Twenties Girl- Review

I just finished Sophie Kinsella’s new book Twenties Girl and boy was it a fun read! Nothing like a nice upbeat book to perk you up! And this one has everything: style, glamour and a ghost! Who could ask for more?  I think this would make a wonderful romantic comedy if done right! In fact I am about to watch Confessions of a Shopaholic tonight which I read a few years back. I love it when a great book can be brought to life but it is so bad when it gets ruined! That’s why I always read the book first!  Twenties Girl has some great characters and a really fast moving plot which grabs you from the very beginning.  Give it a try…it would be a great beach read or a fun travel pick for any last minute summer vacations! Check out the summary below to see if this one would be good for you!

” Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women don’t get visited by ghosts. Or do they?
When the spirit of Lara’s great-aunt Sadie–a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance–mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions. Her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, her start-up company is floundering, and she’s just been dumped by the “perfect” man.  Sadie, however, could care less.   Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadie’s necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different “twenties” girls learn some surprising truths from each other along the way. Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsella’s books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.”

  1. I read Twenties Girl last week and thought it was great🙂
    The first part lagged a bit, but half way through it picked up and kept going. And yes, it could (if done properly) make a very entertaining movie.
    Enjoy Confessions of a Shopaholic! It’s really cute and Isla Fisher is a great Becky.

    Read it too, and I loved it! It was SO much fun, more than I thought it would be! I was a little sad in the end, to leave Lara and Sadie. I’m pretty sure a couple years from now, I would re-read it.

  3. I love Kinsella’s books! I can’t wait to get my hands on this one.

    Oh, and if you love Kinsella, you’ll also love a new book called ‘Knickles and Dimes’. It has hilarious characters and a really great story. I’d recommend it!

    Anyway, thanks for the review : )
