Fairy Unicorn Wishes by Sophie Kinsella

Rating: 5 out of 5.

What I Loved:

Fairy Unicorn Wishes was filled with wonderful adventures that my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed. Ella is an adorable child that my daughter connected with and her mom is silly and fun and made the entire story excellent.

How I Felt:

I have long been a fan of Sophie Kinsella’s books. I find her writing to be fun and witty and have enjoyed every book she has written. I love that she now has a book series that is great to read to my children. I was so happy to see that Fairy Unicorn Wishes still held the charm that I love to find in Sophie’s books.

The Characters were excellent. Ella is sweet and silly and her mom is constantly getting into these magical problems that are so fun to read about.

The Writing is easy for a young reader. The chapters are broken up well, and the illustrations go perfectly with the book. The story is filled with fun adventures and problems to solve. The fantasy story-line of a fairy mom makes this a great book for young readers that love a fairy tale.

Overall, this was a fun book filled with great characters, wonderful writing, and an super fun story.

To Read or Not To Read:

Fairy Unicorn Wishes is a great read-along with a kindergarten to middle-elementary school child. For young readers that can read on their own, this book is broken into nice smaller chapters making this a great book for them.

Fairies, unicorns and magical wishes combine in this third book of the Fairy Mom and Me series from New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella!

Ella’s one wish is to become a fairy like her mom. She dreams of the day she will have her sparkly crown and Computwand. Ella even imagines what her first spell would be: a glittery unicorn of her very own.

But Ella knows that spells are often harder than they look, even with the special fairy apps available…and being a fairy in waiting is not all rainbows and butterflies.

Will Ella learn more magic to help her become a fairy someday? Or will she learn she doesn’t need to be a fairy yet for all her wishes to come true?

Sophie Kinsella has sold over 40 million copies of her books in more than 60 countries, and she has been translated into over 40 languages.

Sophie’s latest novel, Surprise Me, presents a humorous yet moving portrait of a marriage—its intricacies, comforts, and complications. Surprise Me reveals that hidden layers in a close relationship are often yet to be discovered.

Sophie Kinsella first hit the UK bestseller lists in September 2000 with her first novel in the Shopaholic series – The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic (also published as Confessions of a Shopaholic). The book’s heroine, Becky Bloomwood – a fun and feisty financial journalist who loves shopping but is hopeless with money – captured the hearts of readers worldwide.

Becky has since featured in seven further bestselling books, Shopaholic Abroad (also published as Shopaholic Takes Manhattan), Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Shopaholic & Sister, Shopaholic & Baby, Mini Shopaholic, Shopaholic to the Stars and Shopaholic to the Rescue. Becky Bloomwood came to the big screen in 2009 with the hit Disney movie Confessions of a Shopaholic, starring Isla Fisher and Hugh Dancy.

Sophie has also written seven standalone novels which have all been bestsellers in the UK, USA and other countries around the world: Can You Keep A Secret?, The Undomestic Goddess, Remember Me?, Twenties Girl, I’ve Got Your Number, Wedding Night, and My Not So Perfect Life, which was a Goodreads Choice Awards finalist for Best Fiction in 2017.

In 2014 she published a Young Adult novel Finding Audrey about a teenage girl with social anxiety and her madcap family, and in January 2018, Sophie published her first illustrated book for young readers about the charming adventures of a mother-daughter fairy duo, Mummy Fairy and Me (also published as Fairy Mom and Me).

Sophie wrote her first novel under her real name, Madeleine Wickham, at the tender age of 24, whilst she was working as a financial journalist. The Tennis Party was immediately hailed as a success by critics and the public alike and became a top ten bestseller. She went on to publish six more novels as Madeleine Wickham: A Desirable Residence, Swimming Pool Sunday, The Gatecrasher, The Wedding Girl, Cocktails for Three and Sleeping Arrangements.

Sophie was born in London. She studied music at New College, Oxford, but after a year switched to Politics, Philosophy and Economics. She now lives in London, UK, with her husband and family.

I was provided an advanced reader’s copy of this book for free. I am leaving my honest, unbiased review voluntarily.

The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

Rating: 5 out of 5.

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.

Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

Rating: 4 out of 5.

What I Loved: The silliness in this book was perfect. It was such a cute, light story that kept me reading long into the night.


How I Felt: I seriously just felt so happy reading this book! It had such a funny pairing between Lara and dear old Great-Aunt Sadie. Sophie Kinsella did an amazing job of playing the two characters off of one another. I laughed, a lot, reading this book. It really did make me feel light and happy!


To Read Or Not To Read: Did you know that Sophie Kinsella writes under a second name, Madeline Wickham? Sometimes authors do that to write in a different genre, but I truly feel that both writers have the same style. So, if you enjoy Sophie Kinsella (or Madeline Wickham), or easy, fun reads, this is perfect for you!


What’s This Book About Anyway?

Lara’s Great-Aunt Sadie has to come to visit her….except Great-Aunt Sadie has been dead a while, and now…she’s a ghost! Sadie is quite a feisty, stubborn lady and death did not change her. She tells Lara exactly what she should be doing with her life; eating, clothing, dancing, etc.


Sadie has one actual request though. She needs Lara to find a missing necklace that is very dear to her. If Lara can find it, Great-Aunt Sadie can Rest In Peace (and so can Lara!)

This book was hilarious and I loved every page, but it also had some nice tones about family and friendship and loyalty.
