    Sophie Kinsella strikes again! Although most of her books deal with both the professional world and relationships, she has managed to make every story unique and immensely entertaining. Although I didn't enjoy this novel quite as much as I've Got Your Number, it still immediately sucke...

    4.25 This was the first Sophie Kinsella book I ever read and it will remain my favourite. My mum actually picked this up for me, because she liked the blurb on the back. She would never read this sort of book; she is into China Meavile, Dan Simmons and Stephen King. Not the sort of ...

    As you?d expect, the story is a sitcom come to life: a work-obsessed attorney loses her job in a dramatic way and then plunges alone into the countryside à la Jane Eyre, only to wind up being taken in as a housekeeper by some nouveau riche couple. The twist is. . . get ready. . . sh...

    At first, the concept was so ridiculous, I wasn't sure I would even like the book. But Sophie Kinsella skillfully made it seem plausible. The story of a stressed-out lawyer, stripped of her job and accidentally ending up in the unlikely position of a housekeeper for a nouveau riche cou...

    This story is about a 20-something, workaholic lawyer named Samantha. Sam leaves her job after making a huge mistake that costs her firm millions of dollars. She has put her whole life into this job, trying to become partner, and now it's over. She has a major meltdown, and ends up m...

    After reading several books by Kinsella, the only major complaint I have is that the endings are extremely unsatisfying. She builds up the character development and story so, so well, only to have it all end just shy of the perfect HEA. The first thought I usually have after finishing ...

    I keep reading Sophie Kinsella books because they're such a light, fast read and everything's so upbeat. But I'm also starting to get annoyed at how the main characters LIE SO MUCH. Most of their problems would be gone if they could just tell the truth. And the guys are always like "oh...

    I look along the endless line, squinting in the sunshine. I?m twenty-nine years old. I can go anywhere. Do anything. Be anyone I like. ?There?s no rush,? I say at last, and reach up to kiss him again. Excellent, funny, cute, sweet, romantic, fun...another great Kinsel...

    1.5 stars - Spoilers The worst Kinsella book I've read so far, it wasn't totally awful but it was pretty bad. The story was even more far-fetched and the main character even more daft than the other Kinsella heroines combined. The heroine (Samantha) was meant to be an Oxbridge educa...

    The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella is a standalone contemporary romance that is typical of the author's style, quite humorous and a bit over the top. Samantha Sweeting is a lawyer who knows nothing other than her job. Working every day of the week for seven years trying to make...

    I must confess... Sophie Kinsella replaced Sarah Dessen and Cecelia Ahern in my top authors. I love how she writes. I haven't tried the shopaholic series but I've read her three books following that series which are, Remember Me?, Can You Keep a Secret? and The Undomestic Goddess. All ...

    I read Kinsella's "Confessions of a Shopaholic" last year and enjoyed it very much. Since then, I haven't found the time to read her sequels, but recently, I picked up "The Undomestic Goddess" from the library and started reading. Much to my surprise, I found her main characters to be ...

    This book is one of my favorites. It's simply hilarious. Smart, witty, and romantic. The switch from sharp lawyer to house maid is genius. In the plot there's also a hidden agenda that our heroine has to uncover and that keeps the reader on edge. This is Kinsella at her best. Fu...

    I don't know, I guess I'm not much of a Sophie Kinsella fan. I've read a couple of her "Shopaholic" books as well as this one, and they just annoy me. Her characters are twits. Even in this one, where the main character is an intelligent, well-educated, about-to-become-partner Lawyer ....

    Actual rating 4.75 What a great read. I really loved this one! No love triangles or weird romances - Nathaniel is a new book boyfriend. Loved the message in this book as well. ...

    True rating: 3.5 stars So lately, every book I pick up feels too heavy and serious and I just want a light-hearted laugh. So Haley recommended I read this book, which is exactly what I need. Although I had a few problems with this book, I enjoyed it immensely. The undomestic Godd...

    I was looking for some fluff, something with a sense of humor. This wasn't it. The book blurb makes it sound like fun. The cutesy-cover makes it look like fun. The tone of the writing make it sound like fun. I found no fun. I listened to 75 minutes of the 6.5 hour CD version of the ...

    I'm being generous with my stars. I would really give this book more like 2 1/2 stars. I find the storyline hard to believe. I don't see a "high powered" lawyer taking a housekeeping job. One minute the character is a powerful well known lawyer, in the best law firm in the country,...

    ?My life has changed, and I'm changing with it.? Samantha Sweeting is a workaholic. She is one hell of an attorney. She works all the time. She never makes mistakes. She came from the family of attorneys and all of them are terrific except her brother who died from nervous br...

    I think "Undomestic Goddess" is my favorite of all Sophie Kinsella's books I've read so far. Although totally predictable, this book was a pleasure to read. The main reason I enjoyed this book so much is probably because I can totally relate to Samantha. She is a lawyer and workaho...

    This story is about a 20-something, workaholic lawyer named Samantha. Sam leaves her job after making a huge mistake that costs her firm millions of dollars. She has put her whole life into this job, trying to become partner, and now it's over. She has a major meltdown, and ends up m...

    After reading several books by Kinsella, the only major complaint I have is that the endings are extremely unsatisfying. She builds up the character development and story so, so well, only to have it all end just shy of the perfect HEA. The first thought I usually have after finishing ...

    I keep reading Sophie Kinsella books because they're such a light, fast read and everything's so upbeat. But I'm also starting to get annoyed at how the main characters LIE SO MUCH. Most of their problems would be gone if they could just tell the truth. And the guys are always like "oh...

    I look along the endless line, squinting in the sunshine. I?m twenty-nine years old. I can go anywhere. Do anything. Be anyone I like. ?There?s no rush,? I say at last, and reach up to kiss him again. Excellent, funny, cute, sweet, romantic, fun...another great Kinsel...

    1.5 stars - Spoilers The worst Kinsella book I've read so far, it wasn't totally awful but it was pretty bad. The story was even more far-fetched and the main character even more daft than the other Kinsella heroines combined. The heroine (Samantha) was meant to be an Oxbridge educa...

    The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella is a standalone contemporary romance that is typical of the author's style, quite humorous and a bit over the top. Samantha Sweeting is a lawyer who knows nothing other than her job. Working every day of the week for seven years trying to make...

    I must confess... Sophie Kinsella replaced Sarah Dessen and Cecelia Ahern in my top authors. I love how she writes. I haven't tried the shopaholic series but I've read her three books following that series which are, Remember Me?, Can You Keep a Secret? and The Undomestic Goddess. All ...

    I read Kinsella's "Confessions of a Shopaholic" last year and enjoyed it very much. Since then, I haven't found the time to read her sequels, but recently, I picked up "The Undomestic Goddess" from the library and started reading. Much to my surprise, I found her main characters to be ...

    This book is one of my favorites. It's simply hilarious. Smart, witty, and romantic. The switch from sharp lawyer to house maid is genius. In the plot there's also a hidden agenda that our heroine has to uncover and that keeps the reader on edge. This is Kinsella at her best. Fu...

    I don't know, I guess I'm not much of a Sophie Kinsella fan. I've read a couple of her "Shopaholic" books as well as this one, and they just annoy me. Her characters are twits. Even in this one, where the main character is an intelligent, well-educated, about-to-become-partner Lawyer ....

    Actual rating 4.75 What a great read. I really loved this one! No love triangles or weird romances - Nathaniel is a new book boyfriend. Loved the message in this book as well. ...

    True rating: 3.5 stars So lately, every book I pick up feels too heavy and serious and I just want a light-hearted laugh. So Haley recommended I read this book, which is exactly what I need. Although I had a few problems with this book, I enjoyed it immensely. The undomestic Godd...

    I was looking for some fluff, something with a sense of humor. This wasn't it. The book blurb makes it sound like fun. The cutesy-cover makes it look like fun. The tone of the writing make it sound like fun. I found no fun. I listened to 75 minutes of the 6.5 hour CD version of the ...

    Unlike Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series, Undomestic Goddess features a much less ditzy woman front and centre in this very light yet original book. Although a bit dated- written in 2006- with its Blackberry devices for texting, computers for email and cell phones for calls only, the...

    This was the first Sophie Kinsella book I was really into! The last few weren't bad, but the protagonists drove me nuts they were so annoying! Samantha had me pulling my hair out in the beginning, but I grew to like her pretty quickly! At first I was so frustrated about the whole lie...

    3.5 Stars :0) Not a laugh-out-loud type of funny novel for me, but this was surprisingly alot of fun... There were a couple plot points that were a bit out there for me but it didn't really bother me too much. Once the story started going and I got to know these cha...

    I'm being generous with my stars. I would really give this book more like 2 1/2 stars. I find the storyline hard to believe. I don't see a "high powered" lawyer taking a housekeeping job. One minute the character is a powerful well known lawyer, in the best law firm in the country,...

    ?My life has changed, and I'm changing with it.? Samantha Sweeting is a workaholic. She is one hell of an attorney. She works all the time. She never makes mistakes. She came from the family of attorneys and all of them are terrific except her brother who died from nervous br...

    Know what I hate? Snobs. Know what I hate even more? Book snobs. The ones with Anna Karenina under their arms on the streets and a quote by Oscar Wilde on their yearbook who know Shakespeare's sonnets by heart. Not that there's anything wrong with any of those, but there is when a sno...

    I honestly couldn't finish the audiobook. Couldn't care less about the characters and their story. I think this book is worse than Confessions of a Shopaholic. At least the latter managed to be funny sometimes. In all cases, the audiobook is NOT recommended. The narrator's voice doesn'...

    I think "Undomestic Goddess" is my favorite of all Sophie Kinsella's books I've read so far. Although totally predictable, this book was a pleasure to read. The main reason I enjoyed this book so much is probably because I can totally relate to Samantha. She is a lawyer and workaho...

    I don't know, I guess I'm not much of a Sophie Kinsella fan. I've read a couple of her "Shopaholic" books as well as this one, and they just annoy me. Her characters are twits. Even in this one, where the main character is an intelligent, well-educated, about-to-become-partner Lawyer ....

    Actual rating 4.75 What a great read. I really loved this one! No love triangles or weird romances - Nathaniel is a new book boyfriend. Loved the message in this book as well. ...

    True rating: 3.5 stars So lately, every book I pick up feels too heavy and serious and I just want a light-hearted laugh. So Haley recommended I read this book, which is exactly what I need. Although I had a few problems with this book, I enjoyed it immensely. The undomestic Godd...

    I was looking for some fluff, something with a sense of humor. This wasn't it. The book blurb makes it sound like fun. The cutesy-cover makes it look like fun. The tone of the writing make it sound like fun. I found no fun. I listened to 75 minutes of the 6.5 hour CD version of the ...

    Unlike Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series, Undomestic Goddess features a much less ditzy woman front and centre in this very light yet original book. Although a bit dated- written in 2006- with its Blackberry devices for texting, computers for email and cell phones for calls only, the...

    Sophie Kinsella strikes again! Although most of her books deal with both the professional world and relationships, she has managed to make every story unique and immensely entertaining. Although I didn't enjoy this novel quite as much as I've Got Your Number, it still immediately sucke...

    4.25 This was the first Sophie Kinsella book I ever read and it will remain my favourite. My mum actually picked this up for me, because she liked the blurb on the back. She would never read this sort of book; she is into China Meavile, Dan Simmons and Stephen King. Not the sort of ...

    As you?d expect, the story is a sitcom come to life: a work-obsessed attorney loses her job in a dramatic way and then plunges alone into the countryside à la Jane Eyre, only to wind up being taken in as a housekeeper by some nouveau riche couple. The twist is. . . get ready. . . sh...

    This story is about a 20-something, workaholic lawyer named Samantha. Sam leaves her job after making a huge mistake that costs her firm millions of dollars. She has put her whole life into this job, trying to become partner, and now it's over. She has a major meltdown, and ends up m...

    After reading several books by Kinsella, the only major complaint I have is that the endings are extremely unsatisfying. She builds up the character development and story so, so well, only to have it all end just shy of the perfect HEA. The first thought I usually have after finishing ...

    I keep reading Sophie Kinsella books because they're such a light, fast read and everything's so upbeat. But I'm also starting to get annoyed at how the main characters LIE SO MUCH. Most of their problems would be gone if they could just tell the truth. And the guys are always like "oh...

    I look along the endless line, squinting in the sunshine. I?m twenty-nine years old. I can go anywhere. Do anything. Be anyone I like. ?There?s no rush,? I say at last, and reach up to kiss him again. Excellent, funny, cute, sweet, romantic, fun...another great Kinsel...

    1.5 stars - Spoilers The worst Kinsella book I've read so far, it wasn't totally awful but it was pretty bad. The story was even more far-fetched and the main character even more daft than the other Kinsella heroines combined. The heroine (Samantha) was meant to be an Oxbridge educa...

    I must confess... Sophie Kinsella replaced Sarah Dessen and Cecelia Ahern in my top authors. I love how she writes. I haven't tried the shopaholic series but I've read her three books following that series which are, Remember Me?, Can You Keep a Secret? and The Undomestic Goddess. All ...

    I'm being generous with my stars. I would really give this book more like 2 1/2 stars. I find the storyline hard to believe. I don't see a "high powered" lawyer taking a housekeeping job. One minute the character is a powerful well known lawyer, in the best law firm in the country,...

    This book is one of my favorites. It's simply hilarious. Smart, witty, and romantic. The switch from sharp lawyer to house maid is genius. In the plot there's also a hidden agenda that our heroine has to uncover and that keeps the reader on edge. This is Kinsella at her best. Fu...

    I don't know, I guess I'm not much of a Sophie Kinsella fan. I've read a couple of her "Shopaholic" books as well as this one, and they just annoy me. Her characters are twits. Even in this one, where the main character is an intelligent, well-educated, about-to-become-partner Lawyer ....

    Actual rating 4.75 What a great read. I really loved this one! No love triangles or weird romances - Nathaniel is a new book boyfriend. Loved the message in this book as well. ...

    True rating: 3.5 stars So lately, every book I pick up feels too heavy and serious and I just want a light-hearted laugh. So Haley recommended I read this book, which is exactly what I need. Although I had a few problems with this book, I enjoyed it immensely. The undomestic Godd...

    I was looking for some fluff, something with a sense of humor. This wasn't it. The book blurb makes it sound like fun. The cutesy-cover makes it look like fun. The tone of the writing make it sound like fun. I found no fun. I listened to 75 minutes of the 6.5 hour CD version of the ...

    Unlike Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series, Undomestic Goddess features a much less ditzy woman front and centre in this very light yet original book. Although a bit dated- written in 2006- with its Blackberry devices for texting, computers for email and cell phones for calls only, the...

    This was the first Sophie Kinsella book I was really into! The last few weren't bad, but the protagonists drove me nuts they were so annoying! Samantha had me pulling my hair out in the beginning, but I grew to like her pretty quickly! At first I was so frustrated about the whole lie...

    3.5 Stars :0) Not a laugh-out-loud type of funny novel for me, but this was surprisingly alot of fun... There were a couple plot points that were a bit out there for me but it didn't really bother me too much. Once the story started going and I got to know these cha...

    I'm being generous with my stars. I would really give this book more like 2 1/2 stars. I find the storyline hard to believe. I don't see a "high powered" lawyer taking a housekeeping job. One minute the character is a powerful well known lawyer, in the best law firm in the country,...

    ?My life has changed, and I'm changing with it.? Samantha Sweeting is a workaholic. She is one hell of an attorney. She works all the time. She never makes mistakes. She came from the family of attorneys and all of them are terrific except her brother who died from nervous br...

    Know what I hate? Snobs. Know what I hate even more? Book snobs. The ones with Anna Karenina under their arms on the streets and a quote by Oscar Wilde on their yearbook who know Shakespeare's sonnets by heart. Not that there's anything wrong with any of those, but there is when a sno...

    4.25 This was the first Sophie Kinsella book I ever read and it will remain my favourite. My mum actually picked this up for me, because she liked the blurb on the back. She would never read this sort of book; she is into China Meavile, Dan Simmons and Stephen King. Not the sort of ...

    As you?d expect, the story is a sitcom come to life: a work-obsessed attorney loses her job in a dramatic way and then plunges alone into the countryside à la Jane Eyre, only to wind up being taken in as a housekeeper by some nouveau riche couple. The twist is. . . get ready. . . sh...

    This story is about a 20-something, workaholic lawyer named Samantha. Sam leaves her job after making a huge mistake that costs her firm millions of dollars. She has put her whole life into this job, trying to become partner, and now it's over. She has a major meltdown, and ends up m...

    After reading several books by Kinsella, the only major complaint I have is that the endings are extremely unsatisfying. She builds up the character development and story so, so well, only to have it all end just shy of the perfect HEA. The first thought I usually have after finishing ...

    I keep reading Sophie Kinsella books because they're such a light, fast read and everything's so upbeat. But I'm also starting to get annoyed at how the main characters LIE SO MUCH. Most of their problems would be gone if they could just tell the truth. And the guys are always like "oh...

    I look along the endless line, squinting in the sunshine. I?m twenty-nine years old. I can go anywhere. Do anything. Be anyone I like. ?There?s no rush,? I say at last, and reach up to kiss him again. Excellent, funny, cute, sweet, romantic, fun...another great Kinsel...

    The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella is a standalone contemporary romance that is typical of the author's style, quite humorous and a bit over the top. Samantha Sweeting is a lawyer who knows nothing other than her job. Working every day of the week for seven years trying to make...

    I must confess... Sophie Kinsella replaced Sarah Dessen and Cecelia Ahern in my top authors. I love how she writes. I haven't tried the shopaholic series but I've read her three books following that series which are, Remember Me?, Can You Keep a Secret? and The Undomestic Goddess. All ...

    I read Kinsella's "Confessions of a Shopaholic" last year and enjoyed it very much. Since then, I haven't found the time to read her sequels, but recently, I picked up "The Undomestic Goddess" from the library and started reading. Much to my surprise, I found her main characters to be ...

    This book is one of my favorites. It's simply hilarious. Smart, witty, and romantic. The switch from sharp lawyer to house maid is genius. In the plot there's also a hidden agenda that our heroine has to uncover and that keeps the reader on edge. This is Kinsella at her best. Fu...

    I don't know, I guess I'm not much of a Sophie Kinsella fan. I've read a couple of her "Shopaholic" books as well as this one, and they just annoy me. Her characters are twits. Even in this one, where the main character is an intelligent, well-educated, about-to-become-partner Lawyer ....

    Actual rating 4.75 What a great read. I really loved this one! No love triangles or weird romances - Nathaniel is a new book boyfriend. Loved the message in this book as well. ...

    True rating: 3.5 stars So lately, every book I pick up feels too heavy and serious and I just want a light-hearted laugh. So Haley recommended I read this book, which is exactly what I need. Although I had a few problems with this book, I enjoyed it immensely. The undomestic Godd...

    I was looking for some fluff, something with a sense of humor. This wasn't it. The book blurb makes it sound like fun. The cutesy-cover makes it look like fun. The tone of the writing make it sound like fun. I found no fun. I listened to 75 minutes of the 6.5 hour CD version of the ...

    Unlike Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series, Undomestic Goddess features a much less ditzy woman front and centre in this very light yet original book. Although a bit dated- written in 2006- with its Blackberry devices for texting, computers for email and cell phones for calls only, the...

    This was the first Sophie Kinsella book I was really into! The last few weren't bad, but the protagonists drove me nuts they were so annoying! Samantha had me pulling my hair out in the beginning, but I grew to like her pretty quickly! At first I was so frustrated about the whole lie...

    3.5 Stars :0) Not a laugh-out-loud type of funny novel for me, but this was surprisingly alot of fun... There were a couple plot points that were a bit out there for me but it didn't really bother me too much. Once the story started going and I got to know these cha...

    I'm being generous with my stars. I would really give this book more like 2 1/2 stars. I find the storyline hard to believe. I don't see a "high powered" lawyer taking a housekeeping job. One minute the character is a powerful well known lawyer, in the best law firm in the country,...

    ?My life has changed, and I'm changing with it.? Samantha Sweeting is a workaholic. She is one hell of an attorney. She works all the time. She never makes mistakes. She came from the family of attorneys and all of them are terrific except her brother who died from nervous br...
