Giveaway: Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella

Remember Me? is the third of Sophie Kinsella's stand alone novels, and just as good as the other two that I have read so far!

Lexi Smart is a twenty-something who has job at a carpet and flooring company along with her three closest friends, is dating Loser Dave, likes to go out, and doesn't drive. She's just a regular girl who isn't perfect, at least until she wakes up in the hospital after a car wreck, remembering nothing of the last three years. Which includes how she managed to become completely fit with perfect teeth and the kind of accessories she might have only dreamed of in the past. Her husband (when did she get married?) also seems to be perfect, as does her new home (OMG it has a remote for EVERYTHING), and she finds out that she is no longer just a clerk in the flooring department but the director. The only problem is, she can't remember how any of it happened!

What follows is the humorous and painful (in more ways than one) story of how Lexi tries to pick up in her life where she left off, only apparently the new Lexi doesn't do anything the way the old Lexi of three years past would have done. She quickly finds out that everything is not as perfect as it appears, but can she trust what she's being told? And how do you keep secrets that you don't remember having?

My favorite two things I think are the marriage manual and the sunflowers, and that's all I'm going to say on that!

I highly recommend this one, in fact I stayed up late to finish it and was even a little teary at the end, but in a good way. I also loved Can You Keep a Secret and Undomestic Goddess. I haven't started the Shopaholic series yet, but I'm sure I'll love it if my feelings on these are any indication! For more information on Sophie Kinsella, please visit her website HERE.

And now for the giveaway! I am ready to pass along my used and bookcrossing labeled copy of Remember Me? to make a new friend! While I would love it if you made a journal entry at Bookcrossing on the book, which you can do anonymously if you decide Bookcrossing is not for you, the book is yours to do with as you wish. To enter, comment on this post and tell me what your favorite flower is. No flower, no entry! I will choose a winner on February 13th!

  17. You have done a very good job of writing a review that makes this book sound well worth reading. So I would love to read it, too.
    My favourite flower is "forget-me-not", (Myosotis sylvatica var. alpestris. Borage Family), because it is so tiny and so perfect, and because I love the poem that I learnt as a child and still remember:

    FORGET-ME-NOT

    When to the flowers
    so beautiful the Father gave a name,
    Back came a little blue-eyed one
    (All timidly it came);
    And standing at its Father's feet
    and gazing in His face,
    It said, in low and trembling tone
    and with a modest grace,
    "Dear God, the name Thou gavest me,
    Alas I have forgot!"
    Kindly the Father looked him down
    and said: "Forget-me-not."
