The Good Times Are Killing Me

I'm a nerdy girl with too much time on her hands, and too many books on her to-read pile.

Can You Keep a Secret?

Can You Keep a Secret? - Sophie Kinsella I'm glad I wasn't anywhere public while reading this. I laughed sooo hard... but, for some reason, I don't want to read more Kinsella books. "Can You Keep a Secret? is fun while it lasts, it resonates with our fear of being exposed to our peers for who we really are, but then it ends and, well, it's easily forgotten. So why the 4 stars? Those represent the good moments it gave me, the laughs, the "OMG I would die if that happened to me" parts, and the realization that not every book has to be memorable to be good. It got the job done, and maybe when I find myself in a similar frame of mind (or, to say it in other words: when I get dumped again by another guy) I'll know that there is an author that will help me escape the tears with some funny book.
