Full five stars with hearts and kisses to Sophie Kinsella for coming up with a new fantastic novel. This and Can You Keep A Secret? are probably my favorite Kinsella novels. The giddiness I feel is superific. The smile on my face is like the Cheshire cat from alice in wonderland. Just like any other novel from the author, it has a simple but hilariously realistic plot, and a quirky lovable heroine,Poppy. I mean who gets into so much trouble just by losing an engagement ring? Well I’m not just talking about some it’s-no-big-deal-we-can-replace-it-ring, it’s the bloody family heirloom of her future husband! So how will she explain it to her fiancé? Or better yet to her in-laws who clearly do not approve of the marriage. But what you’re all probably wondering is how Sam fits into the picture… Hmm don’t want to spoil anything, it’s for you to find out and for me to….*insert widest grin*…

Anyway I recommend this to all Sophie Kinsella fans out there. I laughed, cried( well almost), swooned and I bet you’d also feel the same way. You’ll love it especially the ending, it’s sweet and priceless! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a sequel!! Puh lease!!.. I want more of Sam and Poppy!

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer Smith

Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?”

Because I know I didn’t!

Hadley is a bridesmaid to the wedding she’s been dreading for so long, the wedding of her father and a British woman she barely even knows and is a complete stranger to her. But by some twist of fate, she misses her scheduled flight to London by four minutes. Lucky for her because she meets a handsome and yes, a swoon-worthy guy named Oliver…

The plot is one of those that happens within a 24-hour time frame with bits of flashbacks, but despite the story’s simplicity and brevity, it still captured my interest. Part of that is because of my fascination for Oliver. I just love that he’s so sweet, nice, and that British accent added fuel to my interest. I gotten so curious about his personality that I figured there’s something he’s not telling. Maybe I was wee bit disapponted because he’s not included in some parts of the story. But i know it gives credit to the other part of the story, Hadley’s relationship with her AWOL father. I know how bad she feels when her father left her and her mother. I understand her sort of hatred to his new wife, Charlotte. But just like what Hadley feels, I was so relieved in the end. That Charlotte is not one of those evil stepmothers from fairytales personified, and that she finally understands and forgives her father. And I just love how Oliver played a big part on that.

The ending went great although I’m just very curious how the title fits into all of this? I mean the intriguing title is what made me want to read this in the first place. It’s not enough for it to be mentioned once in an out of the blue kind of way but it has to be reflected in the plot. Anyway, even though i was surprised at how brief this novel turned out, still, I enjoyed reading this, it has enough romance and drama that will leave you wanting more.

Anna and the French Kiss… <3

I just finished Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and I’m already itching to write a review!! Because reading it was a wonderfully satisfying experience!! While it’s an easy read and has a simple plot, I can’t help but admire the author for she has the power to leave the readers enthralled and breathless!!! I did read lola and the boy next door before reading this one, so i’m glad to finally discover the story behind Anna and Etienne. The fact that its romance takes place in Paree! where love is always in the air ,makes the novel’s atmosphere compelling, stunning, and perfect! Also, the characters are so lovable. Anna Oliphant is interesting, funny, and not annoying like some chick-lit heroine i know. Let’s talk about Etienne St. Clair, or as I would like to call him- the literary embodiment of perfection! He’s nice, popular, handsome, and of course the English accent! ( Bollocks! HA!) I loved loved loved it! The character are great as well esp. Meredith, Ramshi, Josh and Bridgitt.I also liked that they’re going to school, having classes, detention, and staying at dorms, everything feels so light, familiar, and high school drama-ish. Although I’m not a French Savvy like Anna, or maybe even worse, I realized it doesn’t matter. And because of the irresistible story, I loved it anyway. So I toured Paris with the same delight and fascination as Anna. Everything about this book is BEAUTIFUL! Stephanie Perkins has only released two books and I’m already considering her as one of my favorite authors. I’m so glad stumbled upon this beautifully sweet and entertaining novel. I would recommend this to all romantic souls out there. I now believe that it’s possible for home to be a person and not be a place…Etienne St. Claire made me see that…
