While I’ve never really been a huge fan of fictional novels, preferring reference, particularily parenting books in the past little while, I discovered some fun novels this summer that I absolutley adored.

I was on limited activity for much of the summer, due to the threat of preterm labour, and so I picked up “Confessions of a Shopaholic” by Sophie Kinsella after hearing much about this novel from friends. Much to my delight, this book was fun, fluffy and a quick read…so much so that I whipped through the next four in the series within a matter of weeks. I also read her other two novels “The Undomestic Goddess” and “Can You Keep a Secret.” Both were enjoyable as well.

I also recently learned that Sophie Kinsella also writes under her other name Madeline Wickham. I think that may actually be her real name, and Kinsella is her pen name, although I am not entirely sure.

While I wouldn’t liken these novels to any great fictional literary masterpiece, they were fun, and a great “snuggle up in bed” type read!
