Just a woman that has many books to read and many books to be bought and just to have books. Oh the books that have yet to be read by me!
What's up peeps and how are ya?! I hope you all are doing awesome and enjoying the last bit of summer! I am well to be honest a bit annoyed at the moment, because this is my second attempt at writing this review. I lost my first one and dummy me forgot to save it! YAY!!! SHEMURR! But, I'll get over it in a bit...not really no! I had it sound so good and then, my computer decided to be an itch and erase everything! I am going to go "camping" this weekend and by camping I mean be in a camper...no tents lol! I'm looking forward to doing that! Anywhoozles, today I have a review yay!!! It is "Twenties Girl" by Sophie Kinsella! Let's jump in shall we!
The story focuses on a woman name Lara, whom has a lot to deal with. Her best friend/business partner ran off to GOA and so Lara is stuck running the business alone, but with some help from her secretary. On top of that her "perfect" boyfriend dumped her. And, to top even that. She sees the 23 year old version of her dead great aunt Sadie, whom seems to be in 1920's wear. Life is just going peachy for her. Sadie stayed behind for a reason, she needs help finding her dragonfly necklace! And, Lara is the only one who can see her and help her out. Together these two polar opposites will have to set out and find Sadie''s necklace and Lara can have her peace. But, with a price, both women, have to help each other out with some crazy requests and they end up discovering a lot about each other.
I will be honest, at the beginning, I was really annoyed at Lara because she so badly wanted to get back with her ex. I wanted to go up to her, shake her, and say "are ya dumb?!" a few times. I did feel bad for her because she had to run the business herself and not having much experience with what she signed up for. Sadie, is basically my favorite character and although there were times she did annoying me. I couldn't help but like her; she's just so funny and witty. Also, she seems to know what she is talking about when it comes to certain things. There are other characters as well that seem to make this book even more entertaining to read. There is Lara's parents and sister: Her mom is a major worrier, her dad just want his daughter to be doing well, her older sister is a know it all. Let's not forget her Uncle and his family! Her Uncle is a shameful rich know it all, his wife...well I don't really know, her cousin...spoiled as ever. Then, there is the new possible love interest name Ed, who seems to be sweet, charming, and serious.
All in all, I really did enjoy this book! I liked how Sophie added really amazing details about the 1920's and building the dynamic between Lara and Sadie. The two did learn a lot about each other, and in the end Sadie learned a lot about what really happened in the past!
Well, that's all I got for you all! I hope you awesome nerds are enjoying your reads and the last bit of summer. I will be back next week with a new post. Until then!
