“Can You Keep A Secret ?”

published 20/03/2008

Profunny , Romantic , Good storyline , Good character...

ContraToo short!

The other day I was in my local PDSA (vets for pets) shop searching for a bargain when I came across the books , which were all stacked neatly on a couple of dust-free shelves. As I quickly skimmed through the titles , my eyes were snatched by a lilac cover with a picture of a girl standing in a...

“No Secret - I Loved This!”

published 27/04/2011

ProEngaging, easy read

ContraOne minor plotline was a bit of an anti-climax

Sophie Kinsella might be best known for her Shopaholic creation, Becky Bloomswood, but personally I much prefer her standalone novels. 'Can you keep a secret?' is very much in the Shopaholic vein - pure easy reading chick lit, which is exactly what I need at this point in time. The principal...

“A fantastic light read!”

published 23/09/2010

ProEnjoyable, page turner

Contranot as good as her other books

I'm not a huge fan of chick lit, I don't like books which are very predictable and so similar to others so I didn't read any of Sophie Kinsella's books until recently as I assumed that they would be of this genre. Last Christmas, however, I was bought one of her books and so read it and I was...

What would you do if you were a nervous flyer and the plane you were on got very turbulent? Would you think you were going to die a horrible death and tell the person sitting next to you all of your deepest darkest secrets? I know I wouldn’t but Emma Corrigan main character in Sophie Kinsella's...

Can You Keep A Secret - Sophie Kinsella I must admit I am one of Sophie Kinsellas biggest fans and was absolutely engrossed when reading this amazing book, another great read from the brilliant author. Can You Keep A Secret is about a 25 Year Old girl, Emma Corrigan, a Marketing Assistant at...

“Can You Keep A Secret?”

published 27/12/2008

ProGood story, believeable characters, easy to read

ContraProbably not going to teach you anything new

For some reason, lately, I am quite enjoying girlie books. I normally borrow my books from my Dad but obviously my Dad doesn't read girlie books so my most recent read was borrowed from my friend. She has a while collection of books written by Sophie Kinsella and said that this one was her...

ProStupidly funny, great story, nice characters

ContraZero, Zilch, Nada

I have two friends called Emma. One has gigantic boobs and worked in the same resort as me last summer. The other works in marketing in London, and has normal sized breasticles. She’s also the main character in Kinsella’s latest novel. It’s strange, isn’t it, how you get...

“Secrets R Us”

published 04/07/2003

ProQuick, easy read, funny, girly front cover

Contraonly 364 pages!

This book’s a goodie. I was more than chuffed when my friend from work lent this to me. I’d planned on buying it anyway as I’m a big fan of Sophie Kinsella’s but even better was a freebie read! Sophie has written three other books, The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic, Shopaholic Abroad and...

What’s a girl to do? One minute you’re sipping champagne in business class on a plane, reading a Cosmo article on ’30 Things to Do Before You’re 30’, the next minute your plane hits turbulence and is plummeting out of the sky. If you were Emma Corrigan (the central character), you’d start...

ContraNone

After speeding through the past two Sophie Kinsella books I had the last one on the book shelf to make my way through. Sophie Kinsella is one of my favourite authors she always seems to write in a way that I find really entertaining and has me hooked like a gripping drama. This book is about Emma...

“A Bit of a Let Down”

published 03/05/2010

ProEntertaining

ContraNot as good as other works

Entertaining but not Captivating... While Can You Keep a Secret is an entertaining book, I wasn't overly impressed with it mainly because of the way in which it was a bit of a let down, especially compared to Kinsella's other books. As I said in my reviews of Remember Me and Twenties Girl, the...

ContraNot something you could read again and again

After reading several ops on Ciao about this book, I decided that the time had come for me to read it myself and see why so many rated it. I’d been warned that it was chick-lit, though to be honest, the write-ups on the whole made it out to be a good book, with a decent storyline. Chelmsford...

This is a fantastic book. There are so many great reviews about what the book is about, I'm not going to go too in depth about the plot and storyline, I'm just going to explain why I think this book is fantastic! The book is so true to every modern woman out there. We all have secrets, and as the...

I was recently looking through my current Mango catalogue from the book club and circled all books I was interested in. I know Sophie Kinsella as the very well known writer of the popular Shopaholic series which so far I haven't got round to reading. I saw the lovely lilac book cover, very eye...

Contranone unless you don't like chicklit

This was the first Sophie Kinsella book that I read a few years ago and it got me hooked on her books from then on. She is a brilliant chicklit author who keeps me entertained and hooked from the first couple of pages. Having gone through a difficult period in my life I wanted to read something...
