Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella

Goodreads Summary: Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets: Secrets from her boyfriend: I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken. Secrets from her mother: I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur. Secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone in the world: I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is. Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger.…Until Emma comes face-to-face with Jack Harper, the company’s elusive CEO, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her…

My Views: Oh I adored this cute chick-lit book. It had lots of humor, fun and action in it. What a lovely book to curl up with for some laughs and good moments. It did remind me of “The Confessions of a shopaholic” and I think this would make into a good movie too. Is there a movie that I don’t know about? That happens to me a lot.

I’m sure you would love this book if you can ignore minor silliness and few exaggerations. Of course, that’s all a part of a chick-lit. I found myself giggling at quite a few places. I loved the character of Emma, it’s so colorful.

Though the book was a bit long (400 pages) and there were things I think the book could have done without, but never mind.

In all, curl up with this one on a cold, wintery, gloomy day and you will end up smiling by the end.

3.5/5 stars – Somewhere between ‘I liked it’ and ‘I really liked it’.

Often seen with a nose buried in a book, you might spy me at a library while 500 unread books adorn my shelf. At other times, I'm busy travelling solo, eating out or looking for my new escapades. You will always find me doing too much all at once.

  1. Sophie Kinsella is one of my FAVORITE writers… the Shopaholic series are so cute, but after like the 3rd one they get a little repetitive. How many times can one person blow tons of money and get in trouble?! But they’re still cute, nonetheless! I know I’ve read this one before and I think I really liked it, but I can’t remember anything about it! This calls for a re-read!


  2. Nice review 🙂
    Have you read any other Kinsella books? I have her Confessions of a Shopaholic but haven’t read it due to my friends saying it isn’t worth the read (strange considering they love these types of books) then I see others who love them,,,but I don’t often see as many “in between” people so it’s nice to see a review with pros and cons 🙂 I might give this one a try one day.


    1. I have only read “The Confessions of a Shopaholic”. I read it after I watched the movie though. I don’t remember how it was exactly but overall I was pleased with the book and I gave it 4 stars. So it should be good to go, I think. Have you seen the movie? If you liked it, you would like the book too. Just don’t expect much sanity or ‘real’ness. Sit back and just have fun. 😀
