Book-Vent Advent Day Three

December 3rd 

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me.... Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. 

The Twenties Girl is like no other Sophie Kinsella novel let me tell you that straight off the bat. It tells the story of Lara who is the main character, she finds herself crying over her life, romance and well, basically everything - her life is not going how she planned it. 

Without going hugely into the story, mainly because it's a story worth reading and I really don't want to give too much away, Lara's great-aunt Sadie pops into the story in ghost form looking for a missing necklace. Lara's the only one that can see her so debates if she might be loosing her mind. Great-aunt Sadie decided to return looking like her twenty three year old self and all that being a flapper girl brings. 

There's a lot of laughs along the way as Sadie tells it as it is, honestly I want to be her friend! she's a hilarious or as some say 'amazeballs' She grabs Lara's life by the horns and shakes it up - Sadie's demands on Lara are infuriating of course but as a reader I can only imagine the cheekiness of Sadie and feel the empathy that she has for her great-niece. As much as she's a pain in the butt she's a caring pain in the butt and that's OK - isn't it? 

Along the way both ladies lives change but not in the traditional sense that you maybe thinking of right now. Sadie is a book form comic-act and Lara not so much, the two characters definitely bounce off each other in the right way so that neither grate on you. I know it's so frustrating when a character stands out for the wrong reasons or there doesn't seem to be chemistry at all. 

Fully recommended for comedy lovers or those just looking for an easy read to brighten up your day. 

You can purchase this over on Amazon here. It's currently only £3.85 including postage which is an amazing bargain in our opinion. 

Peace & Love
