Remember Me?

Lol, no seriously, do you guys even remember me? xP
To be quite honest I haven't read many books for 3 months...maybe 1...and I'm just finishing my second one. tehe...OOPS! Gosh when I see it written I haven't read anything :( I'll get right back on top of it though =)
For more reasons of why I wasnt reading for a while, click HERE.

So, 'Remember Me?' by Sophie Kinsella was one of the books that I read.

Lexi Smart has a good excuse to think of herself as "20-something." When the car crash sent her into a coma, she was 25. When she wakes up in the London hospital, she is 28, or so the nurses tell her. Lexi's amnesia has erased memories of significant additions to her life, including a high-paying job, a personal assistant, a curvy new body, a spectacular loft, and a gorgeous husband. As she's attempting to take stock of her recent acquisitions, she begins also to survey what she might have left behind. And then, as if things weren't complicated enough already, when she meets a new acquaintance, she discover something that she never thought possible.

I really like Sophie Kinsella's Books. I've read the whole Shopoholic series, and almost all of her single books :) If you've read her other books then you know that she is an amazing writer, and never disappoints - this book was no acception. I have fun reading this from the moment I cracked the book open. She has a nice balance between when to be funny and when not to be :)

I also want to say that this book was absolutly not predictable. Lets just say that I predicted the end, but I predicted it wrong. lol.
Theres not much more I can say about his book besides the fact that its amazing :) So you should ALL most DEFINETLY read this :))

Yours Truly,

Havent been here in a while. But bare with me and read my whole post...please =)

But I swear, I have good reasons...Really....sooooo.....
REASON ONE:
School started...I mean my school is seriously unbelievable with the work load that they give us...I've considered dropping out because there is JUST TOO MUCH! -- although that will never happen because I have to go to collage/university..so...=)) tehe.

REASON TWO:
If you guys have been to my site before, you will know that I have 'book-mood-swings'...like, for about 2 months or so...maybe 3. I just havent been in the mood for reading. But I'm slowing getting back into it...--speaking of which, I need a serious update of what the new books are, or what the new/good books have come out during these 3 months...lollol...

REASON THREE:
I am just down right a lazy person...like, I'm supposed to be doing house chores and homework right now...Because I'm on AUTUMN BREAKK :))
*victory dance*

And yeah, those would be all of my reasons...
But I swear I will be coming back more, as I'm reading more again...

(ooh and btw, if you read previous posts you'll see that I couldnt finish the book 'Rumors'...yeah about that, I still havent finished it.....;) oopsies.....xP)

Rating: 8.5/10

Molly and Charlie have fallen head over heels in love—even though they’ve never met Molly is a fashion-conscious city girl in L.A. Charlie is an earthy, mountain-biking dude from Boulder, Colorado. Each of them has big plans with their respective friends for the summer—until they discover that their parents decided to swap houses!Luckily there’s no amount of homesickness that a bit of snooping can’t cure.

Charlie and Molly begin crawling under beds and poking around in closets to find out a little more about each other—and they like what they find.Can Charlie and Molly’s long-distance romance survive jealousy, misunderstandings—and the thousand miles between them? [Review as of Amazon]

I really enjoyed this book. The main reason I wanted an ARC was because I just couldnt not wait until October to read this book. And I'm glad that I didnt wait =) The book turned out amazing. Even though it was Fraibergs's first novel, it didnt overlly come across that way.

Although the book was amazing, there were times when I thought that things happened to fast...if that makes sense. Like...one minute its happy and then the next paragraph its not. I felt this escepesically at the end. But...I cant say much more on that or else I would give the ending away...

I also felt that the book was quiet predictable...but dont let this negativity get you wrong. This book was very good! The characters were very likeable. Although, there was a girl, Molly's best friend Celeste, whom I didnt really like. But thats what I mean, you got a great insight as to who that person was, and I really loved that about the novel. Also, the plot was just amazing in general.

Note!! Come back reaaallly soon, because I will be posting an interview with Jordanna Fraiberg =) Also...I'm still having a hard time getting through rumors for some reason =( But I'm trying...I swear...I'm trying!!
