Book Review For Can You Keep A Secret – Secrets She Wouldn’t Share With Anyone

Author – Sophie Kinsella

Book Review For Can You Keep A Secret

Emma Corrigan is a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit and a few little secrets. Secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone, until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on the plane… at least she thought he was a stranger.

Until she comes face to face with Jack Harper, the companies CEO, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her.



I gave this 5 stars.

My Thoughts

I found this book so funny and I couldn’t put it down, the main character is so lovable. Emma is a typical girl, just like you and me. She’s just trying to find her feet in the big wide world around her. She’s outrageous, bonkers and a tad paranoid, its so funny to read.

Why I Enjoyed This Read

Sophie kensella is one of my all time favorite writers, her style of book is just what I look for in a book, a tint of romance, humor, lightness and fun.

Who Would Enjoy This Read

Someone looking for a funny, light, well written and easy to read book should 100% read this book.

Overall Thoughts

This is a really cute, fluffy, funny read. I spend the whole time reading it, giggling my head off. Top tip, don’t read this in public, its very likely you’ll look like a right goof at times.

    Love your site! I’m a huge fan of books and discovering new authors. I’m definitely looking forward to checking this book out because it sounds like something I’m not supposed to be reading, lol.

    I do have a question for you: Do you prefer e-readers, or do you prefer a physical book when reading? I would love to hear your thoughts!

    • Jayde Butcher

      I do love reading from my kindle as I can lay on my side in bed a lot easier and hold it ha, but its always a good feeling to own a paperback for my book shelve, how about you?

  • Amy

    Love your site and really enjoyed this book too. Completely agree with you about not reading it in public – I looked like an idiot as couldn’t help laughing out loud at some parts! Look forward to your next review.

  • Vicki

    This sounds like my kind of book! Great review and i agree with Ruby, you have already got me hooked. I want to know her secrets!!! I haven’t heard of this author before so your site is amazing at introducing new books/authors to its readers. Great job! Oh and I must say I much prefer a physical book in my hand over an e-reader.

  • Chris

    Haven’t really heard of Sophie Kensella before – has she released many titles before this one?

    I must say it’s really refreshing to find a website that covers books in this day and age, I love reading and always will (proper books NOT kindle files!!!). 

    I was hoping that the book would have a thriller element to it after your introduction, but I can see that it may be sliding towards the humorous comedy angle – would I be correct in thinking so?

    Thanks for the review though either way – great to find a blogger who has the same passion for reading!

    This book sounds like something my cousin would love to read, she is 12 years old and really love to read these kind of light hearted comedy books. Do you think this book would be a good read for someone around middle school aged? I’m thinking of getting her a Christmas present and this sound like just the thing she would want.

    Maybe I’ll get her a couple of books. You said Sophie kensella is one of your favorite writers, what other books do you enjoy by her and that you would recommend?


    This book definitely sounds like a good read. And when you mentioned her meeting with Jack Harper, I started feeling some pressure and suspense. LOL. It felt like I was the one standing face to face to Mr. Harper, and just how much did Jack Harper know?

    Ouch, by the way, have you watched the movie, ”OBLIVION”? The main actor was Tom Cruise who played ”Jack Harper”. What a coincidence. 

    I’m going to get a copy of that book. I need to inject some lightheartedness into my schedule right now. Thanks for such a brief but straight to the point post.

    Sounds like a great book. I can’t wait to read it. 

    What a funny situation. If it happened to me, I would want to show my face again. Such a comedy of errors.

    Sophie Kensella is a great author and I love her writing. I also recommend “The Undomestic Goddess” and “remember me?”. Sophie Kensella always succeeds in inventing a great impossible situation and great female hero characters.

    Good Morning Jayde,

    The title made me smile a bit. It is funny that the word “secret” does not mean the same for all people. Even when you share a secret with your best girlfriend it is not a secret anymore. I have experienced that sharing so called secrets with too many people might not be a good idea.

    Now the book tells a fictitious story but these things happen in real life more than often. I bet it is a fun book to read so thank you for this nice review.

    Regards, Taetske

    Haven’t read anything about Sophie Kensella before but this might be the start. I was looking for a nice book for quite some time now and this seems like the good one for me. Thank you so much for the review. I can say that I can identify with the main character so will be funny to read! Keep up the good work! Love your website

    ‘Can You Keep A Secret’ by Sophie Kinsella seems like a book I’d like to read if your review is anything to go by. I am sure this would be a great read for me and I think am going to ‘fall in love’ with Emma, the main character. I like funny reads and I can’t wait to grab a copy of this book.

    Many thanks and best regards
