I don’t read. I listen. Does that count? I am currently reading:
She’s one of my favorite authors. I read all the Shopaholic books and LOVED THEM! I also read a few of her other books out of the series and LOVED THEM! Now that I’m listening to this one – I LOVE IT!
Everywhere Katie Brenner looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie’s life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle—from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she’s trying to negotiate. No wonder Katie takes refuge in not-quite-true Instagram posts, especially as she’s desperate to make her dad proud.
Then, just as she’s finding her feet—not to mention a possible new romance—the worst happens. Demeter fires Katie. Shattered but determined to stay positive, Katie retreats to her family’s farm in Somerset to help them set up a vacation business. London has never seemed so far away—until Demeter unexpectedly turns up as a guest. Secrets are spilled and relationships rejiggered, and as the stakes for Katie’s future get higher, she must question her own assumptions about what makes for a truly meaningful life.
Sophie Kinsella is celebrated for her vibrant, relatable characters and her great storytelling gifts. Now she returns with all of the wit, warmth, and wisdom that are the hallmarks of her bestsellers to spin this fresh, modern story about presenting the perfect life when the reality is far from the truth.
This book is on target with today’s society of social media creations of what we want people to think our lives are like. I am loving this book!
I finished up Truly Madly Guilty. Gosh it was a long book. But it was pretty good. I hate endings that aren’t what I consider “wrapped up.” Just saying.
Sugar Free is going strong on DAY 5!!!! This is a MAJOR day for those you in the challenge. This is the day your bodies are saying – OK! You shouldn’t have any real cravings for sugar right now and you should be feeling good. It is normal to see some changes in your skin now too! Woot woot!
I haven’t mentioned it but you know you should be drinking a lot of water. I mean water is kind of like the miracle fluid. Or maybe it is just the miracle fluid.
We haven’t discussed activity. Your happy little soon to be tight butt better be moving like none other. How about we set a goal of three miles a day. After work, before work, put on your kicks and shorts (unless you’re in Maine) and take off. For you non runners I dare you to add in a burst of running (thirty seconds) every few minutes.
No sugar + physical exertion = Svelte Lady and Stud Muffin man (sans the muffin!)
