinsella

Entertaining and captivating are two words that come to mind when I think about this novel. I was deeply involved inside Cat’s world as she tried to prove to the world that she was an intelligent and capable individual. Trying to live out her dream in London, Cat is trying to make a name for herself in the business world but it’s not working. She’s told she must exert herself if she wants to succeed which is not Cat’s strong point but is something that she must do or she will be overlooked. Cat looks at her boss Demeter and she sees perfection. She wants what Demeter has and she has decided that she will do what it takes. Cat returns home to Somerset to visit her family, her father and Biddy inform her that they want to set up a family -run business of glamping and they want Cat’s help. Cat tells them that she will help but her job in London is her first priority. It was here in the novel that I could not tear myself away as things quickly picked up and I couldn’t put it down until I was finished. It was a wonderful story, so real and fun to read. I was dreading the final pages. A boyfriend was not on Cat’s list of objectives for London but she has finally found a person she felt comfortable with, someone she could talk to and have fun with. Little does she know how important and how complicated things will get having this person in her life.


It was a humorous, high-energy story about life. Life that involves twists and turns and choices that we make because they are our dreams. This was my second Sophie Kinsella novel, I really should read more of hers.

I received a copy of this novel from NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review.
