Book Review | Love Your Life | By Sophie Kinsella
Women’s Fiction | Romance
Narrative and Plot
Before we begin, even if I have mentioned this before, Sophie Kinsella is one of my all time favorite authors. She is the one who got me into reading chic-lits. It is a possibility that the affection for the body of her work might reflect in my reviews.
Even so, there is no denying that Love You Life is a cutesy, escapist love story that most of us need this year. It takes you through 400 pages of absolute fun and charm which is the perfect escape from reality. Because, lets face it – “Real is hard”. The story is told from Ava/Aria’s perspective. She is an aspiring writer and if you have read my bio you know it is super relatable to me. Ava is your typical Sophie Kinsella heroine but still, she is refreshing and fun to read.
The plot has many ups and downs throughout. It is whimsical one moment and crashes to reality at the other. I guess, life is often like that if you look at it objectively. It was cheesy in a good fun way. Except for a bit of drama in the end, which I am not sure where to place.
Characters and Conflicts
Ava/Aria and Dutch are just adorable characters with their own complexities. A lot of the things feel wishy-washy but the book comes round the circle and acknowledges it later on. The supporting cast is vibrant and blend into the story perfectly. There isn’t a single boring character in the story. They complemented the main characters throughout the story, sometimes even calling out their flaws.
Considering the last two Sophie Kinsella books, I was keeping my expectations low. But this one turned out to be sweet. It is not life changing but it had me captivated with the witty charm of the main character Ava.
The book has a holiday fairy tale romance but it shows what happens after the happily ever after.
If you’re looking for a whirlwind romance with quirky characters, Love your Life is a must read. If you’re a devoted citizen in the Sophieland, this book is your VIP invitation to the prime annual event in the country. Enjoy your stay.
