The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

My Thoughts:

What I loved: I happen to be a pretty Undomestic Goddess myself, so this book really resonated with me. A character that works hard and finds herself in a situation where she needs to keep house for someone. I would be pretty screwed. I loved reading about this character going through that situation.


How I Felt: This was such a light-hearted, easy read full of comedic situations and a little love. It made me smile so much, and felt so good to read.


To Read or Not To Read: I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys easy, fun books. Fans of Sophie Kinsella (or Madeleine Wickham) won’t be disappointed either!


Quoted:

“There’s no such thing as ruining your life. Life’s a pretty resilient thing, it turns out.”
― Sophie Kinsella, The Undomestic Goddess


What’s This Book About Anyway?

Samantha Sweeting is an attorney at a law firm hoping to make partner. She spends all of her time focused on work, trying to attain that *partner* status. She makes a mistake at works, and loses it a bit. She leaves work and jumps on a train to anywhere. One arriving to the middle of nowhere, she walks up to a house to ask for directions, and they think she is there for the housekeeper interview. She nails the interview and ends up hired. For a job as a housekeeper. She can’t cook, clean, sew, or do anything that resembles taking care of a household. The adjustment and learning period for her are full of hilarious situations and a little romance, but we do find that she begins to adapt. This story is a great adventure into trying something completely different and finding who you really are.
