Can you keep a secret?

Today I finally finished reading Sophie Kinsella's book, Can you keep a secret? It was quite entertaining, I have to admit. I also read, some time ago, the shopaholic series. Kinsella's writing is easy to follow&funny. I like getting my mind of my daily routine, entertain while reading about funny characters and their lives.

Here are the first lines from the book. Maybe they'll make you curious and if you do decide to read the book, you have nothing to loose, I assure you!

CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET?

One

Of course I have secrets.
Of course I do. Everyone has a few secrets. It's completely normal. I'm not talking about big, earth-shattering secrets. Not the-president-is planning-to-bomb-Japan-and-only-Will-Smith-can-save-the-world type secrets. Just normal, everyday little secrets.
Like, for example, here are a few random secrets of mine, off the top of my head:
1. My Kate Spade bag is a fake.
2. I love sweet sherry, the least cool drink in the universe.
3. I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even exactly what it is.
4. I weigh 128 pounds. Not 118, like my boyfriend, Connor, thinks. (Although, in my defense, I was planning to go on a diet when I told him that. And, to be fair, it is only one number different.)
5. I've always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.
6. Sometimes, when we're right in the middle of passionate sex, I suddenly want to laugh.
7. I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur.
8. I've already drunk the wine that Dad told me to save for twenty years.
9. Sammy the goldfish at home isn't the same goldfish that Mum and Dad gave me to look after when they went to Egypt.
10. When my colleague Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.)
11. I once had this weird lesbian dream about my flatmate Lissy.
12. My G-string is hurting me.
13. I've always had this deep-down conviction that I'm not like everybody else, and there's an amazingly exciting new life waiting for me just around the corner.
14. I have no idea what this guy in the gray suit is going on about.
15. Plus, I've already forgotten his name.
And I only met him ten minutes ago.


So, get yourself a cup of tea, sit comfortably on the couch and learn to keep (some) secrets! ;)

P.S. You might actually want to visit Sophie Kinsella's official site; make sure you do so if you want to learn more about her and her books, it's colorful and fun!

Sweet treats,
