    One thought on “Surprise Me”

    1. Love is finding one person infinitely fascinating And so not an achievement, my dear Rather, a privilege.Hi, long time Sophie Kinsella Madeleine Wickam fan here I ve been reading her books for close to a decade now they are just the right amounts of tender cheese and that s a good thing so don t knock it to insert between my gritty crime novels and psychological thrillers I know many readers hate on the light and fluffy crowd, but I say why can t we read something simply for all the feels There [...]

    2. Entertaining, but not my favorite Sophie Kinsella I really like the premise of Surprise Me rather than the typical Kinsella premise of a single girl trying to get her life together and in doing so ultimately finds love, we have a married couple worried that their marriage has gone stale While the premise was fun, Surprise Me didn t quite have the magic of some of Kinsella s other books.After 10 years of marriage, Sylvie and Dan learn that they could potentially be married for another 68 years Wo [...]

    3. 4.5 laugh out loud stars .5Sophie Kinsella is one of my absolute favorite authors i ve read every book in the Shopaholic Series and absolutely adored Becky throughout what I love so much about her books are her fabulous female MC s and Sylvie was no exception strong, relatable, fun, self deprecating, and a little out of touch with reality i ve read so many twisty thrillers as of late and this was just the perfect pallet cleanser After Sylvie and Dan are told by their doctor that they will probab [...]

    4. This is a well done novel that starts off with a light, chick lit tone Sometimes you just need a book that has a humorous take on life and love After Dan and Sylvie, who have been together for ten years since they were twenty two, are told by their doctor they can each live to be one hundred, they have mutual breakdowns thinking about how they will possibly fill that much time together Already, they can finish each other s sentences and they seem to be able to read each other s minds.So, to keep [...]

    5. 4 silly, but surprisingly serious, stars to Surprise Me Sometimes I think I subsisted on Sophie Kinsella books in my 20s I looked forward to a Becky Shopaholic book like Christmas It s hard for me to believe I used to be quite the shopper then I also have fond memories of reading Kinsella books at the beach or on vacation I read The Undomestic Goddess while cruising past Sardinia Her books are perfect for vacations because they are easy to pick up and put down, and well, they are just plain enga [...]

    6. 4 Surprisingly Delightful Stars SOPHIE KINSELLA has always been one of my favourite go to authors, so I was pretty excited when I was approved to read her latest novel, SURPRISE ME I have enjoyed all of her books and to me they are such a treat to read inbetween reading so many thrillers I like to be able to just relax and enjoy the humour within the storyline SURPRISE ME definitely surprised me and I kind of liked the idea of Project Surprise Me too except for one of the surprises that Dan gave [...]

    7. Well this is a surprising book Bad pun very much intended.I feel like if this is your first ever Sophie Kinsella read, you should pick another one of her stories I would point you towards her Confessions of a Shopaholic series first so you become acquainted with her humour and style.Because this book is crazy even to fans of Sophie Kinsella, so I can t begin to imagine what people who know nothing about this author will think The concept isn t, however, crazy at all It s actually smart Sylvie an [...]

    8. Surprise Me is a standalone novel written by the fabulous Sophie Kinsella As I began this book, I noticed a few separate plotlines that didn t seem to blend together very well at all and I had the initial feeling that Ms Kinsella didn t quite know where she wanted to go with the overall story I found it distracting and a bit confusing to be honest, but please rest assured that all these pieces fit together flawlessly later on It does take a while but the end result is a lovely message about loya [...]

    9. 3.5This is what I call my cupcake diversion read I needed something light and humorous to entertain me and this one delivered I loved the whole concept of spicing up a marriage with some surprises Sylvie and Dan have adorable twin girls and are about to celebrate ten years together They have a joyful marriage, but Dan has had some issues with Sylvie s father.They find out that they could potentially have 68 blissful years together They are both in excellent health and should expect long lives W [...]

    10. I always enjoy reading Sophie Kinsella books and was delighted to receive an advanced copy of Surprise Me I really enjoyed this book about marriage, trust and family I liked the characters especially Sylvie and her twin daughters There were quite a few laugh out loud moments A feel good book that will make you smile I would like to thank NetGalley and Random House Publishing for my e copy in exchange for an honest review.

    11. Last year I read another book by Sophie Kinsella My Not So Perfect Life and was thrilled to find the perfect palate cleanser This year s offering was also a palate cleanser but this one ended up being just a bit too fluffy and disjointed for me There were things I liked, but it I didn t take to the protagonist in the same way I have with some of Kinsella s other books.Sylvie is happily married to Dan They have 5 year old twin girls And everything seems perfect when both Dan and Sylvie are told b [...]

    12. I was lost in the flowery, bushy and blooming with color lush Coulee with five of my Traveling Sisters We all settled in at different spots and times in the juicy, delicious berry bushes in the lush coulee We were surrounded by color, charm, and quirkiness with this story and these characters and we gobbled up this story as fast as we could At times the seriousness got a little prickly for us in the thorny bushes with our likable and loved characters Like Norma, I am a big fan of Sophie Kinsella [...]

    13. Warm, affecting, and extremely entertaining Surprise Me is a lighthearted journey into the lives of married couple Sylvie and Dan who have it all, beautiful girls, successful careers, and a rock solid marriage until the suggestion of another 68 years of marriage sends them into a tailspin that makes them question their goals, dreams, and each other.The writing is smooth and effortless The characters are quirky, comical, genuine, and lovable And the plot is an engaging, moving tale bursting with [...]

    14. 3.5 stars My advice when you pick this book up is to view it as you would a rom com movie Turn off your inner critic and just have fun with it.I confess I had a slight problem with the premise a young couple panics when their doctor tells them they will likely live to be over 100, which would mean another 68 years together If you re happily married who wouldn t be delighted at that news True story As I m writing this review a news reporter is on TV interviewing a couple who have been married for [...]

    15. 4 humorous but serious starsI must admit this was my first Sophie Kinsella book and I am so very glad to have stumbled upon this little gem of a book I so enjoyed the hilarity of the first half of the book and having a British son in law, I could just see him involved in some of these escapes The second half of the story is when things got serious It seemed that as much as Sylvie and Dan thought they knew one another both inside and out, there were many surprises in store for them as they have f [...]

    16. Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella is a nice little bit of humorous chick lit that is expected to come from this author The book also had a rather interesting idea behind the story when a long time married couple goes for their check up and passes with flying colors with the doctor explaining just how long a life they should have together.Sylvie and Dan are just hitting their ten year anniversary from the time that they first met when they get the news they just may have sixty eight years of marria [...]

    17. Ehh I think this plot just wasn t a good fit for me personally It s hard to sympathize with people who are so dang healthy that they can assume they re just guaranteed another 68 years of life to wonder WHAT WILL THEY DO How will they not be bored Maybe they can speak Italian for a decade Go to Ecuador Oh my goodness All of this is like the opposite of a problem Most of the plot was definitely rich white people problems, but the main character s narration itself actually didn t annoy me She was [...]

    18. DNF 25%The only thing that came as a surprise was this DNF.Honestly, I only read as much as I did because of my love of Kinsella You know those stories that start off fairly mediocre and you just keep thinking in this case, HOPING that it ll get better It started off mildly intriguing life is perfect for this couple, they have two beautiful children, good jobs, a happy life, and they even complete one another s sentences groan The two go to the doctor to get physicals at which point the doctor i [...]

    19. 4 Surprised stars It is true that I love Sophie Kinsella s books, I have read almost all of them.Even though It was a long time since I read a book by her,you can t imagine how excited I was to start this one.I was hooked from the beginning and I couldn t put it down Surprise me.This is a story about a Sylvie and Dan who are married and have twin girls.Their marriage is really great until the moment they visit a doctor who tell them that they are healthy and they will have many years ahead of th [...]

    20. Sophie Kinsella has always been one of my go to favourite authors I remember the enjoyment of reading the Shopaholic series for the first time and now I have reread them countless times along with each of her standalone novels.For each following novel that she publishes, part of me gets nervous that I won t like the next one I am so happy to say that hasn t been the case for any of her novels and I have liked each with varying levels of enjoyment Always, I have liked what she has written.For thi [...]

    21. 3.5 starsWas I surprised about how much I enjoyed Sophie Kinsella s new novel Surprise Me Not at all I expected it to be an entertaining read and it absolutely was When it comes to Sophie Kinsella, the only surprise for me is that I haven t joined the millions of readers who love the Shopaholic series I can t seem to get into them and yet when it comes to her stand alone titles I m an avid fan Love Them So, when this title showed up I couldn t wait to start it And once I started I couldn t stop [...]

    22. I received this book for free through LibraryThing s Early Reviewers.I was so excited when I found out that I won this book because I absolutely love Sophie Kinsella s books They are always so hilarious and so much fun This book was no exception In the beginning it did start off a bit slow It took a while for the story and the surprises to actually start, but once they did, they really took off Many of the surprises were so hilarious, I found myself laughing out loud to myself The scenarios were [...]

    23. Romance week Would you believe that this is my first book by author Sophie Kinsella I own a few of her Shopaholic series that I picked up at library sales but haven t gotten around to reading any yet This is a standalone book and starts off well with lots of laughs Sylvie and Dan Winter, both aged thirty two, visit a new doctor for their physical He jokingly tells them that because they are in such good health, there is a good chance they will live to be 100 or beyond, meaning they could be marr [...]

    24. 3.5 stars The thing about reading a Sophie Kinsella book is that you know your going to have a fun reading experience In this book, we meet married couple Dan and Sylvie They have just been told that they re healthy and may live a long married life So they decide that if they are going to have 68 years together, they should have surprises for each other so their marriage doesn t get stale The thing about surprises, though, is that you may get than you bargained for There were a few laugh out mo [...]

    25. I thoroughly enjoyed this this book Surprisinly, this is the first time I have read Sophie Kinsella s work and I was well pleased with it It was fun and had quirky characters that I grew to love This story goes deeper than that and it faces what is deep behind face value and trust issues one faces This novel was full of unexpected surprises and was truly heartfelt I am glad that I picked up this book and finished it within a few sittings

    26. Mini review I received this e arc via Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.DNFDespite the not so great synopsis I wanted to read this anyways After all it s a Kinsella book Unfortunately it wasn t any good The main characters were supremely dumb Her 20 year characters in other books have sense then the husband and wife in this book Now mind you I thought the whole thing was bogus to begin with I had no idea that this was a legit science And even if it is true I still don [...]

    27. No other author provides an escape from reality for me quite like Sophie Kinsella, I ve been a fan of hers for years and picking up one of her books is always a treat for me Her books are pure, lighthearted, entertainment and are always fun, and though I didn t like Sylvie as much as my beloved Becky Bloomwood I did enjoy her and lost myself in her story easily.This definitely had Kinsella s signature charm and wit, she has the ability to craft quirky, lovable heroines who are the every woman th [...]

    28. Well, Surprise Me did, in fact, surprise me Based on the blurb, I expected this to be your typical, run of the mill, chick lit book And it definitely started out that way But then it grew to be something .From page one, Kinsella grabbed me with her typical charm and humor It was fun and entertaining to read this story through Sylvie s narration, which felt like talking to a friend who is funny without trying to be She makes up words just to describe her husband, like scrubcious and tentery, and [...]

    29. Sylvie Dan have been together for ten years Seven of those they ve been married And they have adorable five year old twin daughters They re as happy as any couple could be They have a good life A great house, a good sex life They finish each other s sentences Everything is good.But when you tell the preacher at your wedding that you ll do this married thing until death bla bla you never really think how long that time can be.A doctor just told Sylvie Dan that due to their good genes and family h [...]

    30. Sylvie and Dan seem to have a great marriage, but at a doctor s appointment they learn that statistically they ll be married 68 years This book is how they deal with that prospect, and it has some interesting things to say about relationships, family, loss, and longevity That all sounds pretty serious, but it was actually quite funny, and both the main characters and the side characters were enjoyable.
