Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella
Sophie Kinsella is my favourite chick lit author ever! Her shopaholic series is a killer and I have read every single book of hers! In all her books, there is always this ditzy, crazy, hyperventilating female character somewhat like Rebecca Bloomwood in the shopaholic series. I got her latest book – Wedding Night – through paying SGD1.55 reservation fee to our National Library and got it within 3 days after reserving for it! Weee! This beats paying twenties for a book I’m unlikely to read again and definitely beats waiting in line without reserving for the book!
So back to this book. Lottie (the crazy character) is insane. She misinterpreted her boyfriend’s recent behaviour as an upcoming proposal only to be dashed by the truth nothing close to a ring. After having her dreams dashed, she broke up with her boyfriend, met her teenage summer fling and got proposed by the very same summer fling who was having his own mid life crisis! The worst of all, she accepted the proposal! Her sister Fliss and her newly wed husband’s best man, Lorcan had a plan which does not involved tossing rose petals at a church wedding.
This novel is not for the faint hearted and I’m not sure what I would do if I am Fliss. Lock up my little sister or poison my future brother in law? But the plan which Fliss came up with was hilarious and unconventional. This is an entertaining read just for the fun of it.
