My (not so) Perfect Life
This post was updated on 02/05/18
I have loved all of Sophie Kinsella's books, so when I saw she had a new one published, I couldn't wait to read it. I describe myself as a recovering perfectionist, so the title hooked me in straight away.
Reason number three why I had to read this new book: I have recently started using Instagram. It is really interesting thinking about how true to life, what you see on Instagram is. I even discovered the hashtag #IRL In real life! So is what you see on Instagram, really what someone's life is like?
The books delves beyond that into the image people portray or even the image you assume about people, isn't always accurate. A well known and appropriate phrase here would be, don't judge a book by its cover. I could relate to both the characters and story lines. I wanted to know what happened to Katie and the other characters and without giving anything away-there were good outcomes all round. This book was a pleasure to pick up and read and I loved the themes running through it. Not forgetting, that no one has a perfect life.
