Remember me? by Sophie Kinsella

When twenty-eight-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she’s in for a big surprise. Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident—in a Mercedes no less—Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she’s about to find out just how much things have changed, Somehow Lexi went from a twenty-five-year-old working girl to a corporate big shot with a sleek new loft, a personal assistant, a carb-free diet, and a set of glamorous new friends. And who is this gorgeous husband—who also happens to be a multimillionaire? With her mind still stuck three years in reverse, Lexi greets this brave new world determined to be the person she…well, seems to be. That is, until an adorably disheveled architect drops the biggest bombshell of all. Suddenly Lexi is scrambling to catch her balance. Her new life, it turns out, comes complete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue. How on earth did all this happen? Will she ever remember? And what will happen when she does?
Every time I heard the name Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a Shopaholic always comes to mind, and I don't really like that book too much purchasing of stuff it's unreal and yeah ok also frustrating, how unfair that she gets to have a Birkin bag? Anyway, I've put off this book for far too long so after reading what seems like years about impossible worlds, magical systems and over the top fantasy, I decided to wing it back to chick lit. Glad I did. It's fast paced, quick read with lots quirky scenes. The metaphor behind piecing ones life together after a memory loss equivalent of 3 years sounds really awfully scary but then I saw that you can actually change the mistake that you have done in those years. Like a Time Machine. I thought this will turn out to be an overrated deal like ok, amnesia then towards the end of the story there'll be another accident that will subjecdt the protagonist in another bump in the head situation but nope it was exactly opposite. Every forgotten memory gets readers closer to Lexi. It has delicious prose on careers, ambitions and the dream life. Happy reading.
