    Perfection isn't perfect

    Farm raised Katie Brenner has arrived - she's living her dreams in London, having a paid job at a branding (advertising) agency and she's known as Cat. All is not as rosy as her social media posts report but that's not going to stop her, especially when she meets an amazing guy at the elevators at work. Katie's Dad and StepMum have a vision to convert her childhood home into Ansters Farm Country Retreat. With her branding skills and enthusiasm the results are so fast and so amazing that when they call Katie and suggest a sabbatical from the agency to allow Katie to come home and help run the place it's perfect timing! From the crowded tube (subway) to the fields of sheep, Cat/Katie is determined that no-one will see her 'not my perfect life'. Perfection isn't as wonderful as it is made out to be and Katie learns to stand up and make choices that make her happy. A lovely novel that flows well and keeps you turning pages when laughter offsets disappointments. I received a copy of this book from Random House through Net Galley in return for an honest review. 5/5

    Great Read

    This is classic Sophie Kinsella. I loved it. I love her stand alone titles more than the shopiholic series and this did not disappoint.

    Funny & Uplifting

    Katie ("Cat") Brenner is a country bumpkin trying to find herself in the big City, London. She has a decent job at Cooper Clemmow with the hopes of moving up in the company now that she has the foot in the door. Her boss, Demeter, has everything that Cat wants: great job, great house, great husband, and great kids. What is actual perfection and what is an illusion? I have read almost all of Sophie Kinsella's standalone books, with the only exception being Finding Audrey. I get excited for each new release because I know it is going to take me right to my happy place. The same applies for My (Not So) Perfect Life! I forced myself to slow down reading this book because I wanted to savor it. It was romantic, a bit silly at times, and yet there was a lot of character development among multiple characters. It gets deep yet some characters are shallow. There are misconceptions that get out of hand yet there is empathy. It is modern yet it comes back to the age-old question: is the grass always greener on the other side? I highly recommend this book, as well as Sophie Kinsella's other books, for anyone looking for a relatable and humorous light read. I would not recommend this book for any reader that is offended by foul language, bullying, or sexually suggestive scenarios. Please note: an electronic copy of this book was generously provided by the publisher via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

    Love this book!

    This is the perfect Sophie Kinsella book; romance, job disasters, struggles to make it, dreams for a better life and how to get there. Her characters are so genuine; I can easily identify with what they are going through and their struggles to cope with circumstances and relationships. Life is a complex dance with chance and perseverance and hope.
