I borrowed this book, Twenties Girl by Sohpie Kinsella from Smallkucing’s Mamarazzi, and I couldn’t help but giggle like a school girl when I was reading this book in my bed.
My husband was really surprised, as it’s been quite some time since a book managed to make me laugh while reading them in bed. The last time I giggled in bed while reading was years ago, while I was reading not a novel, but comic books.
So… is this book good? Definitely. A light-hearted read, and I would recommend this to those who loves chic-lit.
This novel is about Lara. Lara has always had an overactive imagination. Now she wonders if she is losing her mind. Normal twenty-something girls just don’t get visited by ghosts. The spirit of Lara’s great aunt Sadie – in the form of a bold, demanding Charleston-dancing girl – has appeared to make one last request: Lara must track down a missing necklace Sadie simply can’t rest without.
Lara’s got enough problems of her own. Her start-up company is floundering, her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, and she’s just been dumped by the love of her life. But as Lara spends time with Sadie, life becomes more glamorous and their treasure hunt turns into something intriguing and romantic.
What I thought initially is just another normal chic-lit where there’s a bimbo of a protagonist trying hard to be someone in the world, Twenties Girl is different, because it’s not just a chic-lit, but a mystery. The mystery that revolves around Sadie’s necklace, and why it is so important to her til she couldn’t rest in piece until the necklace is found.
As Lara goes around looking for Sadie’s necklace, her life has been turned upside down, in a good way. She became more and more daring, bold, fun and also she sees things in a different perspective. Being with her Aunt Sadie’s ghost taught her a lot of things in life; which is to let go, and to accept new things in her life. By finding Sadie’s necklace, Lara also learn that sometimes, those who are successful in life and boastful of their successes, have a dark story behind of it.
Very good book, recommended for those who wants a light read. Watch the book trailer below if you’re too lazy to read my review:
There’s quite a few surprises in this novel. Rated, PG13. Safe read.:D (Somehow I wish there’s steamier scene… but, oh well…if I want that, I can always have a dose of my Mils Boon or Harlequin.)
