Katie Brenner has the perfect life: a flat in London, a glamorous job, and a super-cool Instagram feed. Ok, so the real truth is that she rents a tiny room with no space for a wardrobe, has a hideous commute to a lowly admin job, and the life she shares on Instagram isn’t really hers. But one day her dreams are bound to come true, aren’t they?

Until her not-so perfect life comes crashing down when her mega-successful boss Demeter gives her the sack. All Katie’s hopes are shattered. She has to move home to Somerset, where she helps her dad with his new glamping business. Then Demeter and her family book in for a holiday, and Katie sees her chance. But should she get revenge on the woman who ruined her dreams? Or try to get her job back? Does Demeter – the woman with everything – have such an idyllic life herself? Maybe they have more in common than it seems. And what’s wrong with not-so-perfect, anyway?

My Takeaway 

Occasionally, when I am done with a super serious, and heavy book, I like to change it up and read something predictable that ends with “happily ever after.” My (Not So) Perfect Life is funny, enjoyable, and uncomplicated. The novel’s central message is although life is not perfect, it’s still pretty damn good. It’s up to us to own it and make the best of it. I appreciate Kinsella‘s consistent sense of humor and found myself laughing out loud throughout the novel. (I think this book would make a cute romantic comedy). If you enjoy funny, romantic chick lit, you will be pleased.

Thank you NetGalley and Penguin Random House for providing me with an ARC of the book in exchange for an honest review.
