When I was headed to the Dominican Republic for our trip courtesy of Wyndham Rewards and HARRY I wanted a few books to read on the beach; you know, because I totally thought that I’d have time to lounge around the pool and on the beach with three small children in tow whilst reading a book. Silly me, I know. I think I made it through the preface of one novel because water and small children equals never letting them leave your sight. I asked my mom who is an avid reader for some recommendations and one of her recommendations was Sophie Kinsella. My mom described Kinsella as a hilarious author whose stories are full of normal, everyday heroines that I surely would connect with. My mom will actually be making her debut here on First Time Mom soon with a review of Kinsella’s newest novel so keep an eye out on that. I wanted to tell you about a fun event happening in the Twin Cities that involves Ms. Kinsella.

About MY NOT SO PERFECT LIFE

Part love story, part workplace drama, this sharply observed novel is a witty critique of the false judgments we make in a social-media-obsessed world.  Jojo Moyes says with MY NOT SO PERFECT LIFE, “Sophie Kinsella keeps her finger on the cultural pulse, while leaving me giddy with laughter.  I loved it.”

Sophie Kinsella is celebrated for her vibrant, relatable characters and her great storytelling gifts displayed in her widely popular Shopaholic series. 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 how the grass is always greener with the right filter.
