Fun book recommendation of the day
My Not So Perfect Life: A Novel written by Sophie Kinsella is a part love story, part workplace drama. It is a witty critique of the false judgments we make in a social media obsessed world.
The main character of the book is Katie Brenner. Everywhere Katie looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, and lives with her perfect family in a luxurious townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie’s own life, on the other hand, is a daily struggle. From her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she’s trying to navigate. Katie takes refuge in not quite true! Instagram posts, as she is desperate to make her dad proud. Then, just as things start to get better for her, the worst happens and Demeter fires Katie. Katie has no other choice than to retreat to her family’s farm where she sets up a vacation business. And one day, her former boss, Demeter unexpectedly turns up as a guest and secrets are spilled!
