This is awful.

I considered giving it two stars, because I can’t believe I DARE give a Sophie Kinsella book a one-star rating. But look, reading this book is absolutely pointless.

I’m not even enjoying it. I just stopped at page 216 because it’s not fun, it’s pretty sad and I feel so, so bad for Fixie (whose name I absolutely hate).

I mean, it is a Sophie Kinsella, so it’s a fast story and full of drama but this time the drama is cringe-worthy and the way Fixie’s family is treating her is HORRENDOUS.

I didn’t crack a smile one single time. And I needed more of Fixie and Seb. Who cares about that annoying and self-obsessed Hollywood jerk? Not me.

I’m done with this book. But I’m not done with Sophie Kinsella. Christmas Shopaholic is waiting for me! Still, dare I say that Sophie Kinsella may need to reconnect with her 2010 self because that woman’s humor was addictive? Yes, yes, I dare.
