    4.5 starsI ve read most of Sophie Kinsella s novels even some that she wrote under the name Madeleine Wickham and this one ranks right near the top It really seemed to showcase all the things I have previously loved in her books but yet also didn t feel something I have read countless times before The main character clicked with me and I enjoyed her interactions with her family and love interest.Fixie Farr has always tried to follow her late father s wishes with putting family first But why 4.5 starsI ve read most of Sophie Kinsella s novels even some that she wrote under the name Madeleine Wickham and this one ranks right near the top It really seemed to showcase all the things I have previously loved in her books but yet also didn t feel something I have read countless times before The main character clicked with me and I enjoyed her interactions with her family and love interest.Fixie Farr has always tried to follow her late father s wishes with putting family first But why should she always be the one pulling up the slack at the family ...

    All of the snow we ve been hit with recently has given me the opportunity to read like a mad woman, so I ve been flying through my NetGalley backlist in hopes of keeping up with my arc schedule I m not sure if reading The Lost Man by Jane Harper has put me in a slump, but I ve been finding it difficult to get into a new book and enjoy it from beginning to end Perhaps it s my growing sense of noticing the little things I was previously able to overlook, or maybe it s just the fact that I m All of the snow we ve been hit with recently has given me the opportunity to read like a mad woman, so I ve been flying through my NetGalley backlist in hopes of keeping up with my arc schedule I m not sure if reading The Lost Man by Jane Harper has put me in a slump, but I ve been finding it difficult to get into a new book and enjoy i...

    I ve read enough books by Sophie Kinsella to know that the main character, whose nickname is Fixie because she s always trying to fix other people and situations, will eventually have character growth In Fixie s case, she lets her family and a man she s been crushed out over since she was ten years old walk all over her Even though I had faith she d grow a backbone at some point, it was still hard to read all the ways she s refuses to see things clearly or speak up for herself One of the I ve read enough books by Sophie Kinsella to know that the main character, whose nickname is Fixie because she s always trying to fix other people and situations, will eventually have character growth In Fixie s case, she lets her family and a man she s been crushed out over since she was ten years old walk all over her Even though I had faith she d grow a backbone at some po...
