Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella

Released: 2009

Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella is loads of fun, and one of my favorite novels of all time. This book is relatively lengthy and sits at about 430 pages, but so fast-paced you'll breeze right through it.

Remember Me? begins in 2004. Lexi Smart — a nerd with bad hair, ugly teeth, a depressing job, and a lame boyfriend, goes out one night to enjoy drinks with friends. After leaving the bar, Lexi trips down a flight of stairs, hits her head on the pavement, and walks to the nearest hospital for a checkup. The next thing she knows, she's waking up in 2007 with beautiful hair, perfect teeth, a job high up on the corporate ladder, and a handsome, rich husband!

Lexi's new, improved life sounds picture-perfect, doesn't it? But it's not long before Lexi realizes her new life isn't perfect after all, and that the future version of herself has a LOT of secrets.

Remember Me? is difficult to put down. Lexi is completely relatable. The "new" Lexi has a countless number of super powers, such as being able to walk perfectly in high heels and do power-yoga moves without breaking a sweat. How many times have we wanted to wake up with these skills, and also have our physical flaws disappear?

However, Lexi learns that her superficial life isn't what she wants after all. She's in a loveless marriage and unhappy with the overall state of her life. I'd hate to give away spoilers given how much I love this book. I will say that my favorite character is Jon — the architect who works for Lexi's husband. Jon is a charmer, for sure.

Other amazing novels written by Sophie Kinsella include:
