For those that know me, know that have a ridiculously long commute. In order for me to keep my sanity in check I use my much adored Ipod and audio books to keep me entertained and sane. Today I finished the recent novel of one of my favorite authors, Sophie Kinsella. Her newest novel, REMEMBER ME? was so captivating that I even had my commute partner/co-worker hooked on the story within minutes. I will never be able to think of "monte blanc" the same way again. LOL!

This novel is a story of woman named Lexi Smart and her adventures of getting her life back after a car crash that has left her with amnesia. Last she remembers, she has a mediocre life and looks with close friends and a loser boyfriend. She wakes up to find that she is beautiful with a gorgeous husband, the company big shot with different friends. How did this all happen? With her mind still stuck three years in reverse, Lexi greets this brave new world determined to be the person she is told that she is. Until..a handsome architect drops the biggest bombshell of all. Her new "perfect" life is turned upside down for it turns out, comes complete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue.
I loved this story because Lexi is so lovable and REAL! You will not be disappointed with this book! Sophie Kinsella has done an amazing job of a fresh new character who finds herself in a life-changing and utterly hilarious predicament.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to read an engaging story with some great laughs. Make sure to clear your social calendar for once you start, you will not be able to put it down. I cannot talk about it enough, but I will let the author talk about Remember Me and let you listen for yourself and see how you have to read this book

I had problems trying to figure out what name I wanted to give this Blog-o-mine. I know many like to talk about everything, but I find that my life is a bit boring so I wanted to go into the happy stuff. George, starbucks, shoes, chocolate, books and traveling. Yup, those are my happy things. I don't have the new Charlaine Harris, but I wish I did. I cannot wait for her newest "Sookie" novel.
